I am perplexed by a recent problem I've been having. I have a history of vaginal irritation (mainly from yeast), but nothing as severe as I've had for the past three months during my period. I was checked out by several CNP's at different Planned Parenthood locations, but they could not tell me why I get this burning sensation during my period. Today was the absolute WORST. It felt like straight hydrochloric acid was dripping out of my vagina.
I'm racking my brains trying to figure out WHY I'm having this problem. STD's are not an issue--I'm in a monogamous relationship with a wonderful man, so no worries there. My last exam less than a week ago showed a healthy/acceptable amount of yeast and plenty of lactobacilli.
She did note that my cervix looked red. I'm going to schedule an appointment with a gyno tomorrow. I'm thinking if she can't find an explanation or treatment for this, I'll have to have her prescribe BCP's so that I won't have to go through the pain every month.
I was adamently against them, but I don't know what else to do at this point.
Has anyone been through this before? Any advice?
