Do I need treatment for my vaginal yeast infection if i'm not experiencing any symptoms?

No: My question would be how you have that diagnosis in the absence of symptoms. Sometimes a pap result will report the presence of yeast and some will treat based on this finding. Yeast is not an abnormal finding in and of itself. The overgrowth of yeast is abnormal and leads to the characteristic discharge and symptoms. The mere presence of yeast does not necessarily warrant treatment.
