Vaginal itching, white discharge, burning sensation, irregular periods, pregnancy test negative. Worried

Hi doctor. . Am single and I've been suffering from vaginal itching for days.. and I've noticed discharges are quite increasing like crimson white but not foul. My vagina has been dry... I can't help scratching. It burns when I pee but I don't have fever neither pain on my flanks. Am bloated. Am sexually active but my bf is away for a week now. I've got irregular period. My last period was on 5 march 2013. I did home pregnancy test on 4 april 2013 but it was negative. My period still didn't come. Would I be pregnant? What can I do for my vaginal itching cos it disturbs me a lot?

Based from the information it seems you have an sexually transmitted disease mostly "FUNGAL INFECTION" .

Their are various types of sexually transmitted disease and all have some commons stuff while some things are different,

1) If discharge is " grayish white or yellow and has fishy smell" its mostly bacterial vaginosis
2) If discharge with pain during intercourse probably gonorrhea
3) If discharge is yellow-green, itchy, frothy, foul-smelling probably trichomoniasis
4) If discharge is white curd like its probably candidasis / fungal infection,
5) If pain/ burning while urination its Urinary tract infection.

So its can't be determined from your description alone as too many possibilities as listed above,


Consult physician whom you are comfortable talking to (mostly a female physician I guess?)
Here is mostly what they will do.
1) do an visual inspection of your vaginal area
2) collect some sample for laboratory test
3) may be some blood test if they have suspicion of systemic infection
4) may ask for testing for "HIV" (Mostly depends upon where you are as its recommended in USA to ask patient for that test - PLEASE DO NOT BE SCARED - ITS JUST A LEGAL FORMALITY IT DOES NOT MEANS YOU HAS AIDS/ HIV and should not be a reason not to take medical attention for present problems, if You wish you can deny the HIV test.)

lastly they will treat it will some ANTIBIOTICS/ANTIFUNGAL

Hope it helps
