Check pg test.: Since you haven't been using condoms, and if you are not on birth control, then you could be pregnant and you need to get seen today. You could do a pregnancy test but if it is negative, it is worth getting seen and confirming it with a blood test. If you're unable to get pregnant, then you may be having some spotting, & if that lasts for more than a week, get checked. If you have pain, fever-ER! ...Read more

Secondly, make sure that you use only Dove, Ivory or Caress soaps on the vulva as other soaps are too harsh and can cause itching. ...Read more

One month gf had trich & BV. Got it cleared. Now has chlamydia. Both of us been tested and were neg previous. Have been faithful, false positive?

Hard to say....: If in doubt retest, if positive get treated. It is hard to determine when infection occurred. The accuracy of a test depends on what type of test was done, how specimen was collected and how sensitive / specific the test modality is. It will be good to consult a GYN to guide you with the answers you seek. ...Read more

Take swabs: Bacterial vaginosis and Chlamedia can coexist usually produce no symptoms, or can produce vaginal discharge, abnormal vaginal bleeding, or pelvic infection
diagnosis is by clinical findings and swabs
So I suggest you go to medical facility where you can have swabs done, it is important to discuss contraception, attached leaflet for more information

I got treated for chlamydia and trichomoniasis and BV and I stayed to bleed again?

Test of Cure: You had 3 separate infections, 2 of which were likely sexually transmitted, but the BV is not. Any one of these infections may not clear on the first treatment, and you should be re-evaluated for "test of cure" to see if you need additional treatment, especially if you had another exposure during or after treatment. Or, perhaps the bleeding is your menstruation? ...Read more
