Since November, I've had a yeast infection that is not going away, as well as periods of thick yellow discharge and vaginal pain. I've tested negative for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and HIV. I've also had an abnormal pap smear with a followup colposcopy that turned up nothing out of the ordinary. I'm so frustrated, this is really starting to affect my life. I've bought all new cotton underwear and washed it in hot water. I've been to the doctor three times and been treated with diflucan, a double dose the second time. I've used Monistat 7 as directed by the doctor. Each time I finish a treatment, I can tell the yeast infection is coming back, and sure enough, it does. The doctor even looked at the yeast under a microscope to verify that's what it was. She did mention that my white blood cell count was high, as if I was fighting an infection. She prescribed a round of antibiotics followed by the Monistat 7.

My allergies have been extremely bad this year, can that cause a yeast infection? I'm also run down all the time and thirsty, and generally just don't feel well. I'm wondering if I should be tested for Diabetes. Has anyone experienced this?
