Is this urge to urinate likely the yeast infection still??

Welcome to healthcare magic.
I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns.

From your notes it appears that you are having persistent/ recurring yeast infection as a result of taking antibiotics. First it is important that you are examined by doctor and vaginal swab tested to confirm that it is yeast infection only. Once confirmed take Diflucan 150 mg weekly but y mouth or canesten vaginal suppository 500 mg once weekly for 1-2 months ( until symptoms subside).

Urge to urinate could be due to the yeast infection.
Drink plenty of water. If the urge symptom does not subside with two weeks of treatment for vaginal infection you need to get your urine culture sensitivity test done (as it suggest persistent urinary

I recently went to the gynecologist and was treated with antibiotics for a vaginal infection. I was also told that I could use rephresh to help insure my vagina was a good ph level which would combat any possible bad tastes or smells for which I was concerned because I just enetered into a relationship with a new guy and want to be healthy, smelling and tasting good. I completed the antibiotics, took the extra pills (cant remeber what it was called at the moment) one at the beginning and one at the end to combat a yeast infection from the antibiotics. Used rephresh after having sex with my boyfriend, noticed a few days later that there was a white discharge coming out of my vagina. I looked at it closely and smelled it and it did not have a foul smell at all. But I assumed that I had a yeast infection so began a one day treatment of monistat, then read that one day might not be strong enough and might just make the bacteria more resistant so I purchased a three day and started that. Then read that rephresh will result in leaving a whitish discharge from the vagina as the cells slough off and it is nothing to worry about. I am afraid I may have treated a yeast infection when I did not have one. So I just rinsed out my third day of treatment of monistat with hot water and tried to clean myself out thoroughly, so I am not continuing with a unneeded chemical. I m wondering should I use rephresh again now to make sure I get my vagina back to a healthy ph before I see my boyfriend this weekend?

What would cause these symptoms.... pain during intercourse , fishy odor especially after intercourse, lower abdominal pressure constantly. Discharge is normal looking except there is a lot of it during intercourse. Periods are normal. Bladder infection about 6 weeks ago, which is seemingly resolved with antibiotics. Yeast infection about 10 weeks ago, resolved with suppository. No pain on urination or bowel movements. No itchiness or burning either.
