:confused:
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 and thick, 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. 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. 4 times, every few months. 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 rarely have sex.
Have Never douched.

PLEASE ANY IMPUT WILL HELP!!

  • Has anyone checked you for herpes simplex virus 1 and 2?? I am 50 years old went round and round for years with same symptoms, miscarriages, pelvic pain, exactly what your post says and was just told today after 18 years have the herpes antibodies. Have them do a blood test. They have brand new blood tests that detect the antibodies. They should have cultured me years ago in any case. Also, check the below items. Some of which I have. Also, you could have urinary tract infection (UTI) which causes lower ab pain, urethritis or interstititial cystistis. I also have urinary stenosis which is urinary strictures which is narrowing or scarring of the urinary tubes which can be caused from infections. Discuss with your ob or primary doctor who can refer you to a urologist. Also, bring up (PID) pelvic inflammtory disease, endometriosis with ob. I went to a fertility endocrinologist who also did a laporatomy through the belly button with a laser to look at insides. I had adhesions which were attached to my pelvic area that can stick your organs, bowels, etc. together and cause pelvic and bowel problems. I had (PCOS) polycystic ovarian syndrome probably caused from 37-90 day periods when cysts keep growing on ovary. They can burst and cause brown blood. A transvaginal ultrasond can detect these things. I, also, have (IBS) irritable bowel syndrome which a (GI-gastroenterologist) can check for. Not associated with urinary discharge but pelvic pain. You should discusss with your parents and have them read this. As I found out, all of my multiproblems were not only ob related but also, urinary and gi related.I am not trying to scare you but only trying to inform you of stuff I have gone thru and learned over the years that you may not be aware of. Do not be afraid to ask these questions and do not give up cause if these things are left untreated they can get more complicated. It sounds like your on the right track with all you have done. Maybe you could help me too.Be persistent, keep questioning, check other doctors, switch doctors and don't give up like I did even though I knew after reading, etc. I felt I had some of above. Some symptoms overlap. I did not have all symptoms. I wound up having miscarriages and never had any children. Take care of this when your young. Your lucky there's a lot more help and info out their today.Good luck and let me know what you find out. I totally empathize with you caused I've lived like this for years and back in the old days they looked at you like you were nuts. I'm also continuing my search. Write me back.

  • i am currently going through similiar things also. I dont have any STD's. But I do keep getting frequent yeast and vaginal infections and many of my symptoms are exactly what you are describing. Did they test you for yeast? I have never in my life had yeast infections until 2 months ago and now i cant seem to get rid of them so i know how frustrating it all is. I too am trying to get answers as to why it is happening and let me you i think doctors simply dont know. But i know there is a reason and i am determined to figure out what it is!

  • Hi, I am a male with symptoms (male symptoms) I have seen described as Candida infection. Ive had one sexual partner and she was prone to yeast infections (and "cysts"). The symptoms you are describing sound like the female symptoms I have heard of. Candida can apparently mutate into a fungal or yeast form (from its bacterial form) and become a systemic infection. If you weren't tested for these forms of infection then they likely will not show up. Some doctors don't seem to want to accept this as a possibility, my own (soon to be replaced) will not even test me for it - he says its a cyst and says he can just remove it even though I have other signs of candida (white tongue). I hope he's right but I am *****d off that he won't perform a test. Anyway I have tried a dietary method of eliminating candida in the intestine and it has definitely made an improvement. Unfortunately if the infection has gone into the blood then antibiotics are required which would require an open minded doctor apparently. Hope this helps.

