Brief Answer: See detail answer. Detailed Answer: Hi, Welcome to XXXXXXX Most common cause of this type of Discharge and symptoms could be due to STI, like Chlamydia, trichomoniasis or bacterial vaginosis, bacterial infection and Candidiasis. Most of the time, there is mixed vaginal Discharge. You should have been given immediate treatment. You may not see typical signs and symptoms of Yeast infection. I would be able to advise online only that atleast, you should avoid intercourse even with condom, take good hygiene measures, and go back to the Doctor or free clinic again and tell your problems. I am sure, there might be some misunderstanding, otherwise all clinics all over the world, on first visit of pregnant lady, do HIV test, and other STI's as a routine. You are symptomatic, you need to get proper attention, and medication. Your partner should also accompany you, as he may also need to be treated Feeling Hot in vagina, could be a sign of pregnancy, but as it is associated with itching, it is important to rule out bacterial Infections. If you fail to get proper treatment, You may buy Over the counter antifungal local cream, and a full course of Amoxycylcine antibiotics. Online, I can just advise you these safest medications. There are other specific medicines which should be given only after confirmation of diagnosis during pregnancy. Hope this information will help you. Best wishes. Dr H Hamdani
