24/7 Coughing

I have been coughing non stop for the past 2weeks. I can't sleep, cause it's even worst at night. I can't talk over the phone without going into a coughing state.
Please tell me what I can do. I have been to the docter and he said i must drink antibiotics which I cant cause I am on the pill. Don't want to get pregnant.

Dear Coughing Queen
Sometimes one have no other choice than using antibiotics - you can always use extra protection like a condom if you don't want to fall pregnant.

Ek het ' n irriterende droee aanhoudende hoes. Ek voel glad nie siek nie. Dit hou al letterlik vir maande en maande aan. Geen benoudheid nie. Soms, baie min, wit slym wat opgehoes word. Ek drink redelik water wanneer die hoesbuie my tref.
Ek het nog nooit ' n dokter gaan sien nie.
Dink jy dat dit ' n allergie is, of sal dit beter wees om ' n dokter te gaan sien.

You can use a condom if you dont want to get pregnant. Thats generally what every other woman on the pill does if she needs antibiotics. Rather take the meds than put it off.
