Has anyone was treated for bacterial vaginosis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span></span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span></span> d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>u</span>ring first trimester?

The jock itch has been gone since my doctor prescribed Lotrison as a PRN back d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>u</span>ring the first menstrual period problem in 2010.

The only sure way to find out is to get tested. I get recurring mild yeast infections about every other month and they go away w/af. I think it's just the imbalance of bacteria at that time of the month. If you get open sores like und-color: #dae8f4'>canker sores, cold sores, etc. I might be a little concerned. The yeast causes irritation and burning but not the cold sore type. You und-color: #dae8f4'>can get sores from a yi if you scratch it. If no other symptoms, I would say just yi.
have you been tested for STD's??
If yo<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>u</span> are menstruating with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span></span>, make sure yo<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>u</span> use a pad rather than a tampon, and make sure you change the pad often. Moisture remaining close to the skin will exacerbate the problem. Eating a cup of yogurt a day when taking antibiotics will sometimes help avoid the yeast infection b/c of the active cultures.
are you absolutely certain that is it a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span></span>? have yo<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>u</span> had one before and had a dr. confirm? what are yo<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>u</span>r symptoms? i once had an infection and thought that it was a yeast infection. I bought the cream and made it worse. i went to the dr. and there was no yeast present. i have heard that the 1 day treatment is not as effective as the 3-7 day. i usually go with the 3 day but being as thrifty as i am, the 7 day is less expensive!
I was wondering...with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infecti<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span></span></span> is it normal to feel a tickle feeling in your pelvis, with burning and white discharge? The tickle feeling is unbearable...but I have been on difluund-color: #dae8f4'>can for 3 weeks now (1 pill a week) and Im starting to get better...but Im not completely cured..Im scared shouldnt my infection be gone by now? Im going to the Doctor soon...I also have inflammation in my vaginal area that showed up on my pap...maybe that is making everything take so long to go away...ugh!!!
