Customer Question

I am 51 yrs old now. For the last 2 yrs, my menstrual periods is irregular and have little periods like almost everyday before heavy ones every 2 months. I have been married for 21 yrs now and only been with my hubby. But the last 2 yrs also, I have been having yellowish vaginal drainage everyday. I bought a over the counter monistat and it slows it down but never goes away. What is wrong with me? It is frustrating and do I need a prescription ?
