Vaginitis: Call your doctor anyway. There are some types of BV that are becoming more resistant to treatment and may benefit with a course of a different antibiotic. On the other hand, it is also possible that you already had something that wasn't checked before starting treatment.

Protected sex, I have burning sensation they said it was bacterial vaginosis, 3 weeks later I have small flesh bumps.?

Get rechecked: Something doesn't quite fit. Bacterial vaginosis usually doesn't cause a burning sensation or genital bumps. Genital warts usually aren't "fleshy", but that might be a possibility. Or maybe nothing abnormal? It doesn't sound like herpes or any other STD. You need to be rechecked by the doctor or clinic where you were seen 3 weeks ago. Best to avoid sex until then. Good luck! ...Read more

URI: 99.1 is high normal. Nasal congestion, ear congestion, post nasal drip, fatigue, and a nasty taste along with this temperature sounds more like an upper respiratory infection than anything to do with bacterial vaginosis or recent treatment with metronidazole. This could be viral in which case you just treat the symptoms or bacterial in which case you may need antibiotics. See your PCP to be checked ...Read more

Can anyone tell me what causes bacterial vaginosis?

Vaginal flora: Bacterial vaginosis is a mild infection of the vagina caused by native bacteria. Normally, there are a lot of "good" bacteria and some "bad" bacteria in the vagina.

A sign of bacterial vaginosis can be a "fishy" smell, which may be worse after sex. About half of women who have bacterial vaginosis do not notice any symptoms. ...Read more
