Question: Hi, before around 6 months ago i had abnormal discharge and my obgyn thought it was yeast and we kept treating it for 2 or 3 months without any results till she did some tests and found out it was mycoplasma and it was treated later on i got a yeast infection because of antibiotics and around a month ago i got the mycoplasma again and treated it at once and this when i found out how i was getting it.. Its been a hectic non stop medication 6 or 7 months of my life and my question is can this change the way my regular discharge like type should i say.. It used to always be clear now its more white-ish or clear with flaky soft white stuff which usually become worse before my period where i can see it stuck in the inner lips of my vagina ? O checked with an obgyn a couple of days ago she said it was normal but i just dont like the white-ish discharge or the whitw stuff that get stuck on my inner lips and the frequency of getting the discharge is more before my period and i use daily pads and i noticed the discharge having a yellow color the last couple of days so id like some advice on what is going on please? (Note: i have a bf and im only sexually active with him)

Brief Answer:
Discharge

Detailed Answer:
Hi

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply

1. You seem to have developed vaginal infection.

2. Its a common problem and not to worry.

3. Please see another gynecologist and ask for per speculum examination.

4. The discharge can be seen and this needs to be sent for culture and sensitivity test.

5. This test gives the information regarding which organism responsible for the discharge and you can accordingly take medicines.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Regards

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?

Hello Dr, I am having a serious issue about being pregnant or having ovarian cancer. When I am ovulating, I always have pain on my right side. But lately I have been having pain on my left side and cannot sleep on my belly. I had my period on May 21, my DH and I got busy around my ovulation between May 31 and June 2. AF came back on the 14 very light for 2 days (not tampons or no pad but just wiping) and then light for 2 more days. I started with frequent urination very early (don't remember exactly when it started), had some cramps few days later, my boost are swollen (can see my veins now), having some side pains, pain in my uterus (hurt same spot as when I had my laparoscopy for fibroid and endometriosis) bloating, pelvic pain, back pain, tingling near belly button, tummy is hard, nausea, took several HPT test and all negative. Should I be concerned about ovarian cancer. Thank you kindly for your answer.

Hi I want to know if I have herpes
I have been fingered by 3 guys, all whom i presume did not have herpes (but I can't be sure). I am currently with my boyfriend, and he has had no previous sexual partners. We have had genital to genital contact and both have no symptoms of herpes and it has been 8 months since I was fingered by somebody other than my boyfriend. I get occassional itching in my pubic area, having had a yeast infection before, in other instances where i have noticed itching i have applied a hydrozole cream and it has gone away with a day or 2.

I ve recently been experiencing abdominal boosting/cramping not period related paired w/ a foul vaginal/ urine smell, there is no itching or burning or odd discharge . In the past I ve had persistent bacterial/ yeast infectios but these symptoms seem different. My husband has also recenty been experiencing tenderness/redness on his penis lasting over a week and this is worrisome. About a month ago we participated in a MFF threesome and we are concerned we may have caught an STD? HELP
