The first time I got bv it was due to having a new sex partner , he had another sex partner and I think that's what caused the bv or because his bacteria didn't react well with mine and that threw my ph off, a year later I got another new sex partner it was a one night stand and I never got bv with him. A month later I got a sex partner that i was seeing for about 4 months I would get bv with him all the time, every time I would get bv I took antibiotics and it would go away. I found out that he had a gf so I stopped seeing him. One day I had sex with a friend and got bv but this time it wouldn't go away with the antibiotics I would take antibiotics and test positive again and again. Ive used Flagyl, Clindamicyn, Boric acid suppositories, hydrogen peroxide douche etc. Nothing has relieved my symptoms. I made another appointment and asked my doctor that i wanted to try a new antibiotic called Tinidazole. Tinidazole didnt make my symptoms go away but when I went to test for bv again I tested negative. I've done so much research and i found out that theres several different types of bacteria that cause bv so in my conclusion if i tested negative for one type of bacteria that causes bv which is Gardnerella there's a possibility that i still have bv. Ive been trying to find a OB that specializes in vaginitis infections so that they can do a full bv panel that test for more than one type of bacteria. Im waiting for two more test that I requested. I asked them to test me for mycoplasma /ureaplasma because these stds have similar symptoms and can cause bv, aerobic vaginosis which can be confused with bacterial vaginosis . They havent tested for cytolytic vaginosis which is when you have too much lactobacillus bacteria. If you're having resistant bv , symptoms of bv with negative culture or recurring bv. If youre struggling with this find out whats causing your bv, ask for a full bv panel the basic bv panel only test's for gardnerella , trichomoniasis and yeast, test for mycoplasma and ureaplasma, aerobic vaginosis and cytolytic vaginosis.
