Unhappy spotting after menopause

Hello Everyone,
My name is Becky(54 yrs old and ts been about 1 and 1/2 years since my last period) I am posting for the fiirst time...came across this wonderful site while searching for infomation about UTi's and the recent spottin I have had.....hope someone can offer their stoy or some insight!! Need to talk to someone...I am scared!!! Long story short...I came back form a overseas trip a month ago..put off going to the dr even though I had bad UTI symptoms...finally went and she did a culture and sure enough it was WICKED bad she said...I thought it might be my LARGE fibrods pressing on my bladder which has happened before and cause UTI symptoms...got some Cipro which I had a bad reaction to and then Bactrim which did work..so started to self-medicate with a some amoxicillin which I had a new scrip for that I took with me overseas just in case I got sick...anyway she did another culture which was neg because I was on the amoxicillin ...she then gave me cephalexin which worked well to take away the HORRIBLE back ache and pelvic bladder pain and I stopped peeing ever 10 seconds!! well just this sunday I was feeling so much better but noticing a "funny" feeling in my virgina..and some burning 2...then I spotted some pinkish discharge several times sunday and then once today...I am having the bad bladder pressure again and peeing all the time...sometimes lots sometimes a drop...called my gyno and was told not to worry since it was not bright red blood...I wanted to be seen right away but was told just to keep the appointment I had already set up already on the 18th ....thinking of returning to my regular MD tomorrow and she what she says.... this pressure and pelvic is really getting to me ...especially after almost being over it!! any ideas out there or stories??? Thanks for listening...sorry to be so long

Post Re: spotting after menopause

You probably are having a doosy of a UTI...
I am not trying to offend you, but did you have sexual relations on Saturday perhaps?
After menopause the vaginal area and canal lose elasticity and moisture so sometimes relations can result in microscopic tears. Just a thought.
Ofcourse we all self medicate when we shouldn't but I thought that I would just tell you that certain antibiotics treat certain problems, kind of lock and key...ya know? Amoxicillian isn't used to treat UTI's, it is mostly used for respiratory, ears, nose and stuff. Just an FYI.
I think that going to your PCP tomorrow is a good idea, just to do a UA. Make sure that they culture it!
I hope that I helped in someway.
Have a goodnight!

Re: spotting after menopause

Thanks for the reply!!! My GP did say it was a BAD infection...but to get worse after starting to get better...well..its depressing!! No sex on Sat night!! not with the way I feel!!!! Now my GP told me that my type of UTI was VERY sensitive to Amoxicillin...But because back in the 70's I had a bad reaction to penicillin she felt better if I took no-penicilln based meds...
anyway I just went to the bathroom 5 mins ago and my bladder feels pressure to go again!!! hope I can sleep!!! you have a good night too!
