Ok, about eight weeks ago, I was brought in the obgyn to "discuss" a nuva ring. I also thought I might be getting a yeast infection. He confirmed "a little yeast traces" and gave me Trazol cream for 3 days. In the same visit, he shoved the nuva ring up me and it hurt for just a second or so but he was definitely struggling.He also took it right back at as this was just a demo. I went home, started the 3 day cream and within 2 days, I was bleeding, fresh blood, not mentrual, slimy, and smelled bad! I went back to the obgyn, and they confirmed I was bleeding from my cervix......nobody said so but I feel there was damage done when he put the nuva ring in. They said no big deal and sent me home. I was still bleeding a week later and it was very irritating to my vagina like a yeast infection and still smelt bad! I was using tampons for three weeks to mask the smell. They also gave me a 3 pill/7 days diflucan since it was irritating to me. After a week, I went back again to the obgyn and they took several cultures, no clamydia, negative microplasma/uroplasma (sp?), but they gave me metrogel and told me to wait a few days. In the mean time, I started to feel that sensation in my vagina of a uti, so they tested for that and put me on macrobid which I took for 24 hrs., they told me the urine was fine and to stop the macrobid and go ahead with the metrogel. I then went and visited my old obgyn to get his opinion. I was beyond stressed to the max, anxiety through the roof and crying all the time. Not eating, not sleeping, etc. He did his own cultures as well for clamydia, micro/uroplasma(sp?) everything negative. Although, a day before seeing him, I was not getting anymore blood. He did say my cervix looked very vascular and inflammed, so go ahead with the metrogel. I did that for 5 days which created abdominal cramping and that stopped. I felt okay for 24 hrs. being off of that and then.......that uti sensation again. Not having to go frequently, but that sensation down there that is just awful and you can't ignore! They did a urine sample, said there was blood(but could be from cervix still) and white blood cells. They sent it out for a culture and put me on bactrim which I was on for 5 days and made me terribly ill! They finally admitted that they lost my urine and it was never sent. They switched me to Cipro which I was on for two days and continued discomfort sensation in my vagina along with the pelvic cramping continued. They had me stop and 24 hrs. come in for another urine specimen. They said more blood and more white blood cells. They sent out again for culture.......and advised me to continue the cipro which I did for another 3 days.....then they called and said, stop all antibiotics, there is no bacteria what so ever!?!?!?!?! I stopped and they gave me the pyridum for a few days. I have since stopped the pyridium on Monday morning and the cramping has stopped since also. MY GP wanted to see me though to treat my anxiety as I have been crawling out of my skin thinking I'm dying and just can't shake this discomfort down there. They decided to do their own urine specimen too which came back fine, no blood, no nothing.....still have discomfort. Havent had sex in about 8 weeks due to these issues which just spirled out of control. I don't eat barely anything, but bread, oatmeal, yogurt. I drink only water. I have noticed that due to these issues and my stress I walk around with all my muscles down there tensed up! I don't even realize I'm doing it. Prior to this all, I was healthy, had a great sex life, ate anything I wanted, and drank anything too including caffine daily, soda, and a glass of wine or two almost every other day. Nothing ever bothered me before. Can you help try to determine what may have happened to me during all of this? Is my muscle tension and stress causing that almost urethral sensation......I guess you would call it. I do have to wait 6 weeks to meet with a urologist who might do a cystoscopy but I'm worried that'll cause more damage too. I was perfectly fine before.......I am a 28 year olf female. What happened in this crazy sequence of events and how can I help myself get better???
During this, I missed my period while taking the Bactrim, which I finally got the other day, but it was two weeks late.
Also, this does not wake me up at night, it is not painfull, just very discomforting, it has never hurt or burned to urinate either.
PLEASE HELP ME!!!
