Thank you for your query.
Medicines that you wrote is for bacterial and fungal infection, or at this stage you can’t be sure the women has bacterial or fungal infection. As you know many incorrect therapies ( wrong selected medication)develop resistance that lead to difficulty to treat infection. My best advice is to make antibiogram ( while laboratory will do culture test will determine exactly antibiotic ) and fungal microscopic test, additionally urine analysis and culture. After all these test you can choose right and most effective treatment.
Take care and if you have additional queries , don’t hesitate to ask.
