I think it's...

I think I have bacterial vaginosis. I've never had any problems like that, and I wouldn't even know what it was unless I had seen posts on here. But I was wondering, since I obviously have to go to the doctor, there won't have to be an examination, right? Couldn't I just provide them with some sort of sample? Thanks for your help. (I really, really hope there doesn't have to be an examination.)

Hello. When I get bacterial vaginosis its b/c of condom use. I'm allergic to condoms and no one can seem to tell me which kind to use. What makes you think you have it? Do you have a fishy discharge? It shouldnt itch just have an unpleasant odor. It can also be caused by an imbalance of the bacteria down there. It's nothing to fret over unless its something other than what youve said. They will give you metrogel or the pill form which you take either twice a day for seven days or the cream at bedtime for seven days. They will take a culture and if its bacteria they will know right away from the odor.
