I have been on all the different meds. and have followed the advice of the gyno. But it never goes away... I plan on switching birth control soon because that could be the cause... but I worry so much... I almost cry every night just thinking about it... could something be wrong with me??
Women using Nuva Ring do complain about chronic yeast infections. But, are you sexually active? If so, has your partner been treated? If not, he could be reinfecting you.
