Back in January, I suffered from some slight burning while urinating and felt the urge to go very frequently. I visited my primary care provider, tested for UTI, given antibiotics and the problem was gone. Simple, right? Wrong. Shortly after finishing my antibiotics, I felt very itchy in my vulvar area and noticed it burned after sex. I've had a yeast infection before, and given that I just finished antibiotics, I assumed I had contracted a yeast infection and took monistat just from the drug store. Usually, Monistat clears up my yeast infections with no problems, but this time I've felt no relief. I went back to my primary care provider, and this time was given a pelvic exam. Was tested positive for BV (I was tested for yeast, trich, gnorreha, and chlymidya, all negative. I have only ever had one sexual partner who is also negative of all stds) they gave me a round of Flagyl, 14 pills to take twice a day for a week. I followed all instructions and STILL had the same itch and burning symptoms. I then decided to visit my OBGYN, who performed a pelvic exam and found that I had a yeast infection, I was given 3 diflucan pills to take every three days. I did that exactly as directed and STILL no relief. I visited the doctor yet again, and had another pelvic exam only to find that everything came back normal, I supposedly have no infections or stds. I still have the classic foul odor, discharge, itching, and burning after sex, yet they're telling me I don't have BV? What could this be/what could help me find relief?
