  • 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.

  • 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. It's amazing to me how I can go to a doctor, who will tell me first that it’s just a “nuisance” problem, and when I go back he’ll tell me he's never had anyone who didn't respond to this ____ treatment. Yet...

  • Question about Bacterial Vaginitis with bumps

    I have been diagnosed with BV and have to take flagyl. The pain that I have with it is terrible. When I urinate the bumps burn. I think its because I am irritated. How can slow up the pain while I urinate? When I wear panties the bumps are irritated. What should I do?
