Can you have a vaginal yeast infection if you have no uterus?

I had a hysterectomy over 30 years ago and I appear to have the symptoms of a yeast infection. I have a rash which itches really badly. I use bladder control products and I thought that the rash was from the wetness associated with urine. I also have the rash in the grooves of my upper legs outside of the vagina. Please help me find a product. I spoke with my pharmacist and she suggested clotrimazole. I've started it today. Any suggestions?

Vaginal bleeding while Nuvaring is still inserted?

I've been on the Nuvaring for about 7 months, and I haven't had any problems. The week I was scheduled to take the ring out, the week before I started bleeding. The ring was still in, and I don't understand why I started bleeding. It wasn't heavy, but steady. I took the ring out Thursday instead of Friday. It is now Monday afternoon, and I'm still bleeding, and passing some small clots. Does this happen, or should I be calling my doctor's office? I need some insight on this.
