Well as some of you may know, I had a few posts in "Ask a Sexpert" about yeast infections and they pretty much told me to go to the doctor. No problem here. I tried making an appointment and I couldn't get in, so I'm going to try again on monday, but the weird thing is, all the symptoms I had (itchiness in and around the vaginal opening & pain while urinating) have suddenly disappeared!! I pretty much woke up one day and I felt nothing. It doesn't burn to go pee, it's not itchy and it doesn't hurt during intercourse. What's going on here?!! Has this ever happened to anyone? Is it possible that whatever I MAY have had (or didn't have) just went away? I'm very surprised that everything went away. Please help!! Thanks

Yeast infections are sneaky suckers. And what looks like a yeast infection could easily be just irritation during period time from pads or tampons ... But you're not a doctor. And neither are we. Your yeast infection may just be sleeping and could wake up any minute. Thats the way they work.
I gotta agree w/ those big bad sexperts and the other posters in this thread ... If this is your first yeast infection or there is any doubt in your mind that this is one, you need so see a doctor. Or plan to stop and scratch your crotch (which isn't recomended as this can cause little scratches, rashes and more irritation if you're not careful ... and how can you be? Fingernails don't belong in that area) every few seconds and wiggle your tushie everytime you get an itch. B/c it will come back. They don't go away on their own.
