I started having sex for the first time in 2017 when my boyfriend visited for a few days, (we met online and are long distance and he’s visited me four times now, each time has been days or weeks long ), and a few weeks after he visited I got a classic yeast infection. Every symptom was clear, and it was my first one, I didn’t go to the doctor and self diagnosed and got Monistat. It cleared up and I thought that was over. I’ve gotten a yeast infection every time my boyfriend visits, it starts to develop weeks after though. The third time I got the infection was in June, after he visited all of May, and I decided this time I’d go to planned parenthood since my symptoms weren’t clear, I just had strange discharge and it smelled different, not horrible but just not how I usually smell. They tested me and said it’s a yeast infection, they gave me a pill, fluconazole, and it didn’t work, I then bought 3 day Monistat which worked after a week, and I was at my boyfriends house visiting him during the treatment. After the treatment was over I had sex with him, and this time it was unprotected because I started birth control (which I recently stopped), so I don’t think condoms cause my infections. Currently I have symptoms again of a yeast infection, just strange discharge (it’s not cottage cheese like) and different smell and very light, occasional itching. My question is, Does anyone have any advice? I try to clean up right after sex, I shower, and try everything to stay dry after, I’ve switched condoms and last time we had sex I didn’t even use a condom, but I still get them. I have a lot of stress and I eat horribly, but I never got them until I started being sexually active.
