Brief Answer: Following suggestions to your queries... Detailed Answer: Hi, I have gone through your query carefully and understood your concerns. I am sorry for the situation you are in. Having inserted Tampax inside you for 3 weeks is long enough to develop urinary tract infection and vaginal infection, for which your doctor has prescribed antibiotic course. I also advise to: - keep a good hygiene of your genitalia; avoid hot water or other irritant soaps/gels - can discuss with your doctor to start taking local (vaginal) ovules for vaginal infection - drink more water - take magnesium/zinc citrate to optimize urine pH that will help ease the symptoms - I also advise my patients to use herbal mixture teas for urinary tract infection Everything will get to normal again, but need time. Wish fast recovery! Dr.Sejdini
