I bought an intensive probiotic supplement fiancé about 2.5

I bought an intensive probiotic supplement for my fiancé about 2.5 months ago. He had been having some digestive issues---gas, and irregularity---and this supplement really seemed to help him, right away! I'd been having a lot of flatulence around that time, too, so i decided to give it a shot...and I've been regretting it ever since.The product that I took boasted its, "high-potency formula," with, "30 billion...live cultures per capsule," and its ability to "re-establish digestive balance and support immune health," but, after 8 days of taking it, I knew I had caused a problem for myself, and I was immediately trying to find ways to fix it. I stopped taking the supplement on day 8, and since then I've tried everything. I changed my diet, I took acidophilus, I waited it out, I used monistat (which only made matters worse), and then finally, after 2 months, at my wits end, I went to the doctor. Upon identifying the agent as a bacterial overgrowth or infection of some kind, right off the bat, I was given Metronidazole Vaginal Gel, 0.75%. I was prescribed a 5-day regimen. It temporarily improved matters, but only very slightly, before things got worse. The odor became much stronger (very fishy and sour). I informed my healthcare provider, and rather than put me onto the oral antibiotics that she said she would if the gel didn't work, she referred me to another GYNO. Now I have to wait several more days before I can see this new individual, and I can only hope that they will take me seriously.Everything is different. Texture, consistency, amounts of discharge, and a constant burning sensation. The smell is horrible. Dead fish and other sour smells. I used to have a significant amount of yeast present at all times, but by scent alone I can tell that is entirely gone. Not a trace left. Only fish and dust/wet dust smell. Awful.The only thing I've found that would explain my symptoms would be Lactobacillosis, or Cytolytic Vaginosis. There is absolutely nothing out there online that suggests any successful treatments, or successful approaches by doctors, or offers any potential hope for recovery and a return to normalcy. This is unbearable. It is affecting my everyday life, and it is affecting my soon-to-be-marriage (as of 3 months from now). Please help me.Tests came back from my primary doctor - high presence of lactobacillus in my urine (50,000-75,000, as opposed to ZERO in all tests prior, over many years)...if I cannot get taken seriously by this next doctor I am seeing on Monday, I don't know what I'll do! Is there any chance that I will be taken seriously with this? Can I actually hope to have some kind of remedy presented to me?Awaiting some kind of miracle here,Michelle

I tested negative for STD's around 4 months ago. I have had continued unprotected sex with the same partner for 5 months. Is it safe to assume I am STD free still, if he has not had any other partners?

I am worried and confused. I recently went to the doctor

HI,I am worried and confused.I recently went to the doctor and they diagnosed me with gonnorhea. I have not had sexual relations with anyone else but my husband. So does this mean that he has cheated on me or could i have got this some other way.? He is going to get tested today but he claims he has not cheated and has no symptoms of this.Thank you.

I'm a 24 year old female and 3 weeks ago I had unprotected

Hi, I'm a 24 year old female virgin and 3 weeks ago I had unprotected frottage and attempted intercourse with my partner of 2 months. I asked him to wear a condom but a few minutes into it he took it off. He repeatedly tried to insert himself in my vagina and anus but it was too painful and I stopped him. After the incident I felt burning when I urinated but thought the pain was from attempted intercourse, however recently I found out he cheated on me and have been anxious about catching STIs since. I did 2 tests for UTI, HIV, chlamydia, gonorrhea and trichomoniasis and they all came back negative. The burning subsided but returned very strong again. I have no itching, no bloody discharge, no strange smell and no thick discharge. I just feel a constant burning sensation. I was inspecting myself tonight and found a skin tag hanging from my urethra. It is skin colored and painless to touch and I'm extremely anxious it's genital warts. I don't know what to do and what STIs I'm susceptible to. I do have pictures. Please help.

I recently had unprotected oral and anal sex with a partner

I recently had unprotected oral and anal sex with a partner who a few days later said he was experiencing discharge and an itchy urethra. He went to a doctor's office and they said it could be gonorrhea or chlamydia so they treated him for both with a shot. It has only been three days since we had sex, so I have not shown any symptoms of anything but I'm worried I might have something. I haven't been tested yet because I was told I should wait two weeks to make sure I get accurate results. My question is, should I just go ahead and get treated for both gonorrhea and chlamydia even though I'm not sure I have it yet? Or should I wait two weeks to get tested then see? Are there other proactive steps I should take?
