Customer Question

I had sex with my boyfriend and felt deeper pelvic pain. The next day I had slight cramps and felt almost flu like. The next day after that (yesterday) i started spotting (I got my period 2 weeks ago and it was longer than normal, about 8 days). My cramps have not gotten better and im still spotting. I also still have flu like symptoms, headache, tired, achey, diarrhea. About 2 weeks ago I thought i might have a yeast infection because i was experiencing itchiness and dryness down there but i had no discharge and the itchiness went away after a couple days so i never went in. Do you think this could be a yeast infection still or anything at all?

If it doesnt improve or lingers on, chlamydial infection should also be ruled out.

In short following causes should be ruled out;
