Hi all. I have not been diagnosed with CC and I apologise in advance for gatecrashing (for want of a better word) on this forum, but I am worried and I am seeking some reassurance from people in a similar situation.
Back in Feb I went to the GP with symptoms of bacterial infection (mainly an offensive smelling discharge). I had some swabs done and they came back neg for BV, Thrush, Chlamydia and Gonnorrea. I insisted something was not right and so was prescribed antibios, being told that perhaps it was BV and the swab hadn't detected it. The meds worked and the discharge cleared up. Four weeks later I got the same symptoms and so thinking it was BV, I got some gel from the pharmacy, which again cleared it up.
A few weeks ago I woke up with symptoms of cystitis, frequent urge to urinate, pain when urinating (burning sensation) and blood in my urine, as well as a bloody discharge (I haven't had a period since I got the implant in 2013). I had urine tests done which showed white blood cells and pus and so was precribed antibiotics but after a week the signs were still there. By then the urine culture test came back negative as did my swabs. My doctor did an internal and said my cervix was very inflamed and she thinks I might have ectropion of the cervix but she is referring me to a gyno for a second opinion. Since this 'diagnosis' my symptoms have largely disappeared (apart from the constipation) but I have felt bruised down there since the internal. Today I checked and found a lump near the entrance to my vagina (from researching and based on its location I am presuming it is a Bartholian Cyst?)
I am concerned that I have had all these symptoms and all the tests have been negative. I am wondering if they are all related or all seperate conditions. I am also concerned that both cases of the bacterial infection and then later the 'cystitis' occured within days of having sex, and like I said I do not have periods but I was bleeding within a day of my last encounter. Has anyone else experienced this. Should I be concerned? I know I shouldn't worry until I have seen the gyno but my appt hasn't come through yet and I need some reassurance.
Thanks in advance
