See your doctor: A jelly like discharge is often semen. Semen turns into a thick gel when ejaculated into the vagina, this keeps it from all falling out. The semen then thins about 1 day later and exits the vagina, it often seems like a jelly. However, without seeing you we can't rule out infection. You should see your doctor for an exam and diagnosis. Good luck.

How should I apply clotrimazole vaginal cream into my vagina?

Vaginal applicator: Generally medications placed vaginally (e.g. Anti-fungals, Premarin (conjugated estrogens) cream...) come with a 'vaginal applicator'. The applicator twists on to the tube of medicine and with a slight squeeze the applicator fills up. The applicator is then placed in the vagina after which the plunger on the applicator is pushed- expelling the medication into the vagina. Voila!

Can clindamycin vaginal cream and flagyl orally taken, be used together for bv and pid. Should I take diflucan as precaution to yeast side effect?

Anti-fungal: I recommend that all of my female patients when taken any antibiotic be given a prescription for Diflucan. Antibiotics which killed a normal flora both in the mouth and in the vaginal region may predispose patients to developing yeast infections. I recommend that you always asks for generic Diflucan and have this on hand in case it is needed.
