I apologize in advance for the long question/rant and overly TMI. I developed BV when I had unprotected sex for the first time with my current boyfriend, a little over 1 year ago. I have been on multiple trips to the doctors. I am 19 years old and I've never had any problems with vaginal infections until having sex with this particular partner. I first went to my regular pediatrician who prescribed Metronidazole multiple times. After 5 visits, being prescribed the same antibiotic, and having a reoccurrence every time I had intercourse I was finally prescribed Clindamycin for a week with Metro intravaginal gel along with probiotics for a year as a maintenance. This worked well until I stopped using it (the gel was so messy), the next day after sex all symptoms would be back. After feeling defeated and crying to my mom I made an appointment with a new gynecologist, after getting a lecture and being ridiculed for having unprotected sex....He prescribed 600mg boric acid suppositories from the pharmacy to use every night for a week and then 2 times a week for the rest of the two month course. Finally something that worked, I had about 2 weeks of relief; no smell and no discharge. But when the course switched to 2 times a week I developed BV every time i've had sex since. The symptoms have changed over the last year from fishy odor to rotten cabbage smell... still a thin creamy discharge sometimes with a tinge of yellow. I'm honestly so drained from this topic. I am only 19 and feel as if I will never have a normal sex life again. What's my next step?
