Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

cancer would be unlikely at your age.

Dr. David :

I am a cancer doctor

Dr. David :

bad vaginal thrush fungal infections can also cause bleeding.

Dr. David :

you might need stronger prescription antifungal treatments if your Canesten is not working which is clotrimazole

Dr. David :

which is an over the counter antifungal cream

Dr. David :

how many days have you used the canesten?

Dr. David :

yes, you can have bleeding with bad vaginal fungal infections.

Dr. David :

if you have been using it for 6 days so far and it is not getting better, you should see a gyn doctor and get an evaluation

Dr. David :

you might need stronger prescription antifungal treatments

Dr. David :

you could also have a bacterial vaginosis infection going on as well.

Dr. David :

you need a gyn examination.

Dr. David :

the fungal infection can inflame and irritate the walls of the vaginal canal and cervix

Dr. David :

and this is why you can have bleeding.

Dr. David :

does this make sense?

Dr. David :

do you have other questions?

Dr. David :

bad fungal vaginal infections can irritate the vaginal walls and inflame the cervix and vaginal walls.

Dr. David :

this is why you can have bleeding in your vaginal discharge.

Dr. David :

are you there?

Dr. David :

do you have other questions?

Dr. David :

unlikely to be cervical cancer.

Dr. David :

but you still need to see a gyn doctor and get a gyn examination and pap smear once your vaginal fungal infect is clear.

Dr. David :

the pap smear is needed after the fungal infection has cleared.

Dr. David :

but you should see a gyn doctor now because of the bad fungal infection.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions

Dr. David :

if done for now, please leave +++ positive feedback below my reponse.
