i am 37 years old and have had 2 yeast infections in my entire life time..i've had 1 full term pregnancy and 1 miscarriage..for a whle now i've been experiencing itching, discharge and painful sex..i had STI testing done last Oct and all came back clear and had a pap smear done with my physical done just this Feb and have heard nothing back on those results..i don't have LOTS of sex like i did back when i was in my teens and 20's..infact since i turned 30 sex just hasn't really been that important to me..i try not to scratch that area as it causes that delicate skin to bleed(like a scrape does)..i keep myself clean and actually switched from the typical body washes/shower gels that i use to Vagisil..i use both the wipes and the wash to keep that area and the rest of me clean..i do have 2 sexual partners(both of whom are clean but 1 is going to get retested to make sure) and neither have had any problems..i do not use proctection with either of them except my birth control..i WAS diagnosed with HPV in 2010, had a polyp removed via colposcopy and all has been fine since..i've made an appt with my family doc tomorrow so i hope this isn't anything more than just a yeast infection and nothing worse..what are the chances that this could be something worse?
