I am 17 years old. Up until a month ago I was a virgin. I've been dating my boyfriend Adam for a little over a year. I haven't told anyone that I'm sexually active now, only Adam & I know. We've only had sex maybe 4 times and each time we used protection. I have an itch, nothing intense, in my vagina. When I checked myself out I noticed inside my vaginal opening there was white stuff. I think I may have a yeast infection, but I don't know what I'm supposed to do. I keep my body clean and I am scared about what has happened. How do I go about seeking medical attention without getting my parents involved? I haven't told anyone about this and I'm really just looking for advice on what to do. Any advice will help, thank you. Also, I will be turning 18 in about 2 months... should I wait until then? Please help.
