Bacterial Vaginosis + IUD's
I was just diagnosed with BV and my dr said that although it's not necessary for me to seek treatment (antibiotics), she suggests I do due to my IUD. Why is this? Will it increase my chances of getting PID? I've been considering not taking the antibiotics because I'm not a big fan of antib's in general, but I'm worried because I think I've had BV for about a month to a month and a half now. What are the risks/concerns surrounding IUD's and BV?
