preventing yeast infection while on bactrim (antibiotics)
I was prescribed bactrim for a UTI. I am on second full day of taking them and I do feel much better! The only issue I am worried about is getting a yeast infection. I bought probiotics (ultimate flora- 50 billlion) and have been taking it 3 to 4 hours before taking my bactrim twice a day. Plus I am eating yogurt at least twice a day. I bought the ultimate flora at walgreens and I didn't realize it was "Best if refrigerated" until last night. I put it in the fridge immediately, but it was out of there for like a day and a half. Should I buy more or do you think it will be ok? It is expensive, so I don't want to, but will if I have to..
Do you ladies have any other suggestions?? I heard about poking holes in one of the probiotic pills and inserting it into your vagina....sounds weird, but is this a good preventative measure? Would it hurt anything? Ugh, I hate antibiotics.
