    Yellow Vaginal Discharge

It's watery when it first comes out but it dies to a paste.  I've been trying to figure out what it is and I just can't.  It doesn't itch or smell and I do not feel any uncomfort during sex.

    Genital Sores *picture*

    I was on a high dosage of prednisone when I started feeling some burning when I urinated. My vagina felt and was swollen to a point where even inserting a finger was painful.

    Thrush again and again!

    I too am a fellow sufferer. I was told by doctor that it is common and to just blast it with Canisten Pessaries etc. They do seem effective to some extent - especially the internal cream, but it just comes back like clockwork before my period making me think that it never really goes. I'm interested...

    I've been having sex every other day and I've started to get really sore after. I didn't notice until 4 days later that I have a sore on the lips of my vagina. It's not a bump. It's white and indented. I'm hoping it's from friction during sex because it looks like the sores I get in my mouth when I had...

    Can pre-cum cause thrush?
