Frequent yeast infections, overweight. Husband with multiple partners. What could the cause be?

I have treated (what I think, but never officially diagnosed) several yeast infections OTC and these past few months, it has come back more frequently. I am married, but my husband cheats with his ex on a regular basis - but I am also overweight (more prone to yeast inf.) so without getting an exam and culture, I don t know what it could be. I ve also noticed along with it frequent, clear discharge (much more than normal) and sometimes foul odor. So u think it could be an STD or an agressive, advanced yeast infection?

Thanks for your query on health care magic.

Your symptoms of foul-smelling vaginal discharge indicates vaginal infection.
Cause could be candida(yeast), bacterial vaginosis or trichomonas.
All these are sexually transmitted diseases.
I recommend you to:
1. Get a swab test for diagnosis.
2. Get a blood sugar levels done.
3. Practice safe sex. Its better to use barrier contraceptives.
4. maintain personal hygiene.

Treatment depends on the diagnosis.
Please consult your Gynecologist for prescription of medicines depending on diagnosis.
Hope this helps,
Dr Nilofer
