Ok, so I have had a stronger odor down there lately, like really strong and bad. I don't think I have a yeast infection because I am not itchy and I don't have chunky discharge. Is there a way to test for a yeast infection without going to the doctor?

I know they sell those test strips at the store these days (I don't remember the brand. Maybe Monistat?)- but honestly it sounds like it's probably a yeast infection.

I got them CONSTANTLY with Holden with ZERO symptoms (no itching, no odor, no discharge). Always pissed me off and embarrassed me to go to the doctor and be told I had one when I had no clue

Yeah they sell a test kit that you can get in a drug store or wherever. I think they are somewhere between $15 and $20 though and if you test positive you'd still have to go to the Dr so you might as well just go to the Dr and save yourself the money.

I would go to the doctor as it might be bacterial vaginosis too.

Please kup!

Yes they do have those hope test things you can use, but it is possible to have a yeast infection with out the itch

Best to go to the Dr, it could be something other than a yeast infection. Hopefully it clears up soon!
