Thick white vaginal discharge w/ foul odor. Doc tested for yeast, BV, & std. Said it was borderline BV. Prescribed metronidazole. Still have bad odor?

It takes a few days: "Borderline" BV probably is real BV, and metronidazole orally almost always is effective. (Vaginal metronidazole doesn't work well.) You don't say how much time has passed; it takes a few days. ...Read more

Here are some...: When was the last time you saw PCP or gyn doc? Why do you think of cervical erosion, which is diagnosed by direct inspection with biopsy as needed. As to vaginal drying during coitus, one has to analyze a detailed history of how you have conducted sex stressing the sequence of events at least. For now, try judiciously using lubricant and lessening coital frequency, and see. More? See your doctor. ...Read more

I have a chronic vaginal odor. I have been to the doctor and it is not BV or Yeast infection. Is Norform suppositories safe for long term use?

I have a chronic vaginal odor. I have been to the doctor and it is not BV or Yeast infection. Is Norform suppositories safe for long term use?

Get rechecked: This depends a lot on the nature of the odor and other symptoms, like discharge. Yeast doesn't cause odor, so that make sense. But if the odor is fishy or strong, BV remains a good bet and sometimes is hard to diagnose. Trichomonas, an STD, causes similar odor; it needs a PCR test for accurate diagnosis. Norform is a deodorant, won't treat any infection. Consider getting a second opinion. ...Read more

Skin irritation?: If you have been to a doctor who checked the discharge for a variety of causes and all are negative then you may have irritation of the skin that causes the itchy and burning sensation.

Further Evaluation: It is important to make sure you have had a complete panel of cultures, which would include ureaplasm and mycoplasm.

Itching in/around vagina & on butt after unprotected sex 13 days ago. Some tingling. No blisters/rash. Negative testsfor BV, yeast & HSV2. What is it?

No clue: Itching is a nonspecific symptom. This could be brought on by something as simple as a soap or douche you are using, exposure to scented toilet tissue, etc. The skin can have a minor "allergic" response to chemicals contained in these products. I would look to some new product you are using, Such symptoms usually arise within a day or so of first use, ...Read more

Did test of HIV, herpes, chlam, gono, syphilis, BV, yeast are negative. Was given Metro. Gel for foul smell, but is still lightly there. Have HPV.

Bacterial vaginosis?: Foul vaginal odor usually means bacterial vaginosis (BV). There is no single test that is reliable for BV, so your negative test doesn't mean you don't have it. Best treatment for BV is metronidazole by mouth for 5-7 days; vaginal treatment (MetroGel) usually doesn't work. Trichomonas, an STD, is also possible; make sure you were tested (DNA test, not just microscopic). Nothing to do with HPV. ...Read more
