    Angry BV or Trich help it doesn't make sense

    Hello yesterday I went to the gyn and I was told that I have Trich now I want to first say that I am a married woman who hasn't cheated on her husband ever and I know my husband has never cheated on me. We've been together for three and a half years. Around 6 months ago I went to another gyn (insurance has changed since then) and they told me I had bv and gave me my medication and everything went away. I was told most women who get it once will have it a second time. Now fast forward to 2 weeks ago I had my period and was in such severe pain I went to the hospital. The hospital did ultra sounds and ran all different tests blood and a pelvic exam taking swabs. The doctor told me I had no stds or discharge. My gyn yesterday said the hospital doesnt check for trich which doesn't make sense. Now yesterday I went to the gyn and I am expected my period tomorrow. She did a Pap smear and took a swab after the pap made me bleed and put it under a microscope due to discharge and she came back and told me I had Trich. I honestly believe that I would've came up in the test at the hospital if I did have it. Is it possibly for bv to be misdiagnosed as Trich? I have the same odor and whitish discharge as when I went to the gyn for bv but that's about it. ( I don't think it's important but I had sex about a day and a half before my appr) I believe she misdiagnosed me

    DEpending on which test she did, the trich testing has a high incidence of false positives - according to information I found easily. Perhaps a retest is in order...
