I had an awful yeast infection which Gynologist said that it is BV

I was just wondering because I went to the doctor yesterday thinking I had an awful yeast infection and she gave me Metrogel for a bacterial infection. I have never had sex but my boyfriend and I do play around. We recently thought it would be fun to get some KY Yours + Mine. Well a couple of days later I started feeling itching and pain during our playtime. It was quite unpleasant. I just thought the KY had changed the PH level in my vagina which caused a yeast infection, but after the GYNO visit it is BV. I was wondering if anyone else has had these dreadful symptoms after using the product. Is it possible?

The lubricants do give some irritation to some people. The Bactial infection that yu got may not be exactly due to th elubricant, though the contents of it may have lead to the nourishment and a sort of culture medium for their growth.

I was diagnosed with both bv and a yi last week. At my follow up appointment with my ob I found out that everything looks fine now, but I m still dealing with this unbearable dull itch/burning. I have used Vagisil and it relieves it a little, I also take ibuprofen because it can be painful. Could this be more serious? Is one or both things coming back?

I have been experiencing recurring BV and yeast infections for the last 3 months. My doctor says my PH is off due to cycle because that s always when it occurs. I was put on 7 day dose of Flagyl pills followed by twice weekly gel for 4 months. After second dose and third I have been noticing dime size clumps of wet paper looking yeast (I assume). Very little itching on outside and no discomfort or other discharge. Is this common and since I have 3 1/2 months of gel to go, should I be on Diflucan long term? This is all very frustrating!

im not sure if i have herpes or a yeast infection i have had a dry throat for almost 5 weeks now, i often almost constantly have weak calves and sometimes my forearms also feel weak. i also get back, neck and chest (pecks) pain. at this stage i have no blisters or sores anywhere though i have had a small cluster of tiny white dots on my lips for almost this whole time. i also get an ichty anus and have mild constipation. it doesn t hurt when i urinate though my penis does sometimes randomly itch and sting. im scared and i cant find a defining factor on the internet because both have similar symptoms. i have had blood test for herpes but i know that was pointless because that was only two weeks after possible expossure.
