I am 18, i have had unprotected sex in the last month. I have missed my period for 2 months now, although i get white discharge. I took a pregnancy test which was negative and I have no symptoms of pregnancy.. however I do get slight stomach cramps. I have an uncomfortable itch from time to time. I also bled last time i had sex.. which never happens. Could an STI be the cause of all of this?
Welcome to the forum and I am glad to help you out. Your concern is regarding the white discharge from vagina and itchy vagina. Apart from candidiasis one possibility that needs to be evaluated is trichomoniasis. Candidiasis is caused by the overgrowth of yeast-like fungi called Candida.
The characteristic symptom of trichomoniasis infection is a heavy, frothy, fishy-smelling discharge from the vagina. The infection can also cause discomfort during sex, vaginal itching, pain when passing urine and occasionally stomach pains.
Diagnosis can be confirmed only after pelvic examination and swab samples of the discharge and cervix swabs.
Treatment depends on the same. So please consult a gynecologist and get yourself evaluated. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
