Hello VP community. ^^ New poster here.
So, I've been have a couple problems with my reproductive system.. First and foremost, there's the YI problem, or what I've supposed is yeast. I've had this problem for months now.
I'll notice my discharge has tiny white clumps in it, and then my labias will go completely dry, start peeling, and get tiny lesions. Based on research, I assumed it was yeast. I changed my diet, wore loose clothing, the works. I would treat with apple cider vinegar and eat yogurt. This drove it away on multiple occasions, but it always comes back with the same symptoms. So, recently, I upped the ante and used hydrogen peroxide. It seemed to help… until last night when I revisited the problem, to find the discharge was full on cottage cheese. Seriously, what is going on here? 🙁 I really don't have any desire to visit my physician for something so trivial.
Secondly, and this ties into the first thing, I suspect I have endometriosis. I've asked my physician on multiple occasions for birth control, and when I finally convinced her the last time, she never actually put in an order for them.. either that, or my parents decided they weren't going to get them, hence the reason I've been trying to treat this alone.. It's really sad to be unable to trust your own physician to know what's best.
Any ideas of what this could be and how to treat it would be appreciated..
