I have had tests done on me blood cells in my wet mount such
I have had tests done on me for having white blood cells in my wet mount such as Tric, bv, and cervicitis. I have also been repeatedly test for gonorhea and chlamydia. All test are negative as of today, but still white blood cells are present. Over the past 8 months I have had either bv or cervicitis, and I ended with my last treatment of a insertable micronozole antibiotic about a month and a half ago. I have only recently been sexually active for about a month (after last bv treatment), and I use protection (non latex condoms) What could the underlying problem be?

I've recently learned that I have been exposed to chlamydia.
I've recently learned that I have been exposed to chlamydia. While at the walk-in clinic to obtain a urine test, the physician told me that because I have a Mirena IUD I will need to have the IUD removed and undergo a much longer treatment than someone without an IUD if I were to receive positive test results. After much pleading on my part she did give me 4 pills to take all at once.I had a previously scheduled gyno appointment the following day, during that visit he told me that my cervix looked very healthy. He also gave me a script for a new IUD as my period had returned after 2.5 years and lasted for 27 days. I forgot to ask about chlamydia and IUD removal.Today I have found out that I did test positive. My question is this, is the walk in clinic doctor correct when she says that I must have the Mirena removed before beginning treatment and that it will take much longer for me to be treated? This just seems like very dated information.

I bought an intensive probiotic supplement fiancé about 2.5
I bought an intensive probiotic supplement for my fiancé about 2.5 months ago. He had been having some digestive issues---gas, and irregularity---and this supplement really seemed to help him, right away! I'd been having a lot of flatulence around that time, too, so i decided to give it a shot...and I've been regretting it ever since.The product that I took boasted its, "high-potency formula," with, "30 billion...live cultures per capsule," and its ability to "re-establish digestive balance and support immune health," but, after 8 days of taking it, I knew I had caused a problem for myself, and I was immediately trying to find ways to fix it. I stopped taking the supplement on day 8, and since then I've tried everything. I changed my diet, I took acidophilus, I waited it out, I used monistat (which only made matters worse), and then finally, after 2 months, at my wits end, I went to the doctor. Upon identifying the agent as a bacterial overgrowth or infection of some kind, right off the bat, I was given Metronidazole Vaginal Gel, 0.75%. I was prescribed a 5-day regimen. It temporarily improved matters, but only very slightly, before things got worse. The odor became much stronger (very fishy and sour). I informed my healthcare provider, and rather than put me onto the oral antibiotics that she said she would if the gel didn't work, she referred me to another GYNO. Now I have to wait several more days before I can see this new individual, and I can only hope that they will take me seriously.Everything is different. Texture, consistency, amounts of discharge, and a constant burning sensation. The smell is horrible. Dead fish and other sour smells. I used to have a significant amount of yeast present at all times, but by scent alone I can tell that is entirely gone. Not a trace left. Only fish and dust/wet dust smell. Awful.The only thing I've found that would explain my symptoms would be Lactobacillosis, or Cytolytic Vaginosis. There is absolutely nothing out there online that suggests any successful treatments, or successful approaches by doctors, or offers any potential hope for recovery and a return to normalcy. This is unbearable. It is affecting my everyday life, and it is affecting my soon-to-be-marriage (as of 3 months from now). Please help me.Tests came back from my primary doctor - high presence of lactobacillus in my urine (50,000-75,000, as opposed to ZERO in all tests prior, over many years)...if I cannot get taken seriously by this next doctor I am seeing on Monday, I don't know what I'll do! Is there any chance that I will be taken seriously with this? Can I actually hope to have some kind of remedy presented to me?Awaiting some kind of miracle here,Michelle
