User :   Hi I'm 23 years old (female) in good health. I was on 4 different antibiotics for about 4-5 weeks for pneumonia. I have been off antibiotics for 2.5 weeks now. I think I may have a yeast infection, I took diflucan about 20 hours ago. I had the redness, irritating itching problem and a little bit of white discharge. The discharge does not remind me of cottage cheese like most things say, it's just a slightly thick white discharge with no odor. Is that normal?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   Let me read your query
User :   Hi

User :   can i also ask, is it normal to cramp about 5-6 days before a period? i usually cramp only a couple days before but since my birth control pills aren't as effective with the antibioitics i thought maybe that was normal.
