Hey ladies. How are you?i am 3 weeks out of a c csection. I called my ob office earlier this morning to get the results of a urine culture that they did. I was told there was some bacteria in the urine and that it was called BV( bacterial vaginosis / gardnerella) anyone ever had this or heard of it? I don't even have any symptoms. But it was in the culture. I'm freaked out and nervous as all hell. Dr can't see me until tomorrow and he doesn't seem worried.. But I sure am. He said this is common and is usually just a mild strain bacteria. Hopefully he can just give me a cream rather than pills. I was just on a course of cephalexin.. My stomach is just stopping to hurt.. :-(. ( though my new set of nerves from this are freaking me the heck out).
I had this about a million times when I was pregnant with my son. It is most commonly accompanied by a yeast infection but I had the same issue the first time, no symptoms but they did a routine pap and found it. They just give you some meds to clear it up. Being pregnant and just having a baby your hormones are changing, it is complete normal.
