I have been to the doctor and got a full STD scan and all of it came back negative apart from e.coli.
They prescribed Amoxicillin which apparently my bacteria is sensitive too (they did an antibiogram). BUT all over the internet i have seen nothing but warnings to not take antibiotics, that it would make the problem worse, that it would come back in force. Now i have had yeast infections also in the past (quite severe actually) so i'm deathly afraid to take it and have it be useless or worse cause me to get an yeast infection. I should mention i have tried internet remedies: probiotics daily (of l.rhamnasus and l.reuteri), improving my digestion, taking d-mannose...and they seem to fail.
The only thing that helps is baking soda washes. I also heard of putting probiotic ovules inside (i even bought a pack of them) but i am afraid that will make the itch worse.
Tell me: did antibiotics work for any of you/anyone you know? If i take them should my partner take them too (i highly doubt BV is not sexually transmissible since i seem to get it after sex with a condom even)?
i don't have any discernible odor (i had one single day of unpleasant smell in the last months) and discharge is in small concentrations and gelatinous and kind of gray-ish white...but the itchiness inside and outside is my biggest problem.
any advice would be welcomed.
