Hello dear,

I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
The symptoms can be due to few reasons but before giving my opinion I want to ask a few questions from you.
Are you having any type of vaginal discharge with smell?
Any other associated symptoms?
Taking any medication and suffering from any disease?
Are you having burning and frequency in urination?
Was it unprotected sex?
