Female Genital Problems and Injuries - Check Your Symptoms
Call a doctor if:
- You have lower belly or pelvic pain, fever, and unusual vaginal discharge.
- You have pain or bleeding during or after sex, and a lubricant does not help.
- Your vaginal discharge smells bad or does not look normal.
- You think you have a yeast infection but are not sure.
- You know you have a yeast infection, and nonprescription medicine does not clear it up in 3 or 4 days.
- You think you may have a sexually transmitted infection. Your sex partner(s) may need to be treated too.
- You get yeast infections often and are not taking antibiotics. This can be a sign of diabetes or other problems.
- You are or may be pregnant and have symptoms of a vaginal infection (pain, redness, itching, smelly discharge).
- You have symptoms of a urinary tract infection (pain or burning, frequent urge to urinate).
- Your vagina is dry and irritated, and a lubricant does not help.
If you plan to see a doctor, do not douche, use vaginal creams, or have sex for 48 hours before your appointment.
