I am a 27 year old female and I've had an unrelenting vaginal yeast infection for the last 4 years. I have no significant medical history which should be causing that. I have struggled with depression, but have never been formally treated. For the most part, the yeast has been asymptomatic, with the exception of discharge. It has been unbearably itchy when prescribed antifungals, and when I was on an antibiotic regimen. Otherwise, I just know it is there and it tastes foul (yeah, oral sex is out). I have been abstinent for fear of giving it to a partner. I don't want to live like this anymore. Doctors have prescribed everything and nothing has worked. They don't believe me when I say it hasn't gone away once in 4 years. A gynecologist told me "that's impossible." I wanted to tell her "I wish it was impossible!" I have also tried probiotics, yogurt, shoving garlic cloves up there, etc. Nothing has worked. I am sick of living like this. I would like to have a partner and children one day- I don't want to be an old maid with cats (well, dogs in my case).
