Hey Everybody!! I haven't been here in a while but I have a couple of questions I would like some opinions on. First off, I had been diagnosed with Trichimonas, I had never had symptoms before so it came as a shock when my Dr told me. Anyway, I went through my treatment and everything was fine, later that weekend I started to have symptoms of the infection but they went away after a week or so. I don't really know if it was the reaction to the antibiotics or what. Any way I waited a week before I had sex again, Bf used condom but it broke and he went inside me. Last couple of days I have been extremely tired,having off and on mild cramps, hot flashes and minor headaches. My question is do you think its a side effect from the medicine or could it be something else? Also can you get pregnant so soon after being treated with antbiotics?

Antibiotics definitely don't prevent pregnancy so yes, you could be pregnant. As to your other symptoms-that could be related to the infection, the medication, a new cold or flu, another condition, pregnancy. It is impossible to guess.

Ok, my question to you is was your b/f treated too? Antibiotics can increase risk of getting pregnant if you are on the pill. About having cramps, I haven't a clue. Being tired, hot and having headache I can understand if you have an infection again.

BF was treated also.I am not on any form of birth control. I think its a lil PMS, I am having the symptoms I usually get before my period. My knees ache, I have an increase in appetite,I get really tired and sleepy during the day, and I can't sleep at night. My period is due on the 13th so I guess everything is falling in line. Turns out the antibiotics gave me a yeast infection, with all of that going on I really don't think I could be pregnant.

Yes could very well be PMS. I had it really bad every month before my period. The day before I would start I would get very lethargic and depressed and hurt all over. Also felt swollen all over. I had a hysterectomy around 38 yrs of age and that has really helped along with some good anti-depressants. Hope you feel better soon.
