What causes cramping in the abdomen?

I've been cramping for two days now.... Originally I thought it was from constipation but I've made a few bowel movements and still having the same level of cramping. My vulva and vagina started itching last night. Today, I started spotting and then became heavier so I used a tampon. When I removed the tampon. It was covered with white tissue with some blood. I've had 2 bacterial infections (bacterial vaginosis, mycoplasma) and I finished the antibiotics they prescribed me the day before the cramping started. I'm planning to call the gynecologist tomorrow to make an appointment. Could you please ease my mind?

welcome to Health care magic.
1.It seems like, your antibiotic treatment has not working well, if it is not reduced compared to the day you have started treatment.
2.If you feel its getting better, then continue the treatment, further you may feel better.
3.If other way that no change, then when you see your doctor, you might get change of antibiotics.
4.If your symptoms persists, if you are my patient i would have ask for a swab to find out the pathogen ( after stopping the antibiotics ), there after treatment.
5.However, it needs medical attention,follow your doctor and take proper treatment and care.
Hope it helps you. Wish you a good health.
Anything to ask ? do not hesitate. Thank you.
