I thought I had a yeast infection (my first one) because after I peed my vagina burned and itched like crazy. But I didn't have the cottage cheese thing going on down there. And I had started washing with a very scented body wash that looks like it caused it. I also was experiencing abdominal pain but its a week before my period and I thought it had no relation to the yeast infection. Well I just finished the 3rd day of the Monistat last night and the symptoms went away almost completely but now I have just a slight burn and itch after I pee. And I have not had sex so I know it can't be a lot of other things. Is it a UTI? Or is it just taking a while for the symptoms to go away?
