Recurrent uti's why could this be? Tried everything. Is it normal to just be prone? Also this time brown discharge. History of kidney stones

Need ua c&s: You need to have a urine analysis with culture and sensitivity. Also, pelvic ultrasound. Did you ever have abdominal or pelvic surgery. If so, your at risk for other problems.

Dr didn't retest for uti. Have had for 3 weeks. Pain in groin, back, muscles, and joints. Also have brown discharge and flakes in bowl. On mirena (levonorgestrel)?

Get retested: Ambryn,

You should definitely get retested. Not knowing your situation, I would also suggest testing for STD's, as they can cause brown discharge as well. Finally, testing for pregnancy could be of use. Getting pregnant on Mirena (levonorgestrel) is not likely, but it is possible. Hope this helps! ...Read more

As far as brown discharge from vagina. It stopped with taking septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). I have a uti, could the brown discharge clearing mean, the septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is working.

As far as brown discharge from vagina. It stopped with taking septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim). I have a uti, could the brown discharge clearing mean, the septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is working.

Possible: Septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is not usually used for vaginal infections. It is frequently used for bladder infections. One of the more frequent causes of bladder infections is the e. Coli bacteria from the rectum. If that organism causes vaginal symptoms, then septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) would have an effect on those symptoms while being used for the bladder infection. ...Read more

Brown discharge after protected sex then uti symptoms. Took antibiotics for uti But still have discharge. Supposed to get period but haven't. Pregnant?

May be: It depends on what u r using for protection how likely pregnancy is if u r late for your period and having a brown discharge. The brown discharge may be your period on some contraceptives. If in doubt, check a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days if it is negative. If it is still negative and u r still worried, see your PCP or gynecologist who will take a fuller history and can do an exam and test ...Read more

I have symptoms of uti accompanied with brown speckled discharge and when I wiped it was a clearish discharge with pink. Not much odor. Help!?

What to do if I have a UTI & brown vaginal discharge what does this mean?

What to do if I have a UTI & brown vaginal discharge what does this mean?

Probably Unrelated: During periods, we shed the inner lining of the uterus -- the endometrium -- if we're not pregnant. Sometimes that shed layer may not come out for a day or two & can turn brown. So can be normal; why it changed, I can't say. If you are having low pelvic pain, the discharge is unusually foul smelling, or your have a fever, though, it could be an infection -- then see an ob/gyn! Good luck! ...Read more

I'm getting dark brown discharge. Went to get checked for STIS came out negative. Was positive for a UTI. I'm not pregnant. Is my UTI the cause?

Likely not UTI: Kourtney, dark brown vaginal discharge would not be a common sign of a UTI. Classic UTI symptoms would be burning with peeing, peeing frequently, or increased urgency. Occasionally women can get blood in the urine which can be brownish, but it would be rare to have vaginal discharge. You should check with your ObGyn or see a specialist in Urogyn/Female Urology. ...Read more
