Ok I talked to my ob/gyn and she says I have a yeast infection. I have no idea how I got one. Also I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend in the beginning of August. I havent had sex since August fifth. A couple weeks after that I started going to the bathroom a lot more than normal, i was irritated a lot by the simplest things, I was tired all the time. I ate a lot and my appetite was never that bad before, I got dizzy at the most random times and I almost passed out once, also I had the feeling like I wanted to puke. I missed my period on August 23 and about a week after that I woke up and it looked like I had gotten my period. It was enough to fill the toilet once and then really light. Normally my periods are super heavy and I go through maybe four or five pads a day. This time I am lucky if I fill a half of one in a day. So I guess my question is what could possibly be causing this and why?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms (frequent urination, irritation, increased tiredness, increased appetite, dizziness, nausea, missed period, shorter and lighter/abnormal period) that you describe could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and after intercourse can make vagina more susceptible to infection. If infection is detected, get started on appropriate treatment at the earliest. Get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. If pregnancy is suspected, go ahead with visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately).
Take care.
