3. Yeast Infection
Much like B.V., a yeast infection occurs when there is an imbalance in the natural pH levels of the vagina. Yeast infections can occur at random and can be the result of a change in diet, a course of antibiotics, sex or even periods of stress. Thick white discharge usually accompanies a yeast infection but the good news is that they can be easily and effectively treated by a number of dedicated over the counter medications.
