I have been having lower abdominal discomfort, burning and mild itching for the past three years. It seems like I have got a urine infection but tests came clear. I also seem to have slight vaginal discharge. My GP referred me to a gynae and he could not find anything wrong, vaginal swab and urine test came normal. I asked about AV and he did a blood test for oestrogen and this cave normal and he said I have not got AV. Everything seems quite healthy down there except I keep suffering from this burning sensation and discomfort. I keep going to my GP and she said I have got AV and prescribed me Ovestin cream which I used last year & did not help, I was having hot flushes and sore breasts. Today I went to see her again as this burning sensation was driving me crazy. She prescribed the cream again, I do not know whether it will help or should I give it another go.
I was also surprised that I had blood in my urine and suffered two urine infections without me knowing. Although I suffer from burning sensation, it does not burn when I pass urine and I have got a good flow. She also treated me for thrush with no effect. In the end she took a swab and it came negative although the nurse said she could see thick white dischage up. I have come to the conclusion the slight discharge I suffer does not mean I have thrush. Looking at the symptoms of AV, it does seem I have got it. Now who do I believe the consultant or my GP. The consultant did quite a few tests like ultra sound and probing my vagina with something I cannt remember what it was last year. Strange when I was on holiday for three weeks, no symptoms, it only bothers me when I am idle and watching TV. I am also concerned I might suffer with urine infection without me knowing due to this burning sensation. Aftet two lots of antibiotics for urine infections and cream for thrush, I am still the same. Thanks
