Vaginal itching: You may have gotten secondary yeast infection, may not have cured the Chlamydia, may have had more than a single infection and only treated one, may have gotten something new since being diagnosed with Chlamydia.

Vaginal discharge: It is likely the antibiotics altered the flora of your vagina and from your description this sounds like a yeast infection. See your doctor for confirmation if you can, otherwise you can buy a diflucan (fluconazole) tablet at the pharmacy which should help. ...Read more

My vagina is itchy and irritated. I was massaging it due to the itchiness and it began to bleed. What do I do? I was just treated for chlamydia earlier this week. I am also on the birth control, Depo-Provera shot. Could this be any factors as well?

It : It sounds like you may have developed a yeast infection. This commonly occurs after taking antibiotics. When a yeast infection is present the vaginal tissue is inflammed and if rubbed can bleed easily. Try an over the counter yeast infection cream and insert it into vagina as directed. You can also rub some of the cream on the outside inflammed area. If this treatment fails schedule a visit with your doctor. Take care. ...Read more
