yeast infection...bv...?

ever since my period i have had on and off itching and a discharge. the discharge is a yellow colour, not really thick but not watery, has a definite odor and there is a fair bit of it. the itching has been there some days but not others. i was thinking it was a yeast infection but i have been told that yeast infections are odorless and that i would have intense itching every day, not every once in a while. i have had a yeast infection before but never bv. can anyone tell me if this sounds like bv or just another yeast infection?

    Hello, I'm on the second week and seeing definite improvement on my yeast infection symptoms:

    Note that: If the yeast infection doesn't respond to over the counter treatment, prescription medication will likely be necessary. Similarly, if the symptoms return after two months of being treated, you should contact the doctor for professional treatment rather than resorting again to home treatment.

    If this is the first time you have experienced a yeast infection, you should schedule an appointment to have the condition treated by a doctor instead of resorting to home treatment

    Don't self diagnose! Go to the doctor where they will get lab work done to make sure it's nothing more serious. There is so many things that it can indicate. I think you'd rather find the source and solve the problem than guess what it is.

    If you don't like that answer, I think there an over the counter test you can take that will tell you if it's yeast or not.

    yeast infections are not odorless. Go to the store and buy some monitstat. Use it, and it should be gone in about a week. I helped my ex with her first one. Also, yogurt doesnt hurt every now and then.

    Hi Lyndsay M,

    Not sure which one it is but if you are looking for a natural cure for both see the links below. The over the counter meds DO NOT work as I'm sure you know.

    I need to see some photos if I'm really going to be able to help. If you stick in your thumb, can you pull out a plum?
