Boric acid therapy?
Posted on: 04/08/2008
Hello. I'm 23 and I have sex a few times a month with the same person. We use lubricated condoms and have both been tested for STD's. I have been diagnosed with a yeast infection before, but I'm not sure if I have one. I currently always have thick white pasty mucous or discharge inside my vagina. I hardly get discharge on my underwear. It only comes out when I go to the bathroom. It doesn't itch or smell like anything and it seems to get worse before my period. Is this normal? Sometimes I use a holistic boric acid therapy, is this safe? Thanks.
It COULD be a yeast infection, but this almost always itches. I am unfamiliar with the boric acid therapy so can't recommend that. If you are concerned, it might be worth seeing your family physician or gynecologist.
