Customer Question
Hello, I seem to constantly...
Hello, I seem to constantly have infections. I've had a few cases of candidiasis in the last 6 months to a year and now again I have green discharge, only about 6 weeks after the last bout of candida. I don't know whats going on! Can you help me to get rid of this for good and what do you suggest I do? I did my smear in August and all was normal.

Actually, we do not treat your or diagnose you here.

We answer specific questions.

What I am thinking is that your question is: why do I get infections, what can I do to find out?

Correct?

Thank you.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 10 months ago

Are you in some relationship ? How has it been ? Have you been getting along well ? Have your husband received any treatment every time you had an infection in the past?

Any history of unprotected intercourse with someone you didnt know much about?

I feel better already! Thank 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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
