Hi. Well just over a week ago i had my period. And i noticed that it smelt a little more than usual, doesn t normally really smell at all.. Anyway, since i ve finished my period, my vagina has had a different smell to it. It is not very pleasant and it never used to smell... What could be the cause of this? I have been drinking more alcohol than usual if that means anything but other than that my diet hasn t really changed. Could it be something to do with my new sexual partner? Could his penis make me smell this way?

Every month after my periods get over, I get this strong scratchy feeling in my vagina or vulvas. Assuming it to be caused due to unhygienic problem, I have started washing myself during showers with bath soap (although alternate products for use in the private parts are available) and change pads upto three times daily on period days. In need of immediate help :\

Hello, my name is Cheryl. I am a 45 yr old female. Was diagnosed several yrs ago with IBS (cramping, bloating, alternating constipation/diarrhea). About 8 yrs ago was diagnosed with diverticulitis, confirmed with followup sigmoidoscopy. Have had several flareups since then treated with liquid diet and antibiotics. About 18 months ago developed hives (now chronic). The hives clear up when I am on antibiotics for diverticulitis (flagyl/cipro). Have had a CT scan (said nothing remarkable), have had stool cultures for parasites, bloodwork (CBC, TSH, tested for lupus, etc)-everything negative. Am back to diarrhea with stomach pain, undigested food and mucous in stool. Tried probiotics, made hives worse (cortisone shot also made hives worse). Have also had some RAST tests for food allergies, all negative, and stopped eating gluten a couple of years ago. Do you have any suggestions of what I might request to be tested for at this point? Thank you for your time.

I experienced some mild discomfort om my cheek last wednesday evening and woke up with an extremely swollen and painful cheek in the early hours of the morning so thinking it may be an abscess took 2 x 500mg amoxycillin and a panedine forte (500mf paracetamol. 30mg codiene).. Took a further 500mg amoxylcillin at 6 hourly intervals but when swelling increased went to ER and was given 2 lots of IV antibiotics plus prescriptions for metronidazole and amoxyicillin and had to report back the next day for follow-up.. all is fine swelling is slowly going down not too much pain now.. Had xray which showed no signs pf abscess or cysts or bone lesion or cavitys.. all was normal.. so wjere could the infectiom have come from,?? also my blood pressure is normally 130 over 85 and is usually good but I do take 5mg of civersyl (perindopril arginine) but since this cheek problem my blood pressure is 182 oner 90 pulse 80.. Is this high should I have more follow up???
