In brief: Recurrent BV? STD?

BV often recurs, so that's a possibility.
However, BV doesn't usually cause colored discharge. Were you tested for STDs, including gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomonas? These all are more common in women with BV; make sure your doc does the best tests, including DNA test for trich. Hold off sex, or only with condoms. Keep working with your doctor -- it should be possible to work this out.
