Advice...

Hello! please can someone give me some advice/ share if they have had a similar experience. So I believe i have BV, however, the only symptom is the odor. But, the odor recently hasnt been noticeable only after I urinate, then it becomes very strong. I dont know whether thats normal or maybe i have another problem. Please help.

    is the odor fishy?

    I have struggled with the same thing for years. have you been tested? whenever I get tested I'm negative for BV and everything else. Yet when I take antibiotics my symptoms go away/improve. I got tested again yesterday for everything. Also had a smear as it was well overdue.

      Yes it is:( I have been tested and was told that I do have a strain of bacteria but it doesnt usually cause any BV symptoms. And like you whenever I take antibiotics it gets much better then comes back shortly after. Im so scared it will never go away coz even antibiotics only seem to be temporary 😦

      😦

      it's the most frustrating thing ever and I feel your pain. I just bought the canestest by canesten and even that showed up as no BV or thrush. Probiotics help for me but they aren't a cure and theyre expensive. I know exactly how you feel, Im scared that it will never go away but also scared that it could be something more serious.

    Once i found out I had trichomoniassis , a parasite std that caused a strong fish smell . I had to ask for the test specifically . Not trying to scare you , just wanted to share my story in case it could be helpful . I cleared it easily with pills . I also had a partner who caused me to have an off smell in my vagina because he was sleeping around . We woman are more sensitive to mixing like that . Although i have no idea if youre even sexually active . I tried everything to make it better but breaking up with him was what helped . I used douche and it made it worse . I hope you can figure it out girl , i feel your frustration . I hear yogurt on a tampon can be multi purpose to put good bacteria back into us , also eating it .
