Having vaginal infection, itching. Reason? - Online Doctor Chats
Hello Dr XXXXXXX
please proceed with your query
I need to chat with a Gynae for my wife
Could you please guide me
I'm sorry we do not have gynecologists for chat
Ok. How do you suggest I should go ahead then?
I'm sure I can help you, if you wish you can continue the chat with me
Ok. Doctor my wife seems to be having a vaginal infection
Its been two weeks that she has an itching in that region
Since how long?
maybe 2-3 weeks
Does she also have any other problems, like a white discharge?
As a matter of fact, yes
Could you describe the discharge, is it like curdy?
Its not curdy...She says its not too much..very less discharge which is a little sticky
I feel it could be a fungal infection
Ok..She is saying she intensely washed her region during her last periods..
You will need to get baseline investigations done after which a treatment plan can be advised
could that be a trigger for this problem?
How old is she? and is by any chance pregnant?
Not yet pregnant
is she a diabetic?
not at all
but under control
okay, What you need to do is, get her to your local gyneacologist
She needs a proper physical exam
and some basic tests like
Urine routine, complete blood counts
I got her urine routine done on XXXXXXX 31st
and a vaginal swab KOH mount
What is a vaginal swab test?
You can also get a vaginal swab culture and sensitivity
Vaginal swab is a simple test, where a small cotton swab is introduced into the vagina so that the discharge gets stuck to it
Doctor, a friend of hers advised CMC table to be inserted in the region
and this wet swab is then applied onto a slide and examined under microscope to identify the type of micro-organism causing the problem
CMC vaginal tablets
Should she use them?
You should consult a doctor in person before you decide on any medicines
One more question she had
Is there anything else you want to discuss?
How should she clean the region during her periods?
Can she use normal soap?
No special precaution is needed,
is there any specific step she should take to maintain good hygeine?
she can clean with normal tap water or warm water and a normal soap
No special precaution means, she can apply soap in that region during her periods?
Doctor one more thing
Yes please go ahead
Since we are planning for our family, can we have normal intercourse during this time (infection)? or should we avoid?
It is best to avoid intercourse during any infection
Ok. I am embarrassed to ask you this but can she stimulate herself sexually during this time?
Yes she can
There is no problem with that
Ok. Thanks doctor..Now I have a question of my own..
We have been planning to start a family for a couple of months now
I am facing this issue that I am unable to discharge inside..
But when outside, I am easily able to do so.
Is there a problem with me that I need to consult a doctor?
if you don't mind could you please give me two minutes?
I am back
By your description I do not feel you have any problem
You might be having what is called as performance anxiety
It is a very common condition
When I am unable to discharge inside, I lose the erection as well which really frustrates me
It is a common thing to loose the erection while ejaculating
Do not worry about that
What do you suggest I should do then?
First thing, you should stop worrying about the results
Then you should indulge in forepay
I mean foreplay
And you should have sexual intercourse without any inhibitions or expectations from yourself
You need to be relaxed and have sexual intercourse to just enjoy
I'll all the steps going forward
I really appreciate ir
Is there anything else?
No doctor. Thats all.
