does it follow then that anything wrong with stuff down there has the potential to be sexually transmitted?

most probably since that's what we use when we have sex right? but if you practice safe sex, then it should not be a problem. you can also get yeast infection even if you have not had sex. a disturbance in the vaginal flora can make the yeast already present in that area multiply. people with low immune systems are susceptible.

so how do i know its not a change in flora like you said and the STD kind?

i dont think there's a way to tell. but if you are not sexually active then its the flora, if you are and you have not had sex with any other person other than your parnter then maybe you need to check your partner's equipment :)
