Iud and BV

I have had a paraguard iud for about 4 years now I keep having problems with bv!  It seems like every time  I clear the infection it comes back in two weeks. Not only that but all the meds. keep giving me yeast infections. Could it be caused from the Iud?

OH HUNN I 2 HAVE THE PARAGUARD
IUD ALMOST 5 YRS
AND WAS TOLD BY MY GYNO
THAT I HAD BV......
AND TOOK ALL THE ABIOIC'S
ARE YOU MARIED?
IF YOU ARE SINGLE THEN YOU
PROBABLY SHOULD TRY
TO HAVE IT REMOVED
"MY GUESS"
AND IF YOU'RE STILL WITH THE SAME
PERSON THEN THEY NEED TO
BE TREATED
OR IT WILL COME BACK.
GOOD LUCK HUNNY!

look I'm pretty sure most woman have gone threw the same thing. . .i have the mirena for about 1 1/2 now everything has gone good so far until I recently got a pap and "told me I had BV" I really didn't know what that was but I started thinkn how else could I have gotten it I started to google more about BV and maybe it could of been my partner! I was like what the *** I mean it talked about having multiple partners and I remembered what my gyn had ask me when I first got it inserted "if I was in a stable relationship" I am so removing it! I'm not gonna let this guy rein my infertality just cause I don't feel like having sex all the time. . . . .u should really look in to it and have hime get checked to ohh and I more thing use condoms no matter what even if you have the IUD it will help you get less STD.

I have been having complications with my IUD. I have had a horrible odor (likey fishy smell) and discharge. I have been checked already for STD's and i dont have anything. I believe this is caused by my iud. I think i have an infection and im getting it taken out on tuesday. It probably is BV but i just want the discusting smell to go away.
