I've recently been diagnosed with BV 2 weeks after coming off antibiotics to treat my UTI. I originally went to get checked for STI's as I had recently had a new boyfriend (sex partner). Thankfully I was clear of any STI's but was given antibiotics to treat the BV. I had a foul smell for a couple of weeks, I could even smell it through my trousers at work. The discharge was grey coloured and what seemed to be constant. The antibiotics eventually cleared up the discharge and smell. The irritation, itchiness and discomfort began to clear as well... To what I thought anyway. A month into the new year with all these vaginal complications, I decided it's time to be sexually active with my boyfriend again, like we used to be. But the pain was unbearable! Burning, itching! And since then it's been the same.
I've been sexually active since I was 14 (I'm aware that this is a very young age) I am now 19. I've never had an STI, I have very few sexual partners in the past and BV is now ruining my sex life with my partner.
I've read things about different vitamins, home remedies including milk and garlic, medications, creams... But I'd like to know what really cures this horrific infection.
And if any one is going through it too, I am so sorry and feel your pain completely.
Thank you very much for any help
