    Bacterial Vaginosis Or Something Else???
    An_193230 posted:
    I've been going to the doctor every month for about 6 months because my bacterial vaginosis kept coming back. All the times I was going though was because I wasn't taking all the pills. I've have a lot of trouble taking pills. So last month I went back and she gave me gel that I have to use intravaginally. I was only supposed to take it for 5 days but it wasn't gone then so I took the WHOLE TUBE OF GEL. I still discharge. I don't have an odor and it doesn't make me itch like it used too but it's so annoying. It's thick and it comes out in big portions. Like I think I have to start wearing panty liners or something all during the door. I don't know what to do. Could it be something else wrong me that the doctors at the health center can't see. Maybe I need to go see a gynecologist or something.

    You need to go to your GYN no need to put up with it.

    Sometimes BV can be very hard to get rid of.

    P.S. It could be a different infection than BV.

    you should look into a pap smear... I thought I had BV at one point in time and I kept getting meds and they weren't working so I had a pap smear and it turned out to be a completely different infection...
