My vagina felt sore during sex the other day and its been feeling kind of itchy lately, now i started to notice that my discharge has a different texture, like paste. I'm supposing this is a yeats infection. I have an appointment with the gyno but its not for another 3 weeks. Do you think it would be okay to take a yeast infection medication, like Monistat??? It says you shouldn't use it if you've never had a yeat infection before, but I can't wait 3 weeks until my appointment. Also, what are the causes of a yeast infection???

You can see a GP, go to a walk-in clinic, or try some home remedies. But give the Monistat a miss.

Yeast infections are caused by, well, yeast, a tiny fungus that both gives us bread and irritation. Check out our Infection Section for more info.
