Hi doctor,

I am 20 years old. I am sexually inactive for a year now. I am having some issues with my body parts. I had a film around my clitoris that came back often after washing it. In the past few days, I have been experiencing yeast infection symptoms. So today I got an over-the-counter medication for it. I inserted the tablet and it is being only for 12 hours. When I went to the washroom white fluid came pouring out. I have never got treated for yeast infection before. So, I was just wondering if that was normal. My current medication is only birth control pill. Please explain me.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You may experience some vaginal discharge mixed whitish fluid which can be candidial infection and also some amount of dissolved medication.
  • I suggest you to wash yourself with alkaline vaginal wash and then re-insert the tablet at night again and continue for at least six nights. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with their consent.
