Question: vital flora and essential detox supplements good for my vagina yeast infection? It has cleared up especially the smell is gone but I am wondering should I continue using some kind of supplements everyday without me paying so much?

Brief Answer: get high vaginal vaginal swab and follow treatment Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX, Welcome to health care magic. The vital flora and essential detox for vaginal infection remain largely unproven therapies. If you had a smelly discharge then it is possible that rather than having candida you may be suffering from an infection with trichomoniasis which is a unicellular organism often infecting reproductive age group females. I would like to advise you to get examined by a local gynecologist and get a high vaginal swab. The vaginal secretions should be tested fo Gram stain and fungal stain and culture and sensitivity testing and saline drop preparation should be examined under microscope for presence of trichomoniasis. This problem can be treated and is curable in allopathy to the fullest extent usually the treatment takes 3 to 7 days. I hope the advice will be helpful for you.

I ve recently been experiencing abdominal boosting/cramping not period related paired w/ a foul vaginal/ urine smell, there is no itching or burning or odd discharge . In the past I ve had persistent bacterial/ yeast infectios but these symptoms seem different. My husband has also recenty been experiencing tenderness/redness on his penis lasting over a week and this is worrisome. About a month ago we participated in a MFF threesome and we are concerned we may have caught an STD? HELP

Hi I have had a rather foul smelling vaginal discharge now for the past week and as a nurse I have smelt this kind of thing before in a wound on the skin called pseudomonus! I note that it started after taking some amoxycillin tablets for an upper respiratory infection! Which antibiotic can i take for this. It definitely is not a thrush infection. I am now pre menopausal and don t get my periods regularly anymore.

I ve never been to a gynecologist because my mom isn t open AT ALL, with these kind of things. I m 17 years old and I ve never had any sexual relations of any kind. I ve masturbated but I m very careful with it and I m very clean about it and always wash my hands before and after. Even when I do, I dont insert fingers because i find it too small. My question is: Is it normal for me to have a bad smell down there? I asked a trusted adult about it once, and they said that it might be because of the pubic hair collecting bacteria and it might help to get rid of it. so i did, but then i started getting ingrown hairs down there so i stopped. but the smell didnt improve at all and the discharge is cloudy and white and its ALWAYS there. I m worried that there might be something wrong with me
