Customer Question
Can vaginal tearing be...

Can vaginal tearing be associated with spironolactone?

Doctor's Assistant: The Gynecologist will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Gynecologist can help you best.

I was started on spironolactone several months ago for acne mainly effecting my back and thought to be stress and androgen excess related. For last month I have treated myself twice for a yeast infection because I had itching and burning but no actual discharge. Today I noticed I have tears in the external region with burning

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else the Gynecologist should be aware of?

No im married and have not been sexual active in the last month so i dont think that is a cause

Doctor's Assistant: Our top Gynecologist is ready to take your case. Just pay the $5 fully refundable deposit and I'll fill the Gynecologist in on everything we've discussed. You can go back and forth with the Gynecologist until you're 100% satisfied. We guarantee it.

Hello,

spironolactone has no influence on the vaginal flora, so it cannot cause symptoms like that. More likely it has an infectious reason, so please contact your OB/GYN for a smear examination, treatment then depends on the result.

Hope you get well soon, kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
