I have ecoli vaginitis will it cure itself if I stopped antibiotics?

I have been suffering from ecoli vaginitis for few months. I first noticed some greenish vaginal discharge after a course of augmentin (around 10days) for theUTI. After that, the doctor did a vaginal swab for me(the report said its high vaginal swab, but the doctor did not use the speculum), the report showed ecoli and candida. Candida was then treated, but ecoli remained after a course of flagyl and levofloxacin. The second report also showed it was resistant to flagyl, levofloxacin and another first line antibiotics eg augmentin and ampicillin. Then I took a course of septrin, the last report showed it is also resistant to septrin but don’t know why it is sensitive to augmentin again, no clue cell with trace gram +ve and -ve rods, 1+ wbc and epithelial cells. The doctor advised me just leave it alone because she predicted ecoli will get resistant again after another course of oral antibiotics. I don’t have much symptoms except some on and off abd pain, vaginal discomfort and discharge. But I am so afraid and reluctant to have sex since I am worried having sex will make it worse and cause PID and also worried about the future pregnancy. I have an assumption that if ecoli infection is caused by the lowered number of lactobacilli, is it possible it will get cured by self if I stopped antibiotics and the normal flora reestablishes my self?

hi
if you are healthy and do have a good immunity,then definitely such low grade e coli infections can get cured by itself. a good vaginal hygiene,abstinence from sex and healthy food,rich in vitamin c and proteins is recommended. local intra vaginal antifungal pessaries will work wonders in you.
thanks

HI
E COLI VAGINITIS IS DIFFICULT TO BE CURED COMPLETELY WITHOUT MEDICINES. ESPECIALLY IN YOUR CASE,AS THE E COLI STRAIN SEEMS TO BE ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANT . SUCH STRAINS ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO GET AFFECTED BY REGULAR MEDICINES. YOU MAY NEED A LONGER COURSE OF ANTIBIOTICS.

hello there
from the report u have posted, it feels that e coli is present ,but in negligible amounts . you should neglect it and concentrate more on maintaining a proper vaginal hygiene. wash you private parts everytime you use the loo. eat healthy food and increase vitamin c intake

Your immunity must be boosted first … Have a healthy diet rich in vitamins..eat honey (bee) daily in the morning..swallow a garlic cap daily.
Then your body will be able to resist them better..
Stay on a strong broad spectrum for a longer time..avoid sex..keep area clean …then give your body a chance to fight it…
