Brief Answer:
Can be mild fungal infection or dryness.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
I have seen all the attached reports. The reports are almost normal and no active treatment is needed. The itching in the vaginal area can be related to a vaginal fungal infection or dryness. If there is no whitish discharge then you need not worry.
The itching can be controlled with topical ointment like Betnovate N applied twice a day. In case the itching is persistent then do consult your gynecologist for an examination to rule out any infection and get oral anti fungals prescribed.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Brief Answer:
You need oral antibiotics also.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
It seems that you have a bacterial vaginosis (BV). It is mostly caused by an anaerobic organism, G.vaginalis. It can be associated with other vaginal infection like yeast infection etc.

Metronidazole or same categorical drug (like Tinidazole/ secnidazole) is the treatment of choice to cure BV. It can be taken as 2 gm single dose. In mixed vaginal infection, AFS kit (combination of Azithromycin, Fluconazole & Secnidazole) is quite effective. Local application of 2% clindamycin gel is also helpful. In such cases, your sexual partner also needs complete course of treatment.

Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Regards.

Thanks doctor,

so in short , If I only start taking Metronidazole or same categorical drug (like Tinidazole/ secnidazole) 2 gm single dose daily, if yes please confirm for how many days I should take it and what is the timing of dose.

Also to mention here few things-
we are planning for conceive from this month hence not using any protection
I am taking daily Folivite active tablet
what kind of precaution or treatment is needed for my husband as he is not having any issues.

Thanks,

doctor

Brief Answer:
Better to get the proper medicines prescribed after examination.

Detailed Answer:
Metronidazole or secnidazole 2 gm high dose is taken only once at bedtime for one day. You will also need other anti fungal agents like Fluconazole and azithromycin for proper treatment.
It is better to consult a gynecologist physically instead of taking self medication. Your husband's treatment can be discussed only after a detailed evaluation.
