It’s been awhile since I’ve had one (thankfullY) but I don’t recall any pain anywhere.  I just remember really annoying itchiness.  As far as the pain you are having, if it’s been going on awhile or really intense call your doctor.  Hope you feel better soon.

Sounds like a trip to the doctor is in order. Unfortunately, when your reproductive system is involved it’s generally a good idea to be more cautious than not. Certain infections and different types of bacteria can cause infertility when untreated so it’s best to get a professional to run some tests so that you can get proper treatment. If you have pelvic pain you may have an infection that has spread to your bladder or kidneys. Do you have a fever?

Could definitely be one if you just finished some antibiotics.  You can try treating it OTC with monostat or whatever your preference is, but you may just wanna head into the doc to have them check you out and give you PO meds instead.  

Also, yeast infections are more often itchy rather than painful – pelvic pain points more toward a gonorrhea or chlamydia picture, so you may wanna get a urine test for those while you’re there or if the monostat doesn’t help.  

For discharge, yeast infections usually give a cheese-like discharge, so that can clue you in.  

Hope you figure it out and feel better!

@SweetRose2011: I would definitely recommend trying to get to an internal medicine/ family practice/ OBGYN doctor if you’re able to.  If nothing else, you’ll be able to see the same person if you need a follow up visit. 

Who ever you see though… be sure to take the name (and strength/directions/day supply) of all the antibiotics you were on recently with you.  If there is a bacterial infection, it’s important that they pick an antibiotic that covers different bacteria than the drugs you were on recently. 

Yeast infections can occur after taking antibiotics.  You’ll need an antifungal medication if a yeast infection is suspected.

I hope you feel better soon!  Any problems in that area just so unpleasant!

@SweetRose2011: I think I also wrote in your other post a homeopathic treatment that I had been told about by a naturopathtic doctor. Wouldn’t hurt to try.. You can look up more details about tea tree oil online.

@SweetRose2011: It’s worked for me in the past that is why I suggested it. When I was younger I was prone to yeast infections until I started being really proactive about them. Sometimes you can’t help them if you’ve been on antibiotics. Start eating more yogurt, make sure you pee after intercourse every time, and you can also look into buying some probiotics (live bacteria capsules) from your local health food store.

I would still be concerned about the pelvic pain, however. Generally, that is more typical of an internal bacterial infection rather than the fungal infection that is a yeast infection. A fever is a good indication of an infection, so it’s surprising you don’t have one. Unfortunately symptoms of different conditions are often similar so we can all guess what you have, but only a doctor with the help of a lab will be able to determine the real cause.

I haven’t taken antibiotics in over 5 years (due to being a freak about prescription medication and only taking natural supplements), but when I would finish the antibiotic I would immediately start taking probiotics. The best kind are the kind that need refridgerated and have at least 5-10 billion units per pill. After about 2 days of taking the probiotic, the yeast infection will be clearing up nicely.

It’s also good to take probiotics as a daily supplement anyways. It pretty much prevents yeast infections completely, in addition to other health benefits.

Antiobiotics kill ALL bacteria, the good and the bad. The probiotics replace the good.

Hope this helps.
