Do I have a yeast infection?

I think I have a yeast infection because I left a tampon in for 11 hours and after that my vagina was very sore and inchy, but I had sex on 1-4 and my mom doesn't know about it and I can't tell her what could be the possible cause for this and why?

You may have a yeast infection, you may not but you should go to the doctor for this.

Leaving in a tampon for too long can cause Toxic Shock Syndrome.

Yes it's rare, but things do happen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxic_shock_syndrome

You should be at an appropriate age where you can go to the OBGyn on your own. Also yeast infections are not only caused from sex, so do not be embarassed about having one.

You can get a yeast infection from leaving a tampon in too long.
