Hi Anonymoous,
I would certainly get a second opinion if you are not involved in the things mentioned by Rosa. Please keep us posted.

Hi Anon,

Do you:
Use douches or feminine sprays?
Have sex without a condom?
Have a new sexual partner or multiple partners?
Use an intrauterine device (IUD) for birth control?

These all put you at added risk for having bacterial vaginosis. However, anything that can disrupt your normal bacteria will cause you to have BV. If you aren't sure whether you are being accurately diagnosed, please consider getting a second opinion.

Good Luck,
