Infections
I've heard ladies on this site talking of symptoms that you say could be possible infections. some of these symptoms have gone on for like a year or so - is that possible? Can an infection stay for that long and what type of damage can it do to the parts that it's coming from?

Infections, if untreated, will persist. Vaginal infections like thrush don't usually cause any damage, but pelvic infections can cause infertility.
