I have had yeast infections every month since I had my son 6 years ago I can't seem to get any help from it. I have been to two obgyn drs. They said I have lichen sclerosis and that's why I have the infection every month but I think there has to be another answer . I get it every month 1 week before my period.

Could you please give a detailed information regarding your symptoms so as to come to a right diagnosis.
1. Do you have vaginal discharge? color? amount? is it fowl-smelling and itchy?
2. Do you have any other lesions on vulva? blisters? redness?
3. Did you get a vaginal swab lest before?
4. Have you done your pap and colposcopy before?

Waiting your your reply.

At time I have discharge, itchy red rash insider of opening of vagina. I have had several tests before come back as yeast. One time they thought I had bacterial infection gave me medicine for that and stop symptoms for couple months then back to same thing again. I have had cone biopsy and leap procedure done due to dysplasia about 5yrs ago I get yearly checkup no problems with that but just the monthly infections. I'm not diabetic either I've been tested for that also. I get yearly pap every year .

Thanks for the follow up reply.

You are suffering from resistant yeast infection. Yo have to take fluconazole oral tablets and clotrimazole vaginal pessaries for a prolonged period of time. There are many protocols for the treatment of resistant yeast infection.
Discuss the same with your Gynecologist.
Hope this helps,
