Use Of Anti-fungal Drugs During Menstruation?
Evening. R nIntroduce me Riska. R nI want to ask for the use of the TRICHODAZOL PLUS Ovule drug, can you use it during your period or not? R nI happen to be on medication for 7 days and by chance today is the latest drug use and it turns out that I have menstruation. r nPlease explain r nThank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In Trichodazol plus ovules, it contains anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, anti-bacterial substances, namely metronidazole and nystatin. This drug is often prescribed by doctors to treat vaginal discharge that is suspected of being Candida sp, Trichomonas vaginalis, or several other microorganisms. Usually, vaginal discharge due to this cause will be thick white, yellowish, greenish, smells bad, and causes very intense itching.
The medicine you mentioned is used by inserting it directly into the vagina. In this way, it is hoped that the growth of microorganisms that cause abnormal vaginal discharge can be inhibited, so that vaginal health is more maintained. As for its use, it is generally carried out for 7 consecutive days.
If during that period of use you experienced menstruation, then you can continue to use the drug as directed by your previous doctor. This will not necessarily reduce the effectiveness of the drug. However, you should avoid using tampons during menstruation, as this can reduce drug absorption. It would be better if you collect your menstrual blood with a product in the form of a pad or duk so as not to interfere with the absorption of the drug.
Not only using drugs, abnormal vaginal discharge also needs to be addressed by improving the cleanliness of the vaginal area as well as changing lifestyles to make it healthier. You also need to take the following steps to optimize healing:
Clean your genitals regularly while bathing, after urinating, and after sex
Minimize sexual intercourse first while still in the treatment period, and as long as your vaginal discharge is still not healed, to minimize the potential for transmission
Always wear loose, clean underwear and pants
Do not use vaginal fragrance products carelessly
Nor is wiping the vagina with a dirty towel or poor quality water
Also consume foods rich in antioxidants
If by using doctor's medicine and routinely undergoing natural treatment as mentioned above, your vaginal discharge has not improved, don't hesitate to go back to your doctor or skin specialist to get further treatment, ok?
I hope this helps.
