Question Coumadin and Cipro -- a dangerous combination?

I am taking coumadin for a heredity blood clotting disorder. I will be taking it for the rest of my life. Yesterday I was diagnosed with "maybe" a UTI. The doctor said the level of bacteria was so low she can't be sure. She said the bacteria could be coming from a vaginal yeast infection I have. She prescribed cipro. But after reading the patient information it seems like a very dangerous drug to take with coumadin and I don't want to risk it for a "maybe" infection. How dangerous is the combination.
