I've seen my gynecologist twice this year and was diagnosed with Bacteria Vaginosis now I go see him a week ago pretty much with the same symptoms and this time he tells me I have Trichomoniasis. Could my doctor have diagnosed wrong all this time and I had trichomoniasis and not BV?View Thread
I'm in total agreement with you about being very confused. I seen my doctor twice within the past year and was diagnosed with Bacteria Vaginosis witch he says is very common in women. I went for an exam just last week and was diagnosed with trich. Now my situation is different because I was sexually active with my now ex last November, Now why is this just now being detected or had he misdiagnosed me? Is this something that can remain dormant? I didn't have any of the symptons that I read for trich. I just don't know if I should blame the ex or blame the new boyfriend of being unfaithful.View Thread
Thank you for the reply and yes I do understand they are two different medical issues. But my concern is that my doctor may have misdiagnosed me and treated me for bacteria vaginosis when actually what I had was Trichomoniasis. I had intercourse back in November with what is now my exboyfriend and since then I've seen my doctor on two seperate occassions and he diagonosed me with bacteria vaginosis. I'm with a new boyfriend now and recently I went to see my doctor and he diagnosed me with Trichomoniasis. I'm not sure if this is something I contracted from my ex and my doctor has been misdiagnosing me with bacteria vaginosis when it was trichomoniasis all along. So i guess i would like to know could I have had this Trichomoniasis since NovemberView Thread
