  • Im pretty sure it wont go away on its on, and those infections can get really bad. You could try looking up online to see if there is an alternative to the med though

  • No it wont go away on it's own, but I think the only complications it would cause by not treating it would be if you are pregnant. If you can handle the symptoms, then don't treat it. Ultimately it is up to you, and it is your body. Do what you feel is right.

  • Take your medicine and it will go away, but after some time the infection does come back it is just like the cold/flu/allergies they really never go away.

    It will come back? meaning I will have it forever? How would I have got this? I have been with the same man for 5 years, and I dont douce. Any insight please ladies. The doctor I seen was not speaking very good English for me.
