None: None of what you are describing indicate a bacterial infection, actually it resemble more of allergy response.
treat your symptoms with allergy medicine like zyrtec during the day and benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night. Take OTC cough medicine like mucinex DM at least twice a day, with or without elixir like robitussin, or nyquill.
stay well hydrated. ...Read more

Signs of a sexual viral or bacterial infection in my throat? Haven't done oral in 2 months but sore throat for a few weeks now? Almost a month? : (

Signs of a sexual viral or bacterial infection in my throat? Haven't done oral in 2 months but sore throat for a few weeks now? Almost a month? : (

Maybe...: Most likely it is a usual virus that causes sore throats. I have to admit it makes me wonder why you think of an STD as a source first before the more likely usual cold virus. On the other hand, if you are highly sexually active you at a minimum need to be evaluated for the possibility of STD as a pharyngitis source. Perhaps ur dr will treat with antibiotics to "cover" for STD's as a source? ...Read more

What is wrong with me? For over 2 months I have been battling a UTI that has caused the over growth of yeast and bacteria to keep giving me vaginal infections back to back. According to test results I have no current vaginal yeast or bacterial infection,

What is wrong with me? For over 2 months I have been battling a UTI that has caused the over growth of yeast and bacteria to keep giving me vaginal infections back to back. According to test results I have no current vaginal yeast or bacterial infection,

Discharge: Discharge can be normal depending on where you are in your cycle. It is an issue when it has an odor or causes bacterial or vaginal irritation. You did not mention any of these symptoms in your post, which is why I am assuming your doctor said this could be normal. Also typically uti's do not cause vaginal infections, especially when treated. If this problem persists consider asking for additional diagnostic testing.
Best of luck. ...Read more
