About 3 years ago i started suffering with a BO fishy vaginal odour and sometimes theres a brown stain in the crutch of my knickers. I went to the doctors who called me back for the results to tell me that i had BV. I took a course of antibiotics (metri something) and the problem temp went away. After it kept coming back and i was put on longer stronger courses they put me in for more tests and are now saying that they arent getting any traces of BV. I have fallen pregnant twice inbetween then and now (im at 40 weeks at the moment and so waiting for the 2nd child to pop out). The problem is still there, i will obviously be going back to the doctors after i have had baby number 2, but i know that yet again im going to be told that there is no trace of it. Infact my last doctor basically told me to tough luck maybe thats just your natural odour... i know that this isnt the case because its so foul.
I dont use soap to cleam my vagina, my underwear is 100% cotton BUT i have put on a lot of weight over the past few years, i have heard that this could be a cause of BV coming back... has anyone else had the same problem but found after they last weight its been easier to deal with and just gone? Has anyone else been told that its not BV? Is it worth getting my partner tested aswell? I know its not an STD as i got tested for all of those when i was pregnant. OK i think ive covered most angles, please any info is good info if it helps. Im finding it very distressing now.
