I'm sorry if you just saw and or answered this question but I don't know how to see the answers to them once I have asked them..
Anyway, to boil this down.
I had sex, with a condom, about a year ago with a partner that I did not know.
I have shown no symptoms of anything and I had a blood sample taken when I got a new girlfriend to test for STD's.
A few days ago I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend, we had done this a couple of times before, the only difference this time is that I had not showered in a few days.
The next day she complained of vaginal discharge she described as yellow in color and smelling of chlorine.
We waited a couple of days and yesterday she complained of a large amount of discharge which smelled of vinegar.
About a week prior to these events she had switched birth control from the pill to a nuva ring.
She had developed a rash on her abdomen above the vagina shortly after switching.
What would you say this is? We are worried it might be trich.

no

it doesn't hurt when I urinate or during sex

This looks like candida

Customer:

I'm sorry I don't know what that is..

Dr Brims :

That is a yeast infection, common in females

Customer:

Oh I was just reading about it and it sounds serious

Customer:

How do you treat it?

Dr Brims :

It is treated with diflucan, or monistat, which can be obtained at any pharmacy

Customer:

Oh sorry, I didn't read enough, so you think it looks like a simple yeast infection?

Thank you doctor!

Dr Brims :

Feel free to ask

Customer:

It describes moodiness and odd sleeping patterns in one of the articles I was just reading, she has both of those symptoms and has for a while can you have an infection and have no visible symptoms? We attributed it to the birth control pill

Dr Brims :

It could be an infection but I think it is from yeast (candida)

Customer:

Alright, that makes sense.

Thank you again.
