    BV? (Bacterial vaginosis)

    Hi, I am having a problem and I went to the doctors on the 18th. My doctor told me it was pb an STD, but I am STD free. And she told me I wasn't old enough to get a PAP.

    Last year I visted the doctors because I had an yest infection and it didn't go away the first time. When I went she did confirm I had an yest infection but also a bacterial infection. This doctor did preform a PAP.

    Well anyways I have bad odor, very very white discharge, pain during sex, and blood after sex. The blood is very dark light the beginning of your period. Do you think its a BV? If so how can i tell my doctor this? Because I told her about this on the 18th but she did nothing about it.

    If your doctor is not listening to your concerns and acting accordingly then I would get a new doctor. There is no point paying someone for nothing.
