Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The abdominal pain and the vaginal discharge that you describe could indicate vaginal infection, cervicitis, endometritis, PID, etc. Opportunistic infections are possible after antibiotic use as they eliminate both harmful bacteria and natural flora of the body. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation, clarification and assistance. Taking probiotics should also help to resolve your symptoms. Look out for development of any new symptoms. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid use of tight fitting clothes. Avoid sweat accumulation in the area. 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. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
