I keep getting white discharge after menses or sex which is irritating and slightly itchy but not bad. My gyn did a swab and it's negative for all pathogens including candida, trichomonas, gardnerella etc. What could be causing the discharge and how do I get rid of it? Thanks

I recently had sex with my boyfriend and we used spermicidal

Hello, I recently had sex with my boyfriend and we used spermicidal condoms. I failed to read the part on the box that says to use them once a day and between two different occasions of us having sex I used them 4 times. I read online that these can cause a blockage if used more than once because the librication will stay inside of the vagina. I have noticed a decrease in my vaginal discharge and I just feel a little discomfort. All OBGYN offices are closed today and I am not sure what to do.JA: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?Customer: The last time I had sex with him was Friday night/Saturday, before then it was fine.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I have had BV before and I am susceptible to yeast infections.

I have a question regarding pregnancy testing. I am

I have a question regarding pregnancy testing. I am wondering if 19 days after intercourse is sufficient to test for pregnancy with a standard (+/-) and digital pregnancy test from the drug store? Would the result from this test be accurate? I was told these tests were highly accurate (can detect 25 microliters HCG).I am on Nexplanon implant, but for the month of August was on the HIV medications Isentress and Truvada due to a blood exposure incident at work. I was told these medications would not interfere with the implant, but wanted to use precaution so I also used condoms and spermicide for every sex act. This week I am having irregular bleeding, and I wanted to make sure it was due to the implant and not a complication from something else. Thank you.

I am a 23 year old male. Last Thursday, I had

Hi, I am a 23 year old male. Last Thursday, I had sexual intercourse with an escort using a condom and afterwards I took the condom off and checked if there were any leaks just to make sure. After I checked it, she also checked it and I can not remember if she flushed the condom or what she did with it. I left about 25 minutes later and I am just worried she did not flush it and could take the semen out of the condom and impregnate herself. I realize that this is paranoia and that she most likely was on birth control anyway. I just wanted to know how likely is it for a woman to impregnate herself in that way?

My girlfriend and I are having a bit of pregnancy

Hello,My girlfriend and I are having a bit of pregnancy scare and I would like some advice. We had sex the evening (about 10:30 at night) of day 10 of her cycle. Her last menstrual period began April 22, 2016. (her last two cycles were 26 and 27 days and they are regular with a few days variance (usually longer when varied). We used a condom with a spermicidal lubricate and I withdraw before ejaculation. My girlfriend is sensitive to hormone contraceptives and we are exploring other options. I did not urinate but she began fallatio almost immediately after for several minutes. I did not urinate. I put on a second spermicidal condom and we began having sex again for roughly 10 minutes. However, after sometime I began to lose my erection and the condom slide off in her panties. Without knowing that the condom had slipped I inserted my penis and thrusted several times before realizing what had happened. Due to my recent ejaculation I was unable to come anywhere near orgasm the second time. As a result, we stopped intercourse and began our panic. Roughly 13 hours later (so about 12 o'clock the next afternoon, on day 11 of her cycle) she took the take action emergency contraceptive (wallgreens generic levonorgestrel pill).Our concerns are primarily:1.pregnancy risk from this mishap (we are monogamous and not concerned with STD transmission)2. Pre-ejaculation - primarily residual sperm left in my urethra which may cause pregnancy?3. Effectiveness of out "plan b" given the timing in her cycle and the 13 hours delay from our mishap to ingestion.4. At this time is there anything we can do to put our mind at ease, such as other EC options?Thank you in advance for your help and advice.

Pearl. My name is***** have a period tracker and I believe

Hi Pearl. My name is***** have a period tracker and I believe I started ovulation last Saturday. I just started getting back on the pill (Beyaz) on Sunday. I was off the pill for two years. I trust my partner and would like to have sex without a condom. The instructions say that since I started a week after my period I have to wait seven consecutive days to be fully protected. Some people are saying wait a whole month until I'm protected, and some say worry because I believe I'm ovulating, so those seven days (even witb perfect use) are out the window. I'm confused. Do you know if I'll be protected after seven consecutive days, even if I started mid-cycle?JA: The Doctor will need to help you with this. Anything else I can tell the Doctor before I connect you two?Customer: I'm 22 and in good health, I suppose.JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now.
