I stop having sex around 20 weeks because of vaginal bleeding and im not drinking soda and i shower twice a day..where am i going wrong??? please share experinces or what worked for you??
Various reasons for recurrent or persistent fungal infection are incomplete treatment, treatment resistance when only one drug is used, co-existing dermatitis, diabetes and low immunity. Wear cotton underwear as much as possible and maintain proper hygiene. It would be best to see your Doctor so a pelvic examination can be performed. A sample of the vaginal discharge may be taken to confirm the specific cause of the infection. If a yeast infection is confirmed, an antifungal medication will be prescribed to you.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
