The day after my period went off , my vagina started itching very badly . This was my first time every feeling anything like this . I searched the symptoms and it seems as if it a yeast infection . I never had a yeast infection . The itching got worse and started burning . I thought about going to the health department , but I don't have any insurance and don't know how much everything would cost . I called the health department and told them about everything , they said it was a yeast infection and told me to buy Monistat 7 . I purchased the Monistat 7 and used it . I can say the itching and burning has calmed down a little but after 3 days , it's still the same . I can not take the the pain , and I want to go to the health department but I'm scared it would be too expensive and I won't be able to afford it .
