Hi Polly
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

You probably have an infection of genitals.If you are approaching menopause , this could be dryness too.I advise you to visit your Gynecologist and get examined to detect the exact cause of infection.Proper antibiotics or topical antifungal cream can treat your infection.If it is due to menopause , its good for you to start hormone replacement therapy.If this a very longstanding problem you definitely need Gynecologist's evaluation.

Take care.

I have a l4-5 bulging disk. I have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis. I had two spinal epidurals. The first one worked and the second one did not. The second one caused vaginal bleeding. I had an ultrasound and everything was clear. I had cramps and bad sciatica with the bleeding. I am a breast cancer survivor and was on tomaxifen. Could endometrosis cause sciatica? My periods have been Been severe since my completion of tomaxifen. My ob/yn says my bleeding issues are a result of perimenopause and my vagianl ultrasound have been clear. I Am I crazy for trying to link the two problems?

During the last fortnight, my dr. has prescribed magnesium and alpha lipoic for migraines and biotin for dry and split nails. Now my pee smells like i eat brussel sprouts 24 hours a day.
