STD vs yeast: No STD causes yeast infections. Usually vaginal yeast infections cause no discharge, or only a slight amount, usually white and thick. The main symptoms of yeast are itching, irritation, and sometimes redness. There are many causes of vaginal discharge, including STDs. Color (yellow, greenish, etc) and odor are common with STD discharges. Since you're concerned about STD, for sure get tested.
