Staph infection in Uterus?? Please bump!
I have a friend who just found out she had a really rare form of staph infection in her uterus. She's now on antibiotics for it...She hasn't been to a hospital since last year and is in general a fairly healthy person..She had the Mirena in until about a month ago, but had it taken out because her body was rejecting it. Just over the Holidays she started having really bright red, heavy bleeding and passed tissue as well as clots that lasted for about 7 days. She is has been irregular her whole life and this bright red blood was different. She now thinks she might have had a miscarriage.
My question is, how do you get a staph infection in the uterus if you haven't been to a hospital in a year and what were your symptoms if you've ever had one? She's really freaking because it was so different for her!
