Ive only had one sexual partner (bf of 4 years) and for the past 6 months i have itchy labia, discharge and irregualar periods, gyno has done alot of tests and couldnt figure out what was causing it. All the itching has disappeared but this month, before i got my period i have a brown discharge starting 3 days beforehand. I then got a really weird period, i had a lot of blood in the morning and then by the end of the day it was all gone.. this lasted 4 days. after my period finished i still continued getting a light pink discharge, and still 2 weeks later i have it. Its a light pink discharge with no odor that i can detect. Im sick of going to the doctors and not getting a proper answer.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Were vaginal swab culture sensitivity tests done? Were the sugar levels tested for you (since you have family history of diabetes). Sugar forms excellent nutrition medium for organisms to thrive. If you are having diabetes, infections will be common and recurrent. The brown discharge and pink discharge could also be suggestive of infections. Hormonal tests done would identify if there are any hormonal derangements causing the irregularity of periods. Drink plenty of water. If infection is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment course. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area (vagina has its own mechanism of cleaning itself. Use of these products harms the normal bacteria of vagina and it becomes susceptible to infection). Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes (make sure your undergarments are washed properly and have no traces of detergent in them). Avoid use of excessive spices in food.
Take care.
