    I'm you have confirmed this by a pelvic scan, and you have vaginal discharge with or without itching. If not treated, or poorly treated could lead to infertility in the future. The best way to treat is using a tripple regimen antibiotics.

    sorry please what do u mean by triple regimen antibiotics,i am actually undergoing treatment from a gynecologist, yes i had a pelvic scan done. ok is infertility the only implication? it doesn't leave someone open to alot of illness?

    triple regimen is actually the combination of a quinolone like ciprofloxacin, or levofloxacin, with metronidazole and doxycyclin, this cocktail works best in my centre. other complications could include, risk of having an ectopic pregnancy, chronic pelvic pain, and dysparunia (pain while having sexual intercourse).
