Doctor insights on:
No good otc: Gardnerella or bacterial vaginosis is a common vaginal infection cause by over growth of a bad bacteria or death of good bacterial. It can be affected by spermicide, doucheiing (don't do this!), overenthusiastic cleaning or bad luck.

Multiple treatments.: Urethral caruncles are benign outgrowths of tissue at the urethral opening, occurring primarily in postmenopausal women. If there are no symptoms, & it appears benign, no treatment is necessary. For symptoms such as bleeding & pain, topical estrogen cream for 2-3 months, warm sitz-baths & anti-inflammatory drugs can be used. If large and painful, surgical excision can be performed. ...Read more

There is controversy about newer mesh surgery versus older methods. There is more and more robotic prolapse surgery.

I wouldn't douche but using a peri-bottle to irrigate your vulva & perianal area might help. Utilizing intravaginal preparations like luvena may be helpful in keeping the balance of good & bad bacteria. ...Read more
Candida Glabrata: This is a good question! Candida Glabrata is often resistant to our standard anti-fungal vaginal creams (like monistat, lotrimin, and terazol) as well as the standard oral medication: difluan. There are other, stronger antifungal agents, but they may carry more risk to your health. I usually prescribe compounded Boric Acid vaginal capsules for this condition. It works most of the time. ...Read more
Evaluation: It's best, at 66, to be seen by a doctor for vaginal itching. Most common reason, of course, would be yeast infection. Other possibilities would be lichen sclerosis or vaginal atrophy, for example. A doctor with an exam, however, can give you the best possible assessment. Good luck! ...Read more
Many options.: Observation - a cystocele does not necessarily need to be treated. Pessary - a pessary is a device that can be inserted into the vagina to support the bladder or any other organ that is dropping.

Consult with your doctor to determine which procedure would be best suited for your particular problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: Do not get into stretching exercises to enlarge the penis. Outside of the approved vacuum device to allow an erection, don't manipulate the penis to enlarge it. It is dangerous.
