I'm a 17 year old female, I've been having weird things going on with no explanation. The outer part of my vagina feels irritated, with slight itching, and at times a little sore, without having sexual intercourse. After sexual intercourse it itches and has a moderate burning sensation that lasts for a few days. My discharge also changes, at times I think its normal but sometimes it seems too white or bright yellow/greenish, and sometimes too watery. I don't know if its normal for a woman to constantly have secretions, but I have to always wear panty-liners, or put toilet paper in my underwear because of the constant wetness, almost like water. I also have pelvic pain, or lower abdominal pain (specifically near the ovaries) almost everyday. I have had 3 ultrasounds done, and have been tested for gonnorhea/chlamydia, candidas, bacterial vaginosis, etc. No one can find out whats going on. Does anyone have ANY ideas of what could be going on? or what I should do.. or what to ask my doctor?? I'm clueless.

ALSO I'm not pregnant, and I do not regularly have sex.
(long distance relationship) Every 3-6 months I see my partner
So that crosses out latex allergy. This has been going on
for a long time, I can't take it anymore. PLEASE someone
any advice, or imput is very much appreciated.

  • Doesn't have to be anything dangerous. Seems to me like thrush or candida, but you said that it was negative. This happen because of slight changes in the woman's vaginal acidity (or pH).The normal healthy bacteria that live in a woman's vagina are called 'Lactobacilli'. Lactobacilli need an 'acidic' environment to survive. Fungal infections, such as thrush, require a more 'alkaline' environment to thrive. Thrush only becomes a problem if it overgrows to the extent that the vagina feels very itchy, sore, red and inflamed. Then treatments may be recommended. Certain conditions encourage an alkaline environment in the vagina and thrush to flourish, such as taking antibiotics, stress, not sleeping well, a poor diet, and possibly zink and iron deficiencies, vaginal deodorants and powders, hot weather and wearing synthetic underwear, gym leggings, tights or stockings, taking the contraceptive pill, pregnancy etc

  • Difficult to suggest what it could be. But to have so many disturbing symptoms is not normal. Vaginal discharge vary with the menstrual cycle. At the middle of the cycle usually more mucus is produced and the mucus is thinner.Pain, itching and abnormal vaginal discharge may indicate inflammation of vagina (vaginitis), which may be due to an infection. Have you visited your gynecologist?

  • Be sure to be seen by a Gynecologist and not just your family doctor. Anytime you notice an unusual change such as this it's your body sending a signal that something is wrong.As indicated by another response you received, you need to be seen by a Gynecologist and tested for additional STD's that you didn't mention such as herpes know as HSV-2, HPV and syphilis. A complete STD check should be done to eliminate them and many doctors only test for some. Your local health dept. tests for all and if you test positive they'll provide you with medicine for free. You should be retested for vaginal yeast. In the mean time be sure to eliminate the possibility of an allergy. Many people can suddenly become allergic to things they were not allergic to before and sometimes it's the sexual partner himself that is the problem. You can try wearing 100% cotton panties, eliminating tight moisture promoting things like pantyhose and switch to thigh highs. Eating yogurt is said to fight against the yeast causing fungus and checking your birth control method as well may help. The pill and condoms can cause problems, you can talk to your Gyn and possibly switch to something different and if your not using a condom then it could be your partner that is causing the problem. Many men wash their hands after using the restroom, but few wash them beforehand and everything they've touched comes in direct contact with their member if they don't wash their hands prior to urinating. Then they come in contact with women and then the problems for women begin. A Gyne once told me that 90% of female problems are the direct result of their male partner. If all else fails and he's not a condom wearer, be sure he washes before letting him near you. Lastly, don't take no for an answer. Even if the doctors tell you there's nothing wrong and you know that the discharge isn't normal for you, keeping checking all the possibilities for allergies as I indicated, because I also once had a female doctor tell me that constant discharge is normal and I knew it wasn't for me! It made me wonder if she had something wrong and didn't know it because I've never had a discharge except when something is wrong and vaginal itching is never normal. It can be something as simple as dryness which isn't the case for you, but it's never normal. It all depends on what's normal for you as far as discharge goes though. I wish you the best and hope you find the solution to your problem as soon as possible. I know how uncomfortable and even painful a problem there can be.

I second that emotion, however, the free county STD clinics do not give the blood test for herpes for some unknown reason. Yes, she needs to forge on and get a pap for hpv and the blood test for herpes. What about the dudes getting a STD screening too. They might test positive for it...certainly a green discharge is sign of a disease and it needs a proper diagnosis. If it continues after all of the blood work/pap is negative, I would move to alternative treatments, such as acupuncture, but your boyfriend will just give it back to you...
