Just got a clean bill of health from my doctor :) but he said I need to take precautions to avoid getting atrophic vaginitis. What can I do?
Is atrophic vaginitis discharge usually white? Can it come and go or is it continuous? Will a vag moist get rid of it or do you have to use estrogen?
Vaginal estrogen: This can effect her in several ways. Atrophic vagina is caused by lack of estrogen stimulation of the walls of the vagina. This leads to thinning of the walls, vaginal dryness, pain with intercourse ("feels like sadpaper" and decreased diameter of the vagina. Without estrogen replacement vaginally as well regular vaginal penetration, the vagina will eventually become so small to inhibit sex.See 3 more doctor answers
Been to emergency room 4 times over the past year for atrophic vaginitis. Now, noticed pea size mass at seven o'clock on entrance to vagina.
Atrophic vaginitis: An er is not a good place to be getting care for your condition. You should make an appointment with your doctor.
Yes and no: Atrophic vaginitis is, basically, a lack of estrogen to the vaginal lining or epithelium. And lack of estrogen means your ovaries aren't producing enough estrogen. If you are having regular menstrual cycles, then your ovaries are still functioning. I'm assuming a doctor told you this? If that's the case, then local estrogen to the vagina is a simple solution. Hope that helped answer question!
Atrophic vaginitis: Atrophic vaginitis may be accompanied by some discharge (not usually assocated with odor or much itching, as seen with infection). The hallmark is vaginal dryness and painful coitus associated with menopause. The best management is estrogen, administered topically or systemically. Lubricants and moisturizers made for vaginal use are also available without prescription.
1-2 weeks: When the estrogen is given directly into the vagina (as a cream, tablet or ring) then it is quite rapid the turnaround in symptoms. The actual vagina skin does not make its full recovery until around 2 wks of use. Using oral estrogen sometimes takes a long time, much longer by weeks even months to rebuild the vaginal tissue.

Can you get Vaginitis again after a course of antibiotics to treat it? Also found a lump back of neck think a gland.
Yes and yes: Vaginitis is one of the many vulnerabilities of the female system. It can become infected repeatedly, depending on lifestyle activities and exposures. It is less common but possible among women who are not sexually active. Lumps on the neck are often lymph nodes. Your doc can confirm it.

No: Low thyroid is fixed only by supplementing with replacement hormone.
Thyroid replacement: If T3 (liothyronine) & T4 are low and TSH is high; then you have hypothyroidism. Thyroid replacement therapy will be needed for the rest of your life. Normal T3 (liothyronine) & T4 levels support normal weight. Synthroid is long acting t4 cytomel is short acting t3 dessicated thyroid is a natural blend of both. This is the least expensive treatment.
Thyroid hormone: The only way to treat a child with hypothyroidism is to replace the thyroid hormone which is lacking. Levothyroxine is very safe and is used in newborn babies who are born without functioning thyroid glands, too. Growth is dependent on getting the right amount of thyroid hormone. Brain development is dependent on getting the right amount of thyroid hormone particularly in children 2 and under.See 2 more doctor answers
That you have: Hypothyroidism and need to see your doctor for brand name T4 replacement to bring your levels back to normal.
Not really: Unless it is part of certain rarely seen syndromes. .. Pancreatitis is certainly not a safe condition, with unpredictable outcome [both short and long term] 'different' in/for each individual. ..Nothing should be taken lightly about pancreatitis. But, there is no direct link between pancreatitis and thyroid disease;on the other hand, hypothyroidism can contribute to pancreas problems.See 1 more doctor answer
