So I've had more discharge than usual, it slightly stings when I pee, and today I'm quite itchy as well. It's not an STI as I've just been tested. I'm thinking it could be a yeast infection or something. But of course it's Saturday so I can't go to the doctor. Should I try and get to an out-of-hours service? I feel a bit bad as it's not an emergency, but it is uncomfortable. If I can't get to see someone today is there anything I can do to make it more comfortable until Monday?

Still a bit itchy and stings a bit when I pee. It's not really that bad tbh, but it doesn't feel right. It's going to be awkward for me to get to a doctor next week as well. Bah.
It's struck me that it might be a reaction to a shower gel I use (which I've had a reaction to before and stopped using, but went back to it when I ran out of soap. Oops.). Does that sound possible?

It's very possible that it's the shower gel causing the irritation, so definitely hold off on using that gel and see if, after a day or so, you're still itchy or not. If you still find that your vulva is itchy/irritated even after that, you could go to a local walk-in health clinic (if there are any near you) -- we could help you find one if you'd like.
