Yeast infection?: Probably you have a vaginal yeast (candida) infection, also called thrush. Yeast is normal in the vagina, but antibiotic treatment can suppress bacteria so that yeasts overgrow, with itching and irritation. It's easily treated, usually with an "azole" vaginal medication (miconazole, etc), or a single dose of fluconazole by mouth. Contact your doctor for advice about the best treatment for you. ...Read more

Dr says I have a strep b infection in my vagina. Antibiotics for a week. Do I have to worry about husband getting it or giving it back to me? Not preg

No worries: Group B streptococcus (GBS) is normal in the vagina, and not a likely cause of whatever symptoms you have. The main importance of vaginal GBS is that it can cause serious infections in newborns if exposed during delivery. Testing of women for GBS usually isn't done except in pregnant women. Your husband could be colonized with it, but it really shouldn't make any difference. Discuss w/ doctor. ...Read more
