Most definitely, in fact, many antibiotics will cause yeast infections. The vaginal infection can further irritate the urinary meatus (opening where urine comes out) and cause burning and UTI symptoms even though the infection is gone. Call your family or Primary Care Dr and tell him you have been on antibiotics for a UTI and now you are having vaginal itching and discharge so he can give you some medication like Diflucan to kill the yeast (Candida Albicans). You may need one now to control symptoms and another after you finish antibiotics, unless you are done with abx (antibiotics) then you can just take one. There is also the option of getting Monistat cream OTC and using it as directed. Creams are a little more messy and take longer to work. One pill (or two if you are still using abx) will knock the yeast infection right out and not only does it help kill it vaginally, it helps to eliminate it from the digestive tract.
Be sure to wipe front to back always after using the bathroom. UTI's are commonly caused by E.Coli and the prime source for that is your digestive tract. As women our urinary meatus is anatomically close to the anus and bacteria from around the anus can be dragged right to the meatus which can migrate up into the bladder and cause infection. Also drink plenty of WATER! If you got a UTI, it is also likely that you are not drinking enough-water is best. Iced tea, hot tea and coffee doesnt count-they dehydrate more than they replace. Urine helps to flush those little "bugs" out of the urinary tract. If you are dehydrated (as most people are), you dont urinate much and this gives bacteria plenty of time to migrate right up into the urinary tract and set up shop(cause infection). Wear cotton panties so the area "breathes" Be sure to wash the genitalia and surrounding perineal areas daily with soap and water to decrease bacterial load (showering or bathing daily is essential). If UTI's are re-occuring, be sure to bathe prior to sex and always, always, always pee right after sex. Same reason, to flush out any bacteria brought into the urinary tract by sexual friction and fore play. That is part of my UTI 101 course! lol If you are troubled by recurrent UTI's send me a PM and we will review to find the causative factors. I'm a pro when it comes to UTIs (and candida/yeast infections) having had them most of my life. If you get recurrent yeast infections, I have a wonderful home treatment for them that works better than Monistat or even Diflucan (at least vaginally) so just PM me if you are interested.
Yes. I had both a yeast infection and a UTI at the same time. Just my luck right? The doctor prescribed me fluconazole for my yeast and ciprofloxacin HCL for the UTI. I thought I had an STD because of these symptoms combined. Horrible pain!! Itching, burning, and pain in my groin area. I couldn't even sit or sleep. Smh. I'm better now.
