Hello ma'am.

It appears that you are sufferring from a recurrent infection or one that has not been treated adequately. In all such cases it is best to conduct a culture examination to determine the exact infection and the best and most effective treatment options available.

Also, during the treatment phase and at least 7 days after the last course of medication, please avoid sexual contact of all forms. Also, it is best to use a more potent and higher grade of medication and for a longer duration than usual to avoid recurrences. It is also good to look for other sources or causes for the infection as if this is present it will have to be addressed.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
