I recently had a case of pinworm from my 5 year old

Customer Question

Hi, I recently had a case of pinworm from my 5 year old daughter. After 5 weeks of treatment I thought were gone until yesterday when I noticed a clear sticky mucous from my vagina, followed by white discharge and burning. Could this be a pinworm infection in my vagina?
JA: How long have you been dealing with the issue? Are you in any pain?
Customer: August 5th and no Altho I did develop a recent hemorroid from constipation from the the pinworms, and after taking 3 baths a day for two straight weeks due to the lanced (blot clot) hemorroid I'm wondering if it could be a yeast infection.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I am also traveling out of the country in two weeks so my OBGYN rerouted period wo I would not have it in India by extending my active birth control pills so I wonder if the increased estorgen is causing a yeast infection. I'm at a loss I've never has any health issues like this before and I've heard pinworm infections in the vagina are rare.

usually pinworms will not infect the vaginal canal

white discharge and burning can be from a vaginal yeast fungal infection

or from hormone changes

these are more likely than pinworms in the vaginal canal.

vaginal fungal infection can cause vaginal itching, mal-odor white itchy discharge.
