Expert Q & A Answers About vaginal itching
I have a problem with chronic yeast infections. It seems that 7 out of every 10 sexual encounters lands me with a yeast infection. Whenever I go to a doctor, I get tested for yeast, bacteria, gonorrhea and chlamydia… the diagnosis is sometimes yeast infection and sometimes bacterial vaginosis. What else could be causing my problem? Do you have any ideas to keep my yeast infections at bay? What STDs and health issues can cause vaginal itching?
The last time I had sexual contact with anyone was about 7 months ago. I've never had sexual intercourse; however, I have performed oral sex and had it performed on me (without a dental dam).
