Understanding Your Yeast Infection Symptoms

By Kathryn Whittaker

If a woman believes she is experiencing signs of infection for the first time, she should see the doctor immediately if she is unsure of the treatment. The doctor will know the proper diagnosis for this type of infection.

Many people ask what the common yeast infection symptoms are. A woman can tell if she suffering if she has a thick vaginal discharge which looks a little like a cottage. But this symptom can be experienced by only about 20% of women who have yeast infections. The discharge may contain a starchy be yellow in color.

In view of the fact that not all women experience a discharge, the easiest way to tell if a woman has yeast infection is if she experiences itchiness in and around her vagina. The itchiness may go hand in hand with a burning sensation. The outer area and the vulva area can become swollen and red, this can result in painful urination and sexual intercourse may also be painful too.

These are the most common and general symptoms of yeast infection, but a woman may experience different symptoms. The best way to determine is by checking for changes in discharge.

Sometimes, a yeast infection may be mistaken as a urinary tract infection, but there is a difference between the two in terms of the burning sensation experienced. In a urinary tract infection, a woman can feel the burning when urine passes down the urethra when it is on its way out, this is different to yeast infections when the burning is caused as the acidic urine hits the irritated skin of the vulva.

It may be quite hard to tell whether you have a yeast infection or a urinary tract infection if you are experiencing symptoms for the first time. It is advisable to see a doctor if any of these signs appear. After you have been diagnosed, the next time you experience burning and itchiness, you will be better placed to know whether it is a yeast infection or a urinary tract infection.

Men are also susceptible suffering with yeast infections although it is unusual for men to develop them they are normally passed on from their female partners. Therefore, it is essential that if you or your partner develops a yeast infection you refrain from unprotected sex until you have both sought treatment. The danger is when only one partner seeks treatment, as the infection can be passed back and forth. For men, yeast infection symptoms can be identified through an itching, red rash and burning at the head of his penis.

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
