Well first time I went to a gynocologist and I described what I had. She told me it was yeast infection and gave me a prescription.
For some reason, when I tried to using the over the counter ones, it just didn't work. But the Diflucan cleared it up right away.
You could also go to your family doctor or a clinic and describe your symptoms. To me it sounds like a yeast infection (which is very common) but you should go see the doctor and tell them your symptoms and see what they have to say.
Don't be embarrased; doctors are professionals who deal w these problems on a daily basis and have a better understanding of what's going on. It doesn't mean you're dirty or anything bad...yeast infections happen just because.
If you take a broad range antibiotic, it will kill all of the bacteria in your body including the bacteria in your virgina that keeps the Candidia (yeast) under control. Also, diabetics are more prone to yeast infections just there's more sugar in the bloodstream for yeast to grow (I'm pretty sure that's the case, but don't quote me on it). You can get yeast infections from wearing wet swimming suits for too long a period of time. For me, I noticed I would a yeast infection (50%) when my boyfriend would ejaculate in me. Pretty much anything that changes/disrupts the balance of the "ecosystem" inside the vigina has the potential to cause either a yeast infection or even bacterial vaginosis
So its better to talk to your doctor, he'll give proper diagnosis and you won't have to keep "living with the probem anymore"
