Customer Question

I have had pain and pressure in vagina and lower stomach for over a week. Was tested for uti and was negative. Had internal and pelvic sonogram. also negative. Tried macrobid and did not help. Any other ideas of what this could be. Definitely feels like a uti. Could culture tests have missed something.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Very unlikely since you have also taken antibiotic course.

Your symptoms are likely due to the fall of the bladder from its original place.

This can occur in menopause due to the shrinking of the pelvic floor support.

Bladder prolapse is also likely.

Urologist should be consulted with.

Overactive bladder is another possibility.

This can be diagnosed by the urodynamic studies.

Medications like Oxybutynine can be used to control the symptoms.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
