I am a 25yr old female and have been having a foul/fishy smelling white vaginal discharge since i was 14...yeah that long!!!! this all started around the time i had my first period(onset of puberty) and i was of course a virgin...so did not contract it through sex...
I have been to numerous docs/gynos and have been tested numerous times over the years...and every time the tests come back NEGATIVE for bv, yeast, stds(u name them..chlamydia, trich, and so on) i have however been treated with some of the medications for bv like metronizole (or something of the sort)...the symptoms go away for a while only to reappear....
It seems to me like i have symptoms of bv..but why do i always test negative for it???? the doctors know nothing and i am fed up with them... i have just started a few home remedies like hydrogen peroxide wash, tea tree oil suppositories and garlic....will be getting some probiotics to help restore the good bacteria...
Has anyone been through this??? or heard of anything like this??? at least those women who have been diagnosed with bv know what they have and can move on to the next step of treating it...but as for me i am still CLUELESS!!!! PLZ ANY REPLIES WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!....Thanks for reading my post.

PLZ ANY REPLIES WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!....Thanks for reading my post.I have the exact same problem as you. It started when i was 13-14, and ive had it now for around five years. All my tests also come up negative, and of course the doctors say that it is "just normal for you, i guess." Although i cannot say anything to help you, or us, for the matter, i know exactly how frustrating it is to go through this every day. As far as i know, there are no other conditions that have these ranges of symptoms, so i suppose we have to suck it up until something changes? Personally, im still getting a few more second opinions (although its not quite "second" anymore). I suggest you keep searching, because no matter what they say, it is not normal! Good luck.

  • (Not a doctor but have been there) If either of you have been on antibiotics lately, they always messed up my system. Sometimes the discharge as you described or little heat bump looking things on my butt cheek. (Usually the right one, go figure) I think it was my Grandma who told me to try a couple cups of yogurt for a week and it always seemed to work. 'Make sure it's LIVE cultures hunny' (that was supposed to be my Grandma talking fyi). I've even found a case of constipation can create this very unpleasant situation. Who knows?,,toxins in the systems? So, if the doctors have ruled out the really bad stuff then up the water intake and go get some yogurt. Usually works for me. Good Luck!

  • have you tried douching in white vinager and water? thats what we did in our day.That has been proven to be so bad for you and make things much worse! You're killing all the good bacteria in your vagina by douching and leaving it open for bad bacteria to grow and thrive.I'd never suggest that. Douching is a horrible thing to do to your vagina.
