JA: OK. The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Gynecologist should be aware of?
Customer: No I don't believe so

Hello,

these symptoms are not typical for pregnancy and the period which took place after the sexual contact exclude it too. Instead a vaginal infection could be the reason. Often it´s a yeast infection, so an over-the-counter creme could resolve the problem (clotrimazole). If this doesn´t help, examination by your OB/GYN would be recommended.

Hope you get well soon, kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele
