Hey everyone! You are now watching The Naked Truth. Where we take one of your questions About sex and your body and give you a straightforward answer. I’m Shalpa, and let’s get started. So today’s question comes from a nineteen-year-old from (indistinct) I have severe itching around my vagina and I’m getting burning discharge. My friend said it’s a yeast infection, But is this an STD? I’ve never had sex. So from what it sounds like, you do have candidiasis, commonly known as a yeast infection. a fungus that grows in warm in moist places of the skin, such as your mouth or your vagina So normally, a woman’s vagina already has yeast. However, if there’s some sort of imbalance, this can lead to a buildup of excess yeast, which then results in white and odorless discharge, burning when you pee, and severe itchiness. But don’t worry! This is not an STI (sexually transmitted infection). It is an infection very common amongst women. So go ahead and consult a doctor to make sure that it is indeed a yeast infection, and he or she will give you some cream or some pills to have it cleared up in no time. In the future, make sure that you change your pad often, avoid scented soaps, and avoid wearing extremely tight clothing that trap in moisture to help prevent getting a yeast infection. So girls, I hope this helps, and I’d love to keep hearing from you So shoot me more questions at our email address, or SMS me.
