Let me start with how this all began:

My boyfriend was admitted into the hospital at the beginning of May because he had a MRSA infection on the side of his leg. He was in the hospital for 8 days & a few days after he was released, we had sex. Then the nightmare begins. ):

Every since he got out of the hospital, I have had a combination of yeast infections & bladder infections. I've used over-the-counter creams & pills, taken cranberry pills, drank unsweetened cranberry juice, taken prenatal vitamins (I hear they're better for you.), changed soaps, & God knows what else. It's now gotten to the point where it hurts for him to enter the cervix when we're about to do it.. that's been going on for about a month or more now. (Sorry for TMI.)

I'm not sure if it's linked to anything at the hospital but it's getting ridiculous. I know I should probably go to the doctor but I wanted someone else's opinion before I go. Any information would be much appreciated. (:

Just to be clear, your boyfriend's penis (or anything else, save sperm) isn't entering your cervix. I take it you mean your vagina?

Given you haven't yet had any of these treated with anything but DIY's that don't seem to be helping, and these infections may have spread at this point given how long you have had them for, I'd simply advise getting in and getting seen by your healthcare provider ASAP.
