I made 2 pap smears at 2 different gyn, 1 week apart, one says CIN1, no HPV, the other one no CIN no HPV. Which one is wrong and why?

I made 2 pap smears at 2 different gyn, 1 week apart, one says CIN1, no HPV, the other one no CIN no HPV. Which one is wrong and why?

Cervical dysplasia: As in my previous reply, the negative (normal) result is wrong. Pap smears miss up to 30% of cervical dysplasia, but an abnormal result never is false. You definitely have dysplasia/CIN1. ...Read more

What OTC drugs cure vaginal yeast infections in one day?

What OTC drugs cure vaginal yeast infections in one day?

Probably none: There are several otc vaginal yeast infection treatments available - most are multiple day vaginal creams. There is one that requires only one dose. One dose doesn't necessarily mean one day cure - it could take more than one day for the medication to be effective. Most of the otc yeast medications are effective about 70% of the time - if your symptoms persist, see your doctor. ...Read more

Whick one is worst BV or yeast infections?

Whick one is worst BV or yeast infections?

Neither: Both yeast and bacterial vaginosis are common vaginal infections in women. Most women have relatively mild symptoms from both. But occasional women can get really bad yeast and really bad bacterial vaginosis infections. Neither cause serious health issues by themselves, so neither is a worse infection to have. ...Read more

I've had 2 abn paps, hrhpv e6/e7, yeast and bv for over a yr. Tried to treat yeast and bv. Neg biopsy. What next? Continue to watch and wait?

I've had 2 abn paps, hrhpv e6/e7, yeast and bv for over a yr. Tried to treat yeast and bv. Neg biopsy. What next? Continue to watch and wait?

Preventing yeast, BV: For your HPV, the answer is yes: continue to watch and wait i.e. follow your doctor's advice about follow-up paps, HPV testing, etc. Recurrent or persistent yeast or BV usually can be prevented, e.g. fluconazole (Diflucan) by mouth once a week, and perhaps vaginal MetroGel or boric acid vaginal capsules. If your doc is unfamiliar with these, consult w/ a gyn who specializes in infectious diseases. ...Read more

Vaginal swab- heavy growth of Candida krusei. Second candida infection since 2015. Been on oral fluconazole for 4 days. What other tests should I do?

Fluconazole no good: Candida krusei usually is resistant to fluconazole. It's just bad luck, probably with no implications for your general health. You just need a different drug, and also should avoid other "azole" drugs. Unfortunately, C. krusei also can be resistant to some of the common alternate drugs. Ask your doctor about trying nystatin or caspofungin. Your strain can be tested to know which drugs are active. ...Read more

Clear of std's. Thought I had a yeast infection. Used fluconazole 100mg for 7 days every other day and Monistat 7. Still having vagina irritation..?

Candida glabrata?: The usual cause of vaginal yeast infections is Candida albicans. However, C. glabrata causes 10-15% of infections, and many C. glabrata strains are resitant to the "azole" drugs. See your doctor and ask about alternative treatments, such as nystatin, flucytosine, or caspofungin. ...Read more

Watery vaginal discharge. No itch.  Smells like apple cider. Neg for trich gon chly, normal yeast and bac flora per lab. Ocurring 3 + yrs. Any sugg?

Bacterial vaginosis?: The only way you will get a good understanding of the cause of this will be to have the discharge analyzed and cultured by an OB. By your comments it appears you may have done this already. BV is a common problem with several effective therapies. See your OB to see if that can be addressed and treated, if that is the issue. It may be related to some aspect of your daily routine- see your OB ...Read more

What causes recurrent vaginal yeast infections Urine test showed glucose-absent.Took once intraconazole 400mg for one day but not cured. Age 21 virgin?

Yeast infection: This can be predisposed to by diabetes (without there being glycosuria), antibiotics taken for other reasons, immune suppression, stress, lack of sleep, illnesses, etc. Itraconazole for one day may not be adequate therapy. Discuss with your doctor and if not satisfied you may want to get a second opinion. Best wishes. ...Read more

Re-testing: Get re-tested to see if your treatment actually cured you of the infection! Alternatively get a check up with your regular doctor to see if you might not have something predisposing you to these infections, such as diabetes or an immune disorder. ...Read more

Outside of vagina itches.Bearable. Regular discharge.no oder.No inside itch.std?or a yeast infection?took a Plan B generic form 5weeks ago.

Be examined: Based on your description it may be something your perineum, or bottom area is coming in contact with. Be checked to make sure it is not something else. I don't believe it is related to Plan B. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) if no allergies and cold packs may be helpful. Bathing in Aveeno may also help. ...Read more

19 mo old w/ yeast infection for 2 wks. Tried nystatin, monistat, clotrimazole, zinc oxide, triple paste, maloxx, & no diaper. Not working, its worse.

19 mo old w/ yeast infection for 2 wks. Tried nystatin, monistat, clotrimazole, zinc oxide, triple paste, maloxx, & no diaper. Not working, its worse.

"diaper rash": A number of conditions cause so called "diaper rash." i wonder about the duration of treatment rendered since 6 different creams, independently or in combination, have been used in 2 weeks period. If no response to Nystatin was observed in a week, the child is unlikely to have yeast infection unless immunocompromised. Seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, and zinc deficiency are other possibilities. ...Read more

Doubtful: Yeast infections are not sexually transmitted so the sex you participated in should not disturb that unless your partner introduced another infection inside you. Best to get checked if you are still having persistent discharge. ...Read more

Diagnosed with bacterial vaginitis and yeast infection 7daysago. Took Diflucan (fluconazole) and intravaginal AB. White clumps continue and itching back. Monistat3?

Return to doctor: Hmmm... something doesn't compute. Bacterial vaginosis is not effectively treated with intravaginal antibiotics; it requires antibiotic by mouth (usually metronidazole). Fluconazole (Diflucan) usually works well for yeast, but miconazole (Monistat) is very similar and might not help if fluconazole did not. Return to be rechecked by the doctor or clinic where you were diagnosed and treated. ...Read more
