THESE WERE SOME FOLLOWUP QUESTIONS FROM YOUR LAST POST:

Did your OB/GYN discuss you the possible underlying causes of a persistent vaginal infection?

Did they do any cultures?

Did they discuss the possible role of your birth control pills?

Have you had children?

Please let me know and I will be happy to answer your questions.

When they did the pelvic exam, do you know if they did cultures? Did they find BV on a culture?

Thank you!

That sounds like a great plan. I would also recommend that you consider another OB/GYN where you can get a second opinion.
