Yeast or STD
Posted on: 06/26/2009
Im 16 years old and two days ago I became alerted when I realized some itchiness on my inner labia. As of today, the itchiness has gotten worse and it is sort of painful to walk, sit down and urinate. I haven't had sex but have been sexually active for two years. I dont THINK this has ever happened before. Do you know what is wrong with me? Could I actually have an STD? Or is it simply a yeast infection? Is this treatable? How so? Please help!
Please relax and try warm baths and an over-the-counter yeast medicine. Make an appointment with Planned Parenthood or a doctor to find out what is up! Good luck!
