Vaginal cream while menstruating?
I went to see a doctor last week for what I thought was a UTI and was given antibioticics. However after a week of taking the antibiotics I still have a slight burning sensation after peeing and still felt the urge to pee quite often and like my bladder isn't fully emptied after peeing, but it isn't as bad as it originally was before taking the antibiotics. So today I decided to go back to the doctor. He said that last week when they sent my urine to be examined it came back that I actually didn't have any bacterial infection so that's why the antibiotics probably weren't working.
I mentioned how I was treated for chlamydia last month and was wondering if maybe it hadn't gone away and maybe was causing these symptoms. The doctor said it probably wasn't likely, but he took another swab just in case. He said it didn't look like anything unusual was going on in my vagina and there was no odd smell or discharge, only a slight pinkness. So he gave me a vaginal antibiotic cream called Flagystatin and told me to use it for 10 days. I guess it is supposed to help the burning feeling I have been experiencing, but I don't see how it's going to help my urge to pee all the time?? Has anyone else taken this before??
Also, I am going to be getting my period in 4 days and was wondering if I will still be able to use a tampon while using this cream? It didn't say anything in the pamphlet about it...
I am on the Pill so I was thinking I could possibly skip my period this month, but I've never done that before and don't know what the side effects are?? I really don't want any side effects these next few weeks because I am really busy with final exams at school!
Sorry, I know this is a lot of questions in one post!
