Q: swollen cervix

I'm 33 married with only one sexual partner ( my Husband!) just finished a period and the following day i was in severe pain with what seemed like thrush symptoms, severe itiching and very swollen red vagina. I sought medical advice and the nurse took a swab, told me my cervix was severely swollen, and then given treatment for thrush. I have used the medication and the itching is gone but I did not loose any discharge like when I have suffered before, instead I am loosing a clear glooey substance....

I am concerned because I have suffered with Gardenella before, my husband has been screened before also incase we are passing it back and forth to each other but he was clear......what is it what is wrong!!!!!

I'd also rule out yeast (a bad case) and the possiblity if treating it with Diflucan.

You should get some result from the nurse's swab so follow up on that for a definitive diagnosis.
