My ex was the first guy I ever had sex with, and we would normally do it multiple times a day, maybe 3-4 days a week. After a couple of months I got a horrible, horrible YI, huge amounts of discharge, itchiness, aching, raw, dry skin, small tears (which STUNG) etc. I treated it with an OTC treatment (Canesten Duo), but it still didn't go away until my period. Then a week into my new pill pack, it happened again. This went on for about 5-6 months, always a week into my new pill pack, I would start getting YI symptoms which refused to go away until my period. Luckily after the 5-6 months this seemed to stop, but then my boyfriend and I were having sex a little less often, about 3-4 times a week.
Anyway, a few months ago we split up and I started seeing another guy, and having lots of sex. And the YIs seem to have come back, however they are much milder. I'm not even sure this is what it is that's happening, but I cant think of another explanation. I feel like I'm producing much more discharge than necessary, and its of a creamy, white texture, occasionally lumpy, and sometimes yellowish. However I have very little itching, if at all, and no other symptoms.
The reason I am sure it isn't just normal discharge is because I tasted it, and it tastes VILE. Sometimes I think I have had constant odd symptoms for so long, that I wouldn't know regular vaginal discharge if it slapped me in the face, but I remember what I used to taste like before I started seeing anyone and it was definitely much milder than this! Even though the symptoms aren't bothering me that much, I really want to get rid of this because I am aware of how disgusting it tastes, extremely bitter is the best way I can describe it, and therefore I am paranoid about letting new boyfriend give me oral, despite the fact I enjoy it.
Hopefully someone can give some advice and help me out.... :)
