Hi gals..Just wanted to share some info with you. I'm not trying to suggest that a quick trip to the doctor will turn out the same for all, but you might find this interesting.On January 23, I went to my doctor with pain in my lower back. He checked my urine, and said I had blood showing in it. Naturally, I thought..OH NO! Another Kidney stone! He said it was possible, and he would go ahead and treat me with an antibiotic called Levaquin. He put me on 500mg. once a day for ten days. I went back February 21, and no sign of the blood, plus the back pain had subsided.I had been treated numerous times with Flagl, numerouse vaginal antibiotics, and even tried natural products. Nothing would stop it! I was having pain during intercourse and then having an odor a day afterwards. It was driving me crazy! I finally gave up and against the doctor's advice, I would douche after intercourse. (He doesn't think it is wise to wash out natural secretions) Back to the point...three weeks after taking the Levaquin, I noticed the problem had disappeared! It has been almost two months now, and no re-occurrence.This class of drug kills certain bacteria by stopping the production of essential proteins needed by the bacteria to survive. I am very fortunate that I have found a treatment. Hope someone else can use this info.
