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.
