I'm pretty sure I've had a yeast infection for about a month, I've been using vagisil but it isn't helping and I can't see a doctor because I'm away from home. My vagina is itchy has discharge and occasionally burns. Help!

Time to think outsid: If topical antifungal treatments haven't worked in 1 month, then consider the possibility that the "yeast infection" isn't from yeast. Assuming that you are not pregnant (Vagisil is not to be used if you are) then recurrent yeast infection symptoms could point to STDs, bacterial infection (not treated by antiFUNGALS), or resistant yeast (yes, possible). Can you discuss with Gyn on HealthTap Prime? ...Read more

Is it a yeast infection? I had sex with my boyfriend this weekend and on sunday and today my vagina has been very itchy and had some yellow discharge, but did not have a noticable smell.

If: If this is the first time you are having these symptoms then an exam by your doctor is in order. If you are dealing with yeast, then for the future you will be sure of the signs and symptoms if they return, and you can self treat with an over the counter vaginal yeast infection cream. If not yeast, your doctor may want to test for a vaginal bacterial infection or even an std (sexually transmitted disease). If your symptoms have resolved then maybe you were merely having irritation from a lubricant or possible a condom if one was used. Regardless, if your symptoms are still present then you need an evaluation.
Good luck. ...Read more

The outside of my vagina (not where the hair grows) pink area is itchy. No unusual smell or discharge or spots. I do douche?

The outside of my vagina (not where the hair grows) pink area is itchy. No unusual smell or discharge or spots. I do douche?

Don't douche: First don't douche. The vagina does a great job cleaning itself and you don't need to douche. Douching will only make the healthy normal flora of the vagina off. Second the two most common causes of itching are contact dermatitis and yeast infection. If you are using any new products then stop doing so and see if this makes a difference. ...Read more

My husband always complains about a smell from my vagina, and often I notice a thick white discharge. But tests for yeast or b.V are always negative.

It's just chemistry: If you have been tested for overgrowth of yeast or bacteria and no pathology has been found, I would have to surmise that this is just your natural smell. Think about taking a deep whiff of a handful of anybody's hair - everybody has their own genetically-programmed aromas (everywhere). The discharge bothers me a little bit, though; I would not recommend douching. Hubby needs a chill pill. ...Read more
