Yeast Infection - Sexually Inactive For Years?

I haven't had a yeast infection in years, and I have not been sexually active in a number of years. Anyway, I was a little surprised when I had vaginal itching that appeared to be a yeast infection. I bought Monistat, and the itching stopped, but as the ointment came out, it came out a greenish color. There is no odor, but it just seems odd. Has anyone ever experienced this?

Do I Have An Std Or Yeast Infection?

I've been tested for: chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis. And the results came back negative. But I only did a urine test and blood test, no swab. I don't have any green or yellow or smelly discharge but I recently have been getting thicker whiter discharge, it could be a yeast infection? If it helps, I am on the contraceptive pill Diane 35, have been on it a year and a half, I recently used it to skip a period to go on a holiday, I have also recently started seeing someone new and been having more sex than used to but it has been protected. Do you think I have an std that wasn't picked up in the urine tests? A yeast infection? Or could it be due to hormones skipping a period (I am now almost due for my period again next week too) or from having more frequent sex lately?

The Yeast Infection That Won't Go Away!

I have had a yeast infection for three weeks which was confirmed through a culture. I have been on monistat 3, terazol 7 (prescription), gynolotrim, and diflucan. I have also tried garlic, yogurt, and have eliminated all sugar and simple carbs. I am losing my mind as I have severe internal itching, throbbing and external irritation. Infections and STDs have been ruled out. My gynecologist is at a loss and tells me they've done everything. Though I tested positive for candida albicans I wonder if I also have a less common strain that is resistant to the azoles. I can't take it anymore. I am so uncomfortable. By the way, this is the first time in 20 years I've had a yeast infection and I'm 44.

Herpes Or Possible Yeast Infection?

Over a week ago my husband and I had anal intercourse with no condom, and he ejaculated inside me. 2 days later I noticed a burning sensation around my anus. I thought because I had had diarrhea for those two days that it was just an irritation. I also thought it could also be caused by the hemorrhoid I got when I was pregnant so I started applying the creme that I was given in the hospital for it. Two more days passed and the burning and itching was getting worse so I finally took a mirror and looked at the area. It had a bunch of what looked like popped blisters around the anus. I made an appointment with my PCM and she immediately thought it was herpes. I have been married 7 years, I was tested in October of 2013 and again in June 2014 for all STD's and was negative. I do not believe my husband has cheated, and if he contracted the virus before we met wouldn't I have been affected sooner seeing as how we have never used a condom? She did a culture and told me the results can take up to 2 weeks. She prescribed me Valtrex which I have been taking for 2 days and a cream to use. The pain only seems to be getting worse and it doesnt seem to be improving and it is spreading towards my vagina. Is it possible it is something other than herpes?

Is This Herpes Or From A Yeast Infection?

I am a 21 year old female. Just last month I had unprotected sex with a new sex partner. About a week after doing so I performed oral sex on him, we did not have sex though. The night I performed oral sex on him he was very restless that night like he was becoming sick, and he told me he was not feeling well. The very next day I developed a sore throat and went out with my friends. I was sharing a drink with my one friend (girl) and then very next day she also became sick. All of our symptoms included swollen tonsils with white spits, fevers, ulcers on the inside of the mouth and one ulcer on the lip but it was almost on the inside though you could see half of the ulcer when mouth was closed. At first I thought it was strep so I gotten tested and it came back negative. Then I believed it was herpes and the doctor said if anything maybe the coxsackie virus which isn't oral herpes. Well, the first time I got tested for strep they treated me with amoxicillin anyways. 3x a day for ten days. I had a yeast infection before starting the medication by the 7th day of the antibiotic my yeast infection was very bad I remember itching a lot at night. The next day I got a very hot shower. When I had gotten out of the shower I was wiping away my discharge "down there". Well as I was wiping my vaginal opening there were two white spots that were flat and white almost like two little ulcers but they felt more like a scabs. They did not hurt what so ever even when touched. I started to panic, I called my gyno and got in the very next hour. He said they don't really appear to be herpes if they don't hurt he said they might have been from scratching. Also i did not have swollen glands down there.  He cultured them and I went home. The next day I looked down there again and they were completely gone! Like I never had that happened to me no scars or anything! My culture of the "lesions"(2) came back negative along with all of the other tests they also did. Though, I am very worried this might be herpes (herpes) still. I don't understand this happening to me and I wonder if I should get bloodwork done. I heard the first outbreak of herpes is so painful, I didn't have any pain. And I always take a look down there all of the time and I only noticed having those for one day and then they disappeared, what do you think this was doctor? Thank you, and I apologize how long this is.

