I was experiencing a fishy odor and itching after my period. I'm on the pill so I get a brown discharge after my periods and I thought nothing of it but it started to be uncomfortable. I talked to my sister and she said I had a yeast infection so I used the 1-Day combo pack on Saturday. It's Monday now and the odor has lessened but there's still some discharge and itching. Am I okay? Should I go to the doctor? I've never had a yeast infection before so I'm really embarrassed and I don't know what to do. I'm scared there's something wrong with me!! Help!!!
Yeast infections are incredibly common and there is nothing shameful about admitting to having one (here anyway). I would be inclined to ask a female pharmacist what she thinks and recommends (not the shop girls). If she is professional it won't even raise an eyebrow. I wouldn't ask a man unless he was a doctor (men lack empathy).
Yeast doesn't have an odor. I would see a dr particularly since you've treated for yeast and still have symptoms. There are other infections that it could be and none should cause embarrassment.
