Re: Multiple symptoms - worried

If you want specialist, appropriate care, go to a specialist clinic. Most GPs aren't equipped to deal with emergencies like yours - but a good one will spot that things are URGENT and tell youto get to a sexual health clinic, or, if your pain is really severe (especially as you have Right sided lowe...

Re: Care after BV

Get an accurate diagnosis by getting the discharge tested & looked at under a microscope at your local sexual health clinic (http://www.bashh.org/BASHH/Clinics/clinics.aspx). If your GP has tried a couple of treatments which haven't worked, this is the only way to make sure you get the appropria...

Re: Multiple symptoms - worried

As your symptoms have come on recently, and particularly as you've had abnormal bleeding, lower abdo pain and painful sex - which I assume wasn't a problem before - you certainly won't be wasting the time of your local sexual health clinic (http://www.sxt.org.uk/service?step=4de2a9fbe170366719000004...

Re: pco

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is NOT specifically linked to pelvic pain. About one in ten women have PCOS, with the condition running in families, some women being more obviously affected (acne, hirsutism, obesity) than others who may be normal body size or slim & just have irregular period...

Re: Female Mortality Rate

The Maternal Mortality Rate is highest in those countries where obstetric care is poorest and women are valued least. Currently these countries perform worst: Somalia, DRCongo, Sudan, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Tanzania, Afghanistan. See: http://www.savethechildren.org/site/c.8rKLIXM...

Re: Vagifem pessaries

At the time you first received your advice from the GP, the Vagifem pessary dose was 25micrograms of estrogen - although most gynaecologists reckoned that this was safe to take lifelong, it wasn't officially passed for this use. Now the dose has decreased to 10micrograms per pessary, Vagifem can off...

Re: Chronic Pelvic pain

A tubo-ovarian abscess (TOA) is nowadays very rare and is the most severe form of chronic PID / pelvic infection usually resulting from either poorly treated or repeated re-infection - it's critically important that your partner should have been tested & treated to make sure that they don't have...

Re: Womb abration and the menopause

As you've had an endometrial ablation but still get slight 2 day spotting bleeds - i.e. you've had removal of most but not absolutely all of the womb lining - you probably won't get the irregular & variably heavier bleeds that some women get in the run up to menopause. So you can reasonably expe...

Re: Torn skin on entrance of vagina and white discharge

The discharge & blood staining could simply be due to a small internal laceration after the friction of intercourse - this will heal naturally by itself in a few days. But the foul smell is more likely to be an infection - bacterial vaginosis (which is a change in the balance of normal gems) or ...
