Question: Hi there, I’ve had white/yellowish dishcharge for a couple of days now. Itching, but no odour. I saw my Gynae today and he said it could be a yeast infection. He’s taken a vagibal swab too and the results will be out in a couple of days. He inserted a pessary and gave my some anti fungal meds. It itching has reduced but my discharged has turned from white ( from the dissolved pessary) to yellow/green. Is this normal? This problem has recurred within 3 weeks from the last bout. The last time I was given antibiotics because the vagibal swab came back positive for a Strep B infection. Pleas help! At my wits end. Thanks.

Brief Answer:
STD panel should be done.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
As you are having recurrent vaginal infection, it is fungal as well as bacterial infection.
But as your discharge changes in color,you should get your STD panel as well to rule out STD infection.
You should continue with same treatment.
Keep the area dry and clean.
Follow healthy and nutritious diet.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.

Thanks for your prompt reply. I’ve done STD tests and tests have returned negative. Is it normal for discharge to turn yellow after taking vaginal pessary? Is there a reason I keep getting this recurrent bouts of infection and in such a close span of time? Is the treatment of anti fungals and antibiotics correct? Should I be looking an alternative treatments? Thanks.

Brief Answer:
Yes,treatment is correct.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
You are always welcome.
If discharge is not associated with any foul smell and itching, change in Color maybe there after pessary and considered normal.
You have to check blood sugar levels and are you taking any contraceptive pills?
Yes,you are taking right treatment.
As such you have to take lots of curd in your diet and probiotics and avoid excessive cleaning of that area.
Hope found useful.
Good luck.

Hi, I’ve gotten my results back from the doctor and it’s a Strep B and Yeast infection. He’s given me an antibiotic injection and more anti-fungal meds. I have a light brown discharge and it’s a little itchy. Is this normal? Is it just the infection clearing up? Thanks again.

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
