My story starts about two weeks before Thanksgiving. I went on Augmenten (sp?) for a sinus infection. While on my 5/7th day I started to get a burning sensation when I peed. I thought it was a yeast infection so I treated it over the counter with Monistat one night treatment. It seemed to get better.. and then it came back. I went to the gynocologist and was told I had Bacterial Vaginosis, and was given a three-day treatment of oral Flagyl. I seemed fine for awhile, but then the burning after urination came back around mid-december. It did not go away. Then, I got a UTI, which was treated with Cipro(i think). Then not long after I went to the gynocologist and was told I had yeast. I was treated with the one-day pill for yeast. The burning went away for 5 days, then came back. Then I was put on Terconizole (sp?) vaginal suppository for 3 days.. it didn't go away. So I called my gyno and I was then given a 5 day regiment of Metronidazole gel suppository. I've now taken it for five days (i have 7 days worth so I think I'm going to take 7 days), and while I have improvement, I still have the burning. It ONLY burns after I urinate, and my labia and vaginal opening burn, not up inside. It burns for awhile and then goes away. I do not have a UTI, seeing as I self-treat myself for them now since my gynocologist gave me the prescription for it..
Has anyone had anythign similar happen, or know what I can do to help. I haven't been able to have sex with my boyfriend for almost a month and I haven't gone a day without some sort of burning. Help!!!
and p.s I have been taking probiotic acidopholus (sp?)
I would also like to add that I really don't think it is a UTI, because my urine tested negative last time I was at the gynocologist. Also, the burning is on the outside of my vagina, not in my urethra.
Edit: Addition. I just used an AZO test strip for UTI and my WBC came up with very very little purple (wbc positive). It was like barely speckled purple on the white. I'm so frustrated with this.
Nitrate was negative, and I'm still pretty sure its not a UTI cause its not showing symptoms I've had with the other 5 UTIs I've had in the past year
