    Maybe a yeast infection?
    Anon_232390 posted:
    I think that I have a yeast infection but I am not completely sure. I am just a tiny bit sore which I only notice when I wipe and not every time, Yesterday I had a small amount of cottage cheese, which was then replaced by thick white and then thick clear. ( It is not EWCM ). I am also just a little itchy. It isnt a constant thing so I am not sure. Ive only had 3 yeast infections in my life. Once on a antibiotics and once at the very beginning of my pregnancies. And all of those were alot worse. I am due for my period soon. I have pcos and all those i have af almost every month, it varies between 30 and 35 days. My last period was brown bleed sept 18th... Red bleed sept 24th... 2 weeks later I had one day of very light spotting ( no red ). Anyways this all just started yesterday and I was thinking of getting something OTC. Does this sound like a yeast infection?
    Jane Harrison Hohner, RN, RNP responded:
    Dear Anon: If you have no risks for a new STD, and a prior history of yeast, then it is a reasonable option to try an over the counter product containing miconazole or clotrimazole and see if the symptoms abate. It's not uncommon for yeast to overgrow prior to menses.
