White discharge inside vagina, bumps outside of vagina, tiny cut on vagina lip. Hurts slightly but no itching. Unable to see doctor. Could it be yeast?

It could be: Is it REALLY a cut? Did you/someone visualize it? Often people describe the feeling as if there were a cut of some sort but actually there's no break in the skin and it's just from the intense irritation. Your best bet is to see your doctor for direct examination of the area, the discharge, and obvious culture. You'll no doubt be placed on some type of prescription & no Sex right now. ...Read more

Have swollen lymph nodes around pubic bone. Vaginal discomfort, feels swollen. Little odorless discharge, pelvis feels tender. Is it yeast infectio?

Atypical for yeast: These are not typical symptoms for yeast, which doesn't cause enlarged lymph nodes or pevlic tenderness -- but both may depend on exactly where the discomfort is located. Other infections are more likely; or a non-infectious cause. Herpes or another STD might be possible, but of course only if you are at risk (new or unsafe partner, etc). Best to not speculate and see a doctor ASAP. Good luck. ...Read more
