i've posted here a couple times having to due with my ongoing dilemma of vaginal discomfort. for years, i have had constant maddening itching, burning, white discharge, very ACIDIC taste (almost like lemon juice). i've been tested for everything under the sun, and have never gotten any answers. i've been treated, and have treated myself, for yeast infections countless times, and have NEVER gotten any relief whatsoever,not even temporarily, from the treatments i've tried. i have tried monistat, diflucan, yogurt/strong strong acidophilus supplements by mouth and topically, boric acid, apple cider vinegar, goldenseal, strict anti-yeast diets, etc.
i've pretty much given up on sex, and any sort of intimate relationship at all. considering it just causes lotsa irritation each time, i taste gross, and there's lots of white discharge.. having sex just makes me so self concious and disgusted with myself that i just feel like shit afterward. this has ruined one or two relationships for me completely, just because of the way it's affected my mind. i hate my vagina with a passion. i wish every day that there was some way i could just get the thing removed completely, and not have to deal with this hell anymore. it's constantly uncomfortable and driving me insane, therefore always on my mind.
i just read something on cytolytic vaginosis ( http://www.virginia.edu/studenthealth/Cytolytic%20Vaginosis.pdf ), which, i guess, is an overgrowth of GOOD bacteria. i had never heard of it before, but reading up on it, it sounds like it might fit. i am going to get to the doctor as soon as possible and try to figure out what the hell is going on with me.
do you guys know much about this? or have any other ideas for me? i'm losing it, really.
