Iv had a yeast infection for a long time now I finally went to the doctor but she didn't diagnose me she just said that it was a yeast infection (It itches,i have white discharge, swollen,and red) and i also have been throwing up on the first day of my period since i was like 16 years old. Now I am 19 i don't have bad cramps or anything, and she said she needed to get blood work ?
my question is what do all these symptoms mean ,I'm worried:(
what could it be? I just got blood work done Jan.4. 2011 they said if i don't get a call in a week everything is okay!
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Along with blood work-up you should also have considered getting a vaginal smear and culture test done to identify the infection causing agent to be able to treat it completely and prevent recurrence. Request your gynecologist for getting these done. Also, maintain good hygiene, keep the area dry. Avoid douching, use of harsh perfumes, or soap, and tight fitting undergarments. Use loose cotton ones and drink plenty of water.
