Our expert says:
According to your urine test you definitely do have a urine tract infection. For an unpleasant vaginal smell, try using Betadine vaginal douche twice a day vaginally for a week, but please also drink probiotics three times a day while using the douche and the antibiotics. (Betadine contains Iodene so don't use if you are allergic to Iodene) If they can find no cause for the pain with the examinations already done, the next step may be to do a laproscopy to check for endometriosis. I know you feel discouraged but often we need to find the cause of a persistant pain by going through all the possible causes - it is like building a puzzle and sometimes you need quite a few pieces before you begin to see the picture. If you get more than 3 urine tract infections (with leucocytes in the urine and cultured bacteria) per year, you need to see an urologist as you need a scope (cystoscopy) under anaesthetic to see if there is a problem in the urine tract itself. Keep me posted. Hope the Betadine works for the smell.
