BV? STD?: Yeast infections usually cause only a little discharge, or none; yeast discharge usually is white, not colored; and yeast discharges don't have strong odor. So this is something else.

It depends.: Sometimes women have both problems together. If a culture was done that showed yeast forms than the treatment will help.

Itching and a thick white discharge would be more consistent with Candida. ...Read more
