Do you have any vaginal pain or burning?
When was your last period?
no pain or burning but some itching
my last period was on the 15th of august
ok so you are not due for period yet.
itching and brown discharge can be from infection.
Yeast infection is common following sexual activity.
Also bacterial vaginosis is possible
This is due to the overgrowth of the normal vaginal flora.
Not considered sexually transmitted infection.
Since you used condoms, STds are unlikely.
But, there is no harm getting checked for that.
is there any treatment i need?
So, you should see your GP for a clinical evaluation since symptoms are present after a week.
yes for yeast infection, fluconazole one tablet or clotrimazole vaginal cream
for bacterial vaginosis, metronidazole vaginal cream or tablets.
can i get that over the counter?
Clotrimazole vaginal cream or miconazole vaginal cream is over the counter.
should i consult my GP before getting and cream for it?
I will suggest so.
okay, thank you for your help
