Hi there, I'm a 21 year old female, I have been in a monogomous relationship for a year, and have used condoms. I trust my partner and we have both been to the clinic, I had bloods done for HIV and Sphyillis back in April and was negative, we have both recently been tested for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea and all negative. It all started when i was working back in September and I think stress caused me to have a uti, they prescribed me amoxocillian to begin with, which gave me thrush; they then prescribed me the right stuff to clear up my uti and thrush treatment, i went to have tests done and everything was clear apart from a little BV showing up, they could not prescribe me anything as it was not certain. The treatment for thrush didnt work so i went back and had another lot of tests done, this time no BV but i still had the yeast. She then gave me 7 days worth of Fluconozole (thrush oral tablet), i was getting better so I decided to stop using condoms and get the copper IUD fitted about 3 weeks ago, all is fine so far, but about a week into my IUD i started showing symptoms of thick yellow discharge, swelling, a little smelly not loads, and itching - even my anus itches there is no pain during urination or during sex, just discomfort but no pain.
I went back to see a doctor at the GUM clinic (in the USA this is similar to a contraceptive and sexual health clinc). She did all the tests for thrush, Trichomonas and BV - and NOTHING! I have no sores, no warts ( I do have a history of warts and my partner got warts frozen off in the Summer- but if I remember rightly warts do not cause these symptoms).
No stds, no infections - so what is wrong
I feel like banging my head against a wall, I have been back and forth to the doctors and clinic, and tests after tests. The doctor said nothing has shown up but to put your mind at ease I will give you a course of BV tablets and 1 thrush tablet. I am half way through my BV course and I will take my thrush tablet at the end. I'm still having the symptoms though, and my partner has no symptoms by the way.
I have never been one to wear thongs, douche etc my normal routine is wash with mild soap which now i dont wash with nothing but water! I wipe front to back, wear loose cotton knickers, soap without scents or glycerin, no more tampons; I have been wearing panty liners the first week because i was spotting from the IUD, I also take lysine vitamins but I have been doing so since March time.
I am going to finish my tablets, but I'm also going to buy some PH sticks to see what my level is and I will update on here.
I've seen some forums about CV which is something that mimics thrush and it is where you vagina actually creates too much lactobacilli, but I have not been tested for this.
Please can someone help me
