    Hi,

    Basically it's been about 1 and a half months since my last period, and i've been getting a lot of white thick discharge instead. I know i'm not pregnant cos i'm a virgin, my diet hasn't changed and i'm definitely not stressed. Whilst reading through some medical books, i did find some stuff on yeast infections - however i don't have a white build up on my tongue, and i don't think yeast infections would cause me to miss my period. Up till now my i've had a regular cycle.

    I have an appointment to see my GP but it's not till 3 weeks time.

    any ideas?

    thanks

    There's oral thrush and vaginal thrush, you can get them separately. It's not a case of if you have one, you'll get the other. I've never had it myself but I've heard it's makes everything incredibly itchy and uncomfortable.

    You could give NHS direct a call to put your mind at ease, but I really wouldn't have thought it was anything to worry about from what you've said

    Yeah if it were thrush you'd probably know about it by now because most women complain of the itch before they notice discharge. If you can't get to see your GP anytime soon, why not go to your local gum clinic? They are specialist in all things ladybits (men too) and it doesnt have to be something sexually related for you to see them. They often run drop in clinics too so you don't even have to make an appointment.
    I'd recommend you go get it checked out. Good luck

    White discharge often means your about to get your period soon. Some women have this, if your still in your teens its likely your periods are irregular so it should come soon. Stress can delay periods as well as other things. Dont worry. Yeast infections usually cause discomfort so i don't think you have one and also that wouldnt stop your period. x

    3 weeks to see a GP? Where do you live. They have an obligation to see you within 48 hours. Change GP or go to a walk in GUM clinic. You will get treated better there.
