    Hello sir...what symptoms were you having that warranted the diagnosis of ",staphylococcus"...I also noted another sample that read e coli as grown....generally staphylococcus is a contaminant of most poorly taken samples and a lot of us have staph living on us. Anyway, what symptoms is your wife currently having and what sample was tested.

    This is the first test she conducted after this she did this one again which shows the infection is still there after the treatment we went back and did the last test I show you my sample is urine and semen was use from my wife

    HELLO again...the staphylococcus looks a likely contaminant as its not a commonly documented cause of PID or infertility as a consequence.The ecoli is a cause of urinary tract infection which too does not directly cause infertility.I have also noticed that her hormone profile looks a bit off.her FSH is high and this may be so if there is no ovulation especialky as she has not seen her period in one year. I think what I am trying to say is that there may be note going on than a not so likely infection.are you seeing a gynaecologist. You should see one with these results. Has she had an HSG to assess her tubes.

    She has done HSG and this is the result We have seen a gaenecologiest in a specialist Hospital at Kebbi State but Lagos here am attended by a doctor who referred me to a gaenecologiest and our appointment is next week.But to be honest doctor am tired of this going from one hospital to another hospital because is like we were given the wrong priscription.

    Hello sir....the major complication of PID is not present from the result of the HSG I see.there is no scarring and the tubes are patent. It must be very frustrating for you going from one hospital to another....I may not be able to comment on the prescriptions but from everything I see here,only the e coli in the urine may need to treated and like I said earlier UTIs don't to my knowledge cause infertlity or seized periods,hence it's not really relevant to her periods. The good thing is that you are on the right path now by going to see a gynecologist. he may not have a quick fix but if your aim is child birth,you may also need to start considering assisted reproductive techniques depending on his findings and how long you both have been trying for children.

    Thank u so much for your time but Doctor to be candid with you our problem is not about child cos already have 3 lovely kids.I wil be glad if I have more but that is not wat is bothering me. Wat is bothering me now is this infection as the previous doctor said our mind will not be at rest till is completely treated to avoid further complications

    I am sorry I assumed based on the many investigations I saw.I'm happy you have three kids already. Well first of all, you have to know that when staph is grown where I work where there are no.clear cut symptoms,it's discarded as a contaminant and no treatment is given.Treatment is however given when it's something called MRSA. Now I am however confused as to what prompted all these tests you did.Was it the no periods for one year? If it was so,I.seriously doubt that the cause is the organisms that are grown..if she is having e coli grown and has utilized symptoms,then a quick 3day course of antibiotics can take care of it.Like I Said,her hormone profile looks unusual based on the High FSH....for a woman who has not seen her periods for one year and is having low progesterone and high FSH,I am thinking more menopausal or premature ovarian failure based on her age.

    She is 43yrs old and I learn that menopause period may start from that age but as I told u my main problem is that infection pls advice me on wat to do which is the best way or test to find out the actual infection and where to get the treatment.Thanks

    ok...I see your concern now and will try to address it. is she having any symptoms that may point to infection...these may be abnormal vaginal discharge,smelly vaginal discharge,deep pain during sex,abnormal vaginal bleed not related to her normal menses,lower tummy pain,pain or burning during urination,fever..... next thing you want to ask is how did she get an infection...Most PIDs are sexually transmitted meaning likely from you, does she douch(she needs to stop),did she recently have an IUD inserted. Lastly please ignore staphylococcus,it's more than likely a contaminant because of poorly taken samples and does not need to be treated. for treatment it should be straightforward if there is truly something to treat.so far during out conversation,you have not told me anything to make think she actually has one and why you did all these tests in the first place. PID or.bacteriap vaginosis is treated with antibiotics(personally,I don't think she has), and the antibiotics you were given above sound ok.
