Re: PLEASE PLEASE HELP the doctors say I ave normal cultures but i keep having discha

After doing a search on these boards there are two possibilities I can think of...One is cytolytic vaginosis:

"Cytolytic vaginosis, a not uncommon condition, is frequently misdiagnosed because it is confused with Candida. Many practitioners rely on their clinical judgment alone rather than the use of high-quality microscopes and the results of a wet smear. Compounding the problem of misdiagnosis is that patients assume that their symptoms are caused by a yeast infection, which results in telephone requests for medication from their physicians instead of an office consultation. Cytolytic vaginosis is characterized by pruritus, dyspareunia, vulvar dysuria, and cyclical increase in symptoms more pronounced during the luteal phase. Diagnostic criteria include a high risk of suspicion; the absence of Trichomonas, Gardnerella, or Candida on wet smear; an increased number of lactobacilli; a paucity of white blood cells; evidence of cytolysis; and the presence of discharge; and a pH between 3.5 and 4.5. Treatment entails use of sodium bicarbonate douches."

Or one lady here said that she had a different strain of yeast, called Candida Glabrata, that wasn't detected by normal wet prep. That the doctors didn't know how to recognize it because it is a different strain than the more common Candida Albicans. Bring these possibilities to your doctor's attention. Good luck!

OMG THANK YOU SO MUCH after reading a lot about this Cytolytic vaginosis i really do believe this could be the case. how do i go about asking my doctor if she knows about this without insulting her or her not taking me seriously? i feel like she might not know about it or she might not een take the time to look at my mounts to see if this is what it is...
