How do you know if you have a yeast infection? What are at least 10 signs of one?
Thanks ahead of time.

What symptoms are you experiencing? If you are experiencing ANY ONE of these symptoms, it could be a yeast infection or something else. It is important to call your doctor, so you can receive treatment promptly (it's easier to treat, and you don't have to suffer as long!).

* Vaginal itching, ranging from mild to severe
* A clumpy, vaginal discharge that may look like cottage cheese
* Vaginal soreness, irritation, or burning
* Rash or redness on the skin outside the vagina
* Painful urination
* Painful sexual intercourse

Hi Yoyoyo,

To answer that question, every woman is different so if you are unsure, you should really seek physicians assistance.

I hope this helps.
