... have chronic BV and am going to the gynecologist once again tomorrow, hoping to be started on a different drug regimen (Flagyl clears is up, but then it comes back). Being a nurse practitioner, I probably know everything and more there is not know about BV, especially since I diagnose and treat it on a daily basis... So my call out to help is this... How do I share my frustrations and concern with my new partner, who is wonderful? How do I tell him that I may need to be treated for awhile and that we are going to have to use condoms all the time now as a preventive method. I know better than to be ashamed and embarrassed, but I am. :(
Tell him the truth you want his safety, if he loves you he'll understand and be glad you cared that much for him, I think you didn't take Flagyl long enough, I had It for two years Doctors missed it, I was put into hospital and found out, had to use yeast cream and a steroid all that time, I took it three weeks and was told it could come back, taking it longer helped, good luck to you.
