In brief: Don't give up!

This is one of the most frustrating problems for patients.
On the surface a vaginal infection seems like a simple problem; chronic ones are not. They can take over your life. I do not do cultures, I use a different technology (using dna probes) to diagnose the infectious agent. Some treatments can take months. Some patients have yeast allergies which can aggrevate the problem, etc...Don't give up.
