I have light cramping and some discharge and occasional itching. It feels drippy on ocassion. I was diagnosed with ureaplasma twice. I took the antibotic doxycline as perscribed as did my boyfriend. Not sure what is going on with me now. After sex I have a crusty discharge that is brown in color. My doctor has not been helpful she just said you last tests were fine and I dont even know what she tested me for the last time. I have been trying to have a baby for 10 months I am worried about damage to my system. Could the crusty brown discharge be a breaking down of my wall. It wasnt near my period when this happened.

Doctor :   usually after sex, the mucosa usually breaks up
Doctor :   this mucosa along with the secretions from the uterus can cause such brown secretions
User :   So these secretions could be normal
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   definitely
User :   I guess i just freaked out for the having ureaplasma twice and from the infertility
Doctor :   that is fine, the antiiotics will clear the infection
Doctor :   ** antibiotics
Doctor :   doxycycline in your case
User :   The thing is a got it twice so it came back
User :   just worried this is not it coming back again
User :   I have had two positive tests and two negative
Doctor :   that is fine
User :   I guess I could call back the doctor and confirm my last labs on feb 3 included a ureaplasma test
Doctor :   can you mention, if u had a culture test
Doctor :   or a antibody test
User :   Okay
User :   My bf did cheat on me so I guess I am worried about getting ureaplasma again
User :   I dont even remember the symptoms
Doctor :   in that case, you need to use protection while having intercourse with him
User :   Yes
Doctor :   you should have a ultrasound test to check if there is any PID
User :   okay
Doctor :   this can rule out any other cause of your infertity, like ovarian cysts too
User :   Perfect
Doctor :   Once you have completed the course of antibiotics, all your infections will be cleared out
User :   I already completed the course and so did my bf I was just worried about reinfection