  • Hi ~ :)I see you posted this a while back but I just now found out about this website / forum. Hopefully you have solved the problem(s) by now that you spoke of here, but just in case you haven't I have a suggestion. I was constantly getting UTI's (urinary tract infections) for a long time.:( In my case, they were mostly caused by stress combined with vaginal dryness. My vaginal walls have thinned over time and that causes bacteria in urine, or bacteria from intercourse, to seep through the thin vaginal lining, thus causing the frequent infections. I'd be put on antibiotics and sometimes get a yeast infection from the antibiotic. Cure one thing and get another - ugh! But at any rate, I finally found a FEMALE doctor that hit the nail on the head and had me start taking cranberry pills (anywhere from $4 to $8 a bottle). My stomach can't handle the cranberry juice but I can tolerate the pills. If you can drink the juice without stomach problems or getting IBS from it, then that's the best way to go. She also gave me an ointment, Premarin, which contains estrogen. I used it 3 times a week for 2 weeks, along with taking the cranberry pills. I noticed slight burning and slight cramping with the gel but I've read that's common in some women. I stopped using it and just kept taking the cranberry pills (3 times a day - one with every meal). The pills have helped me tremendously, and I have way less frequent UTI's. If I forget to take one or two a day, I can feel a very vague burning starting; it's reminder to take my pill. Byt the way, I tried the less expensive ones and they don't work as good. I've learned to spend the extra $2 for the better ones. You will see price differences amongst the different brands. I would suggest going to a female doctor since they understand a woman's body MUCH better than a male doctor. Ask her if your vaginal lining (or wall) is thinning. It's usually caused by getting older but there are cases in younger women too. Condoms seem to irritate you more if you have vaginal wall thinning but if you need to use them, make sure you and the condom are excessively lubricated (doc said Vasiline is not good to use). I was also told that the female on top during sex is a culprit too, because of the positioning. The pH balance in your vaginal area plays a big factor in getting infections too. The cranberry helps keep the balance quite well. There is also Acidopholus you can buy over the counter, which is rather reasonably priced. It's a chemical your body already produces but sometimes can be too low. You could take that along with the cranberry. You may also try eating yogurt at least once a day. Whatever your condition is, these three things cannot hurt you from what I understand. I had very little discharge but I did have a slight foul stench from my vaginal area. Once I got the cranberry pills built up in my system, the smell went away and so did the burning. I did everything the doctor said to do and it worked. Granted, I still get UTI's now and then but WAY less than I used to. You may want to skip the Premarin, but your doctor should be able to determine if you should take it or not. It's VERY expensive; I paid over $100 for one tube! Yikes!:eek: Well, I hope this helped you, or anyone else who has read this who may be experiencing similar symptoms. I went through several years of doctors not knowing what to do for it besides give me anitbiotics every time I got an infection. The female doctor I went to is all about prevention...getting to the root of the problem. Good Luck and Take care ;)

  • I wonder if condoms may have something to do with this. It sounds like irritation to me.

Hope this helps.Hi candida only spreads systemically if your immune system is severly impaired and a lot of people have white coatings on thier tongues that may or may not be related to candida I find when im working i dont have time to drink and become dehydrated i get a whitish tongue also if u drink too much coffee or are a smoker, candida albican represhents itself systemically (which means anywhere on the body not localised to one area)in people who are immuno suppressed usually for women in any crease of the body if its on the skin it just becomes red and inflamed for avrage immunity people, for immuno suppressed people its really bad i mean really really bad can even be inbetween fingers and toes.if u r really concerned see another doctor and be more assertive let them know its causing you mental distress. as for the first post could be anything relating to your bowels, vagina or even kidneys, could be multiple problems not related. obviously you have had tests they havnt found anything make a note of the tests and check on the net what they are to detect to rule out certain anatomy that could be the problem. as for vaginal secretions are normal and change throughout a monthly cycle, I personally dont require a sanitary towel but everyone is different. if it is thick and white try buying some canisten duo and see if that improves it if it doesnt it aint candida albican (thrush), also try changing your soap to simple as this wont cause as much irritation to the area such as other soaps keep talc and perfumes away from the area.Make a note of when the pain occurs in your cycle could be somthin as simple as ovulation pain, period pain, maybe you need to open your bowels, or it could be due to a urine infection have u been drinking enough is your urine clear, if its dark drink more to flush out any bacteria from your kidneys, if its tinted pink let ur doctor know, once you can establish when the pain happens then you may have more peace of mind. if its stomach intollerence to certain food you can rule this out by changin ur diet such as following an IBS diet, hope this is some comfort 4 u
