Hi
Since the end of September I have had 3 sexual partners. Two of these were completely protected (condom and the birth control pill). Another was a guy who put the condom on before ejaculation but was in me without it before that, and after. There was no pregnancy risk, but I am worried. For about a year now I have gotten yeast infections alot. I've seen doctors about it, gotten medication, etc. Sometimes it seems they come for a day, leave, come again a few weeks later. I've been working on getting rid of them. However, just today the discharge has changed. It's not normal from my cycle or anything I get with a yeast infection. It is white and sticky. I have a full physical scheduled with my doctor in about a week but I'm so worried it's an STD. I just got over Mono, so I've been tired and achey, sweaty, but I thought these may just be symtomps of the stress my body was under as the doctor told me I probably would'nt be feeling myself until christmas. There is no burning while urinating or any discharge other than clear or white. What could this be, so I could give my doctor a heads up.. and should I try and get to the doctor before then? I'm just really scared it's HIV or Chlamydia or something... plse help

When you were diagnosed with the yeast infections, did the doctors not do a pelvic, pap and STI screening?

A slight change in discharge is really nothing to get all excited about, especially when it's not abnormal in general, and you're not having any other symptoms.

I would keep an eye on it and mention it to your doc when you see him/her in a week.

As for recurrent yeast infections, have you seen a gynecologist or are you seeing a general practitioner? If you're not seeing a GYN yet, you may want to ask for a referral. There are MANY things you need to look at (bath and menstrual products, diet, etc) to see where this is coming from ... I would ask for a whole appointment dedicated to just this one problem.
