I've been diagnosed with PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) several times the last few years and was diagnosed again just under a month ago. I've been on antibiotics, (doxycycline) but they don't seem to be working this time.
Is it normal for PID to take a while to go? And are my symptoms normal? I'm getting bloody discharge, pressure in my pelvic region, sharp pains in my vagina, pain in my side, hip pain, back pain, my ribs hurt, the back of my legs hurt.. And I get SO bloated and uncomfortable. I'm so terrified that something is seriously wrong.
I've got a scan scheduled in two weeks. Will this show if anything else is wrong?
Each time I've been to the doctor's, they've just told me to wait for the scan. I'm just worried that the longer I wait, the worse whatever this issue is will get.
I'm getting a lot of brown discharge and I'm just very concerned. I am in the ovulation period at the moment, and I've heard that brown discharge can be common during ovulation. But I don't know if it's to do with that or to do with the PID..
The doctor's don't seem to be listening to me and to be honest, I'm starting to feel like a bit of a nuisance.
Any advice? x
