Could this be BV OR TRICH

Posted , 3 users are following.

I had sex with a new partner unprotected(pullout) 2 weeks before my itchiness started. 2 weeks later my period started and a day after the first day of my period that is when the itchiness started. I really did not notice discharge because my period was on and I was bleeding, but as my period went away the itchiness became lessm but still there. Once I stopped bleeding, I notice that my discharge was watery and felt leaky. Each time I would go to the bathroom I noticed my underwear would be wetter than usual. I did not have a fishy odor. The odor was sour smelling, but not fishy. I went to the GYN and she did a pap and swab. When she was done, she told me that my discharge looks like BV and that she will know for sure when the labs come in. She prescribed Flagyl and my vagina is back to normal except for lower abdominal cramping is still there.

I am starting to have anxiety because I believe the guy I been with gave me TRICH despite the fact the gyno think it is BV. I need my labs for full proof because the GYNO was acting as if she was unsure. I told the guy about my experience and he said that he got tested last week and checked out fine(I am not sure if he was lieing or not).

Before I went to the GYN, I decided to go to the hospital to get it checked out because I was very concerned. The hospital DRs did a urinalysis and did not find anything. They just diagnose me with a itchy vagina.

Could the urinalysis pick up any STD infection that itches and should I trust the GYNO even if the labs did not come back yet.

Trich and BV symptoms are much alike. Everyhting on the internet is Vague. I had no burning when peeing. Just an itch and very watery discharge

    It's definitely BV I just got over it. She called me in 2 antibiotics and I used cream to get rid of itch. I was miserable hopefully you find some relief! I also soaked in Apple Cider Viniger very warm baths for 30 min every night! It helped so much!

      Hey thanks for the reply. I believe I am not coming down with an yeast infection due to the Flagyl. BV and Trich sounds so much alike. My labs hasn't come back yet and I wanted to make sure if the Dr was right with the diagnosis just by looking at my vagina. Also do you think that my BV started through sex or my period

    Did your labs come back okay? BV and Trich do seem to have similar symptoms but try not to panic until you get the results back smile

      Hi, it was actually trich. I have now been diagnosed with cervivitis and I am not sure what's causing it. All labs are normal. The ER informed that it's a bacteria but they can not find the cause. The prescribed me flagyl and so far the cramping has stopped but now I have lower back pain. I am still waiting on labs from the gyn
