Ob-Gyn questions? Ask a gynecologist online.
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry to hear that you are having recurrent yeast infections. Please provide some additional information so I may better help you.
Are you Male or female? What is your age? If female, do you douche?
There are several reasons for getting yeast infections. One is that you have elevated glucose levels (diabetes, pre-diabetes). Wearing underwear made with polyester rather than cotton. If female, changing the normal flora in your vagina by douching. Using scented bath products. Any of these can cause or increase the frequency of infections. I will await your response to my questions.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
Your description is that of BV or Trichomoniasis. Both of which require an antibiotic, Metronidazole for the two of you and absolutely no douching. May I suggest you schedule an appointment with your PCP or GYN to get evaluated and treated. Your GYN should have no problem prescribing for the two of you.
