About 4 months ago I started seeing this new guy. SInce I have an IUD and we are monogamous, we do not use condoms and he finished inside me. Around that same time I went to the doctor because I had a frequent urge to pee and thought I had a UTI. The doctor told me that I had BV. Before this I had only ever had BV once, and it ended up clearing up on its own.
But this time I took the oral antibiotics they gave me and continued on with my life. I thought the BV went away but I felt the symptoms coming back, and even worse this time since I was having an itch and sex was becoming painful.
So I went back to the doctor again and they gave me the same medicine. This time they told me not to have sex for the week I am on the medicine and to use condoms for a month since my uterine wall needs time to rebuild itself and the sperm was not going to help that. I tried to follow those instructions as best possible, but me and my boyfriend really hate condoms so we tried to use them most of the time and just pull out otherwise (I think we may have had a two or three slip ups throughout that month where he finished in me on accident).
Before the month was even over I could feel that BV still lingering around so I went back to the doctor. This time I had also been experiencing other issue. I think due to the oral antibiotics I was having GI issues- which is common for me. On top of that I had began spotting a little- which was EXTREMELY alarming to me because I had not had a period in over 2 years due to my IUD. When I used to get a period I had bad back pain which I began having now as well. Anyway the doctor gave me the supository antibotics instead this time, and after taking those my pain has gotton even worse. I also have been taking probiotics for over a month now and they appearently have not helped.?
So I am writing here because the urge to have to pee is now so intense it keeps me up at night, and the back pain is almost unbearable. I just peed and there was specks of red on the paper when I wiped, almost like spots of dried up blood or something. I have never seen anything like this before.
I would like to mention that my boyfriend also was having some issues as well. He said he had pain when he ejaculates so his doctor gave him some antibiotics, but he still has a slight throbbing going on.This makes me beleive that there may be something other than BV going on since BV can not be spread back and forth and shouldnt affect men.
Does anyone have any advice on this? Do you think I may have anything other than BV? Im worried because of the lack of knowledge the doctors I have seen have about BV, and how wishy washy the infor I have read online is. Thanks in advance <3
