Poistcoital bleeding, no std, pelvic exam and pap smear are normal only bacterial vaginosis, i don't bleed on second rounds, what is the cause?

Cervicitis?: Postcoital bleeding often means cervicitis, which often goes along with BV. Gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomonas are common causes, but most cervicitis has unknown causes. Ask your doctor if you have cervicitis; about the newer DNA test for trich (the older microscope exam and culture miss many cases); and maybe trying antibiotics. Anyway, keep working on it; the answer shouldn't be difficult. ...Read more

I : I can understand your concern, that sounds very frustrating. Please seek out a second opinion from a gynecologist and get their advice. Also avoid hot baths, any bath additive such as bath salts or bubble baths, or any vaginal sprays. You can try vagisil for symptom control during the day. Avoid any sugary foods or alcohol as it can lead to candida (yeast). Only wear cotton underwear and not nylon. Only but please seek out a second opinion of your symptoms. ...Read more

Not necessarily: Bacterial vaginosis is a specific type of vaginal infection that women get, and is quite common.

I have vaginal discharge with no odor. I just treated myself for bacterial vaginosis, everything seemed fine until i noticed heave discharge.

See doctor: A few things come to mind. There are no approved otc meds for bv, no unless a doctor called something in for you, it might not have been a BV medication. Bacterial vaginosis (bv) tends to have a distinct odor, so if your discharge did not have one, may have been something else, such as yeast. Worth seeing your doc to determine cause- there is a new high quality test (affirm) which can help tell. ...Read more
