So lately I've been very fatigued. I have been having unprotected sex since the 23 of August. Now I'm having a dull pain in my uterus area, more towards the right side thought it might be ovulation but then I remember that I had cervical mucous that suggested ovulation a week ago. And I'm due to start my period 6 days. I've been breaking out with acne recently and been having to pee more often. Also, I feel very nauseous right after I wake up or when I try to eat sweet foods. I also have had 2 yeast infections within the past 3 weeks.

Hi CatMouse,

Thank you for posting! If you have been having unprotected sex then it is possible for you to be pregnant-- wait until your period is late to test for pregnancy.

As far as your yeast infections, here are some risk factors and symptoms:

Risk Factors

These factors increase your chance of a yeast infection. Tell your doctor if you have any of these risk factors:

  • Situations that can cause hormonal changes:
    • Birth control pills
    • Pregnancy
    • Menopause
    • Steroid use
  • Broad-spectrum antibiotics
  • Diabetes , especially when blood sugar is not well-controlled
  • A compromised immune system, such as with HIV infection
  • Perfumed feminine hygiene sprays, deodorant tampons, or bubble bath
  • Tight jeans, synthetic underwear, or a wet swimsuit
  • Douching



If you have any of these symptoms do not assume it is due to a yeast infection. While typical of yeast infections, they may be caused by other conditions. Tell your doctor if you have any of these:

  • Vaginal itching, ranging from mild to severe
  • A clumpy, vaginal discharge that may look like cottage cheese
  • Vaginal soreness, irritation, or burning
  • Rash or redness on the skin outside the vagina
  • Painful urination
  • Painful sexual intercourse


Keep us posted!
