I need some advice please. For the past 1-1/2 months I have had continuous pelvic pain. The Gyno originally diagnosed me with a uterine/tubal infection. I took a round of antibiotics. I felt better for a week, but the symptoms returned. I went back and he said I still had infection. He did blood work (which showed no signs of infection or inflammation). He put me on Vibramycin 100mg. twice a day for two weeks plus 5 days of vaginal gel. The symptoms are still here. I can't do anything. I cramp, have vaginal pain, pelvic pressure, nausea, headaches, and back pain. I have also had a very low body temp. (95.5-96.5) until the last few days. Now it's going to 98.4-99.6. I called the office and now the he thinks it's hormonal. He wants me to use a saliva testing kit. Is this all in my head? Could it just be hormones? I had surgery for a prolapsed uterus and endometriosis about three years ago. Could this all be connected? My pelvic bone is sore. How does that relate to all this? I would greatly appreciate any advice. I have three young children and I've been too sick to do anything for over a month. I just want to feel better. Thanks!!!

  • No, I think you have the original infection all back again. Some times you need to stay on the antibiotics for 30 days to get rid of it. Focus on the infection and clearing it up.

  • Thank you so much for replying! I am going to an internist Thursday. I'm just going to get a physical, but I think I will mention all this to him and see what he thinks. I sure hope he can help. Thanks again!
