In the past month or more I have noted an increased amount of discharge, some of it quite white and chunky. I have no other symptoms, and didn't smell much, so I assumed this was just a natural change relating to me getting off HBC for the first time in almost 5 years. I have had a period in the midst of these symptoms.
Fast forward to my GYNO/STI exam. The doctor seems to take issue with the discharge she saw, and I ended up testing positive for yeast and gardnerella. She prescribed me Flagyl for a week, and then if that doesn't work, a pill for a YI.
My question is: I'm not so into taking unnecessary medicines, and nothing about these symptoms really bother me. Is there a risk if I just leave it all alone? Also, could there be any risk to the female bodied person I'm having sex with right now?
