I recently went to the doctors and got tested because i was very itchy and had a strange odour/discharge. The doctor told me I had bacterial vaginosis. I finished the treatment as directed. Now ive been getting this weird tingly/pins and needles sensation and its itchy from time to time. Im worried the doctor missed something or if im just going nuts. Any answers would be great, i just want some peace of mind!
the doctor put me on both a cream and then a pill, i wasent sure what it was so i asked to be tested for everything and the results came back that i was positive for bacterial vaginosis. The weird discharge is gone but some itching remains.
You may have now gotten a yeast infection from the antibiotics. If you were prescribed metrogel or metronidazole (flagyl), I wouldn't doubt it. I get thrush and/or a genital yeast infection every time I take it.
oh ok, ya she prescribed the metronidazole, im just really worried its something else, im gunna make another doctors appt. in the meantime but the symptoms im having seem like they could be a yeast infection, i have the canestin cream, would u suggest applying it?
I got tired of going to the doctor over and over and tried a natural cure for my BV and its really helped me alot so far. I havent had any recurring BV and thats been a problem for me for quite awhile now. You can find the natural cure here. hope it helpd you too.
You could call your doctor's office and explain what is going on. They may just call in a prescription for you without you having to go in. Also, you could request something for yeast when getting antibiotic prescriptions in future. You would take it after you finish the antibiotic.
It could be from the yeast. Yeast is clumpy and flaky. The discharge could be irritating your vagina. This is what causes the itch as well. Please, call your doctor on Monday. Explain what is going on. Make sure you tell them what medication you were prescribed. Then go from there. They may tell you to come in. They may just prescribe you treatment for yeast.
I can tell you that metronidazole in the cream form or the pill form ALWAYS gives me a bad genital yeast or oral thrush (sometimes both) infection. So, please try to calm down. This can be treated. If there was a reason to believe it was an std, your doctor would have recommended testing for it. Try to relax.
In the mean time, lay off the sugar, alcohol, vinegar, anything that causes yeast to grow. You could also take a tampon, coat it with unsweetened yogurt and insert that for a couple of hours at a time. That may give you some relief. Also, eating the yogurt could help. Do not take baths, and wear cotton or no underwear. No tight clothing. Ok?
ok. Im tryin to think its just the yeast but im terrified its herpes. I think ive been reading up on all this stuff way to much and now im worried to an irrational level. Ive also noticed the bumps on the back of my tongue are enlarged and my tongue looks white and furryish. I no im probably just freaking out for nothing but could the doctors have missed something???? And now im on my period so i cant get tested for a week. :(
Sorry if i sounds stupid but when i talk to my mom about this stuff she thinks nothing of it. Thank you for reasurring me, your advice has given me some peace of mind but i really need to see a doctor because its ALL i think about.
You have thrush. Oral yeast infection. That is from the medication. Exactly what happens to me.
Believe me, it is not herpes. Herpes are very painful blister. Especially the very first time you get infected with it. I know that for a fact as well. Been there, still doing that.
You are having a normal reaction (the same one I already told you I have) from taking metronidazole. It is a nasty, powerful medication. Your doctors did not miss anything.
You are over-worrying yourself. And that is not good. You know bacterial vaginosis is not an std correct? And I am assuming that you are sexually active and that is why you think you have an std? Again, try to relax. Try some of the remedies I told you about. Don't you think if any of your doctors, your mom, or even anyone advising you on forum have all told you the same thing, that maybe you should take it to heart?
You need to call your provider monday and be seen again. Not too much else we can do for you at this point to be honest. BV frequently reoccurs and often takes more than 1 round of treatment to clear up. Your other symptoms could be due to many different things. You can not self treat. You can not guess and try to self diagnose off the 'net. You need to be seen again monday and get a proper evaluation done.
The white chunkies after treating with metrogel are fairly normal and can be very irritating.It's due to dead bacteria sloughing off and working its way out of your body. Anytime you still have symptoms a week after finishing treatment for bv, go back to be seen and properly tested. Your provider can't do a looksee either - they need to actually be properly testing your vaginal secretions unless they have a crystal ball in their clinic and can see your future in it.
