itchy vagina? vaginal candidiasis
      #265378 - 08/09/12 12:37 PM

I am HIV+ and recently my vagina has been itchy. Usually before I get my period. I don't have any STI's. The doctor said this may happen more often since I am HIV+. Is anyone experiencing this? Is there any way to get rid of it or make it better? It's quite uncomfortable...

Try some over the counter products such as vagasil. See if that helps. You will also begin to notice , in , time, that with the diagnosis and meds we tend to get yeast infections. Not like the ones when your negative. These won't itch or burn , just an off color discharge. You can either get some diflucan for it or just learn to live with it. It will always come back due to the meds. Do not let doctors tell you this is normal for any female , most will cause the gyn's just don't realize about Hiv.But it's nothing to be alarmed about.

My GYN gave me a few prescriptions for metronidazole and I must say after doing one prescription and, 7 days of medicated douche I have not had that problem in a long time. but I keep the prescription standing just in case. also, eat some greek yogurt everyday along with cutting out sugary sodas, juice and a lot of carbs. watching your diet helps the ph balance in your vaguna
