I wrote a very encouraging post on Monday about our progress and how well it's going. Monday night my vagina started burning. I went to bed hoping that it was just a burning vagina that would go away over night, but no. I hardly slept it burned so bad and in the morning I had to face the reality that I most likely had a bladder infection. I went to the emergency room and I did indeed have a bladder infection. With the last two bladder infections I've had (the previous one a year and half ago and the most pain I've ever felt in my life), I haven't had the typical symptom of abdominal pain. My pain is mostly intense vaginal burning. Now it's probably really my bladder that is burning but to me it feels like my vagina is burning. So I felt that way again, although this time my pain was around a 9 instead of the 10 that it was last time.
I actually had to miss the last day of school for the students because I was in so much pain I just couldn't imagine going to work.
So I took the antibiotic that the doctor prescribed and then guess what happened? I bet you've already guessed. Yes, I felt a yeast infection coming on. My vagina started to itch yesterday and I knew. Usually when prescribed an antibiotic I will ask for Diflucan, but I just wasn't thinking. So I went to the gynecologist today and I do have a mild yeast infection. Oh, and I also have a little blood in my urine, which they didn't mention at the hospital.
So to sum up, my first week of summer break has been met with a burning and itching vagina and orange pee that burns when it comes out. I hope to be past all this soon so we can get back to our activities without losing too much progress.
