Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms are suggestive of a condition called pelvic inflammatory disease. This most commonly results from infection of the pelvic organs. You may need culture/microscopy of discharge and an ultrasonography of pelvic region to confirm the diagnosis.

A course of antibiotics along with some other medications should relieve your problems. The fever and pain can be relieved by taking Tablet Ibuprofen 400 mg twice daily with meals. You would need antibiotics like metronidazole, doxycycline and ceftriaxone. However, I would suggest that you consult a gynaecologist who can examine you thoroughly and prescribe appropriate therapy.

Polycystic ovarian disease is a condition characterised by the formation of multiple cysts in the ovaries. It is the most common cause of infertility in women. Other symptoms include weight gain, acne, excessive facial hair, irregular periods and insulin resistance. Treatment usually involves drugs like metformin, oral contraceptive pills and other medications depending upon the symptoms of the patient and whether she wants to conceive it or not.

Wishing you all the best.

I hope I have answered your query.

I'm nervous as to having exams and swabs done as I never had anything like that If it is a infection and my GP failed to help me on tuesday is it likely long term damage has been done as it has been going on for a while well since September at least,

Thanks for you followup query.

I understand your nervousness.

The symptoms of yours are pointing strongly to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. This needs proper evaluation and treatment.

PID occurs when genital infection remains untreated/partially treated and keeps on involving pelvic organs. PID may cause complication later if it remains partially treated or untreated.

PID does not mean that a long term damage has been caused. It is treatable.

I again strongly recommend for check up by Gynecologist.

For the time being, you can take antipyretics as suggested to you in my earlier reply.

I hope your query is answered. please accept my reply if you have no more followup queries.

Wish you speedy recovery.

With regards.
Dr Rohit Batra
