I'm 20 and I've probably looked at my vagina less than 10 in the past year.but in the past two weeks I've been obssessed with my vagina because I had a really bad yeast infection which I got treated...Ok,I have this white fleshy looking stuff inside my vagina.I've never thought much of it because for as long as I've had my period it's been there,especially when I masturbate a lot.I can literally scrape it out with my fingernails .I've looked up yeast infection symtoms and while the white clotty discharge is there,there isn't any smell,itching,swelling etc...yeah,and it tastes line something with an alkaline-base covers face
What's going on here...with me
that's what i've been told but i'm neurotic about stuff like this. i ran to the store and bought some vaginal cream,and used it,because...well,idk,i'm just scared that it might be another yeast infection coming on which makes me cringe because that wasn't the most confortable thing in the world.does anyone know how to preven yeast infections without medication?

Not eating a lot of sugar might help. Also, keeping yourself ventilated by not wearing tight pants or synthetic underwear. Eating a healthy diet and getting a decent amount of sleep should help keep your immune system strong, to keep the yeast from flourishing.
We're surrounded by the stuff...it's only when conditions are right that it starts growing rapidly.
