Spotted for 2 days & started my new birth control same day. Spotted 4 days after for only 1 day. Have itching & discharge. Used monisistat. Is this normal?

Spotting is normal: After starting a new hormonal birth control method. But the itching and discharge sound more like a yeast infection. The change in your hormones around your period can cause a yeast infection. This can be treated with over the counter vaginal yeast creams. But if you don't improve, you should get tested for other infections. ...Read more

Got implanon birth control started noticing brown discharge, constant itching, and a bad odor.?

More than 1 problem: The brown discharge with Implanon is exceedingly common and may last a few days, a few weeks, or a few months. Be patient, but if it is intolerable it is treatable. The itching would most likely be yeast and could be caused by the constant bleeding. The odor could be BV, also due to the constant blood in the vagina.

I've been itching really bad and it is so irritating, I can't sleep and I keep on trying to urinate. I've been taking birth control for a month now.

Unclear: Did the itching start soon after you starting taking BCP? If so, the pill might have something to do with your symptoms and you may need to find an alternate. If not, you need to give us more information (Your age, duration of symptoms, other medical conditions such as diabetes etc). See an allergist if problem persists since sleep disruption leads to poor health. ...Read more

1 week ago I had a skin tag removed from the inside of my vagina. I have some stitches but 2 days ago started itching. Some burning only with contact.

1 week ago I had a skin tag removed from the inside of my vagina. I have some stitches but 2 days ago started itching. Some burning only with contact.

Signs of healing: Itching is commen for having stitches. You are healing. Are the stitches the dissolvable ones, they are more prong to itching. It is still fresh from the skin tag removal so "burning" with contact is not unusually either. Aquaphor ointment generously on the area.
And sensible hygene practice. Nothing too aggressive just keep clean and dry. ...Read more
