Bacterial Infection during pregnancy !

Hi. I'm almost 26 weeks pregnant I've had some type of bacterial infection for a couple weeks now. The Dr didn't say what kind exactly but probably bacterial vaginosis or something of the sort. My question is I tried metrogel twice as he said and it has not gone away. They aren't open until Monday should I go to the emergency room or wait until they can see me when I call Monday afternoon? I'm so paranoid because o know infections can cause preterm labour or rupture membranes but idk at what point that would happen. So idk if I should wait it out and it would be okay or not.

Im had that 2xs so far during my pregnancy. Im 30w. Just call ur Dr. Monday morning and ask for a RX to be called in.They have to call on ones that work for pregnant woman. But u should be fine and it may also run its course.

Try eating activia yogurt twice a day! I couldn't get rid of my bacterial infection for the life of me until I started eating this yogurt... and so far no infection since April! It wouldn't hurt to try. Hope this helps!

When I had my first they told me they had an infection they couldn't identify so I had to deliver her while infected. It turned out to be chlamydia. Why they couldn't identity that I don't know, have you told your OB you want a full STD check? I'm talking about a pap smear, blood test, urine test, the whole nine yards. Chlamydia didn't do me or my daughter any harm, but there's no way to say if that's what you have.

I've had a check for all that before I don't have an std.its not that he didn't identify it because he didn't know he just wasn't specific about a name he seemed sure what it was.
