Can you get a pelvic infection from untreated B. V.?
Before you read on I have lone one sex partner (for three years now, monogamous and have have no std's recently tested and came pay for negative.) I take baths on a daily basis so I am a clean person.
I found out two weeks ago (from reading medical records) that contained by January I had Bacterial Vaginosis and my doctor didnt treat me for it. Earlier this month it was discovered that my right ovary and tube be infected and that because the antibiotics wont work and the pain is so excruitiating that it interferes with on a daily basis activities. I now own to have surgery to get my ovary removed.
Is is possible that the untreated Bacterial Vaginosis cause this infection?
Any suggestions on how to prevent it from coming back?
Any suggestions on pain direction?
I know its alot of questions but I would appreciate some help because the doctors wont confer pain meds or f/u for the infection that is still present.
Answer: Bacterial vaginosis is usually not serious. In some cases, however, it can raison d`¨ētre infections in the uterus and fallopian tubes. It is important to treat bacterial vaginosis, especially since having an IUD inserted, an abortion, or tests done on the uterine pool liner. Both trichomoniasis and bacterial vaginosis have been allied to an increased risk of transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and other sexually transmitted diseases.