Is This Herpes Or A Yeast Infection?

Okay So On April 7th, I had sex with this guy from my job. We had a condom on and then the condom had gotten stuck inside of me and then it was stuck for a day. After I removed the condom from my body, I took the my way pill to avoid getting pregnant. A week later, April 15th, I had a bad reaction. My vagina was swollen and itchy and very burning. I had little red pimples which instantly turned into white sores about an hour later. It oozing white puss. I get tested and  I was negative for Gonn and Chlymida (spelling) and diagnosed as a yeast infection. I was given terconazole the cream and everything went back to normal, My vagina was feeling better, no bumps or nothing. Well now, 2 weeks later, I have no bumps or nothing but my vagina is still burning, itchy, and I have white thick discharge which is sometimes watery.  It has no odor, my vagina never smells. I also have bad abdominal pain and I went back to the clinic and was prescribed fluconazole which stopped my stomach ache for a while but It caused my stomach to feel like a burning. Also my anus is very itchy but no bumps. Is this the start of herpes? The burning senstation comes and goes.

Herpes Or A Yeast Infection?

This is my question BUT, I already know I have herpes! Have been diagnosed in 2002. There is no question that I have

My question remains. Am I having OBs or yeast infections?

No blisters, I am on Valtrex suppressive therapy. Itchy vagina with cottage cheese like substance way up, not being discharged.

I have always wondered if those with herpes can have OBs that MIMIC yeast infections?

I have yet to have this answered after 5 years.

I'm not going to keep running to the doctor for Monistat and spending money when it's an OB. But is it?

Recurring Yeast Infection? Or Something Else?

Hi, everyone. I've been part of the community for a few weeks now but wanted to introduce myself and maybe ask for some help with a problem I'm having.

I'm 33 years old and I have a problem with chronic vaginal yeast infections. I used to get them all the time. I'm talking 1-2x per month, like clockwork. The more frequently I got them, the worse they became and the harder they were to treat.

I started working with an OBGYN who had given me a great list of things to do. I started washing my clothes differently. I switched to a natural lubricant (sweet almond oil). I changed some of my hygiene products. I also gave up soaking in the tub at the end of a long day at work (I have a pretty physical job). She also gave me a prescription for a cream similar to Monistat to use; but the instruction was to just use one tube immediately upon feeling symptoms (itching, etc). It got to the point where I could do one treatment and not have to do any others. The only time this didn't work was when I took antibiotics, which was a separate nightmare altogether, as I'm sure most of you know. Over time, I started to have my infections less frequently.

Last year, they started to come back more frequently. I also started to feel really tired and I had some dry patches on my arms and legs. I also developed an itchier fungal rash in my inner thigh. I saw another OBGYN and she had me use some topical antifungal creams. The rashes would clear up but then they'd come back a few weeks later.

I did some research online and found Dr Eric Bakker ND and his site on yeast infections. I started to follow a Candida diet protocol and I actually began to feel a LOT better. I followed the entire regime for about 9 months and I weeded out all of the glutenous and sugary foods my body has mild allergic reactions to.

My problem now is that I seem to have another yeast infection. I mean, that's normal, thanks to hormones. I didn't expect I'd never get a vaginal YI ever again in my life. The problem is that after a course of treatment, I don't have discharge or itching any longer (the itching lasted a while, though), but I do still have some irritation and redness.

Is it possible this time I don't have a yeast infection at all? Up until this point, it seemed exactly like the type of infection I've had in the past. I'm not 100% sure how to move forward at this point. I wonder if I should just use the topical cream that came in the kit for a while longer; start another treatment; see if it's BV instead? I ended the treatment about a week ago.

