Yeast infections itch (some very badly), and can burn sometimes. The best way is to go to a doctor to make sure it is just a yeast infection, not a STD.

You may get discharge(if you are 16 and younger it might just be puberty) also it may burn when you pee and itchy private. or burning when you DONT pee.

Every woman will experience a yeast infection in different ways and for some symptoms may be worse than others.

Yeast infection symptoms can range from mild to moderate and include:
- Itching and irritation in the vagina and at the entrance to the vagina (vulva)
- A burning sensation, especially during intercourse or while urinating
- Redness and swelling of the vulva
- Vaginal pain and soreness
- Thick, white, odor-free vaginal discharge with a cottage cheese appearance

And if you have above symptoms, it is mostly like yeast infection. However, if you are not sure, you could consult online doctors, like Wuhan Dr. Lee's TCM Clinic for help.

If you think that you have a yeast infection it's best to go to your doctor to confirm - especially if sexually active in case it is something more serious. You can use an over-the-counter yeast infection treatment once you know that it is a yeast infection.

Yes, it is common to get yeast infections during pregnancy. You need to call your OB and let them know you think you have a yeast infection. They will let you know how to handle it. Prenatal care is VERY important.....because even something simple like a Bladder infection (UTI) can cause preterm labor.
