It's been a month and a half or so that I have been dealing with extremely annoying vaginal symptoms. These include white "sticky" discharge, and intense itching. I thought it was a yeast infection (especially since I had just been on antibiotics) and tried everything to make it go away...applying yogurt to the area, garlic, taking garlic supplements... I used two 3-day suppository treatments. Nothing worked. So I went to the doctor, who prescribed 2 doses of oral fluconazole. I was instructed to take one, wait 3 days, and take the second if the first didn't work. It didn't, so I took the second pill. No results. Symptoms persisted. Then I was prescribed a topical nystatin-triamcinolone cream which hasn't been helping either. They took a sample from my vagina which they cultured and tested for fungus. The result was negative. Then I went to a gynecologist who told me my discharge was normal and that the itching is just irritation from everything I have been using. I'm pretty sure she is wrong as when I have my period, the symptoms (white discharge and itching) go away and then return, which I read can happen with a yeast infection due to varying pH levels. Most significant is the itching. It completely goes away when I have my period and as soon as it's over it comes back. I really don't think this itching is due to simple "irritation," this is an itch like no other, it is unbearable. It's very hard and uncomfortable for me to go about my day. I am desperate for answers. The gynecologist assured me it could not be yeast, as the culture was negative, but I don't see what else could be going on. The discharge has absolutely no odor so it couldn't be a bacterial infection. I don't know what to do at this point. If you read to this point and have advice for me, I thank you.
