Infection (Definition)

Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more

Yeast is possible: Genital itching is the most common symptom of vaginal yeast, and your question suggests you're probably taking an antibiotic which can trigger yeast infections. There are several over-the-counter yeast medications you could try; look for a product with active ingredient ending in "azole". But first check with the doctor who prescribed the antibiotic; she may want to see you in person. Good luck! ...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 (diphenhydramine) if no allergies and cold packs may be helpful. Bathing in Aveeno may also help. ...Read more

I'm on tri-previfem. I still bought plan b after unprotected sex then we used a condom the next day I have a yeast infection with blood now. Am I preg?

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

On Nuva Ring, took Plan B a week and 3 days ago & period is 1 day late. Currently have yeast infection, cramps and yellow discharge, what is happening?

Doctor can evaluate: Plan B can alter the menstrual bleeding for the cycle in which Plan B was taken, and sometimes the next cycle too. One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Plan B works most of the time, but not all the time. A primary care or Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate to see why the other vaginal symptoms are happening, and check for infections. ...Read more

I'm on tri previfem (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) 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
