Question: Vaginal discomfort
|Concerned Boyfriend - Mon Sep 12, 2005 12:34 am||
My gf told me that her vaginal area is mildly discomforting, mild discomfort during intercourse. Mild burning sensations when urinating but no irregular discharging or blood, except throughout the day finds white, sticky particles on the inside of her undergarments and pants coming from her vagina. And also has an odor but is not fishy smelling like yeast infection. Any ideas to what all this adds up to?

Hi Concerned Boyfriend,
Signs and symptoms of a vaginal yeast infections are painful intercourse, a discharge that is white, cottage cheese like in appearance, burning discomfort/pain, itching, etc.
A fishy odor would indicate the presence of another type of infection. A yeast infection does have an odor present. There are of course over the counter preparations for this type of infection but I would suggest that she have an evaluation by her physician to assure that this is the problem.
