Did he have test?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The girl he cheated on me with had the test and her results were positive. She told him about her results. He then had to come clean about his affair since I was having a foul discharge and thought I had a yeast infection.

Did you have test of the discharge?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. I have been taking Azo for yeast infection thinking that's what I had but it wasn't working and I now know it's because of the trichonomas
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for all the information,

Azo will not help in yeast infection.

Over the counter monistat cream can help in yeast infection.
The symptoms from trichomoniasis can be frothy, yellow-green discharge.
There can be a strong odor.
Bacterial infection or bacterial vaginosis also causes bad smell & discharge.
Bacterial infection can occur due to imbalance of the normal bacterial flora of the vagina.
There can be overgrowth of normal bacterial flora of the vagina.
Decrease in the number of the normal lactobacilli in the vagina and increase in concentration of gardrenella bacteria causes the symptoms.
I would advise to consult your doctor to have a swab test to find out the exact cause.
Metronidazole or Clindamycin are usually prescribed to treat it.
I hope this information helps.
