Recurrent BV

Posted , 6 users are following.

Symptomatic BV for years. Have been trying all kind of antibiotic and vaginal ovules prescribed by doctor. Sometimes discharge is white, sometimes it is yellow or green. Sometimes watery, and sometimes creamy and thick. Smell also varying from fishy, sour, and sometimes smells like amonia. Not sure what cause the changes in color.

Want to TTC soon. Scared BV cause preterm labor and miscarriage. Since it wont go away by antibiotic or antiseptic or probiotic, what can i do?

    Serena same thing for me. I'd been to Doctor over and over took meds after Med and used cream and natural remedies. This last time my OBGYN was booked solid and saw his CRNP which is female. She wanted to test for a bacteria that most docs don't test for and I was positive. It's called mycoplasma. Look it up. She put me on Doxycycline for 10 days and I've been BV free for 6months now!! I will say this, my Ins didn't pay for the lab and I owe the Lab $700 but if you're like me I was fed up with having this allllll the time. Makes you feels less than womanly. I feel the $700 is worth feeling normal again. Hope this helps!!!!

      Hi there! Thanks for sharing. I have been taking probiotic (one capsule a day) and it helps with the symptoms, but only sometimes. Maybe i need to take more than 1 capsule a day. Could u pls let me know what brand of probiotic r u taking?

    hi Serena, sorry for the trouble, but I wanted to share some details with you, did you know that BV is a Sexually Transmitted Infection, it's from having relations with a woman or with a man that sleeps with other women and brings it home to you. after months of repeated treatment, the medication will not work, you are right, BV leads to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, and you could miscarry your unborn. If you are getting treated again, you will need stronger antibiotics for a longer period of time, plus your partner would also need antibiotics. 

    I am SeanjariPreeti andI hope I was of assistance to you.

    Re: Sagarius she/he is right  re: being a STI You could be giving it back to yourself it doesn't require infidelity  as I was told in UK even Nuns get it! But requires testing & microscopes not strong enough & remits from admin prevents a specialist applying his art & intelligence .As you can also become immune to antibiotics & in uk often don't give when needed .This could end up a sepsis issue! I feel for you all having to pay .Send the Bill to the President? !Here they just ignore  blaming.Could it be a gender issue as the Best Specialists in UK [ Amazon book] deal with Cancer & men when it is women who suffer more?As is the case of Lipo-lymphoedema  who are still using compression garments [ Chinese women & feet- ancient tradition] that make matters worse if congenital cellulitus?If men had these conditions there would be effective treatment I am sure.
