Is it normal to get a bacterial vaginosis 35 weeks pregnant? what does it cause that infection?

BV in pregnancy: Vaginal physiology fluctuates a lot during pregnancy. I wouldn't say it is "normal" to get BV, but it may be fairly frequent. BV involves overgrowth of vaginal bacteria, but the causes of that overgrowth are not understood well. STDs are more common in women with BV: since you're pregnant, you probably have been tested for STD, but check with your doctor to be sure. Follow doc's treatment advice. ...Read more

Diagnosed with Bacterial Vaginosis.Taking metronidazole 500mg.Is this going to cause a yeast infection and how can I prevent that?

Maybe but not likely: Mixed vaginal infections (caused by bacteria, fungi, viruses, BV...) are not uncommon. If you take metronidazole for a prolonged period of time, there is a risk that the yeasts in your vagina may cause you some transient symptoms which will resolve spontaneously. You may simply want to wait or consult your gynecologist regarding yogurt, Diflucan (fluconazole) or other preventive measures appropriate to you ...Read more

Was taking Metronidazole for bacterial vaginosis but it caused severe itching and a foul odour. Does it mean I have a yeast fungal infection instead?

Was taking Metronidazole for bacterial vaginosis but it caused severe itching and a foul odour. Does it mean I have a yeast fungal infection instead?

Maybe, probably not: Yeast infections cause itching but usually not odor. Probably the odor is from the BV itself, even if first noticed after starting treatment. But regardless of odor, the itching could indicate a yeast infection. Allergy to metronidazole unlikely but possible. You also need to be checked for other STDs like gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomonas if not yet done. Discuss with your doctor or clinic. ...Read more
