What you're describing sounds very typical of vaginal candidiasis, which is a fungal infection of the vagina and it is also one of the commonest causes of discharges in females. It is nothing to be embarrassed about and it is also very easy to treat. There are tablets available for which you will need a script or even a pessary(tablet to be inserted vaginally). They both work very well. If you're looking for over the counter, you could ask for pharamacist for Canex V, or Gynaezol cream which you insert twice a day till it clears up. You should however consider seeing you family doctor for confirmation.

Sweetie, sorry to tell you this, but you *have* to see your gyane about this. Not going, is a stupid thing to do. You should *never* mess with your health. You have a baby to think of! Anyway, your gynae did vaginal exams when you were pregnant &  sees at least 20 vayjay''s a day.
