Vagina itches? Yeast infection? What over-the-counter medicine to use? How long to wait to have sex?

In brief: See below

If you have itch with white (sometimes chalky) discharge that does not have a fishy odor, then you likely have a yeast infection.
You can try Monistat or one of the other OTC meds for this. However, these may not be effective. In that case, your doctor can prescribe a prescription anti-fungal. Would recommend until it clears up before having sex.
