Customer Question
Hi, I am a...

Hi, I am a college student and about three weeks ago I started getting a really strange, greenish-yellow discharge with some odor and itch in and around my vagina. At first I thought it was a yeast infection becuase when I would treat it with Monistat, the symptoms would lessen but now they just wont go away. I dont have much money and I dont know how much I would have to pay at a Planned Parenthood.

Doctor's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.

Okay

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? Are you in any pain?

No not really pain, just discomfort, about three weeks

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described of having strange, greenish-yellow discharge with some odor and itch in and around your vagina since last 3 weeks is most likely due to infection called bacterial vaginosis.It is caused by a combination of multiple bacteria.It is the most common vaginal infection.

This is different from yeast infection & using monistat have no role in treating this bacterial infection.

It is treatable with antibiotics prescribed by a health care provider.

So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor for the prescription of oral antibiotics accordingly. This will cure the infection completely.

Thank you.

Hope this helped
