I do not have a yeast infection or bv, but i have similar symtoms;what could it be?

Patient

Q: I have been to three different doctors. I have been treated a couple times for a yeast infection and BV. I have been treated for a UTI as well if this information is important. I have taken pills prescribed by my doctor, a one day, a three day pill dosage and I have tried monistat. Sometimes symptoms went away for a couple of days after taking those medications and the monistat; but they returned. I have NEVER had sex, so it is not an STD. When I get pap-smears for this issue my gynecologist cannot get the spectrum in as far as she wants, but she usually gets a swab. I am wondering if this issue is relating to the horrible burning sensation I get during pap smears. It is almost unbearable. This has been going on for a year plus! Probiotics does not help, garlic supplements did not help and inserting garlic capsules into my vagina has caused burning. I have changed to cotton under wear, changed detergent, discontinued vitamins (to see if this caused it),stopped pantyliner for a while, went commando(no underwear), used sensitive skin body wash, and stopped washing my vagina with soap. I'm also really clean. I really do no think this is a yeast infection. Should I continue to insert garlic capsules for another two days to see if it helps? Please give me all your suggestions! If you suggest treatments, vitamins or medications I will discuss them with my doctor. I am open to anything.
