  1. Hi there @Runzun. Have you had the chance to bring this up with your doctor? If not, we strongly encourage you to do so with any new/worsening symptoms. Vaginal Crohn's, while it is pretty rare, is something that can happen- it can cause infections, fistulas, ulcers, pain, etc. This article goes into greater detail regarding Vaginal Crohn's that I think might be helpful: https://inflammatoryboweldisease.net/living/vaginal-crohns/ Wishing you relief ahead. -Ashley (Team Member)

    1. Hey @Runzun. Did you manage to see or speak to a doctor? I frequently get thrush, ever since I had broad-spectrum antibiotics after my very first surgery in 2007! I hope it's something as simple as that!
