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!

Hi. I am a 20 year old female. I was recently treated for a UTI which lead me to have a yeast infection. I since have been treated for both. I was also tested for STDs, as I am very afraid of them- twice. All results were negative both times. I am still having a burning sensation however and having some pain on the left side close to where the back side of the pelvis bone is if that makes sense. I never get this pain on my right side and it more of a dull, throbbing pain. The doctor said my lymph nodes were fine and I'm going to get checked again next week- just wondering if you had any ideas?

He has been treated with antibiotics about twice and also for yeast infection but the sores are still persistent, pls we would like to know what could be the cause and a probable solution. Thank you
