Comment from: 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: November 11

I was diagnosed with PID a few months after I gave birth. I was given antibiotics (Doxy Metronidazole and vaginal suppositories) for two weeks and I got better. A few months after, there was an unusual vaginal discharge which is yellowish and greenish in color and stabbing pain below my stomach. I have a poor appetite, I urinate a lot and my legs are sometimes numb. I feel nauseated and I feel like vomiting sometimes, I also feel feverish most especially before menstruation. I went to see several doctors, but I was told I have UTI and they don't seem to believe that I have had PID before. Now I'm feeling so much worse. I can't wait for the antibiotics to kick in. I'll be going back for my follow up check in two days and hopefully things will get better.
