I was diagnosed with this as well. All the articles on the web that I have found have confirmed that it is very rare a man will have symptoms and only 50% of women will have symptoms. I was very symptomatic with the exception of pain during urination. I did a course of Metronidazole treatment but I still have symptoms now, consisting of intense itchiness, vaginally and rectally, and a greenish gray spotted discharge. I have had two more swabs taken and the results came back negative, but I was upset to find out how laboratory microscopy will quite often cause inaccurate results. Anyhow, further research revealed high dosages of Tinidazole helps in the majority of cases where Metronidazole failed. I have had symptoms of itchiness for many years, but the results either came back as yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis or nothing at all. My relationship with my boyfriend ended when I told him about this. He tried to respond supportively but I saw his feelings about me changed. We tried to have a baby together, so it is plausible he may have given it to me, but I may have contracted from an ex-boyfriend, but it was misdiagnosed. It's amazing how different the symptoms could be.View Thread
