I don't know that I'm pregnant yet (I have to wait another week to find out!), but I'm trying to act as if I am until I know. I'm worried that I have a yeast infection, and I don't want to take any medication if I don't need to. I have gotten this same type of itchiness every now and then (thought it's probably been two years since this last happened), and I've never taken any medication. I just eat yogurt a lot, and it eventually goes away on its own (within a week or so). Is this okay to do, or is there a benefit to using medication and getting rid of it more quickly? I'm also not even positive this is a yeast infection. I have the itchiness and slight burning feeling, but I don't have any strange vaginal discharge. This all started this time when I went on a trip this weekend and was wearing some tight jeans that I felt were chafing my "area" too much when I was sitting in the car.
