Does BV cause bleeding even after periods ?

I had my period for the month already-went tot he doctor to find out I have BV... now I have started spotting a little bit. Could I be pregnant and losing it? Or is my period coming early. Or is it a sign of the BV? I m so confused! We have been trying to have a baby and now I m so confused! Help...

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
If you are having your periods regularly on time then you are not pregnant. Pregnancy cannot be diagnosed without an overdue period. Mild spotting can be due to hormonal disturbance or due to infections like bacterial vaginosis in which case the blood comes from cervix and not the uterus.

I missed the first 4 pills of my new pack waiting for them in the mail. Finally starting the pack on thursday.i have now been on the BC for 2 weeks. Since then I have had tender nipples and breast, little twinges and crampy feelings in lower abdomin. I have egg white film like discharge that has no odor. Other than early pregnancy, could I have a hormonal imbalance from missing those 4 pills or could it be bacterial vaginosis or what do u think most likely. I have taken several pregnancy tests but all have been negative I think it is too early. Help!!!

I m 15 and I have been having a weird odour coming from my vagina and some discharge, it is not painful and it does not burn when I urinate. It is not a yeast infection nor is it a water infection so I have come to the conclusion that it must be Bacterial Vaginosis. I am also not sexually active. I have taken medication that was prescribed by my doctor but it never worked so I decided to do some research. I found that inserting plain yogurt into your vagina and eating yogurt regularly helped cure it. Is this true?

i am an 18 yr old female that is type 1 diabetic. I have had symptoms that mimic a bladder infection but have been told that I do not have one. However, it feels like I have to go the bathroom and it hurts sometimes after Im done peeing. Also, have discharge and a fishy odor and I had bacterial vaginosis and treated it twice now everytime I get my period my syptoms come back also. What could this be? I am very worried and need to know what your advice is. I also am not at home near a doctor...I am at my mom's on vacation out of Canada where Im from. I have travel insurance if you think I should go to emergency to find out what this is. Thanks

What at are the symptoms of vaginitis . I have lower abdominal pain and itching in vaginal area with no discharge. I am having low back pain . This is week two.

I've never written on a site like this before, but I have been dealing with abdominal pain and nausea for almost 2 years. Still undiagnosed, my new physical therapist has been able to decrease the amount of abdominal pain I get, but I have had pain in my lower right rib for a long time. To the touch. I haven't thought anything of it since I have been attempting to find relief from the other pain. Oh and I've had candida & Bacterial vaginosis (one or the other) for the solid 2 years (meds I've been giving me only seem to work for one making the other worse). I'm wondering if they are all somehow connected.
