Yes, symptoms: Symptoms of vaginal itching/burning, discharge are clues for bacterial vaginosis &/or yeast overgrowth. Yeast is normal in vagina; its growth is usually kept under control by lactobacilli also there normally. Any time u take antibiotics or douche too frequently, u can upset balance, resulting in yeast overgrowth & discharge. Let symptoms be guide to seek doc's help.
