    Do You Have a Yeast Infection?
    Debby Herbenick, PhD, MPH posted:
    Many women wonder if they have a yeast infection. And unfortunately, many women diagnose themselves with a yeast infection when often they have another vaginal or vulvar condition that is causing similar symptoms.

    In this very good WebMD video, Dr. Laura Corio explains why women should not self-diagnose themselves with yeast infection or use over the counter yeast treatments without a diagnosis from a doctor or nurse. To learn more about yeast infections, you can also check out The V Book: A Doctor's Guide to Complete Vulvovaginal Health. And if you have questions about your own health or whether or not you have a yeast infection, please call your doctor or nurse.
