UTI/STD: Your symptoms, as described, sound like a Urinary Tract Infection or Sexually Transmitted Disease. Are you sexually active? Regardless, you will need to be evaluated by a physician and have your urine tested and cultured. You should also be screened for STDs (HIV, GC/Chlamydia, RPR). An empiric antibiotic could be started depending on your answers to additional SHx questions. See a doctor ASAP. ...Read more

Im experiencing a clear watery copious vaginal discharge. No odor, burning, itching, or signs of infection.  What are s/s this could be a rare ca?

Unlikely: Copious discharge isn't likely cancer. Most likely is a bacterial infection or irritation/inflammation. You can see doctor and they can test to make sure. Sometimes you can have an infection without smell or itching. Often women with chlamydia have no indication that they have this infection. See a doctor and get tested, just to be sure. ...Read more

Yeast infection?: Burning/pain upon urination (peeing) suggests bladder/kidney infection or sexually transmitted disease. Itch w/white cottage cheese discharge suggests yeast infection (common after antibiotics) which often responds to over-the-counter medications. Many different reasons for odor, some of which may require antibiotics. Don't recommend douche. See your Family Doc if no improvement. ...Read more

Genital abrasion: You may have sustained an abrasion/scratch in your genitals, which can burn when exposed to urine. Itch may be from yeast infection w/scratching leading to abrasion. In any case, best to see your Family Doc, GYN or Planned Parenthood for evaluation, diagnosis & treatment, even birth control. ...Read more

I've been having vaginal irritation (burning, itching, etc) for the past few days but with normal discarge and no odor. Help?

Yeast?: These are typical symptoms for a vaginal yeast infection. Contrary to common opinion (or what you may have read online or elsewhere), yeast infections cause no significant odor and often no increased discharge. See your doctor; or perhaps try one of the many effective over-the-counter vaginal yeast meds (any with active incredient ending in "azole"). But for sure see a doctor if it doesn't work. ...Read more

I have a brown vaginal discharge that is amplified with intercourse. There is an odor but no pain, itching, or burning.  What could be causing this?

Infection: This could be caused by a cervical or vaginal infection. The most common vaginal infection is bacterial vaginosis and the main symptom is an odor. In this case the peroxidase positive lactobacillus which are the most common bacteria in the vagina get killed off, the pH rises and anaerobic bacteria over grow. It is easy to diagnose and treat but you need to see your doctor to do so. Good luck. ...Read more

Few possibilities: It appears that you have seen your doctor. Left flank pain may indicate a kidney problem therefore I suggest a sonogram of the kidneys. Itching in the vagina is generally due to candida infection. There is no harm in trying a course of over the counter Monistat7 vaginal cream. Stay in contact with your doctor and tell him about my suggestions ...Read more

Infection?: Feeling like you need to urinate frequently a small amount and pain when you urinate can be signes of a bladder infection. You may may need antibiotics. Its simple to find out. Get a urinalysis. In the mean-time, drinking cranberry juice, lots of water and taking over-the-counter Azo may help. There are other possible causes but a bladder infection is the most common. ...Read more

Vaginal irritation and burning x5 days, tx x2 days with metro gel. Sx amplified and now have foul odor, dysuria, and thick d/c. Wet prep in office =. ?

BV? STD? Herpes?: You give mixed symptoms suggesting different problems. Discharge with "foul" odor suggests trichomonas (an STD) or bacterial vaginosis. "Thick" discharge sounds like an STD such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. Vaginal irritation and itching suggest yeast or herpes, and herpes can trigger BV. The main thing is to stop guessing, stop treating yourself with MetroGel, and see a doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more

Bacterial Vaginosis: Knowing you are not preg or sex active helps. This could be a UTI and if so needs to be dx'd and tx't. It could also be bacterial vaginosis, this is an overgrowth of atypical vaginal bacteria which when symptomatic produce a vaginal odor (often described as fishy) and discharge. It is treated with abx & prognosis is good usually causes no probs unless preg. Main other concern would be yeast infect ...Read more
