hi Saturday 21st I had protective sex but I believe I got an yeast infection from it because ever since then is when my symptoms started, the burning, itching and soreness around the outside of my vagina, after 5 days i started seeing the discharge it was cloudy white no oder, I got treatment fluconazole 1 dose tablet i was told to only take one and clotrimazole candida v gel which i was told to apply on the outside and inside of my vagina for 7 days, after 3 days my symptoms such as the burning, itching and soreness ease up and is gone now, i am on the 5th day of treatment but i am still seeing the discharge but not much of it only when i take a shower i see it, how long will it take for the discharge to go?? i am also on birth control is that the problem?? (I've also had an yeast infection before but that was years ago) after i finish the treatment completely and if i still see the discharge what should i do??

Hello candy123,

Welcome again to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community with your questions.
I must redirect you to your physician, who prescribed this treatment plan.

I suggest you continue with applying the gel for the full seven days as directed. If you continue to see the discharge on day 8, reach out to your physician's office. I could not find any information on how long it takes for the discharge to disappear.

Does your physician know that you are taking oral contraceptives? Generally, medications that suppress the immune system.
