saw ur queries. The vaginal itching after cycles voild most probably be candidal infection. if it continues you need to take antifungals.

Was there a delay in this cycle ( from your usual) ?

weakly positive test, followed by a negative is unlikely to be pregnancy .. The spotting can be due to hormonal imbalance...

anemia, wt gain hypothyroidism, stress, change in food n excersise pattern can affect the cycle length and pattern...

Also get a in person speculum examination of the cervix to rule out local causes. regards

The Probable causes:

1) vaginitis, 2) hormonal imbalance

Investigations to be done:


Probable diagnosis:


hormonal imbalance

Treatment plan:

Antifungal suppositories if itching continues
