About three weeks ago I got sent to the ER with a severe UTI

Customer Question

About three weeks ago I got sent to the ER with a severe UTI and when prescribed me with medication it gave me yeast infection. I finished all my antibiotics including the yeast infection about a week ago but now I'm noticing that it burns to pee and I've had intercourse one time this morning to be exact after not been able to have intercoirse due to the antibiotics that I've been on and turns out it HURTS really bad to sex. It's almost like I'm a vergin again and it wasn't pleasant at all. I want to know what's going to with my body. My husband and I are reall worried. I'm only 25. Someone please give me an answer

You need to see an OB/gyn

You need a complete exam


recurrent yeast

bacterial vaginosis: needs a special antibiotic

recurrent UTI.

Antibiotics disrupt the situation, and other bugs can come in.

You should start using a product called rephresh, which helps balance the vaginal flora.

You need a pelvic exam as well, that is the only way to know what is fully going on.

A repeat urinalysis and culture should be sent to the lab as well.
