Probably yeast.: Vaginal yeast infections present with vaginal itching and white discharge, without abdominal pain or fever.

It depends: If you're trying to get pregnant, i.e. Having a lot of sex, this could be a yeast infection (cottage cheese, itchy discharge), could be bacterial vaginosis (a common infection which is milky, itchy and smells like fish) or ovulation (thick clear discharge). Do a urine pregnancy test to see if you're pregnant or not. If not, and the discharge bothers you, see your doctor.

Do not think so : I am not aware of any connection between celiac disease, which primarily involves gluten intolerance and causes diarrhea, and sciatica. Sciatica is usually caused by edema around this nerve or pinching of the nerve.

Not necessarily: Family history - mother's and father's, and sibling's - can suggest a predilection for ear infections, but it is only a tendency, not definite. If there is a family history, monitor closely.
A 21-year-old member asked:

I'm a man, should I get human papilloma virus vaccine to avoid genital warts and cancer?

Yes: The vaccine has been approved by the fda for ages 9-26 in men. The biggest advantage of the vaccine is to reduce the spread of the virus to women, which can be aided by reducing the number of men with the virus. Male genital cancer is much rarer than female cervical cancer, so the major benefit is preventing some types of warts an spread to women.

Return to your Docto: If pain is not better after few seats of antibiotics, you either have the wrong antibiotics or something else is causing the pain, so you better return to be checked.
