In March I developed my first UTI after having sex with my new boyfriend. I was given an antibiotic (Cipro) which cleared up the UTI bbut then gave me BV. I was given another antibiotic for the BV (Metrogel) , but I used a bit more of it than was prescribed because I wasn't feeling any better after a few days. I guess that was a big mistake because even though I was given a Diflucan pill to take before and after the Metrogel, my next dr visit showed the BV had been cleared but I had a mild yeast infection. You'd think a "mild" yeast infection would be easy to clear but the Terazol 3 my dr gave me only made the symptoms ease a little and I just tried Gyne Lotrimine 3 which did pretty much nothing. Everything I'm reading online about a yeast infection that won't go away indicates diabetes or HIV, but could this have something to do with my body being out of whack after having 3 infections and a number of anti fungals and anitbiotics in my system over the past few months? Any ideas on how to fix it. I'm taking a probiotic with 25 billion units every morning and night but feel no change.View Thread
