Hi I was hoping you could give me some info. I was tested for a Yeast Infection and it came back with a positive. I m still having no relief from the symptoms, itching of the labias, redness, and tenderness during sexual intercourse. My urine even burned for the first time today after sex. What is wrong with me ?

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 a problem vaginally. I told my doctor that I constantly feel like I have a yeast infection and I have a horrible odor. She wouldn’t do anything about it! My last trip to see her, she got mad, rolled her eyes and walked out of the room. Only to return and hand me a tube like thing with a long q-tip looking item in it! She told me to swan myself and bring it back and they would analyze it! Needless to say I never went back! Now I have no doctor and I still have the awful smell

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.
