if you have a cottage cheese like discharge what does this mean?

A cottage cheese discharge is most characteristic of a yeast infection (YI). YI is caused by Candida, a normal inhabitant of the vagina. When woman are treated with antibiotics they can get a YI and it can occur when there is a change in vaginal pH or even diet, as well as with increased stress. These are easily treated with Vaginal YI can be treated with over the counter preparation like clotrimazole or miconazole. The 3 or 7 day preparation works best, ***** ***** you apply some cream to the outside of the vagina as well as inside the vagina.

Hope this helps.
