This is not true. Because Trich and BV are so similar many doctors do not recognize it. I was in a relationship with someone for 4 years. I had frequent pap-smears don't once every 6 months. All my results came bck negative. I had a series of bacterial vagina's infections and my doctor kept prescribing flagyl but I intermittently got symptoms. Eventually I stopped taking flagyl and tried alternative medicine to balance my phone. My boyfriend and I broke up. I remained sexually abstinent for 1 year before having sex with a new guy. 6 months into my ne
w relationship I and my new partner were std tested. We both got negative results but I was told I had BV. I decided to not take flagyl because of a few posts I read online. Nevertheless, my new boyfriend and I had unprotected sex. 4 days later he started experiencing burning abd discharge from his penis. He went to the doctor and they told him hehad an std. They weren't sure what the disease was. I went to my doctor and she said nothing was wrong with me. I just have bacteria. I decided to go to another doctor who took a sample of cervix and looked under a microscope immediately herself. Boom! Trich was my problem. My new doctor prescribed flagyl and my boyfriend only used flagyl also. We are both now free of the infection.
