Well today me and my girlfriend approached my girlfriend's gynecologist with the lab results he had asked for. He looked at them and said they were fine and that my girlfriend was healthy. He said that abundant bacteria was normal, and that the symptoms she had were due to fungi she had gotten from an intense antibiotic treatment. The fungi probably do not appear on the test because she was already undergoing treatment for the fungi when we approached the gynecologist for the first time.
Should we get a second opinion, or are the results consistent with my girlfriend being healthy? When we saw the results; before showing them to the doctor, we thought she had trichomoniasis, but then again we are not doctors and have no idea how these lab results should be interpreted.
Yes, she got treated for chlamydia and hence had to take antibiotics. She also got appendicitis, for which she also had to take antibiotics. So that's where the yeast infection probably came from. Doctor knows this.
From what my girlfriend explained, they extracted liquid from her vagina (they put a tube in there for a while and then extracted it).
at this point, she should just wait a month and repeat testing just for yeast and bacterial infections vaginally ( just because sometimes bacteria is due to bv, not necessarily due to a std which I assume is your real concern for posting this info here ). usually her provider can do this right in the office without having to send out to the lab. odds are everything will clear up by then but best to be sure.
were you both tested for all std's at the proper times after your last partners?
I was tested, came out positive for chlamydia and ureaplasma. I got treated, and so did she. I got re tested and came back negative for everything. Came out negative for trichomonas both times.
I convinced my girlfriend to get tested after treatment, even though they said with the treatment thay gave us it was not really necessary (3 different antibiotics), because she was having irritation and itchyness.
She got tested, and above are the results. Doctor said she was healthy. I just wanted to make sure that what the doctor said was coherent with the test results. What is BV?
