Doctor :   k
User :   no infections anywhere else
Doctor :   apart from that u don't have any
Doctor :   k
Doctor :   u had any such problems before?
User :   no
Doctor :   k thats all my questions
Doctor :   now the problem is bacterial vaginitis or fungal
User :   =S
Doctor :   but in your case i probably think this is a case of bacterial
Doctor :   as there are no other signs of fungal infection
Doctor :   the vagina contains normal bacteria
Doctor :   when the other bacteria overgrow or if it is spread from urinary tract the infection results
Doctor :   got my point?
Doctor :   are you there?
User :   yes
User :   and what do i need to do?
Doctor :   ya just listen to me
User :   im scared of the ginecologist
Doctor :   if you have any doubts u can stop me
Doctor :   inbetween
User :   ok
Doctor :   i will follow up your case till you are normal
Doctor :   no need to panic
Doctor :   u need not go to gynaecologist also
User :   ok
Doctor :   when these bacteria overgrow they upset the normal balance
Doctor :   so due to this organisms the itching and pain results
User :   ok

Doctor :   so if you go to gynaecologist
Doctor :   they examine but mostly decide on the history that you give
Doctor :   that is the problems which you tell
Doctor :   and they take a smear of vaginal discharge to determine whether it is fungal or bacterial or other cause
Doctor :   got my point
User :   yes
Doctor :   so i likely think your case is bacterial vaginitis
User :   ok

Doctor :   for this i will provide you with some tips
User :   ok
Doctor :   kindly make a note of it with pen and paper
Doctor :   as u may forget
