Vaginal Discomfort still not properly diagnosed - I need a solution!


Q: I've seen SEVEN doctors for my vaginal discomfort over the course of 6 months. I'm still in pain. 6 months of pain.

-Constant Vaginal Irritation
-Whiteish Yellowish discharge
-Constant feeling of having to pee

Doctor 1-
Diagnosis: UTI
Treatment: Antibiotics
Result: pain stopped briefly and then came back

Doctor 2-
Diagnosis: Yeast Infection
Treatment: Monistat 3 day ovules
Result: no help at all

Doctor 3-
Diagnosis: Yeast Infection
Treatment: Fluconazole 1 dose pill AND Terazol 3 day
Result: pain stopped briefly and then returned

Doctor 4-
Diagnosis: Bladder Infection
Treatment: Antibiotics
Result: pain stopped briefly, thought I might be cured!

Doctor 5-
Diagnosis: Yeast Infection
Treatment: Fluconazole 1 dose pill AND Miconazole 3 day Vaginal Creme
Result: pain lessened but still there

Doctor 6-
Diagnosis: Yeast Infection
Treatment: Fluconazole 1 dose pill
Result: pain is still there

Doctor 7-
Diagnosis: Bacterial Vaginosis (oh wow, this is new! maybe I got a real diagnosis this time and can actually go back to feeling normal and not crying myself to sleep at night!)
Treatment: Antibiotics
Result: pain STILL THERE

I was tested for STDs already, and all tests came back negative. I'm drinking cranberry juice daily and keeping clean. My medical insurance just ran out so there's no way I can afford to keep going to the Doctor, just to have them wrongly diagnose me or the treatment to not work. I need to know what I can do at home to make whatever this is go away.
