I have been to the doctor 3 times now for yeast infections every time I ovulate. All of the symptoms are there (redness, itchiness, pain, discharge) but 2 of the 3 times I was tested, there was no yeast. The last time I went the doctor said I could possibly have herpes so I got tested for that and I got medication, just in case, well, it's not doing anything and the test came back negative. So, it's not herpes, and if it's not a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis (they tested for that too), what is it?!?! It has been going on for about a year, EVERY MONTH, very painful. Also, I got tested for Diabetes and I don't have it.

  • Check about Endomitriosis UTI's are very common and what makes me believe more is that this episodes as you said come at the same time as your period.

  • I know that this is going to sound strange, but please hear me out. I would like you to consider that you have Gluten Sensitivity. Gluten is the protein portion of wheat that causes inflammation in the digestive tract.This inflammation begins to damage the mucosal immunity that is housed in your digestive tract. The vagina, also being a mucous membrane, can become affected by this lack of immune system protection and you get vaginal infections.Also, get your vitamin D level checked as Vitamin D has a significant effect on the immune system.Kerri Knox, RNFunctional Medicine Practitioner

  • This could be thickening... I had the same problem. you can have a small punch biopsy to check for this. Even when you use yeast infection meds or creams it probably feels better. Have her put you on a steriod cream for 2 weeks and see if that helps and dont scratch.
