I have a double infection that was ignored by Kaiser, both bacterial vaginosis and a yeast infection. I am to say the least, very upset! I mentioned to the "midwife" that this was going on, she told me I had a diaper rash. Not even joking.
So, new "midwife" who was very nice, checked me today and found the infections. She prescribed Flagyl and after reading the insert, I really don't want to take it. I'm VERY sensitive to antibiotics and am considered allergic to sulfameth, which was used to treat a UTI, the first one I've ever had in my life. This occurred a few months before becoming pregnant.
I am taking a liquid probiotic, lots of vitamin c. I am using a peri-bottle filled with hydrogen peroxide that is helping but I'm not douching with it, nor do I want to. I am wondering why the gel stuff wasn't prescribed, this is what I ended up using in my 3rd trimester with my first pregnancy, but that time, I just had crazy discharge, not persistent itching.
Any tips or suggestions are welcome, I want relief but don't want to take anything as seemingly harmful as Flagyl appears to be.
