I've had vaginal soreness and dryness since july that i just cant seem to get rid of. It is so painful that i simply cannot have sex. Sometimes its so bad that i have to call out of work. I was first treated for a yeast infection with monostat, and then diflucan. I was then treated for a bacterial infection with fluconazole and then metrogel. All of these treatments releived yeast/bacterial infection symptoms (odor, intense itch, discharge) but my vagina was always sore, obviously especially during sex. I then had an abnormal pap smear, which led to a colposcopy which led to a laser ablation of the cervix. Meanwhile, I was diagnosed with hemeroids, and told to treat them with a steroid cream/witch hazel/baths. The frequent bathing seems to have lead to a UTI, which i took a round of bactrim for. I am taking a low dose birth control pill called yaz
I've seen three different doctors for this, I've been tested for diabetes, I've changed my soap, my detergent, cut sugar and carbs in my diet, stopped drinking, tried probiotics, gone off my birth control, but nothing seems to help. I've been told that its nothing, that i need to use lubrication during sex (doesnt do anything), and that i just need more time to heal. Its been three months since i had the laser ablation, but i am still super sore and dry.
I am at my wits end. I'm really starting to believe i'm imagining this.
