Sorry that you are having such a rough time. It doesn't sound like a yeast infection as there is usually no odour, except maybe a bread like smell. Symptoms for yeast are thick, whitish like cottage cheese and very itchy. It sounds like you might have a bacterial infection. Is it really foul like a strong fishy odour? Then it is bacterial. UTI's are also bacterial, so you could have that too. I would recommend drinking plenty of water if you are breastfeeding and pure cranberry is good for this too.

It's good that you are seeing a Dr. as you will most likely need an antibiotic. You should take a pro-biotic as to not GET a yeast infection. Hope you feel better soon.

I'm sorry that you've been having such a rough recovery. I agree that doesn't sound like a yeast infection. Did you see the doctor and get your answer! I surely hope so!!


Congrats on your new bundle of joy!
