I don't know where to start or how...

I have a little boy that had a thriple organ transplant at 10 months old... Sex has been very painful for me since he was born, but that can be normal for a little while so wasn't all that worried about. Well, I was preggers again, but lost the baby March of 07. I did not go and get a d & C. i couuldn't do it.

And so since than sex is still painful and I have had discharge issues. A lot of discharge and not foul smelling, but not my smell... Ihave VERY normal periods and I don't cramp when its that time of the month... So this is where I am really starting to worry now. My last two periods have been VERY odd, I have been having BAD cramping, my discharge issue has gotten worse, having abnormal bowel movements this past month, my vaginal canal is swollen, and DH and I haven't had sex in little over two months and I'm always tired.

My life has been taking care of my son and his medical needs since he was born. I have bot seen a gyno or been to a check up since before my son was born. I know I need to go, but I have put my son ahead of everything else. A lot of the medications that my son is on has very nasty side effects that are so bad that he has to be treated as if he was getting chemo. I have not been doing what I need to to be keeping myself safe from those meds and he has CMV and EBV. I have no idea what all I have exposed myself to.

I don't have a doctor right now as we are right in the middle of relocating back home to the east coast. My son is getting his medical care, but I have no one here that can sit with him for me to even be able to go to the ER to get checked out... I can't be sick! I have to take care of my son and be there for him, but at the same time I know that I can't care for him if I'm not taking care of me...

Another new thing that has just started this past week, it I am finding bruises all over me!!! And I don't remember hitting anything. I have bruises on my butt just from sitting and on my thighs just from touching the side of the bed matress when I walk by.

I just need to know whats going on and get whatever medication I need to fix it so I can be there for my son...

  • You need to go to a doctor - your symptoms could be anything. If you don't have one, try going to planned parenthood - they can do gyn exams and if needed refer you to specialists. Plus, they are pretty quick at getting people an appointment and are less expensive.Good luck

  • I am very concerned about the symptoms you have described. I know a fair bit about pathophysiology and I think you should get to a doctor straight away. It sounds like you could have a systemic bacterial infection, which can be life threatening if left un-treated. I don't mean to frighten you but you should be examined. It is better to put your son through the stress of you having to wait in the ER for a few hours than for him to be sick with out you being able to support and care for him. Please see a doctor, bacterial infections, while easily contracted, only get worse (and quickly) without treatment.
