This is Dr. David

what pills have you tried and for how long?

you do need to see a gyn doctor and get a proper gyn exam and vaginal culture

you could have a vaginal vaginal infection as well which would also need treatment

and you need to increase your probiotic and yogurt intake to help add good bacteria into your vaginal canal

you need to avoid sexual activity and avoid douching as well.

This has gone on for almost 5 years now. I have taken the metrodonizol countless times the flagistain creams and suppositories.. What is vaginal vaginal infection?
Expert:  Dr David replied 6 months ago.

sorry.

vaginal fungal infection.

it sounds like it is time to see a gyn doctor and get a proper gyn exam and evaluation.

you should not continue to just treat yourself over thie.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
They all need a referral. Do they not?
Expert:  Dr David replied 6 months ago.

no.

this depends on your health insurance policy.

most health insurance plans don't need referral to see a gyn doctor or primary care doctor.

you should call up your health insurance plan to ask them

and ask them to see which gyn doctors are in net work for you in your area

let me know if you have other questions.