Yeast Infection During Pregnancy

Ok so I have had a reoccurring yeast infection for the last nearly two months. The medicine works slightly but I don't think the yeast infection ever actually goes away. All my doctor does is refill my prescription and tell me to try again. Is this normal? Any other mommies had problems with yeast infections during pregnancy?

Yeast Infection Complications

I'm a 27 year old female with absolutely no past sexual health issues. I had sex a few times with a new partner in June within a week long period. July 1 I decided to get STD tested to be safe (I usually get tested once a year). A week later the clinic called and said I had chlamydia. I was showing symptoms as well: some random itching that went very quickly and burning after sex at my g spot area. I took the antibiotics they gave me and got a yeast infection from them. I went to the gyno and she verified and prescribed me diflucan. She also said my PAP was normal (from July 1), but had some yeast present. Everything seemed normal after that other than I got a skin rash (like pimples) from the diflucan on my back, chest, and up my neck. That was verified by the gyno.

A week later I had sex again, but this time it was burning a lot at the g spot after sex and I was spotting. This was enough to freak me out and I went back to the gyno the next morning. She said that everything looked good but the chlamydia may be sticking around. She prescribed me another round of antibiotics. Once again I got a yeast infection. This time I took Monistat and it took longer to heal. I had some small cuts on my labia from the irritation that healed quickly afterwards.

In the meantime July 17 I had my yearly physical and blood work done at my physician. All my tests came back normal (including hep, herpes, and syphilis) except for a minor UTI in my urine. He prescribed me a full week of antibiotics. I waited two weeks to take them due to the yeast infection.

I had sex again 2 weeks after the 2nd dose of antibiotics for the chlamydia. I had a lot of burning afterwards--in my urethra, in my vagina? I couldn't figure it out. Mostly on my g spot again I would say. So I started the antibiotics for the UTI the doctor gave me (this week). By Wed I had a full blown yeast infection again. I used Monistat again and the yeast discharge cleared. Now I have a number of sores inside my labia minor that look like canker sores (red rimmed), as well as red irritation throughout the inside of my labia. They are very painful and it hurts to walk. My lymph nodes to the right groin are also slightly swollen and hurt to touch.

Obviously I'm freaking out because I can't go to the gyno on the weekend. Sorry that was so long, but I'm at my wits end and any advice or tips to ease the pain or ease my mind would be greatly appreciated. I know it's a chance that it could be herpes, but could be caused by the yeast infections or chlamydia.. Among other things. Any ideas?

STDs :: Yeast Infection Or Herpes?

I can't get officially tested for 4 more days, and it's clouding my vacation. I'm terrified that I have herpes. I know it's not prudent to ask the internet to try and diagnose me, but hopefully people on this forum are knowledgeable enough to give some advice. I either have a yeast infection or herpes.

Background: On Monday I completed about 10 days of antibiotics (yeast infection?). I also had sex with my new boyfriend for the first time two weeks ago, and again a few days ago (herpes?). We used condoms both times, but I know now that herpes can still spread. I didn't notice any symptoms on him. I should have asked before we had sex if he's been tested for anything, I asked him a couple of days ago and he assured me he's never noticed he had anything & the army tested him for major STDs (not sure if this includes herpes).

Symptoms: On Monday I was feeling nauseous all day and threw up. On Tuesday I had a 100 degree fever and body aches. I know that first HSV infections can lead to flu-like symptoms , but I also had just been in 3 international airports a few days previously and was jet lagged/sleep deprived so my immune system could've been iffy. Tuesday afternoon I notice slight itching around my vaginal opening. Wednesday morning I wake up and my vagina is caked with thick white discharge and the slight itching around my opening stayed the same. Some thick discharge continues. Today (Thursday) the itching isn't too bad. I woke up and checked myself in the mirror and notice a few slight, uncolored bumps around my vaginal opening. I didn't notice them when I checked Tues/Wed but it could have been due to insufficient lighting. I also shaved down there a week ago so they could be razor irritation? But I bet I'm kidding myself and they're herpes blisters. ****.

Does it sound more like herpes or a yeast infection? Should I buy an OTC yeast infection medication today?
