Customer Question
Just before each of...

Just before each of my periods for three months, I have ended up with an infection. I treated for a yeast infection which didn't clear and was told it was bacterial. I treated that and was good until my next period. That time, I was tested and was found to have urea plasma and yeast present. That was treated with an antibiotic followed by diflucan. It seemed to clear up and was feeling normal until last weekend, two days before my period, I am having discomfort and painful intercourse all over again. I'm not sure where to go from here or how many times my insurance will pay for labs. Is there any way hormones could be playing a role? I am 45, exercise regularly, take probiotics and eat well but feel a little 'off' at the moment.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you been keeping a personal medical record?

Yes

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Only that I have been under a bit of stress following my husband's heart attack earlier this year.

Well you need to get a repeat tests. Painful intercourse can signify an infection. Any other symptoms like discharge or foul odour?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

I do hope you can help me. My husband and l are trying to conceive. I used an ovulation digital monitor to detect my exact ovulation day and have been tracking my periods, which are very regular and follow a 28 day cycle. I had, what l believe to be, a mid cycle bleed 3 days after l ovulated. On day 1 it was very red, with one clot (enough to cover a pantry liner). On day 2 it was like a normal period. On day 3 it very light and only visible when wiping. On day 4 it stopped all together. Then on day 6 l had some brown discharge, very light. Since then I've had some light cramping on the right side of my abdomen, on and off for about 3 days (not painful just noticeable). I tested on the day of my period and got a negative and I'm now two days late and still showing as negative. Please help because I'm having all types of pregnancy symptoms like ligament stretching, hardened stomach and fuller breasts and no premenstrual symptoms. … read more
