Vaginal pain after antibiotics - any help appreciated

I was diagnosed with a UTI on Friday and have been taking Cipro. The UTI actually feels better but now I am having vaginal pain and basic genitalia soreness. It feels like there is a stick in me and it is unrelenting. There is no discharge but could this be vaginitis? What can I do to relieve the discomfort?

You can get yeast infection from taking antibiotics. You will need to see your doctor either way......yeast won't go away without help.

I am not sure, it could be a yeast infection from the antibiotics, but I would call your obgyn, or prescribing dr. Good luck. let us know.

Probably a yeast infection. It's very common for women to get a yeast infection when taking antibiotics. Go get some Acidopholis. It's basically a vitamin/supplement that you can buy at any drugstore over the counter. It helps prevent this from happening.

If I'm prescribed antibiotics, I start taking the acidopholis the day before taking my meds. It really helps!

You are probably going to think this is crazy, but it actually happened to me. Last year, I had a UTI and went to my primary. He gave me the 3 day Cipro. I took it all, but by day 3, I had unbearble low back pain. Not really vaginal pain, but lower back and hip area.

I went back to my primary, they did another urine culture, and the UTI was gone. They even did x-rays to see if my kidneys were OK. I have a history of ovarian cysts, so I went to my GYN and that wasn't it, either.

It wasn't till I saw another specialist that I see for something else, that I found out. It was a reaction to the Cipro! I guess its not really common, but if you are allergic, it can cause "acute arthralgia" which is joint pain, and "acute myalgia", which is muscle pain or spasms.

My doc said to make sure any other docs I see, that I'm allergic to Cipro.

Hope this helps. Take care.
