I had rough sex 2 days ago and caught a uti the following day, i have a massive amount of soreness and discomfort, the burning from the uti is becoming controlled with the antibiotics but the vaginal soreness continues. I can not even wear jeans as i am so sore and swollen
Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the antibiotic use is not giving relief, consider reporting your symptoms to your doctor/gynecologist and get repeat evaluation done to look for the underlying cause. Getting started on additional treatment to regulate vaginal pH might also help. Drink cranberry juice. Drink plenty of water. Avoid caffeinated and carbonated beverages. Avoid vaginal douching, or use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. If infective cause is detected, and if you are sexually active, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection, and avoid having intercourse while being on treatment.
