    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Need help.. Std? Yeast Infection? Something else?
    littleone_xo posted:
    I burn and itch. Sometimes a lot sometimes mostly at night. From scratching so much i sometimes get small paper cuts like from all the irritation. It occasionally burns when I urinate or have sex. Every once in a while I get lower abdominal pains. I had unprotected sex 8 to 9 months ago. I also have an IUD(Mirena). Could this be a STD or just a yeast infection? Or can this be from my IUD? Need advice please!

    An internet board cannot tell you if these symptoms are due to a yeast infection or and STD.

    However, because you have engaged in unprotected intercourse (and, I'm assuming, did not confirm your partners STD status), it would be a very good idea to consider some STD testing to rule this out.
