Your history suggests that you are not ovulating. One of the causes of this is PCOS and you could look through the archives to read more about this. The mainstay of treatment is the oral contraceptive, unless you are planning a pregnancy.
If you have an itchy white discharge this could be thrush. Herpes tends to cause painful blisters. Thrush can be treated with Canesten pessaries.
