Greetings, thank you for your question.

The answer is a general description of the problem you’re having. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with us.

Based on the above information, we understand your concern about the problem you’re having. For your information, having repetitive yeast infection is a serious condition as there could be a more serious underlying disease. Please consult a specialist of gynecology to further confirm the cause of this problem. Among underlying problem that might lead to continuous vaginal infections are:

  • Vaginal douching
  • Hormonal imbalances caused by estrogen and progesterones
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Immunodeficiency such as HIV

Regarding the pap smear, it is best that you understand a pap smear test is very safe and minimally invasive. Because you are sexually active, a pap smear test should not feel pain at all. Pap smear involves the procedure of inserting a narrow tube to then scraped a bit of your cell using a stick that looks like a large cotton bud. Therefore, it is highly suggested that you do perform the test if recommended by your doctor.
