Last night I had unprotected sex with someone I had just met. I woke up to go toilet and it was painful to pee. I then noticed an open sore on my vagina. Like flesh looking sore. I have been looking online to see what it could be from and I am at a dead end.
I am a 35 year old male. Married. With a 3 year old. My wife
Hi. I am a 35 year old male. Married. With a 3 year old. My wife (35 as well) has a strong history of yeast infections dating back to college. She is 10 weeks pregnant now and is showing signs of vaginal discharge and discomfort. Her blood work from her primary care physician showed all normal red and white blood cell counts. He ph balance at her latest ob visit this week was normal. But the discharge this week contained no yeast or odor. The PA sent the test out for STD testing. My question is two parts: does her discharge and discomfort sound like something like chlyamidia or gonorrhea? And two, would it be possible for me to have been a carrier of these std's without knowing, and NOT pass the std on to my spouse for a number of years? She was negative for all of these before the birth of our first child 3 years ago. So could I have been positive, not passed it onto her prior to our first child, but then pass it onto her during the past 3 years. I have Denver displayed any signs of an STD, however, I have never been tested personally. Thank you so much! Waiting for these tests back is making us both very nervous and she's already started asking about infidelity.

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
