Bacterial vaginosis

I was diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis at my trip to L&D yesterday. I contacted the doctor's office today and was prescribed Metronidazole (Flagyl). I tried to look up the diagnosis and could only find that it can increase risk for pre-term labor (not a problem for me at this point). Does anybody else know about this condition or have experience?

Yeah, I've had it before, it's actually pretty common, women just usually think they have a yeast infection. The meds will clear it up quick Smile

I've had BV quite a few times. In fact I was just treated for that and a uti a few weeks ago. They prescribed the same thing. I wouldn't worry too much about it, it's quite common.
