Can you have a yeast infection without much discharge (instead - red, irritated, burning skin on the vulva, little itchiness)?

Can you have a yeast infection without much discharge (instead - red, irritated, burning skin on the vulva, little itchiness)?

Typical symptoms!: Contrary to what you seem to think (or what you have been told), increased discharge is not one of the main symptoms of yeast. Your own symptoms are EXACTLY what I teach medical students to look for and patients to be aware of. See a doctor to confirm the diagnosis. Or you can try an over the counter yeast medication -- then see the doc if symptoms don't clear up in a few days. Good luck! ...Read more

I had a yeast infection I think but its been 7 days I still dont feel right and almost looks like I have a  bloody discharge?

See a doctor ASAP: Any unexplained vaginal discharge needs professional evaluation. Most likely it wasn't yeast; or it was yeast plus something else. Discharge with blood suggests infection.

Why would i have a pink discharge after a yeast infection?

Why would  i have a pink discharge after a yeast infection?

Probably not yeast: Yeast infections typically do not cause colored discharge. Pink suggests possible bleeding, which could happen with severe yeast (with vulvar fissures, sores, etc) -- but not "after" a yeast infection is gone. You might have something else, such as an STD if at risk. In any case, recheck with your doctor soon and follow her advice. ...Read more
