First of all hi guys im new to this board i hope you can help me
ok, i think ive got thrush, but im not sure. There is a yukky white lumpy discharge around my vagina and its a bit itchy. the inner lips are also a bit swollen and red. Ive read about thrush and it does sound like the symptoms but some articles said it might be a sign of HIV! I dont think thats likely. I havent had sex for about 3 weeks and ive only just noticed the symptoms in the last few days. If i described these symptoms to a doctor do you think shed know it was thrush or not? or would she need to look at it (how embarrassing). Or can i just get something over the counter at a pharmacy and not see the doctor at all? Ive never had thrush before so i dont really know how its treated or anything.
If anyone can help me i would appreciate it thanks
