ok this is probably gross but i've stumped my reg. dr. and my OB. since i've had blood in my urine i started getting alot of yeast infections for no reason and have had thrush on my mouth for almost 2 years. and the past 6 months or so i get discharge every time i wipe, and it varies in color and consistency. they always test and tell me its nothing to worry about no infection and no bacteria. do any other women have this issue. it popped up with all my others so wondering if its a side effect or symptom from lupus. i know my immune system is way wacky so just want to know if i should push into my OB again to get more answers. not sure if this is where all my abdomen pain is coming from. also the burning sensation in my back (i swear its my kidneys). still new to this and every little thing i will probably ask you about. thanks for listening.

Don't know if this is worth anything, but when I began having kidney and bladder problems, it was my OB dr. that picked up on it.
When I went to my Urologist, He said that the newer OB drs. were taught to look for other conditions and send patients to appropriate specialists.
Don't know if true, but was the truth in my case. How long has your OB dr. been out of school?

I know my OB is great, she is the one that actually encouraged me to push my doctor about tests. She also checked me for breast cancer, cervical cancer, and ovarian cancer while i was in. Some of my symptoms were questionable. But thank god all came back just fine. No cancer. I am having more blood work and another CT scan this week so hopefully that will shed more light on my condition. Thanks again for all of your support.
