Was the staph cultured from both the urine and the vagina?
What are your symptoms? Thanks.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It was cultured but I do not have any symptoms except very painful and heavy menstrual flow, with blood clots.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes it was cultured from both urine and vaginal swab.
Expert:  Dr. Norm S. replied 1 year ago.
Staph infection in the urine is abnormal and needs to be treated. Usually the best antibiotic is found by sensitivity testing.
Staph infection in the vagina usually does not need treatment. It has nothing to do with your painful and heavy periods.
Painful and heavy periods are often best treated with birth control pills. That will resolve painful, heavy periods most of the time. If that is not successful, and no specific cause is found, then hysterectomy might be needed.
