sexually transmitted dieses
Sep 5, 2001

Everytime I have sex i feel some pain on the vaginal area & everyday I pass out some thick white discharge. This has been ongoing for years now. SOmetime its very itchy & irritable. Its like the skin around my vagina becomes very swollen & sensitive. What could be the problem?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It sounds like you have a vaginal yeast infection that is either very persistent, or keeps coming back. See your doctor to make sure that's what it is, and get tested for both HIV and diabetes, both of which can be associated with persistent and recurrent candida vaginitis.

KS question
what does a P24 test mean?
