BV and bleeding ?


So I have had several bleeds since 5wks along and plenty of pink and brown spotting in between. Of course, just my luck, I started another bright red bleeding during the flight to Germany. Went to the er after arriving and turns out I have BV. The doc seemed to think this is the source of all the bleeding because the baby, uterus, cervix, and all else look super. Has anyone else dealt with bleeds and BV? And once treated did you notice the bleeds stopped?

This happened to me at about 9 weeks hun! I had swabs abd scans and no abnormality found - but then lab results came back with BV I took antibiotics and as far as I know its cleared up. I will be having another swab at 28 weeks to check

Hello,
Love3Hope4, did the bleeding ever stop? If so, how long did it take for the bleeding to stop after you finished your course of antibiotics?
I was diagnosed with BV about a week and a half ago and I completed my antibiotics 3 days ago, my bleeding is the same. I just need to hear from somebody else that the bleeding will stop and everything will be okay.. as I'm sure you know, bleeding in pregnancy is a very frightening thing to go through..

Interesting I have never heard of BV causing bleeds like that-I know some women may get a discharge or see only a little pink when wiping but thats about it. how is this diagnosed so i can get myself checked.

My doctor did culture swabs after I had been bleeding and passing small clots for a week. In my case, the bleeding was from a mixture of the BV and an imminent miscarriage. I miscarried yesterday, but the doctor says that the BV was unlikely the cause, the cultures from my placenta won't be in until the end of the week, only then will we know for sure.

I am sorry about your loss how far along were you? I am thinking that you were further along since there was a placenta. I want to get swabs done this week.

Im sorry you had that also.

I asked the same question today at my dr. The dr said it can go either way. Nice
