Hello,Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I will be helping you today.
How long have you been on the birth control pills?
It will take at least 2-3 months for the birth control pills to regulate your periods again. The sweating is likely from disrupted hormones, possibly disturbed by all of the antibiotics, or even from whatever infection it was that you actually had. It should get progressively better as the weeks go on.
Whenever you think you have a UTI, it's best to get a test to make sure before taking antibiotics, because they can upset your vaginal flora and result in a yeast infection, which sounds like what happened to you. There are also antibiotics that don't have to be taken for such a long time, lessening the unintended impact on your other systems.
Please let me know if you need additional information about this, but I do think the pills will take care of the sweating problem as they regulate your hormones.
"...sweating isn't always constant (seems to flare up a bit but then calm down) suggest that it's just a hormonal problem that will stop with the help of birth control? ...."
I think it is just a hormonal problem, which can be exacerbated by anxiety :-)
And you are right, googling is never a good idea when dealing with health issues.
Did you have additional questions about this before leaving a rating (hopefully a "5"). There is no additional charge, but a positive rating is the only way I am credited for providing the answer.
