Lately, I've had more discharge than usual, and I've felt (mildly) itchy and uncomfortable. I had a yeast infection a few years ago with similar symptoms (at least, the yeast infection treatment worked), and I'm not sexually active, so it's unlikely to be any sort of STI. I plan on phoning my doctor tomorrow, but I'm a little nervous only because I know that these kinds of symptoms can be quite a number of things. Will yeast infections show all symptoms? Are they always accompanied by great, clumpy discharge, or can there be other signs instead?

Yeast infections usually result in both itching/irritation and clumpy discharge, but sometimes it's just the itch or just the discharge. Itching and more discharge than usual can be caused by all sorts of things though, so the best thing you can do is to get checked out by a doctor.

Thank you for the pointer. I went to the uni health centre today, and it was just a mild imbalance. They gave me some cream to help clear it up. A relief!
