In the end I told him that I have Ciprofloxacin, and Levofloxacin, and more Flagyl on hand. He said I should take 500mg of Levofloxacin and Flagyl every day for 7 days and that I have prostatitis.??

My Obgyn took me off of birth control pills in August because she thought that was what was causing this, but I still have the episodes and they are getting closer and closer together.

I can not funtion my normal like and every time it goes away I hope it's for good, but then it comes back and I can not figure out why.
As I could no longer wait for the gastro appointements, I went online and bought broad spectrum antibiotic againts anaerobes, i.e. metronidazole.
