Suffering from urinary and vaginal infections

Resolved Question:

Dear Doctor, I am a 32 years old female with average body build up. From the last 15 days, I have been suffering from fever, weakness and shivering. After that my BP and sugar levels also reached lower counts. But I don’t have any pain, swelling or irritation in my urinary or vaginal areas. Doctor prescribed some antibiotics for the pus cells seen in urine. In 8 days I returned normal. Then I went to my gynec for scanning of my uterus. She told that everything is normal and it might be some vaginal infection. She also gave me 2 tablets, for 7 days. But still, I am getting fever and shivering. Is this normal? What are the steps to be taken to prevent a possible outbreak anymore? Please help me.

Thanks for your query and concern. Vaginitis or vaginal infections are caused by a number of causes. Fungal or yeast infections are caused by a yeast called Candida and can be treated using an antibiotic like fluconazole or using some anti-fungal creams. Vaginitis caused by bacteria is called bacterial vaginosis, which can be treated with antibiotic- metronidazole. Other organisms that cause infection are herpes, campylobacter, parasites and those occur due to improper hygiene practices.  Your doctor can easily find out the issue and can give you exact diagnosis and treatment. Treatment is given according to the diagnosis. Consult him again or some another doctor and get well soon.
