Thick substance after BV
Posted on: 01/15/2008
hi, i am 15 years old and i noticed that i was itching. when i touched myself to see what it was, there was a thick substance and it really scared me. i just got finished taking my medicine for bv, but the doctor never told me that this was going to happen. do i need to go back to my doctor, or is this normal? PLEASE HELP
You sound scared, so that is enough of a reason to call and see the doctor. You can also ask for a re-check to make sure that the BV is gone/cured. Good luck!
