Hi.. i hear that a large majority of people get a yeast infection/bladder infection at least once in their life time.. but I seem to have some sort of infection that won't go away. I'm only 17, and I had a bladder infection that i had to take 2 rounds of antibiotics to get rid of, and a yeast infection that came back in a month. I sleep with no panties, I don't wash my vagina with soap, I dont use anything perfumed at all near my genitals, I have recently been trying to eat healthier but it is difficult when most of my surroundings eat unhealthily. I used to have intense stinging and itching inside my vagina. My doctor said I had a yeast infection and gave me the one pill injested orally treatment and it went away, but came back in a month. My doctor prescribed me the same pill and it seemed as if the condition just got worse. I have been taking acidophilus and folic acid tablets twice a day and i no longer have stinging in my vagina, but i still can't have sex for that long before it starts to hurt. I usually wake up in the morning feeling fine then by the end of the day at school my vagina feels enflamed and the only thing i want to do is take a hot bath to soothe it. I have also been tested for STD'S many, many times that all came back negative. My symptoms seem to keep changing, and i know there are many conditions that could be the cause of this, but my doctor isn't listening to me or helping me at all. It stings when I pee when i'm on my period, and before I started taking the acidophilus tablets I had severe lower back pains and diahrea and constipation. I have thought of and researched the many causes for my symptoms (Bacterial vaginosis, endometriosis, cystitis, vulvar vestibulis) but I don't know what it could be. I have no idea what to do. I think my mother and doctor think it is all in my head. I am so frustrated and I don't know who to talk to, I am only seventeen, this shouldn't be happening to me. Tonight it seems that i am urinating overly frequently. I always feel a heavy pressure on my bladder. I also ahve been drinking a large glass of cranberry juice every day and it isn't seeming to help. There must be an underlying problem that is causing all these symptoms for me, and I don't know who to talk to, the only person I know to talk to about thsi is my doctor and most often she just doesn't listen to me and rushes me out of her office. It is so frustrating, and I am in a long term relationship with someone who i love very much and I can't imagine being sexually dysfunctional at only 17( I have been tested three times since I have been with him and all came back negative ). I'm sorry for all the typing, but I desperately hope that there is someone out there who can give me answers. I want to be healthy, I want to have a normal sex life. I believe that most of my symptoms point to endometreosis, but im not sure, all i know about these conditions is from what I have read off the internet, PLEASEE HELP MEEEEE!!!:(:(Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
