The : The best decision you have made thus far is the visit you have scheduled with the gynecologist. You simply may have a bacterial vaginosis (bv) as opposed to yeast, which is why the symptoms have not resolved. Also an std check needs to be done to rule out gonorrhea or chlamydia. Relax and try not to worry. Hopefully you will have an answer and treatment very soon. Best of luck.
