Yeast infection: You might develop a yeast infection if you were given an antibiotic around the time of the abortion. Of course some women get them for no apparent reason, as well. Typical symptoms of a yeast infection could include itching, burning, and a thick white discharge with no odor. If you have never had a yeast infection before, you should have your Gyn check to make sure that's the problem.
Vaginal itching and burning after having a lot of sex. What is causing it? Could it be a yeast infection? How do I treat it?
Try condom: The vaginal vault could be too dry and rubbing would result in itching and burning. Semen may be the trigger altering your vagina’s chemistry. Other possible triggers are lowered immune resistance, douching, birth control pills, antibiotics, or cuts, abrasions, or other vaginal irritation (friction from intercourse, fingers or fingernails, or tampons). You might try a lubricated condom.See 2 more doctor answers

Itching burning and irritation so if it's not an std, could it be a bacterial or yeast infection?
Possibly: Since you are uncertain, recommend medical evaluation.
Antifungal medicines: There are several products available otc such as vagisil and monistat which can be quite helpful. Gentle cleansing with mild soap/warm water and use of above products. They only work for fungal/yeast infections and nothing else, thus make sure it is the right diagnosis. So, if your symptoms don't get better with such treatment, consult doc for an evaluation. Good luck.See 2 more doctor answers
I have internal white clumpy discharge but no itching burning or smell! Is this a yeast infection?
Possibly: Vaginal yeast infections are common in women but usually associated with itching, burning, and odor. White clumpy discharge may not be an infection with yeast or other organism. Could just be normal or possibly associated with reaction to birth control pills or other meds, or possibly a lubricant. But be sure to see your doctor to get tested for yeast or std to be on safe side.See 1 more doctor answer
