A little over a year ago I had severe symptoms of trichomoniasis: burning, discharge, and odor. I went to the doctor and was given a single dose of metronidazole. When that didn’t work, I was given the same medicine to take over a week. I followed all the doctor’s directions and took all of the pills and stopped having sex. I felt better for a few days, and then my symptoms returned, although a lot milder. Since that first visit, I have been to the doctor several times throughout the year for the same infection and I have taken the same medication each time for it that doesn’t work. Just a few weeks ago, I went back to the doctor because for some reason I thought this time would be different. Well, it was different because the doctor didn’t see any trich from the wet mount, but I had an elevated wbc count and a high pH, which has been consistent with every wet mount. There were also clue cells and I was told I have BV. I was prescribed the same medication, even though it didn’t work the first several times I took it and I'm still having the same symptoms. Tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia were also negative.
