BV for 5 months, won't go away.

Hi, I made a post a few months ago about how I was unsure if I had BV or a yeast infection. After treating myself for a yeast infection in April and not having any luck I started to suspect it might be something else, I was unable to see the doctor until late May. I also got my period on that day, since my symptoms seem to disappear whilst on my period, there wasn't a lot my doctor could do, she prescribed some anti-fungal cream and told me to come back if it didn't help, it didn't.

So two weeks ago I got my results back from my swab test and it was BV rather than a yeast infection. I was prescribed Amoxicillin which I found out wasn't normally prescribed for BV but desperate for this to end I finished my course of antibiotics and at first I thought my symptoms were gone. However, over the past few days, the horrible discharge is back.

I am extremely frustrated, I feel really unclean and my vulva feels raw, dry and sore. I hear that BV can be very stubborn and takes a few courses of antibiotics to clear. Has anyone else had experience with this and can maybe shed some light on it for me? I just feel horrendous and would really like to feel normal again.
