Cottage Cheese anyone?

Did I mention in my last couple of posts that John and I were put on extremely strong antibiotics for three weeks? The idea was just in case I might have some kind of low grade bacterial infection of the endometrium. So we had to take two weeks of flagyl and three weeks of klacid, to run concurrently. The flagyl was particularly nasty. We both noticed that if you didn't eat before taking it, you end of with a dose of the shakes. I also had an extremely nasty bitter taste in my mouth, pretty much all the time. So I was really glad when I had taken my last flagyl dose last Friday morning.
However, worse was yet to come. By Sunday morning I noticed evidence of a nasty yeast infection in my undies (aka thrush, hence the photo, gettit?). YUCK!! So now as well as swallowing the following every day - two klacid, two pyrodoxene (vit b6), two fertility plus supplements (the smelliest most vile supplements known to womankind), four probiotic tablets, one calcium supplement, one fish oil supplement and one Vit D supplement - I now have the added joy of canesten pessaries and cream.
Can a woman's life get any better?

We do have it great, don't we? It really is just one thing after another with the lot of us isn't it. We can't catch a break. Props on turning xbox's stomach.

You see it wouldn't have been so bad with out the title ... Hope you get some relief (and don;t wear tights!).

And they expect us to be attractive to our husbands under these circumstances...

Umm cottage cheese I can relate. That is what came out of me after I was instructed to use that flagyl stuff as a vaginal pessery everyday for a week (to clear up a chronic infection) a few years ago

I can only try to offer some help by saying 'lucky your flagyl tablet is oral'.

We took these just before my successful cycle. Only lasted a week though - my stomach couldn't handle it. It was the only new thing we did that cycle. Hope it's all worth it!

X box - hee hee, I managed to gross you out twice in one week!

Kim - We sure do.

WFI - Apologies for the title. It's cleared up now, thank goodness.

Dr Spouse - I know, a woman's lot, eh?

PIB - Ewwww, that sounds horrendous!

Feebee - that sounds encouraging! It would be so worth it all if this worked for us too.
