I'm on tri previfem and took plan b 3 weeks ago. I have a yeast infection w/blood. Is the blood from plan b or is it a sign of implantation? Nervous

I'm on tri previfem and took plan b 3 weeks ago. I have a yeast infection w/blood. Is the blood from plan b or is it a sign of implantation? Nervous

Confusing: If you are already on birth control pills then there is no need to take Plan B as you were already protected. Implantation bleeding only occurs if you are pregnant which is not likely since you are on birth control. Yeast does not usually cause blood. I suspect you just triggered some bleeding from adding Plan B on top of your birth control. ...Read more

Pregnant?: From what you describe pregnancy is very unlikely. The best thing to do is after you have missed a period get a home pregnancy test kit from your friendly pharmacist and check a first morning voided urine. If you do not miss a period do not bother. Get your yeast infection treated and if your discharge remains bloody see your GYN. ...Read more

Be examined: Based on your description it may be something your perineum, or bottom area is coming in contact with. Be checked to make sure it is not something else. I don't believe it is related to Plan B. Benadryl if no allergies and cold packs may be helpful. Bathing in Aveeno may also help. ...Read more

My boyfriend is a frequent drinker of dark liquor, can this cause me to get a yeast infection from him?

My boyfriend is a frequent drinker of dark liquor, can this cause me to get a yeast infection from him?

No: Yeast infections usually are not caught from sex partners. Yeast is normal in the vagina, rectum, and on genital skin, and a new yeast infection means yeasts already present have grown to greater number, causing symptoms. Even if some infections were transmitted sexually, drinking "dark liquor" or anything else wouldn't make any difference. See your doctor if you think you have a yeast infection. ...Read more
