I was just diagnosed as having a vaginal infection caused by e. Coli. I think i've had it for a year and a half. Could I have PID now?

I am having white vaginal infection, I am not able to understand why it happened. Last to last month a treatment of this through Cansoft-CL medicine.

Get evaluated: Every discharge is not a vaginal infection. A woman may have a discharge that is white in color and it be completely normal. Discharge that is associated with symptoms like: burning, itching, irritation, pain or ulcers are more likely to be a vaginal infection. If you were given a treatment for a suspected vaginal infection yet have not had any relief, then I would suggest you be seen by a GYN. ...Read more
