what happens if you leave a yeast infection untreated?

What happens if you leave a yeast infection untreated or at least long before getting treatment?  
I hear that it does not go away on its own, is this true?

sometimes it can go away on its own, but most often not.  they're itchy terrible things, so i wouldn't want to leave it untreated if i were you!  pick up some monistat, or even try a home treatment like plain yogurt, and get some relief.

Recent studies have shown yogurt/acidophilus actually doesn't work. Definitely go with the OTC meds instead :-)
