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)

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.
