“Down there”? The uterus is an internal organ. The location of the infection is not so much gross as it is inappropriate. What’s lame is how repetitive she is and that she is posting about her very personal health, while in the hospital, because she doesn’t have a life beyond the internet.
Katie says she’s having contractions – fair enough.
Her friend simply says that she hopes Katie feels better – fair enough.
Katie replies as if her mate has said “Hope to meet your baby soon” – EPIC LAME!
You gotta love how selfish this all seems. Shouldnt she be more concerned that her love child with Bubba up the block is gonna be ok? Its all about her and her uterus and her infection. And what the hell kind of nasty person says they have a infection of anything?
I know what she has. It is bacterial vaginosis. If you are pregnant, it will cause contractions and early labor. What disturbs me is this:
1) She is telling the world about her STD,
2) She has an STD while pregnant,
3) She is confused that “uterus contracting” and contractions are not the same thing.
4) She is breeding.
Let’s get one thing straight …this posting is indeed lame as well as annoying. That being said…bacterial vaginosis is not an STD. It may indeed cause pre-term labor but hardly qualifies someone as a peasant. In fact it is common in pregnancy (per the CDC). Multiple sexual partners is a risk factor for BV, but so is douching…something even a virgin can do
Obviously you all haven’t had to deal with preterm labor either.
a) It is typically assumed that someone has an infection if they are in preterm labor. They take a “better safe than sorry” approach when it comes to infections.
b) the two main drugs they use to stop contractions will majorly fuck with your head. She most likely received terbutaline, which is a smooth muscle relaxer and has the side effect of giving you the attention span of a manic fruit fly on meth.
Lame is lame, but this is not lame, the ignorance in the comments is.
