Can ureaplasma cause BV and does it show clue cells like BV under microscope dr said they don't treat so just treated BV scared ill get it back?

This is one organism that is looked for when working up women with recurrent miscarriage and infertility so it may be important in those situations. It does not show clue cells under the microscope. ...Read more

Abnormal flora: It sounds like your vaginal bacterial balance is out of whack. You may need some antibiotics, and i would follow that up with a vaginal probiotic to help build up your healthy bacteria. Your doctor should know what to prescribe. When you've completed that treatment, you can try going to whole foods to find a "vaginal" probiotic. (it won't help much to take it orally. Must insert vaginally). ...Read more

Anxiety over HIV: This doesn't sound like a true HIV exposure, although I can sense your anxiety. It's always good to talk to a health care provider if you have concerns. What counts in your favor here is 1-the source patient had undetectable viral load, 2-HIV dies when outside the body, and 3-you did not report any break in the skin. Thus your chance for acquiring HIV from this incident is zero. ...Read more

Vaginal irritation and burning x5 days, tx x2 days with metro gel. Sx amplified and now have foul odor, dysuria, and thick d/c. Wet prep in office =. ?

BV? STD? Herpes?: You give mixed symptoms suggesting different problems. Discharge with "foul" odor suggests trichomonas (an STD) or bacterial vaginosis. "Thick" discharge sounds like an STD such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. Vaginal irritation and itching suggest yeast or herpes, and herpes can trigger BV. The main thing is to stop guessing, stop treating yourself with MetroGel, and see a doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more

Very rare inflammatory cells on wet mount..what does it mean?

Body is responding: If there are 'inflammatory' cells seen, then that means your body is fighting some type of disease - most likely an infection. The immune system is extraordinarily complex and has at its disposal an arsenal of cells that will 'fight' for you - that's what's been reported here on microscopy. Depending on your history, symptoms and other tests, a doctor should be easily able to help you get better. ...Read more

Holter monitor: Wear it on you for the time it was prescribed for. Don't get it wet. If you have any symptoms like chest pain, palpitation or any unusual feeling chart it down in a dairy and give it to your cardiologist when you return the monitor. ...Read more
