Yeast infection??? PLEAZ HELP!!!?



Okay..... You know right before you start you period and you get that clear gooey stuff on your underwear? well....Mine turned yellow and I am really scared if I have a yeast infection. I have never had one before. Could I die from it???? PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

i really hope you and me can find out the answer to this question
im freaked out but i hope its not true
You are not going to die. Go buy some over-the-counter medication (Monistat...etc) and it'll be fine in a couple days.

If you're sexually active you might want to go to the doctor and get tested. Yellow ooze may be a sign of an std.

Again, you are not going to die.
no you cant die, go to the dr they will perscribe you something
What Is a Yeast Infection?
A yeast infection, also known as candidiasis (pronounced: can-dih-die-uh-sis), is the name for a common infection caused by a type of yeast-like fungus called candida.

Yeast infections usually occur in warm, moist parts of the body, such as the mouth and moist areas of skin. When they cause an infection in the vagina, it is known as vulvovaginal candidiasis.

Candida can overgrow for many reasons. Stress, pregnancy, and illnesses that affect the immune system may allow yeast to multiply, as can certain medicines. These include some birth control pills and steroids. Or if you're taking antibiotics, such as for strep throat, the antibiotics can kill "good" bacteria that also live in the body and normally keep the growth of candida in the vagina in check. Yeast also can flourish if a girl's blood sugar is high. Girls who have diabetes that isn't controlled are at a higher risk for yeast infections.

Many girls find that yeast infections tend to show up right before they get their periods because of the hormonal changes that come with the menstrual cycle. Clothing (especially underwear) that is too tight or made of materials like nylon that trap heat and moisture might lead to yeast infections because yeast can thrive in this type of environment. And douching and using scented sanitary products can upset the healthy balance of bacteria in the vagina and make yeast infections more likely.

Yeast infections can happen to any girl, and they're not related to having sex ?although they occasionally can be spread from one sexual partner to the other. This is quite rare, though, and the partner of someone who has a yeast infection does not automatically have to be treated. Yeast infections that are spread through sex are not considered a sexually transmitted disease (STD). A doctor won't be able to tell how you got a yeast infection, but will be able to tell you if you really have one, and if so, how to treat it.

What Are the Symptoms of a Yeast Infection?
Common signs and symptoms of yeast infections include:

itching and irritation in the vagina
redness, swelling, or itching of the vulva (the folds of skin outside the vagina)
a thick, white discharge that can look like cottage cheese and is usually odorless, although it might smell like bread or yeast
pain or burning when urinating or during sex
If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor or gynecologist. It's easy to confuse the symptoms of a yeast infection with those of some STDs and other vaginal infections. Your doctor can give you the right diagnosis.
Probably not. Just because it's yellow doesn't mean its bad. It could just mean that your urine, which may be yellow, had mixed with your discharge. Also, there are other signs of a yeast infection such as itching and redness of the vagina. And, No, you will not die from it if yo have it. Better yet, go to the doctor to get checked out and put your fears to rest.
note by my knowledge you cannot die from it but go to a docter and check to make sure anyhow... it could be something else...
No, you won't die from it, but you need to get treatment asap.
You really should see a doctor since you have never had an infection before. It could be a simple yeast infection or it could be something else.
