Doctor I have low abdominal pain more than one month,

Resolved Question:

Hi, Doctor
I have low abdominal pain more than one month, later developing back pain and yellow discharge. I saw a doctor last Tuesday.She thought I get infection inside and prescribed metronidazole and cefalexin for one week. Pain reduces a little bit, but yellow discharge change to pink colour from Thursday night. I am quite worried. Is this infection not controlled or other problem there. When I finish the course, Do I need more antibiotics ? By the way, I also had transvaginal pelvic scan last Saturday, the right ovary expanded to 29mls by a persistent 4cm larger than expected follicle. I will have repeat scan in 6 weeks. Thank you.

Dear JA customer,
sorry to hear about your problem,
i am online and will be happy to assist you.

your symptoms are typical of pelvic inflammatory disease.
you were prescribed right antibiotics although i would like to add coverage for chalymydia like azithromycin or doxycycline. consider discussing this with your doctor.

antibiotics , usually do and hopefully will resolve the infection completely. change of color means that infection is resolving. you should be having less pain and no fever ( if you had previously).
but i would recommend adding azithro/ doxy to cover chlyamdyia which is most common cause of pelvic inflammatory disesae.

i hope this helps.

Thank you very much.
