I hope you can help- posted this on the urology site, but got few answers, so here goes. I am 52 years old, have not had a period past 3 years, but spotted once over a month ago. Went to see my GYNO and he did an endometrial Biopsy in the office- did not obtain enough tissue, so he recommended I have a D&C, which was performed a week ago today. He found a uterine polyp- no cancer.
A week after he performed the endometrial biopsy, I began having symptoms of constantly feeling like I have to pee all the time. No burning or pain, just urgency. The day of my D&C I told the Doc of my symptoms and he obtained a urine specimen, put me on Bactrim DS , had the surgery and went home. Three days later I called the office saying that I still felt like I had to pee all the time and he suggested I may have a yeast infection and to use Monistat. I have not used the Monistat yet, the 3 days worth of Bactrim did not help and I bought a UTI kit at the drugstore to see if I really do have a bladder infection- it came back negative too.
Can a yeast infection mimick a bladder infection? I have had both in my lifetime and this does not feel like a yeast infection, but more like a bladder infection. But he is convinced I probably have a yeast infection. Like I said, the ONLY symptom I have is urgency to pee.
Should I try the monistat or call a urologist? Been drinking plenty of fluids, including cranberry juice (not concentrated) and taking cranberry pills- nothing is working.
I do not take hormones of any kind or any other meds except an occassional Benadryl. This problem did not start until he performed an endometrial biopsy and I wonder if he introduced bacteria up there. I am not running a fever and I dont feel ill.
