    Chronic BV. What Ive learned (all in one place)

    As many of you here, I have suffered from chronic BV for years, four years actually.

Yet if you

    Chronic Vaginal E Coli infections

    Hi everyone,  So the last few times I was treated for BV (in the summer of 2014), it turns out once the cultures came back, that I had E Coli and not Gardnerella.

    Itcy vaginal sore? *picture*

    Ok so I noticed this sort of laceration last night on the inner of my vag. And it doesn't particularly hurt, but it itches like hell and I'm discharging very clear and watery discharge.
