TLDR: persistent Itchy/sensitive/burning pain around clitoral region despite negative test and being tested anyway for BV, yeast, and UTI
long post but would REALLY appreciare feedback. About a month ago I noticed a slight discomfort around my clitoral/urethral area and thought I had a UTI coming. Went into an urgent care and tested negative, provider recommended I hydrate, take some cranberry pills, and maybe put a little fungal cream around the area for possible yeast infection (?)
4-5 days later I had a v painful urination episode and went back to test for UTI. It was negative but there was trace amounts of blood in the urine so I was prescribed Macrobid.
Finished the course and still felt the sensitivity. At its worse I sometimes do have a referred kinda bladder pain. I wouldn’t say peeing is necessarily a huge aggravating factor. The area is just sensitive all the time. It almost feels like I wore tight high waisted pants with a rough seam that aggravated the area. Hopefully this is a relatable experience haha.
Anyway, had a urine test done again, but this time also requested a vaginal exam. Urine came back negative, slightly more trace amount of blood. The PA who did my vaginal exam said that my cervix looked irritated and they did see a bit of discharge. They had me picked up the one time antibiotic for BV and yeast cream & had me start the yeast cream while I waited for my results.
I did notice some improvement of the referred bladder pain with the yeast cream, but still that superficial itchy/sensitive/sharp sensation. My results came and they were all negative, but I was advised to finish the course of cream and take the BV pill.
After all this, I feel the sensation still and I do feel it’s starting to worsen again. I have been wearing loose clothing, breathable to no underwear, avoiding sex, and having good hygiene. I plan to try and make an appointment with a GYN but I’m just bothered by this and anxious 😦
