Question: abdominal pain, sore vagina
|mmc1358 - Sun Nov 04, 2007 2:46 pm||
I'm a 20 year old female. I went to the doctor back in Sept, because I found out my ex boyfriend had and infection and I started feeling like my vagina was sore. I told the doctor the symptoms I was having and that my ex had an infection. She tested me for chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis, which all came back negative. Since the results wouldnt have come in until a week later she put me on antibotics for all 3. After finishing the antibotics, I felt fine for about a week then it all came back. I went back to the doctor (and thats when she told me everything came back negative) and explained my symptoms and told her I recently starting having vaginal discharge which was white and clumpy. She said that its probably a yeast infection and I got more medicine for that (she didn't do any tests or anything). While doing the whole monistat thing, I drank alcohol on 2 different occasions. I told my mom the problems I was having and she said that since I drank the medicine wouldn't work. I tried it again, and now I'm having abdominal pains every now and then. The only thing I could find out about my ex boyfriends infection was that it started with an "o". His mother is a nurse, and told me that she doesnt think that I could have gotten that from him. I made an appt. with a different doctor, but its not till late november. So Please help me figure out whats wrong with me!

To my knowledge there is no interaction between miconazole (the medicine in monistat) and ethanol. It should still be effective if alcohol is taken.
There are many possible causes of abdominal pain, including viral infections, GI tract irritation and gynecological causes. It sounds like you have been appropriately treated for STD's so it is less likely to be this. (I can't come up with what the infection starting with an "o" would be.)
Follow up with your doctor will be important.
