I have been having repeated UTI with no growth in cultures.

I have been having repeated UTI with no growth in cultures. Mostly without pain just urgency. Yesterday i started with the uncomfortable back pain. UTI with no blood but ph and leukocytes. I was given a swab for BV. My question is this transmitted by sex? Does it cause bleeding after intercourse or is that more if the PID i should worry aboutJA: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse? It's hard to know for sure. The Gynecologist will figure it out.Customer: No recent injuries but i noticed in reading here that i have another symptom that i missed telling urgent care aboutJA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Just that i had a partial hysterectomy 10 years ago and that i have ITP

I live in NYC and take my birth control, Aviane at 8 pm

Hi! I live in NYC and take my birth control, Aviane at 8 pm everyday. A few days before my trip to Israel ( 7 hours ahead) I started taking my pills at 6:30 pm EST time (when I started a new pack) to make it easier to take there given the big time difference.I took my pill at 1:20 am in Israel to be on the same schedule back home. Is this correct? I want to make sure I'm within the 24 hour window of taking the pill.Thank you!!

I have been breastfeeding for 13 months. Around 8 months

I have been breastfeeding for 13 months. Around 8 months postpartum, I suddenly started to feel a lot of anxiety. I saw my OB and they prescribed Zoloft but I was scared to take it. Then shortly after I started to feel some strange symptoms I was told by several doctors they were due to hormonal imbalance/stress such as ocular migraines, blurry vision, light headedness, dizziness, nausea, heartburn, anxiety, skin crawling/jumpy feeling, heart racing, mood swings, rage, etc. I saw another OB Gyn and she prescribed progesterone 100mg pills and this has helped a LOT with most of the hormonal symptoms. However, the anxiety was still there because I have always been anxious, I have a phobia and being a stay at home mom is pretty stressful. So I just recently stopped the progesterone and started the 25mg zoloft. I don't like the idea of taking so many medications, plus I want to feel how I feel on just the zoloft alone and I am scared the progesterone will mask that. But I am also afraid I will never feel 100% because I need to control the hormones as well. So far I am not having terrible side effects on the zoloft, but I am worried my hormonal symptoms are coming back. I sometimes have some skin crawling/jumpy feeling and I am feeling more mood swings/rage than usual. Is it necessary to take the Zoloft and the progesterone together or will I eventually feel better when enough time has passed for the Zoloft to take effect?

My daughter had an abortion in December. She is having first

My daughter had an abortion in December. She is having first period since procedure and is worried because her flow is heavy with clots and bad cramping. I told her this is normal and unless she is soaking 3 or more pads in a hour she should t worry. But now I am worried my advice maybe wrong.She started taking her birth control pills right after the procedure. She is on Drospirenone and does not take the sugar pills. She is very concerned about how different this period is from before the abortion. Extreme cramping, sporadic and very heavy flow with some clots. I have explained this is normal and all but my concern is with the birth control medicine. Maybe this is not the right one at this time. She is afraid her doctor will be disappointed with her so she hasn't told her. I have encouraged her to speak with her doctor and that her doctor would be more upset that she hadn't trusted her with this important information. I mean a doctor can only do whats best for us if we are telling them everything. Do you have any info that I could use to reassure my daughter or if there is anything we should know about the pill she is taking? Thank you. Of course I am rating 5 stars. I just get side tracked easily from everything...ADHD:)

I have terrible pain very low in my pelvic area. It is very sharp and radiates into my rectum. The pain is enough to make me nauseated. Heat, advil, and tylenol don't help. What could it be? It is not my period. I do have an IUD. Standing makes it worse. Pressure makes it worse.
