STD

Gosh. Apparently I gave my wife an STD. The doctor hasn't said much, except that this condition is expected to persist till July 2010. Looking at the test results, I don't quite recognize the microorganism; doesn't look like Chlamydia, doesn't look like a spirochete either... though there is something vaguely familiar. Maybe someone out there can help me. Any ID specialists? Jimbo?
Clinical features are unfamiliar to me too, but then again I'm just a humble endocrinologist and don't remember my microbiology, but they include secondary amenorrhea, food cravings, nausea, fatigue and extreme mood lability and high risk for bodily harm (to me).
What is the most appropriate treatment for this condition? I've been told that generous amounts of chocolates, back rubs may help control things?

Ah! A very common condition. Mode of transmission: Quite accidental most of the times; other factors include condom leakage and coitus-not-so-interuptus. sometimes, planned transmission may occur (a bit like pre-mediated murder).

The condition is characterized by various signs and symptoms, some of which has already been experienced by Mrs Vagus. Mercifully, most of them would resolve spontaneously by the 3rd month except for the progressively enlarging abdomen.

There is no treatment except for palliative measures which includes lots of tender loving care. some retail therapy is warranted.

The condition is generally benign and should resolve by week 40, or latest week 42; failing which drastic measures may need to be taken!

Recurrence is not uncommon. :)
