vaginal soreness

Is there any cream that can help ? Should I feel sore all the time ?

You need to know what's causing it before trying to treat it.

Yes I know but I cannot find out what is causing it been to doctors they blamed trush in the past but cannot be that all the time?

You need a referral to Gynae then, there are various treatments available but without knowing the cause you may make things worse.

Ask your GP for something like this: vagifem.com/faq

Maybe postpone your examintion for a week or two till it's working, then the scrmmaging around your yoni might be less painfull.

Something to ask about at the appointment then, for when you next need to go.

I saw a good female doctor who suggested this after she made me cry, so I know it helps. I went on to use oral HRT which has been marvellous for me, so maybe ask about that, too. There are bio-identical HRTs with progesterone gel & oestrogen tablets which are systemically better, though I have a preference for a synthetic brand I tried first.

Hi I had really bad symptoms and was told by chemist probably thrush and to use Canestan . I was then advised by a lady it might be bacterial vaginosis so went to my gp who dismissed it immediately as she said there was no smell. However I insisted she took a swab and it was bv which antibiotics cleared - 6 months later it’s back so I will have to be retested again.

Thank you for this . The strange is thing is the swabs come back with nothing other than normal . I am so upset I didn't take appointment today as have to wait until end of week but this is life. My dr said it could be BV but with clear swabs I don't get how it could be ? No idea what it is want a second look for different doctors . Best wishes
