In brief: Vaginal

Symptoms of a yeast infection may include: burning, redness & itching of the vulva; burning with urination & vaginal intercourse & a clumpy, white, vaginal discharge with no odor. Sometimes the discharge isn’t apparent.
Irritation alone should not cause a vaginal discharge. Dr can test to differentiate.
