Recurring vaginal discharge with itching. History of terminated ectopic pregnancy and miscarriage. Need permanent cure

I have a recurring discharge which is itchy and painful, when I visit the doctor, they treat me for PID, why then is it recurring if it is treatable? I could start with the genesis of my problems, I had one ectopic pregnenancy and which was terminated. After around 5 months, I got a miscarriage which when I was going for a wash, my blood could not clot. I spent more than 10 hours beng reinstated. After this incidence, I got a pain on my lower left abdomen which after visiting the doctor was said to be PID. This comes with a discharge which is both painful and itchy. It also burns my partner to a bad extent. It keeps recurring and there is no time it has disappeared completely. This week again I visited the doctor and again some test were done and VDM kit was prescibed. What is this problem and what is its cause? Please reply on YYYY@YYYY

Thanks for writing to us.

According to your information, you are mostly suffering from PID with vaginal yeast infection (fungal). Other causes are STD, sweating with tight underwear, allergic reaction to bath products etc.

Diagnostic laparoscopy may be needed to confirm PID. Do complete blood count, vaginal swab test, routine urine examination and STD profile to pinpoint the diagnosis.

Treatment: 1) You may require one course of oral antibiotic and Vaginal Suppository or Capsule (combined Clindamycin, Tinidazole & Clotrimazole) like CLINGEN FORTE at bed time for 7 days. Your partner also needs some treatment. Kindly, procure complete prescription from your local doctor.

2) Wear loose fitting pants and avoid tight fitting jeans, pants, g-strings.

3) Bathing in bicarbonate of soda - Bathe your vulva once or twice a day for 5-10 minutes in a basin or bath.

4) Don’t use perfumed soaps and bath products. Use 100% cotton sanitary pads and tampons.

5) Lean forward when passing urine - this helps to avoid burning or itching and always wipe or pat from front to back.

6) Maintain genital hygiene properly. Wear clean and cotton underwear. Keep the area always dry.

Hope, it helps for you. Take care and Be well.
