Brief Answer:
PELVIC INFECTION. FOLLOW THE ADVICE.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for additional information.

According to your information, it is more suggestive of pelvic or vaginal infection following medical abortion. Hormonal imbalance, stress, indigestion problem are relative underlying causes.

In this case, I suggest to take one course of antibiotic and IRON supplement to get rid off this problem. Anti-spasmodic medication like Drotaverine can be given to reduce abdominal pain. It should be taken with antacid like Ranitidine etc.

Take healthy diet and drink more water. Maintain genital hygiene properly. Kindly, procure complete prescription from your doctor.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and take care yourself.

Regards,
Dr S Patra

I m 15 and I have been having a weird odour coming from my vagina and some discharge, it is not painful and it does not burn when I urinate. It is not a yeast infection nor is it a water infection so I have come to the conclusion that it must be Bacterial Vaginosis. I am also not sexually active. I have taken medication that was prescribed by my doctor but it never worked so I decided to do some research. I found that inserting plain yogurt into your vagina and eating yogurt regularly helped cure it. Is this true?

Hello Dr, I am having a serious issue about being pregnant or having ovarian cancer. When I am ovulating, I always have pain on my right side. But lately I have been having pain on my left side and cannot sleep on my belly. I had my period on May 21, my DH and I got busy around my ovulation between May 31 and June 2. AF came back on the 14 very light for 2 days (not tampons or no pad but just wiping) and then light for 2 more days. I started with frequent urination very early (don't remember exactly when it started), had some cramps few days later, my boost are swollen (can see my veins now), having some side pains, pain in my uterus (hurt same spot as when I had my laparoscopy for fibroid and endometriosis) bloating, pelvic pain, back pain, tingling near belly button, tummy is hard, nausea, took several HPT test and all negative. Should I be concerned about ovarian cancer. Thank you kindly for your answer.

Hi I want to know if I have herpes
I have been fingered by 3 guys, all whom i presume did not have herpes (but I can't be sure). I am currently with my boyfriend, and he has had no previous sexual partners. We have had genital to genital contact and both have no symptoms of herpes and it has been 8 months since I was fingered by somebody other than my boyfriend. I get occassional itching in my pubic area, having had a yeast infection before, in other instances where i have noticed itching i have applied a hydrozole cream and it has gone away with a day or 2.

I ve recently been experiencing abdominal boosting/cramping not period related paired w/ a foul vaginal/ urine smell, there is no itching or burning or odd discharge . In the past I ve had persistent bacterial/ yeast infectios but these symptoms seem different. My husband has also recenty been experiencing tenderness/redness on his penis lasting over a week and this is worrisome. About a month ago we participated in a MFF threesome and we are concerned we may have caught an STD? HELP
