Yes...: ...As long as you take the right antibiotic for the right kind of discharge. The two most common causes are gonorrhea and chlamydia.

A 35-year-old member asked:

Just started birth control again. There is clearish fluid discharging from breasts. What could it be?

Probably nothing: Birth control pills are known to cause hormonal resets in a woman's body. Breast is hormone regulated organ, so that is no surprise you are reacting the way you are. Chances are with the next cycle you may not have any, although, i did have patients who were lactating all along. In that case, i'd check prolactin level and rule out other causes for lactation.

No: Commonly used antibiotics for UTI don't stop you from getting pregnant. In fact, some women on birth control pills get pregnant when they take antibiotics as antibiotics can affect birth control pill effectiveness.

What to do for allergic reaction to antibiotic ? Finished course. Just wait.

Antihistamine: A short course of antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will help. It is advisable to have your doctor classify the allergic reaction and document in your medical record the type of antibiotic which caused the reaction. Please, always follow directions listed on over the counter meds and better yet double check with a pharmacist.
