If you feel your symptoms have worsened with the medication, please report this to your consultant immediately and get a drug reaction excluded. If drug reaction is excluded, it is only that the infection is causing the symptoms. Even with appropriate treatment, it takes at least 3-4 doses of the antibiotic to show relief clinically. If you have not had a vaginal and cervical swab, please ask for it. Please get urinalysis also. Maintain proper genital hygiene. Do not douche. Wish you good health.
