BV and UTI at the same time??

Hi, everybody.

So I think I'm fortunate enough to get both BV and UTI at the same time because my vagina loves me.  I've had plenty of recurring UTIs and BV once before.   I'm currently studying abroad in Taiwan, so before I left the States, my doctor helped me out by prescribing me Nitrofurantoin (for UTI) and Clindamycin (for BV) in case I get those infections while I'm out of the country.  

Well, yesterday, throughout the day, I felt a strong urgency to pee with just a few drops of urine each time.  I took my cranberry supplements (I know it's to prevent the UTI, not cure, but I took them anyways hoping they would help) and drank lots of water.  By night time, it felt like it cleared up.  This morning, I decided to start taking the Nitrofurantoin, even though I didn't feel any UTI symptoms throughout the morning.  This afternoon, I noticed the BV symptoms, a fishy odor.  It's not very strong, but stronger than normal.  Later on, I noticed white discharge.  I assumed that maybe I didn't have a UTI after all.. maybe it's BV instead.  So during dinner, I took one Clindamycin.  Two hours after taking it, the UTI symptoms are back and I can't stop running to the bathroom.

My current symptoms are:  frequent urination, but not much comes out (it doesn't burn, but my urethra is definitely irritated and tingly), fishy odor, slight discharge, and neon yellow urine (that may be caused by the meds).  I used one of those AZO UTI test strips, and I definitely have white blood cells in my urine, and it seems like negative nitrite.  I took one nitrofurantoin this morning, and one clindamycin this evening.  I know... I'm stupid for taking two different antibiotics at the same time.  I wasn't thinking straight.  Just wondering if I can get a UTI and BV at the same time? and should I keep taking the antibiotics?  More importantly, which antibiotic should I take?

If this doesn't clear up in another day or two, I'll probably go to a nearby hospital/clinic.  I'm just worried about the language barrier.

Thanks in advance!!
