Is there a doctor in the CAFE???

Okay, does anyone know what medicine is safe to take for a bacteria infection(vaginal)?????... Doctor gave me Flagyl..but dnt think thats safe....BREASTFEEDING
Back up story, about a week, almost two weeks ago, I fooled around with an ex, after like a day. I started having like this foul odor....ewww YES. We did have unprotected sex, yes STUPID ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..I let him take the condom off..eww..why..why..Okay, he called me like a couple of days ago and I told him.He said it was because he was uncircumsized...WTF.AND SAID thats how I got the infection, thats what he said. But I believe, its because of his girlfriend, that he says is an ex, is NASTY.Meaning that she has an infection and not checking herself. Well I have went to the doctor, but he didn't know what to give me because am BREASTFEEDING!!!..HELP!..I feel really stupid!

  • "This medication passes into breast milk. Therefore, breast-feeding is not recommended while using this drug. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding"

    Call your doctor.

  • maybe you should stop breast feeding for the time being, take the meds, get what ever that is cleared up (god bless you! i am so sorry!) then continue on breast feeding. i wish i could help more (im pregnant with my first) but i would think getting that checked out and cleared up first is pretty important...unless you can find some meds to take that is safe while beast feeding...maybe get a second opinion from another doctor.

    i am soooo sorry! good luck! i know it must suck

  • You will need to "pump and dump" until this is cleared up.
