Brief Answer: Menopausal atrophic vaginnitis,left labia bleeding Detailed Answer: Hi, You are saying to be a diabetic. Commonly, diabetes is associated with vaginitis, especially with itching. Such itching (perhaps in left labia) could lead to bleeding. I'd suggest to consult a gynecologist (especially when you have itching) to - perform physical examination (check for any abnormal bumps or lumps or local lesions). - do trans-vaginal ultrasound - do PAP testing and other vaginal swab testing. Meanwhile, - keep good hygiene of your genitalia; - can use intimate washing cream or gel containing normal lactobacilli of the vaginal flora. Your gynecologist would give additional treatment according to the testing results. Hope it answered to your concern! If you have further concerns, do not hesitate to contact me again! Dr.Bardha

Hi, I am a 61 year old who recently saw my GYN, while there I told her I get a lot of yeast infections, I think because I am cortisone dependant, and antibiotics tend to give me yeast infections as well. I always was noticing an odor...she suggested a probiotic. I have been using a brand called Healthy Belly because it has Lactobacillus Acidophilus in it and states that inhibits the growth of candida. Well my health food store stopped selling it and recommended Florastor.....will this help with odor and yeast infections? Is there much of a difference
