started to get itchy yesterday and didn't think much of it cause i have my period and figured that was causing the itching. last night it started getting worse while i was working out. but it started getting worse after i changed my tampon. so the story about changing my tampon... half way thru the workout i had to change my tampon. while changing it, i dropped the new applicator in the toilet. i picked it up, panicked, wiped it off and put it in. i figured it was just the applicator and it wouldnt be a big deal. shortly after the itching got a bit worse but i figured that was from working out.
i woke up today and had almost constant burning/twinge/itching/pain down there. i thought it was an ob since i have hsv down there. i havent had an ob for a long time so i thought thats what it was. i was just about to call in my prescription when it got worse and then i thought i may have an infection from my dumb move last night. so i went into the doc. they didnt do a smear since i have my period and they didnt think the results would be readable. doc gave me an antiobiotic for 3 days and then a medication for yeast infection.
i obviously just started the medication but im still not sure if i have an ob. with all this medicine is it ok to take acyclovir as well??? should i wait and ride out the antibiotic for 3 days? is 3 days enough to kill the infection (if i have one)? am i going to be ok??? View Thread
