Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. It is possible that the infection that you have attempted to treat has infected the vaginal canal as well the urethra and bladder. To treat this you will need to be examined by a doctor and start a course of oral antibiotics in order to completely clear this infection. Such infections are caused by sexually transmitted infections contracted during unprotected sexual intercourse, or due to hormonal changes that increase the susceptibility of infections of the vagina, urinary tract, and bladder. Please see your doctor.
