Doctor :   or a protozoa called trichomoniasiss or a bacterial, one
User :   even though it doesn't smell anymore and the discharge is gone?
Doctor :   i would advice you to get tested with a vaginal smear, which can diagnose it
Doctor :   so as the discharge is gone, and no more foul smell, i still would advice the same
User :   i've also been throwing up lately
User :   i don't know if that has anything to do with it
User :   that's why i took the pregnancy test...obviously i'm not pregnant
Doctor :   presence of internal infection can cause this issue
Doctor :   nausea, vomiting is not just symptoms of preganancy
Doctor :   it is also a feature of internal and GI infections
User :   my bf gets tested every three months though, he's been clean every time
User :   and i haven't been with anyone else
Doctor :   has he been checked for chlamydia ?

Doctor :   if not others, it could be candida, (white discharge) is specific
Doctor :   and this occurs mostly in women
Doctor :   and a dose of antifungal agents, (CANDIB-B) will help
User :   thank you. i will go talk to my doctor about this.
Doctor :   sure
