Normal bacteria: These are normal bacteria in the genital tract; at any time, half of all sexually active people have them. They are shared sexually, but rarely cause symptoms or disease. No treatment is needed for them. it is normal for them to reappear after treatment. You do not have "an infecion"; you are simply carrying normal bacteria. Maybe not "always" there, but probably a lot of the time. No worries!
