4 weeks after surgery for posterial and vaginal prolapse have infection

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have been given Doxycycline by my doctor and after taking just 3 of the 8 50mg tablets I have the most itchy painful vaginal area which is driving me mad.  I have had difficulty in sleeping last evening and quite frankly after reading the leaflet about Doxycycline I was wary about taking the 1st tablet. It is Saturday early morning and I am at a loss of what to do.

    Is this all swelling from the surgery that you have pain? Does it feel like there is a lump still there from the prolapse? I heard that there is a lot f swelling after this type of surgery. Why are you on such strong medication if is infection? Why not just an antbiotic?

                                    Blessings to you

    Most likely you got a yeast infection. Ask your doctor for something to compensate that. I never got one but my doctor gave me a pill actually just in case since that is pretty common I guess.

    You may have a yeast infection...candida or thrush.   See your doctor.
