Angry vary angry with hospital misdiagnosed BV

well I just realized I have bacterial vaginosis from a pap smear taken at my first prenatal visit. I went to the hospital about a month before that complaining about a strong fishy odor that matched the symptoms of bacterial vaginosis. The hospital did some cultures and he told me all the tests were negative and basically sent me home without any explanation. The following month I had a pap smear done and it read "shift in florra suggestive of bacterial vaginosis"! I am so upset because I knew something was wrong and I cannot understand why it went undianosed. Now I am finally going to clear it up with prescribed medication. Has anything like this happened to anyone else. omg, and why would my gynocologist tell me this was an STD!!!!
