Discharge smells like vinegar
Mon, 12-08-2003 - 9:33pm
I've been having problems for the last year and half. My doctor diagnosed me with BV only through the process of elimination. So far I've had 2 reoccurances and have been treated but it seems to return so quickly after being treated (with flagyl).

Now I'm experiencing a sour or vinegar smell with my discharge along with some burning. Could this be the BV rearing its ugly head again?

How long does it usually return after treatment? I've only had a good 2 months before it came back this time.

Any BV help would be appreciated, sometimes I think I'm going insane, why can't I just be healthy "down there". :(

I totally understand where you're coming from having struggled with recurrent yeast infections for over a year.
