    Goodevening. Having clots in your menstrual blood could be a sign of excessive bleeding called menorrhagia and this is commonly caused by fibroid. You should do a pelvic ultrasound scan to confirm this. For the staphylococcus infection, I'll advise you repeat a vaginal swab MCS at a standard laboratory or a tertiary health care centre to ensure uncontaminated sample collection. And ensure you complete the course of drug prescribed and ensure your partner is treated when you are getting treated because if he is not treated anytime you have unprotected sexual intercourse you will have the infection again. Take care

    ok thanks for your answer but I'm not yet satisfied with your advice.I've attached the lab result to this message and I hope it helps understand my point here.The drugs I took was Levofloxacin3+ like a drip in a container and ciproxin3+ tablet don't know if I got the spellings right but I'm sure it's the drugs I took and that was on the 10th -18th of December last year. The drugs didn't work at all.Please I need a better prescription of drugs.Thanks.

    Was your partner also treated? If not, you will keep having recurrence of the infection. So you should have him also do a urinalysis and urine mcs and both of you should get treated together.

    I guess that's not really where the problem is coming from. He doesn't know I'm treating an infection. And besides, we've been on contraceptive since we start having sex. Meanwhile,I've been treating it even before we met and all the pelvic scans I've done previously, shows nothing strange in my system. The HVS lab result only showed that I have a heavy growth of staphylococcus aureus that was why those drugs were prescribed for me.I just want a stronger drugs to cure it once and for all.

    You are still not getting my point. If you use the strongest antibiotics today and the infection is cured. Your next sexual exposure with your partner will reintroduce the bacteria into your system and you will have the infection again. The infection can be assymptomatic in your partner. So you MUST get him treated if you want the infection cured once and for all. Using contraceptives doesn't prevent transmission of infection except you are always using condom. Please kindly do this and surely you wouldn't have a recurrence. Take care
