I've got to admit it has scared me a little reading everyones experiences of BV so I thought I would share mine too. A few of weeks back I went to the doctor for some swabs because I wanted a coil fitting. It came back I had BV. I'd had no symptoms of BV whatsoever. I was precribed a course of metronidazole which I completed. I then started having pain in my lower stomach when I went to the loo, I went back to the doctors who said it was unrelated and was given another different antibiotic to treat a water infection (which I didn't have). About 3 days later I developed constant stomach pain, I was back and forth to the doctor for days until finally they sent me to the hospital. I have now been diagnosed with Pelvic Inflammitory Disease. I spent two nights as an inpatient because I was in so much pain. They don't know if I definately developed PID from having BV but I had been tested for STI's not long before so it definately wasn't sexually transmitted. I just wondered if there was anyone who has a similar experience??
