What causes recurrent vaginal yeast infections evn after taking intraconazole? Not sexually active. Urine test showed glucose-absent. Age 21

Yeast: Have you formally been diagnosed with the infection each time? Sometimes itraconazole might not be helpful if used repeatedly. Make sure you are gently cleaning with unscented products and rinse well. Pat dry or use hair dryer on cool. Try to not bathe (shower instead) and get out of wet/sweaty clothing ASAP. See your doctor as well to help confirm and perhaps suggest another treatment. ...Read more

I have group b strep positive ladies during pregnancy?

I have group b strep positive ladies during pregnancy?

Discuss with OB: I would expect the OB to be extra vigilant. Since GBS can be transient and is present in 1/3 of women at any time, most screening occurs later in pregnancy or at the beginning of premature labor. IV antibiotics during labor is a standard treatment as oral meds have not been shown to effect outcome. ...Read more

More testing: Absence of menstrual cycles is most commonly due to extremes of weight (thin/heavy), thyroid, pituitary, or (rarely) ovarian failure. Has your doctor checked your TSH and prolactin levels? Are you at a normal weight? If worried about ovarian failure, need fsh and Estradiol checked as well. Good luck! ...Read more

28 yr f. 8 + pregnant test. Period 1.5 weeks late. Ov cancer causes false positives? Worried.Do women still get their monthly periods with ovarian cancer?

Embryonal cell carcinomas, ovarian choriocarcinomas, mixed germ cell tumors, and some dysgerminomas are the only ovarian cancers that produce HCG (positive pregnancy test). All of these types of tumors comprise less than 5% of all ovarian cancers. Have your local ob/gyn get an ultrasound of your pelvis. ...Read more
