About 4 months ago I noticed that I started to have a yellow discharge that would drip whilst urinating. This discharge is of a stringy/gooey consistency (The best way to describe it, would to say it was similar to 'egg white', the difference being that it is yellow not white). It varies in amount throughout my menstrual cycle, with it some times being clear. I have researched that the clear gooey discharge, could be from ovulation - but not the yellow discharge. It does not generally have an odour whatsoever, sometimes it will turn white and smell similar to the discharge seen of thrush.
I also have stomach pains, most being at the bottom of my abdomen or on my right side under my rib. I constantly get headaches, feel sick and nauseous, have dizzy spells, my genital area is itchy, I did had pain whilst urinating - but this stopped after one of the courses of antibiotics I have been on, I suffer from bouts of diarrhea and constipation, I have also lost over 1.5 stone since May. (Roughly when this started). The past month or so I have had a very low sex drive, with difficulties in vaginal lubrication - Which has definitely not been a problem in the past. I constantly get blurred vision - with my right eye being worse than the other.
At first I thought it may have been thrush, so used the canesten duo (with the oral and cream), this did not work. Then I sought help from my doctor who prescribed me Metronidazole for a week. This did not stop it. So me partner and I visited the Sexual Health centre where we were tested for STIs. These tests showed that my partner had Non Specific Urethritis (NSU) - but nothing else was detected. (We have been tested twice and an STI is not the problem here) Due to the NSU we were both given azithromycin. Again this did not clear it.
I went back to the GUM clinic and they suspected it could be Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, so I was given an injection (I cannot remember the name of), Metronidazole and Doxycycline for two weeks.
After this I visited my doctor again who gave me Dalacin Cream for BV for the discarge and Mebeverine as it was thought that IBS could have been the cause of all my other symptoms. Again neither of these worked. I was also given trimethoprim - for a urine infection, this seemed to have stopped the pain when urinating.
Returning to the doctor I was given Balance Active pessaries to use for a week. At this visit I was given the results of my previous urine sample, which detected a random bug - which typically was resistant to all the antibiotics I had previously taken. I was given co amoxiclav in order to kill this.
The discharge is still there and I still have all the symptoms I previously described. I really am at a loose end as I don't have a clue what is wrong with me!
I wonder if it could be the pill I am on? Or from stopping the old pill I was on? I was originally taking Cerazette for about 3 - 4 months, but this made me bleed constantly and I was a bit of a monster on it! Then I switched to Loestrin for 2 months, but I had the same problems as this. I am now currently taking Microgynon again and have been for the past 6 - 7 months.
If anyone could help me with this it would be wonderful! I just want to be normal again!!
