I have Endo and I am on provera.Last month I was hospitalised due to severe pain and very bad smelly discharge.The Gynae said it was an infection in my womb and I was on 2 lots of antibiotics for 2 weeks.This cleared up the discharge and the smell went away.
Since last week I have started to suffer with lower back pain and my stomach is all swollen,I also have pain in my right side and my vagina is very sore,this I seem to be able to control taking my prescribed pain killers.
The real problem is the discharge and the smell from it,its really bad.For example today I had a shower at 9am by 12 I had to change my underwear as it was destroyed and the smell was sickening,at 4pm I has to do the same thing.I work 10-5 so this is very embarrassing because I know it smells really bad.Even the Gynae said it was a very strong smell when i was in hospital.
I have a shower in the morn,after work and before I go to bed and the next morn I am destroyed and the smell is really bad,even my mam has said it to me!!!!!!
I use a special feminine soap but this doesnt seem to work.I am back with my gynae next month but this is really getting out of hand.
aw hun, same thing happened to me with anything nr my floot, dont worry, think many of us get it, there are a few good remedies i frequently use if i accidently come into contact, ky jelly is a nono too, just water thats it, u will get used to it, i use activ balance, or biofem active gel, they are a bit pricey and dont last long but totally worth it. i use them like 2/3 times a day until the smell goes then i use just them now and again to keep a good flora balance. the gynae were no help to me with regards to this, so did research myself and found many women with endometriosis have chemical sensitivety, so ur not alone. i hope this helps for you.
sometimes theres a breakthru bleed or spotting, ru due another shot? when the bleed subsides use one of them things i mentioned, for some reason the discharge gets worse with bleeds, sometimes a bleed triggers the discharge cos it unbalances the levels, i hope u feel better soon, take care
im not on injections,taking 3 provera tabs a day and ive been bleeding ever day.I was on provera a few years ago and dont remember bleeding on it.I supose it al cums wit havn endo,you wud think i wud be use to it by now as I have it 12 years.I have an appointment wit my gynae on the 23rd of ths month so hopefully she will have de results of my test.Thanks bluedaze you have been very helpful
I have the same bad horrifying oder you are describing and pain and soreness. I am currently in the process of getting diagnosed. They think its a. endometriosis b. PID or c. some kind of std. I find it helpful to bath in water that has apple cider vinegar that I add to it. It keeps the smell away for atleast 8 hours.
