White/yellowish w/ mild cheesy odor discharge bad itching & irritation on vulva.I been using perfumed soaps, sprays, vaginal cleansers.What could it be?

Yeast: This sounds classic for yeast infection. Soaps, sprays and cleansers won't help, you may need an antifungal such as one that's available over the counter at your local grocery or drugstore. It's also possible that you have bacterial vaginosis, which is overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. See a doctor or start with antifungal and see if that helps. Stop all sprays, creams = could make worse. ...Read more

 pain with urination ( stinging or burning sensation) , vaginal itching, vaginal tenderness and pain during sex. okay to treat with monistat?

Maybe OK, but...: If you've had yeast and symptoms are the same now, self Rx w/ Monistat probably is OK. Otherwise, see a doctor for professional care. If you just can't (cost, etc), then probably OK to give it a try -- but if it doesn't clear up within 5-7 days, you definitely must see a doctor. At age 18, many things can mimic yeast, especially STDs. Don't take chances! ...Read more

Proper pelvic and speculum vaginal exam along with appropriate cultures of discharge should provide correct diagnosis. Likely not a yeast infection given your hx and prior antifungal use ...Read more
