Hi there. So this started about a month ago. I woke up one morning with symptoms of a yeast infection. I was heading out of town that morning so I used a monastat 1. It burned a lot but it took the itchiness away and gave me some relief. Then about a week later I tried having sex with my boyfriend. I got this really weird burning sensation, like my vagina was on fire. I then then went back to the doc twice and they gave me the prescription for a yeast infection. I took two of those pills and still had a burning sensation. I went back again and they did a pap, stds and a yeast swab. Everything came back negative. My boyfriend also went in to get tested for stds-negative. I was prescribed this cream that I put on times a day, which seems to help a bit but I still cant have sex with my boyfriend without it burning. I'm thinking it might be the monastat that burned me. I have read that its so potent that some women have a reaction to it. I'm wondering if I'm just waiting for my vagina to heal or there is something more going on.. If anyone knows anything, that would be great. Thanks

Sara

Sara - I feel your pain, literally. I haven't been able to get any answers for my burning pain and significant increase in white discharge. Doctors checked for everything (yeast, bact vaginitis/vaginosis, STDs) ALL negative. This started to happen all of sudden, and continued for 3 mos now. Doctors took samples for lab. They say everything is normal. I know it is not. I'm 38, and know my body. My symptoms are not normal. I've even tried treating myself - took the monistat, didnt work (of course, because it is not a yeast inf). Took flagyl (i have had bact vaginitis before), nope. Septra for general bacteria...nope. None of that worked, and the Drs. continue to say it is normal. It is so uncomfortable I cry. Esp the amount of daily disch throughout the day. I've never had this before....continuing for 3 mo! I know i am not being properly diagnosed, and I don't know what to do about it. I research and research online, and always find the same potential things it could be....but Drs tell me it's normal/neg...and those meds that they said "let's try anyway" didnt work. I'm so frustrated.
Does any Gyn specialist have any other explanations?

I have the exact same problem and it's been going on for a couple of days. It only happens in the mornings and goes away during the day. I haven't been so see a professional but I have been researching and I think it's called Vulvodynia.
