BV? Or something else??

About 2 months ago I developed what I believed to be a yeast infection. I treated it with Monistat1 and the symptoms pretty much cleared up. I still had slight burning and itching and a kind of tingly feeling along with a fishy odor. So I went to my gyn and she gave me 2 different antibiotics to insert vaginally. She gave me Terconazole and Metronidazole. Again, my symptoms got a a little bit better, but I still had weird sensations and itching on my vulva. About a week later I went back and she did another exam, and diagnosed me with BV. I was then put on Metronidazole oral for a week and given probiotics. I just finished the antibiotics and have been taking the probiotics orally. I still have a somewhat fishy odor and a tingling sensation around my clitoris area. Starting today, I have been inserting the probiotic vaginally because doing it orally isn't seeming to help.

I have no idea what could have caused this. Other than me using tampons for the first time right before the infection sprouted, absolutely nothing has changed. And the weirdest part through out all of this is that I really haven't had any discharge.
Please help :(
I'm so embarrassed and beginning to lose hope

A week might not be long enough, if it is BV.  Did she diagnose BV by doing a swab and sending it to the lab?  If so, it's BV.

If you are sexually active, it is a good idea for your partner to also take Flagyl at the same time that you do, so he won't pass it back to you.
