I have a white, thick,sour smelling discharge. I saw the gyn and she said she couldn't prescribe me medicine because she doesn't know what i have, since I'm a virgin and she can't examine me properly. So she said that i should wait for a while and return if it doesnt stop (because it can be normal discharge), and she would prescribe medicine based on just clues.I said I could wait,but it's bothering me So much! Scarlateen,can you give me a clue of what it can be and what medicine to take? Self medication can be a problem in this case? Thank you!

Not having been sexually active does not mean that you cannot be examined. Is there any way you can see another doctor? Taking medication without any diagnosis isn't wise, as it can actually make things worse instead of better.
