Hello, Welcome to Just answer! I
Based on your description, it looks like a case of yeast infection.
Have you tried any OTC meds?
what exactly are the symptoms of a yeast infection, i've thought of that but when i looked it up it didnt seem to match up
Your presentation is very typical for yeast infection. You can try OTC anti fungal meds to get rid of it.
which one? and how do I know its that for sure? could it be anything else?
You can not expect to have all the symptoms at the same time....
White paste like discharge is very typical.... other symptoms could be itching, burning,
Its been happening for a while now, is it possible that it has stayed for this long? and when will my discharge go back to normal saying it is a YI and I take OTC meds?
You can read more about it from this link.
Yes, you can take OTC meds and see if you feel better. If no recovery, then you will have to see your OBG for vaginal swab test to see why you are not responding to antifungal meds
Thank you I will do that. Is there any more you can tell me about this, like when I should expect it to clear, what I should do, Ive been ignoring it for months, thats bad right? Im just worried i've put it off so much
Usually your symptoms will subside after treatment....
Ignoring is not an option.
okay, is the OTC a pill I can take? which one should I look for specifically?
You can buy MONISTAT from OTC
You can also ask pharmacist for further information.
Is that a pill of cream?
not pill.... it is a cream
Okay. thank you very much
