I had hysterectomy with cervix and ovaries removed 22years

HiI had hysterectomy with cervix and ovaries removed 22years ago - for about a year now I've found it far too painful to have intercourse with my husband. Bleeding would happen after sex also.then started with brown vaginal discharge ( not really any smell) went to GP who took swabs ( no infection) the discharge carried on but at time I'd had bowel surgery ... ileostomy , and total large bowel removal over the course of a year. My Stoma nurse suggested possibility of fistula ... this has since been ruled out so I've been referred to gynaecologist, who has felt a lump , also, in my vagina - preventing easy access to my vagina and change in colour in my vulvar area . Sent for MRI within 2 weeks and have now been called to go back to discuss results , about 7 weeks before my original planned appointment. My severe weight loss was also mentioned as a concern. My discharge is now thickish white and lots of and sometimes need to rush to toilet as it gushes out. I've been told they may have to put me to sleep to be able to get into my vagina to take swabs or biopsies as unable to do so as yet . I also have low back pain and pelvic pain and severe fatigue and feel very ill ??? Please any help . ( discharge not smelly)ThanxLea

What are all possible causes of the bleeding?

I am 49 years of age. With the exception of 4 viable

Good Morning, I am 49 years of age. With the exception of 4 viable pregnancies, I have had regular menstrual cycles (every 24 days) since age 13. Friday morning ,upon realization that I have been suffering from increasingly severe PMS symptoms for a seemingly unusual amount of time, I checked calendar to find that I have not menstruated since March 7. I thought most likely sudden onset menstruation but purchased a home pregnancy test nonetheless. Test was positive. Immediately following test, a friend of mine (physician/Cleve Clinic ) arranged for blood test. Result negative, <0.1 Hcg ...yet my areolas are very sore, stomach distended and I'm suffering from what I thought was severe indigestion (morning sickness) and I have missed two cycles. I do not believe my symptoms to be somatic, as pregnancy never crossed mind until Friday morning. Upon receiving news of Negative Blood HCG, I took second home test, negative result, as opposed yesterday's home preg test. Is it possible to be pregnant with HCG value of <0.01? Based upon my the regularity of my cycles, doesn't it seem to coincidental that I should miss 2 cycles, test positive on 99% accuracy rate home kit, and in hindsight, realize that all of my symptoms align with those of morning sickness? Thank you, ***** *****

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 have a few questions about PIDS: Pelvic Inflammatory

I have a few questions about PIDS: Pelvic Inflammatory DiseaseMy wife may have had chlamydia for an unknown amount of time.I definitely did and was treated in February.I *think* I was exposed in January. But I am not sure. It's possible I was exposed earlier - maybe as early as September.My wife tested negative for chlamydia in February.But in late December she was on antibiotics (doxycycline) for a week because of a cold. So it's possible I had chlamydia earlier and then she had it - but she cleared the infection in December from the antibiotics.So here's the important questions1. If she did have chlamydia and it turned into PIDS - would the antibiotics that cleared the chlamydia also clear the PIDS? Or would the PIDS remain and continue to get worse and worse?2. How is PIDS diagnosed? If she goes to a gynecologist what should they look for?

thank you. I've been having strange odors of late with my period, as the period is ending. I ending up having just a light spotting that ends up being clear, but the odor smells like a dead animal.JA: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?Customer: Not per se, but I would say this happened last year for a couple of months then stopped and has returned with the last two periods.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: I guess it's important to know I'm on Dilantin for seizures but have been on it for over 20 years. I'm on a vegatarian diet, and have been showing some menopausal signs. I'm 46.
