iud infection? yeast? uti?

I have had a couple uti's and a couple yeast infections in the past. Not currently sexually active.   I have had a Paraguard iud for about a year with pretty minimal problems.  I am also a medical professional who used to assist a female wellness Dr.

A couple weeks ago I had very mild pain that lead me to suspect a UTI so I drink more water and took Canberry supplements.  I had also been noticing the same abnormal discharge I experienced with a yeast infections in the past, so used monistat.  Discharge returned to normal.

Now, a few days after, I'm experiencing some pain that feels like period cramping in my uterus...but different.  I am out of the country right now and concerned that whatever bacteria or fungus that I chased away has made its way up to my IUD. With problems like this in the past I've been pretty good at determining what's going on and I'm certain that this pain (although mild) is different that anything I've experienced before.

Hello,
If you are having pelvic pain, possibilities of Endometriosis, PCOS, Infection of pelvic organs and benign and malignant pathologies of uterus need to be explored.

You should consult a gynecologist and get an ultrasound uterus and a pelvic examination done.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
