So this all started about two months when I got a UTI, and I was prescribed ten days of antibiotics. Half way through the antibiotics, I started getting signs of a yeast infection-itching, redness, burning when I urinated. I called the doctor, and they told me to use some over the counter cream, which I did.
My UTI cleared up and my yeast infection symptoms went away for about two weeks. Then on a Sunday night, I started to have this horrible pain in my abdomen. It was so bad I was crying, so sister made me go to the ER. At the ER, they diagnosed with another UTI and gave me antibiotics for ten days. Once again, during the course of the treatment I got another yeast infection. Having been unhappy with the service of the first doctor, I went to OGBYN, where they tested me for UTI, STIs, pregnancy, and yeast infection. I tested negative for everything but yeast. She told me the yeast wasn't very high so just use the OC Monistast 3 day which I did.
After starting the treatment my symptoms got better and stayed that way for a week or so and then they came. So I made another appointment. During the four days I waited for my appointment, my symptoms came and went. There was severe itching, redness, soreness and pain in the vagina, lots of pressure in the abdomen, and digestive issues.
At the doctors I was diagnosed with a yeast injection again-3rd one in about two months. She prescribed the oral medication fluconazole (150 mg). This is my third day since I took that medication and my symptoms are pretty much the same.
At this point, I am very frustrated. I don't feel like any of these treatments are working. I don't think it's normal to suddenly have three yeast infections. I know it's the antibiotics that caused it as that's the only thing that's different in my life.
I don't know how long I should wait to call and say the medication doesn't seem to be working. Feeling sick for the last two months is negatively impacting my life.
Any suggestions? Should I call the doctor now or wait?
