I was in excrutiating pain during the exam. The Dr put his fingers inside and it hurt to the left, to the right and in the middle. I was called back to his office 10 mins later and told I was positive for BV and that I probably had PID as well. I broke down crying in frustration, as this has always been my biggest fear, and I spend my life getting tested to make sure this never happened. How is this possible, after spending so much time and money seeing doctors and getting swabs sent off to the lab? The Dr told me it was very unlikely to be caused by BV, so either I had several false negatives on my STI tests, or he told me it could have been caused by the colposcopy I had in September (which I also brought up with the doctor last time I saw her and she told me no, that was incredibly unlikely).
I have to go back in 2 weeks to find out more about what's wrong with me. I just can't help feeling utterly depressed and angry that I went over and above what was 'normal' to make sure I was healthy, and now I find out that my worst nightmare is coming true.
