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

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am a 47 year old female. I do not normally dousch. I have been through the soap & tight fit clothing routine. This does not help either way. I have been with my husband for 25 years w no other sexual partners. I also doubt that it is a yeast infection. Seems more like it is BV.... no itching. Discharge has a grayish/green tint and definitely a distinctive odor. Seems to worsen with sexual intercoarse.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Stan, Doctor replied 1 year ago

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.

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.
