hello and thank you for asking HCM,

I understand your concern and it seems like you are again having vaginal yeast infection. A yeast infection causes itching or soreness in the vagina and sometimes causes pain or burning when you urinate or have sex. Some women also have a thick, clumpy, white discharge that has no odor and looks a little like cottage cheese.
You can use an antifungal cream, or a suppository that you put into your vagina, or antifungal tablets that you swallow. You can buy them without prescription. If you use a cream or suppository to treat the infection, don't depend on a condom or diaphragm for birth control. The oil in some medicines weakens latex, the material often used to make these devices.

your symptoms should disappear using this medication in a couple of days. If not visit your gynecologist as soon as possible.

I hope this answer was helpful to you.
