Hi Ryland,

Firstly, I am sorry to hear of your loss. It is very sad when someone loses a baby mid-term.

It appears to me that your symptoms could be linked to a probable sexually transmitted infection ("STI").

I recommend that you visit your doctor and ask for a full STI screen to find out the cause of the problem for you. Depending on the nature of the problem, your doctor will be able to prescribe you the appropriate antibiotics to take to deal with your symptoms.

It's also essential to inform any partners so that they can be evaluated and treated. If untreated, STDs can increase your risk of acquiring another STD such as HIV. This happens because an STD can stimulate an immune response in the genital area or cause sores, either of which might make HIV transmission more likely. Some untreated STDs can also lead to infertility.

I recommend that you ask your partner to have an STI screen before you engage in unprotected intercourse to ensure that you do not experience similar problems in future.
