Hi, I was just recently diagnosed with BV. The only symptom that I was aware of was the horrible discharge, and usually only after intercourse. I always thought that a yeast infection was coming about, but then the discharge would go away, and I thought nothing of it. My doctor gave me a script of METRONIDAZOLE, told me to take it accordingly and everything would be ok. Well, come to find out, my mother-in-law was perscribed METRONIDAZOLE about 20 years ago and then found out that she was pregnant. Because there isn't/wasn't enough studies done with the antibiotic during pregnancy, her Dr. faced her with the decision to carry full turm or to abort.
So now here I am 20 something years later, pregnant with her second gradchild (my second child), and not knowing what to do. I haven't taken any of the meds and decided not to, but this decision leaves my BV untreated, and from what I've been researching, this isn't something that should be left untreated.
I've been reading alot of what other women with BV have to say about treating BV with natural remedies and am wondering if there is anything out there that is safe for pregnant women.
SOMEONE PLEASE HELP! ?!
