Hi so for a...

Hi so for a couple of days now my vaginia has been a little itchy and by the opening of my vaginia it hurts to touch but I don’t think it’s herpes because it’s been like 3 days and I have no bumb. It doesn’t hurt to pee and there is no smell but there is weird discharge

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you dealt with the discharge? Have you experienced this in the past?

Not long but I also have the iud and only had it for months so depending I sometimes get brown discharge for the iud

Doctor's Assistant: When was your last pap test or pelvic exam? Any irregular results from past exams?

Actually, from your description, it sounds like that you may have developed a yeast infection, the presence of itching and the white colored discharge is characteristic of a yeast infection. It can sometimes even cause pain in the vagina as well. Usually, a yeast infection can be easily treated with the help of simple OTC products which can be applied directly to the vagina such as Monistat-7. Monistat can be used for a period of 7 days which should help in ridding you of the infection. If the Monistat does not help then you could be started on oral fluconazole which can be taken just once to eliminate the infection.

But I would suggest that you start with the OTC Monistat which should be enough to resolve the problem.

Do you have any more questions?

Can I just ask how would I know if I had herpes if I had herpes wouldn’t I have had gotten bumbs and blisters by now I have had discomfort for the past 3 days
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Muneeb Ali, Doctor replied 4 months ago

Yes, you would have had blisters or bumps within 2-3 days of experiencing any sort of discomfort in the region. The absence of a rash of any sort does indicate that this is unlikely to be herpes. Also, herpes usually does not cause a white colored discharge.
