hi,
i've been experiencing painful symptoms for the last few months. I have strange heavy yellowy white discharge that can be either watery or sticky, and have itching around and inside the vagina. It is also too painful to have penetrative sex, and the pain begins from the moment of penetration. Sex makes the discharge much worse.
I have had the same partner for 2 years and we have both had 2 clean STI checks since these symptoms began. I have been treated twice for thrush but it hasn't made any difference. The last time I went to the clinic the doctor said i have cervicitus, he believed from thrush, and he said that since there was no STI there it couldn't be anything else. I have since seen my GP who also suggested thrush and gave more of the same medication.
Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
Do you think it would be worth going to see a specialist?
Thanks for your help.

In either case, treatment with oral Flagyl (metronidazole) is usually effective.If the doc won't assess you further see a GYN.Best,John<
