Question: i am having irregular bleeding and yellow discharge. Don't think it's Candidiasis or trichomoniasis, I think it's a simple yeast infection, but I've never had one so I need a second opinion

Brief Answer:
You need to consult gynecologist.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to healthcare magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns.


Is the discharge foul smelling? Do you have itching too. It does not seem to be yeast infection. It could be bacterial infection. If you are sexually active, trichomoniasis and gonorrhoea need to be considered. Bacterial vaginosis too sometimes gives yellow discharge.

Is this irregular bleeding in addition to your regular mensus. If so it could be due to infection. You may be having cervical erosion or polyp which can cause such bleeding.
You need to consult gynecologist for internal examination and vaginal swab for culture and sensitivity so that you receive appropriate treatment. If your pap smear is due, you need to get that one too.

I hope this is helpful.
If you have further concerns, I will be happy to answer.
Best wishes,
Dr Rama

Hi, I m an American living in the West Bank and have suffered from vaginosis (e. coli) for the past several months and severe stomach pain for the past six weeks. I don t know if they are related, but I m getting nervous about long-term effects. No doctor here seems to be able to cure it! For the vaginosis, I have taken metronidazole, clindomycin, nutrafuvantoin, and one other antibiotic, which have temporarily helped but not cured the vaginosis. Have also gone for weeks at a time of celibacy with my partner but he has not been treated and I m not sure what he needs to do to get treated. Meanwhile for the stomach pain I tested negative for parasites and H. Pylori, but here in the West Bank they are unable to do a general test for bacteria and have to test one by one, and this is expensive and time consuming. Finally, I have Crohn s Disease but two CBCs from different labs show normal indicators other than slight anemia, which is normal for me. I m not sure what to do. I m considering taking amoxicillin or perhaps nifuroxazide, which cured my case of diarrhea last year (but I don t have diarrhea now -- just horrible painful gas). If you can help in any way I would be extremely grateful.

I missed the first 4 pills of my new pack waiting for them in the mail. Finally starting the pack on thursday.i have now been on the BC for 2 weeks. Since then I have had tender nipples and breast, little twinges and crampy feelings in lower abdomin. I have egg white film like discharge that has no odor. Other than early pregnancy, could I have a hormonal imbalance from missing those 4 pills or could it be bacterial vaginosis or what do u think most likely. I have taken several pregnancy tests but all have been negative I think it is too early. Help!!!

I m 15 and I have been having a weird odour coming from my vagina and some discharge, it is not painful and it does not burn when I urinate. It is not a yeast infection nor is it a water infection so I have come to the conclusion that it must be Bacterial Vaginosis. I am also not sexually active. I have taken medication that was prescribed by my doctor but it never worked so I decided to do some research. I found that inserting plain yogurt into your vagina and eating yogurt regularly helped cure it. Is this true?

i am an 18 yr old female that is type 1 diabetic. I have had symptoms that mimic a bladder infection but have been told that I do not have one. However, it feels like I have to go the bathroom and it hurts sometimes after Im done peeing. Also, have discharge and a fishy odor and I had bacterial vaginosis and treated it twice now everytime I get my period my syptoms come back also. What could this be? I am very worried and need to know what your advice is. I also am not at home near a doctor...I am at my mom's on vacation out of Canada where Im from. I have travel insurance if you think I should go to emergency to find out what this is. Thanks
