How the HELL am I supposed to know?!?!?!
OK, so I am ALWAYS paranoid about getting some kind of vaginal infection, and the idea of any additional vagina problem gives me severe anxiety!! I always have burning and sometimes itching, so I worry that I would not notice a difference if I did get an infection since I live with the same symptoms EVERYDAY! So, with that said, let me explain my situation right now......I have been VERY sick for over two weeks, and I knew that I should go see a doctor, but I could not make myself go because I knew that he was going to give me an antibiotic!! And of course, we all know what can follow an antibiotic......a damn vaginal infection!! Well, I tried to convince myself for two weeks that my body could fight off whatever it was that I had all on its own if I just gave it enough time. Then, after two long miserable weeks, I finally decided to face reality and went to the doctor. He said that I have strep, a sinus infection, an ear infection, and bronchitis. Surprise surprise....guess what he gave me....yup...a damn antibiotic!! I swear I started to feel extra burning as soon as he handed me the paper with the Rx on it!! I told him how worried I was about getting a yeast infection and asked him to also give me an Rx for Diflucan. He did, so you would think that I would be fine and not all paranoid about it. After all, if I did get an infection, all I have to do is take the pill. Sounds pretty simple and the problem will be solved.....well.....my brain does NOT agree with that logic:( My anxiety is almost unbearable!!!
