Painful BV!

Posted , 9 users are following.

Am I the only one who has this symptom?

In addition to the usual symptoms, smelly discharge, my bv is usually so painful. This happens 24/7. It's usually triggered by me passing urine and then it never stops until I take painkillers. This is the worst symptom for me.

I've taken all sorts of antibiotics but nothing clears it. But really the pain debilitating and I can barely function.

    I had painful urination for almost a year with BV. However, i was tested for Ureaplasma/Mycoplasma Hominis a year in and was positive. I was given doxyclyne for 14 days. Which did not eradicate it. I then was put on Levaquin. I have not had painful urination since. If you have not been tested for that. I suggest you do to rule that out from causing all your problems.

      no im still suffering from bv. I never had BV till i had a new partner. Ive been misdiagnosed for so long about a year and put on so many antibiotics for BV. Which i firmly believe it was the ureaplasma causing it at first. However, now all the antibiotics i have took it messed my stomach bacteria up. Now, im believing i have to change my diet to replenish it back. I noticed i had the stomach bug for 5 days so i can barely eat and i noticed the discharge cleared up. soon as i started eating sugar and not great food. i got moist again and it burned during sex.

    Yes, I have this too. I have taken several rounds of antibiotics which took the smell away. However the pain is still there (burning skin and shooting pains inside the canal). I have found hot baths with sea salt and baking soda has helped a lot.

    I have asked several doctors to test for ureaplasma however they all act like it is a waste of time and not really a thing so they will not test. super frustrating!!

    I've had no pain or irritation in my 4 years of constant bv .

    the only time I do is when I have inserted bv pesserys ( balance active brand) or boric acid or anything else I've inserted.

    I then get total irritation inside and itchy genitals which I then have to use thrush pessary ( canasten brand)

    if you've inserted anything that would be why I'd guess .

    but that doesn't explain the pains

    it's so hard living with bv

    its ruined my quality of life for years especially the smell part.

    I found using boric acid or others just made it beyond worse .

    my issue is the smells that's my worst symptom.

      When i had BV and needed to be out in public or around others i would wear tampons even if i was not on my periods. Try this it really helped me cope with the BV nightmare.
