I am 51 years old. Been with the same man for over 30 years. Had a total hysterecomy at age 30 due to endometrosis.
About a month ago I started with some mild external itching. I am sensitive to dryer sheets and thought I might have accidentally added one to my undies when drying. After about a week I noticed burning AFTER I peed. And a heaviness in my lower pelvis. Thought it might be UTI so went to Urgent care....urine test neg. but Dr gave me Cipro. 3 days later full blown Yeast infection. Worst I've ever had. Went back to urgent care, had urine test, Dr asked a few questions and gave me 3 days of Diflucan (no exams either visit). Started feeling a lot better after second diflucan. Yes I took all 3. ;)
The last Diflucan was last Wed. On Friday I started having symptoms. I feel like I have to P all of the time. Like pressure and bloating in my pelvic area. And the mild itch is back. It's worse when I stand up and in the morning. Any ideas?
I eat yogurt everyday. Have no medicine changes. I'm perplexed and miserable!
I have an appt with a GYN but soonest I could get in is Friday.
