Im sorry if you just saw and or answered this question but

Resolved Question:

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.

Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

no

Dr Brims :

Okay, do you have any symptoms?

Customer:

no I have shown no symptoms

Customer:

it doesn't hurt when I urinate or during sex

Dr Brims :

Okay, this may be trichomonas, or it may be candida or gardnerella, she would require a pelvic exam to determine the exact cause

Dr Brims :

Are you there?

Customer:

yes

Customer:

sorry

Dr Brims :

No problem

Customer:

I can show you a picture of the discharge...

Dr Brims :

it will take me a couple of minutes because I have to get it off my phone sorry

Dr Brims :

ok

Customer:

Full Size Image

Customer:

okay apparently there was a lot more than that

Customer:

sorry that took so long

Dr Brims :

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?

Customer:

Thank you doctor!

Customer:

That eases my mind so much!

Dr Brims :

You're quite welcome

If I could shake your hand right now I definitely would!

Customer:

I have one more question

Dr Brims :

Please remember to click a rating button prior to exiting the chat session

Dr Brims :

ok

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)

Alright, that makes sense.

Thank you again.
