I'm new to this community. I found it in pursuit of trying to figure out what's wrong with me!
3 weeks ago, I experienced horrible vaginal swelling, burning and stinging, and smelly, mucus like discharge, and really really painful intercourse (dryness and extreme burning).
I called my doctor, but she was not able to see me until the week after. She suggested intake an OTC yeast infection treatment. This did not feel like a yeast infection, but I too it anyways. I took the canestan oral with 1 tablet and cream. I waited 3 days and the symptoms got better but painful intercourse and burning were still present. Finally I got to see her and she did tests for a few stds and bacterial vaginosis. I suffered another week only to find out all tests were negative. She called me back in, did another bacterial vaginosis swab and another std test wich already came back negative (I've been with the same partner for 4 years). This time she suggests Monistat 3. I was horrible on me, and now made my symptoms worse. So I'm back I square one. She refuses to give me antibiotics for BV because "they're exspensive" yet I'm wasting money on trying to treat a yeast infection that I don't have. Now waiting on the BV swab again, she tells me to try "prevegyne" which I could not find at any store near me. So I was recommended to try purfem wich is a little different.
I have never been so frustrated in my life! I don't know what's wrong with me and I was wondering is maybe someone has experienced something similar.
Thank you in advance!
