Yeast infections are pretty common problems, and easily diagnosed at your gyn or pcps office. They typically are a thick white discharge and have itching associated with it. To confirm the cause of infection your physician will usually take a small sample of the discharge and look at it under the microscope with a potassium hydroxide solution. Confirm it with your doc.
