BV

I was recently treated for chlamydia about a month ago, I'm 14 weeks pregnant & my doctor is now treating me for a bacterial infection in my vagina (BV I guessing). I've googled it a million times & ive read it can cause miscarriages in the second trimester & that my partner does not have to be treated. I'm so.nervous about the whole situation this is my first pregnancy.. can anyone help?!

I just got treated for BV and my baby and I are okay... What is your concern? If you take the meds like prescribed it will go away and you will be fine

It can only cause problems if left untreated,as long as youve been prescribed something an take it properly itll clear up and you should be fine.

Miley I didn't have any symptoms either which is why I'm so confused how I can have something but no symptoms!, & queenkay I've talked to a few girls I work woth who have children & they ha all said its very common & sometimes can occur a few times during your pregnancy.

Your partner does not need to be treated an it can only affect your baby if you don't treat it..

If you have no symptoms then how is it found? Once I read about someone having something I start to wonder.
