UTI/Yeast Symptoms With No Positive Diagnosis?
Hi there,
I had the Mirena IUD inserted 3 months ago. For over a month now, I have had many unpleasant things going on down there. First, I have had non-stop bleeding of sorts. It is brownish, and is barely enough to get on my underwear, but is always present. Second, I have been incredibly itchy just inside the opening to my vagina. Third, I have had UTI-like symptoms. The interesting thing is every 5 days or so, I get INCREDIBLY itchy (cannot be helped with Calmoseptene or Vagisil), and about an hour in, it begins to transition to UTI-symptoms. Have to pee every 10 minutes, feels like bladder is never empty, and painful. 4 hours later or so, all of the symptoms disappear, and I'm left with the slight itchyness, bleeding, and sometimes the tiniest bit of discomfort when peeing.

I am very prone to yeast infections and UTIs. I can say, this is much itchier than a normal yeast infection, and the UTI going away and then coming back is not a normal behavior.

I have been to my OB-GYN now multiple times. We did treat for a slight yeast infection with two Diflucan pills, but I saw no change in symptoms. Upon my last visit, they tested me for a UTI, a yeast infection, BV, pregnancy, and TSH levels. Some blood was in my urine, but otherwise everything else came back fine. They also looked to check the position of the IUD. The string is not where is should be, but an ultrasound confirmed that everything was in place. They started me on a low estrogen birth control to try to regulate the bleeding starting one week ago.

It's driving me nuts that they can't find what's wrong. I have not had sex in weeks (same partner for 3 years), I am not douching, going without underwear to bed, and wearing tampons and not wearing tampons (tried both scenarios). I'm hoping to find some answers here.

Here are some of the things that I have guessed. 1. String is lost up in my cervix and is cutting me...therefore causing bleeding. 2. I have a mild UTI. 3. The Mild UTI and the bleeding is leading to a change in my PH and causing the irritation and itchyness.

What are your thoughts?

Thank you so much,
-Mary
