Is It Safe To Take Nystatin Into The Vagina When You Have Vaginal Discharge?
Hello, I was diagnosed with IMS (gonorrhea). Complaints discharge in the vagina and itchy and stinky, my vaginal discharge also clot. I have been married for 2 years and have not been blessed with children whether this is influential because of my illness. After checking the vaginal discharge the results are diplococus + pmn + candida +. The doctor gave me azithromicyn antibiotics and cefixime trihydrate in a single dose. 1 month Later I checked again the bacteria were still there. Then the doctor gave me nystatin tablets which were inserted into the vagina, and Bimaflox500. Is antibiotics safe for my uterus, which has no children? And are antibiotics good for my complaints? Thanks.
