Hi, I m 7 months pregnant and found out about a month ago that I had an yeast infection. I got treated with canestan vaginal tablets and antibiotics and I also treated my partner, after I finish the treatment we decided to have sex but there was a unusual burning turning and after sex. Then we notice that the yeast infection came back so I treated myself again with the canestan vaginal cream this time along with the antibiotics again but it didn t seems to be getting any better. And it s going on 3 weeks now. Can you please tell me how to get rid of the yeast infection without harming the baby.

I have a couple questions regarding vaginal yeast infections. I recently saw my Gynecologist for my yearly check-up. I was tested for a yeast infection and tested positive and didn t know I had one. I didn t have any itching or soreness, I had a little discharge and an unusual odor. I thought I had a bacterial infection, like I had last year when I saw her. It seems like I have problems keeping a balance. I took a Diflucan pill, but how do I keep it from coming back. If I eat a serving of yogurt every day, will that help?

I have had horrible pains inserting a tampon. It also happens sometimes during sex. It doesn't happen every time, but it seems to be getting worse over the years. what could this be?

I am 29, 5'4", 123 lbs. I have had 3 major surgeries. First was for lazy eye when I was 2, then corrective jaw surgery at 15 or 16. Then at 23 I had an emergency c-section in childbirth. Throughout my adolescence, I had unexplained headaches and was prescribed random medications for them that I don't remember helping. I was diagnosed with gastreonitis as a young teenager and I've had problems with this my entire life. I was told I had acute scoliosis as a child. I used to get UTI's all the time. I've had vaginitis a few times. I have recently discovered that I have an ingroinal hernia. I've always bulged a little in that area every once in a while as far back as I can remember, but after childbirth it kept getting bigger and bigger and now is uncomfortable and is out most of the time unless I'm laying down.

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 am visiting my family in Iowa and I won t be home in Texas until June 5th. I went to urgent care for what turned out to be vaginitis not yeast, not bacteria. I am 65 and I haven t had any problems like this in 16 years. From my a urine sample the physician s assistant said the lab saw a little blood, a little sugar, and a lot of white blood cells. I take Methylphenidate 20 mg. and Citalopram 20 mg. I also take Crestor 10 mg. Do any of these meds effect the kidneys? I drank a glass of wine last Thursday. But I don t mix alcohol with these meds.
