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).

Does it go away and usually stay away after treatment?? Nothing serious can happen right?

There is nothing to freak out about. It's a simple infection that's super common.

 I am 99% sure that's pretty common because of the cath... you will get meds and be fine. It really is nothing to worry about.

 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.
