So I thought I was having a yeast infection when I noticed that the discharge was kind of yellow. I went to the doctor and it turns out I have a combination of bacterial vaginosis and a yeast infection. I'm taking the antibiotics right now (they make me so nauseous) and am saving the diflucan until the antibiotics are done.
Well, I started my period yesterday and I still have two more days of my prescription left. I've been using pads but would like to use tampons, especially b/c my boyfriend might stay over sometime. Is it okay to use tampons when treating bv?
What have your doctors told you about or how have you handled it?
It is recommended not to because the tampon can interfere with trying to stabilize the normal bacteria and ph in the vagina. I would play it safe and not where them until after you are off the antibiotics and sure that everything is better.
