Anon, it sounds like you might just have a vaginal infection or a yeast infection also. Are you familiar with either of them? Did you by chance go visit the link I posted up top to the original poster about types of vaginitis? They itch and they produce a discharge. Here's that link:


Please don't be so worried. It's a common condition and if the product you bought doesn't work, please go see your doctor. It's very likely that with a prescription product, it will be cleared up in no time.

Do you know for sure what your boyfriend's history is? You didn't say whether the sex you had was unprotected, but I am assuming that it was. Did you use a condom or are you considering using birth control in the future?

HI. I'm from Singapore and I've only slept with my boyfriend before and that was my first and last time. After a few days to that night, I'm having a itcheness for a few days before having the yellow cremish discharge. It was really itching and red but I did not feel any pain in my urination. I've bought a feminine hygiene daily cleansing protection and have been using it for 2-3 days. I'm really worried and have not consulted a doctor yet. I would like to ask what happen and what should I do. Is it some kind of diseases contracting aids? Please reply to my comment as soon as possible.

I'm so sorry your kidney stone problem has reoccured. Are you sure that's what it is, have you seen your regular doctor about it or is your ob/gyn your primary care doctor as well?

Do you know how you got the vaginal infection due to the kidney stones before?

I imagine that what your ob/gyn gave you to clear it up before was an antibiotic if you took it orally. Does that sound like what you took?

My advice at this point would be yes, to see a doctor -- either your general doctor or your ob/gyn. It sounds like the kidney stone needs to be treated either way, and when you're there, please mention the possibility that the vaginal infection seems to have returned as well. Don't wait for more discomfort -- like the itching or the pain -- to return before you get an appointment, all right?

If you have more information, please don't hesitate to update us. A lot of things can affect the inner workings of our bodies -- new medications, changes in our stress levels, changes in our diets. It's possible that you've got something that needs to be changed since this may be a recurring issue. Take care.

Anon, did the urologist give you any medicine to help clear up the redness and irritation?

I would say that if you don't have any itching, redness or pain, you are probably OK. But if you do have any of those symptoms, yes, I would go back to the ob/gyn.

It sounds to me like you had an antibiotic before. What do you mean when you say they were too heavy for you to bear? Did the medicine cause other symptoms?

Did you finish your medicine? Please tell the doctor this when you go. It's important.

Next time a doctor prescribes antibiotics for you, try eating some yogurt every day. That will help with the effects of the antibiotics in your system.
