I posted weeks ago about the severe vaginal discomfort I have been in. The itching and swelling were so painful I actually cried at times. I spoke to my doctor a month ago about it and she didn't even listen to my symptoms or do an exam..she just told me it was probably hormones and ignored it. On top of this I have been having multiple contractions every hour for 5 weeks with no known cause. I saw the other doctor in the practice for my most recent appointment and told her about my recurring contractions. Her first question was if I had any signs of an infection. Ummm hell yes!!!!!! She immediately did an internal exam and found out I have a severe infection bacterial vaginosis. No big deal but left untreated in pregnancy it can cause preterm labor and low birth weight. Not good when I'm already contracting and carrying a baby with IUGR!! I can't tell you how mad I am that I could have been treated for 4 weeks now. Thanks stupid OB!!!!!!!
