Ive never had a yeast infection before and now I think I might have one but Im really not sure. I had strep throat a few weeks ago and was prescribed amoxicillin for 10 days. The past few days after sex there has been a slight burning when I pee and a an itchiness during and right after sex. However Im not itchy throughout the day, only right after sex for maybe 20 minutes. Could this be a yeast infection?
If so, whats the best thing for me to do? I really dont want to go to the doctor on Monday as I have limited time off.

Call the doctor and see if they will just call in something for you. Otherwise, try something over the counter.

yes, antibiotics can give you a yeast infection. Treat it before it gets worse. Not to be Too Much Information but you can get a nasty discharge and that’s really yucky.

I had my first last summer as total surprise. At first it freaked me out, but I went to CVS and got the one-day treatment from Monistat (the brand which my mother uses when it happens to her). It might burn a bit while it’s dissolving, but it’s over quickly and worked perfectly for me.
I’m didn’t have any burning while peeing, though. That reminds me more of a UTI, so drink plenty of water. Hope This Helps.

yes it could be. I get one like every time i take an antibiotic. You can go to a CVS or something and get one of those vagisil screening tests and it will tell you what you have. if it’s your first one, you might need to see the doc to make sure.

If you get one of the over the counter ones like Monistat…make sure you do 3 days or longer…my dr insists that nothing can get cured in 1 day!

I don’t get them that often, but I definitely prefer using the prescribed pill you can get from your doctor instead of the cream, it’s such a pain to use. But I do agree with jen24au, you should get the vaginal screening test first and make sure it’s a yeast infection, you can use that info when you call your doctor and ask him/her to prescribe the pill for you.
