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

Not necessarily: Bacterial vaginosis is a specific type of vaginal infection that women get, and is quite common. A heavy vaginal discharge simply means there is a lot of discharge from the vagina, but that doesn't say why the discharge is heavy. It could be heavy due to a vaginal infection such as yeast or bacterial vaginosis, but from something irritating them, or from using a vaginal medication for instance. ...Read more
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
