hi there Dr Owen
I would be grateful for your advice . I can get a GP appointment for a week and in so much pain
Do you have any discharge?
I am not sleeping as scared its sometihing serious
what is your height and weight?
i am 5 foot 3
weight 14 stone
okay - let me do some writing...hold for a bit
are you on birth control?
are you in a monogamous relationship?
yes been married for 7 years same sexual partner for 11 years, He has no similar problems
do you have diabetes or prediabetes?
well you might have a yeast infection - that is resistant
so hence you should get a culture for this
and then you might need a prescription medication such as Diflucan
could it be anything more serious than this? its only on the oneside i can feel lumps
Also you should be checked for something called Lichen - and hence you might need a Steroid cream for this
Very UNLIKELY anything to be serious, especially at your age
so a good test such as a culture and a small biopsy if the prescription medication does not work
in regard to my periods being missing i am concerned also. as this is the longest they are missing even with PCOS
this has to do with PCOS - missing periods NOT something that is serious - it never is
i am just concerned there is a underlying issue causing this
the underlying cause is PCOS - it usually is at your age
the other reasons would be a thyroid condition - if you have not had this checked - a TSH thyroid blood test should be done
and then also even stress/ anxiety can cause this
okay you have reassured me and hiopefully I will sleep better now. I will attend a GUM clinic tomorrow as its a walkin
many many thanks
You are welcome

have a very good evening
