Suggest treatment for chronic bacterial vaginosis

default
Posted on Tue, 8 Dec 2015
Question: In 2007 when I was 19 yrs old, I had an emergency partial hysterectomy when having my first son. They said I had placenta Accretia. They took my uterus, cervics and fallopian tubes. I kept bleeding out tremendously, and after numerous blood transfusions they found a cut artery on my cervics. They repaired it and took my cervics. Fast forward -- I'm not sure if these two things are tied or not, but I've been having chronic bacterial vaginosis for 11 months now. The pills no longer get rid of them, the creams don't work, the natural rememdies aren't very helpful. Aside from that, the past 4 months ive missed many days of work due to severe pain in my abdomen and pelvis. it starts in my pelvis, goes up to my bellybutton and hurts in my lower back. During the pain, I throw up, I get occasional chills, I get bloated and constipated. I've gotten ct scans that checked out fine and ultrasounds as well. I'm stumped on what this could be. I feel like the Bv and severe pains could somehow be related. I'm at my witts end and am now also on anti-anxiety medication due to all of this. Please offer any advice you can. I should also mention that me and my partner have been tested for stds and are both negative.

Hi
Dr. Purushottam welcomes you to HCM virtual clinic!
Thanks for consulting at my virtual clinic. I have carefully gone through your case, and I think I have understood your concern. I will try to address your medical concerns and would suggest you the best of the available treatment options.
1] First of all do not panic, be calm. It is true that you have come out of great struggle.
2] Let's thank GOD and try to make this gift of life comfortable and pain free.
3] I will suggest you-
1)Tab ORNIDAZOLE _OFLOXACIN 2 times a day for 7 days.
2)Clingen vaginal suppository once a day for 7 days.
3) LACTACYD vaginal wash 3/4 days every week,while taking bath.
4) Cap VIBACT DS once a day for 20 days.
4] Apart from the medicines, try to have healthy diet and regular exercise regime.
5] include plenty of fruits, salads, vegetables and water in daily diet.
6] If possible try on vajrasan position-sitting on legs by folding knees, resting on both shin bones, 10 minutes 2/3 times a day. This helps to improve pelvic congestion if any.
I hope my answer helps you.

Thank you. Are these medicines I can get over the counter? Also, have you heard of anything like this before, could they be in relation to each other? There have been times when I've gotten rid of the bv before but it ALWAYS comes back especially after sex, but even if I refrain from that I still seem to get it. I will try the vajrasin position. I'm just not sure it's pelvic congestion or intestines or what

Brief Answer:
Use condom, combi pack, consider laparoscopy.

Detailed Answer:
hi
Dr Purushottam here again.
1]I will suggest use of condom while having sex, not as a contraceptive but as a infection transfer barrier.
I will also suggest combi pack of Fluconazole, Azithromycin and Secnidazole, for both of you.
2] As you said , it could be bowel/intestine pain, but it needs to be addressed by doing a laparoscopic surgery, to evaluate presence of adhesions.
3] I am mentioning adhesions not to frighten or disturb you, but in view of emergency surgery you have undergone in the past.
4] In medical science we have to think of various conditions, and treat them to get pain free, good quality life.
5) You might need a prescription for ornidazole-ofloxacin.
I hope, this helps you. Thanks.
Wish you a great health.
Dr. Purushottam
