Hi there. Do you have a regular ob/gyn that you can see? I'd schedule an appointment with that specialist to sort this out. I'm glad you don't have herpes, by the way. That's GOOD news as that may clear up with medication but does come back ... periodically for life.
So, you had a yeast infection. There is medication one can take to treat it systemically. Is that what you mean by 'antibiotic'? It isn't really an antibiotic but I'm assuming you are talking about the pill you take for yeast infections. (in truth, antibiotics can add to yeast overgrowth as it kills natural flora). You did get better for a bit? I would say one of two things is going on--- you still have or have another yeast infection or you now have bacterial vaginosis. Do you notice any smell with the discharge? Is it milky in nature? BV can be a bit hard to treat and they do so with flagyl which a doctor prescribes to you. They will often treat one's partner for it as well.
So, with either of these two scenarios, you need to be seen by your doctor again to determine what is going on. You can ask for a culture to be done. And if it is neither of those, the doctor can determine what to do next to help you overcome this. good luck
Yes, it was pills the doctors gave me. As far as an odor, I don't have one. But I'm tired of going to the doctor which is once and a blue moon and get the living day lights scared out of me. To only find out they missed diagnose me. But I do thank you ever so much for the kind words and your advice.
Yes, it can be frustrating. We have to be our own advocates. I'd write out everything that has happened prior to going to the doctor so that you don't forget anything (I always do in the heat of the moment). Hopefully you can be effectively treated to move past this. It sounds uncomfortable. Come back and let us know how it goes, okay? good luck
You should consult a GYN Specialist. I think cultures should be redone and a biopsy obtained.
Definitely see a specialist to sort this out. I know you hate seeing all these physicians but you need to find out what you are dealing with and be treated properly.
BTW: the ones who have "misdiagnosed" you weren't GYN Specialists.
Thank you ladies for the kind comments. Will be making an appointment to my obgyn soon.
All the best dear and keep us posted.
Will do. Now if I could do something to take care of the fear I have.
Yes, unfortunately this isn't an easy position to be in dear, but you got us wishing the best for you too.
Thank you so much. I really do appreciate that.
