Hi, I posted a message here like two days ago and I wasn't sure if you got it though so I'm rewriting it to you. I have thyroid problem called Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and because of this matter I get a very light pounding feeling right one where the thyroid is located. I get this problem at night time which really scares me. I'm going to see a thyroid specialist soon and meanwhile something else bothering me to and I heard it's related to my thyroid issue being a autoimmune problem. I heard having autoimmune problem means your body has infection and whenever I have no appetite and having nausea it has always come out being related to infection. What I wrote here below I heard it can be related to this to and recently I realized I keep having pain down my vagina when I touch it I want to know do you think such matter I'm explaining is related to this below?

"The detection of one of the mycoplasmas or U. urealyticm in a cultured sample may indicate that the person being tested has a mycoplasma infection, particularly if the sample is from a body site that is normally sterile, such as joint fluid or blood. However, if the sample is from the respiratory tract or the genital tract, a positive culture may also mean that the mycoplasma is present as part of their normal flora. For example, U. urealyticm is present in the genital tract of about 60% of healthy women and M. hominis is present in about 20%. Occasionally, testing may be used to determine if Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma genitalium, or Ureaplasma urealyticm is the cause of an infection of the genital or urinary tract. M. hominis and U. urealyticm genital samples are typically tested using a culture method that takes several days to recover the microorganisms, but M. genitalium, which can take 1-2 months to grow, may be more reliably detected with DNA testing."
I was wondering for such matter do you think I should see my GYN? If I see her should I say what I wrote here to you in this paragraph above? Please let me know about this soon.

I am so sorry. I am getting as frustrated as you because I responded to this question this morning and for some reason my response cannot be seen. Allow me to try again, and hopefully my response will get to you this time.

You have made some good connections here. You could very well have Mycoplasma genitalium because it is connected to immune deficiency and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is linked back to the immunity. However, you could simply have a yeast infection. Either way I suggest you see a GYN doctor because they would be able to tell you the difference. 

Keep in mind that doctors (as harsh as it sounds) want to spend as little time and money on each patient as possible. Unless its absolutely necessary they would rather not test you for anything complicated. When you visit to GYN doctor they will most like say you have a yeast infection give you a pill, and send you out the door. But do not settle for this is you want to be tested for Mycoplasma hominis, Mycoplasma genitalium, or Ureaplasma urealyticum. Take the liberty to demand exactly want you want.

It is also important to note the thyroid directly effectives the hormones that control your menstrual cycle. Thus you need to stay informed on how Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is effecting your hormones levels by having them checked on a regular basis. Hormonal imbalances can also be causing the pain you're having in your vaginal area.
I hope this has been helpful. And I hope you get my response this time!
