How Do I Know It’s a Vaginal Yeast Infection?

6 main symptoms:

  • Itching

  • Swelling

  • Redness

  • Unusual discharge

  • Burning

  • Soreness

A vaginal yeast infection doesn’t usually change the pH level and has no odour, but you might feel pain during sex or urination.

No stress!

It may feel uncomfortable, but there’s no need to be scared. A yeast infection is not an STI and is usually not a serious  condition, and in most cases it can be treated easily and effectively. It is also normal and very common — 3 in 4 women suffer from it at least once during their lifetime and it’s not caused by a lack of hygiene.
