I've been having a lot of things wrong with me, one of them is bv that i'm taking medication for...Another is a simple complication that a lot of women have and i'm not worried about....But a main concern is this infection I got after having a head cold. It's so bad, gives me terrible headaches and severe pressure in my ears that I can't pop on my own, and it's making me go deaf in my left ear and it started in my right one now too. I think I might be slowly healing on my own, but i'm worried if an infection goes un-treated, if it'll just get worse and permanently damage my hearing, or if the only meds for it can hurt the baby? I'm about 19 weeks now. Any suggestions on if I should spend money for possibly harmful medication or see if i'll heal on my own??

Sherry you need to go and see your doc.. This sounds like a middle ear infection and should be treated with some antibiotics. As you are all ready on them for the b.V. You may need a different kind to deal with both.. Make sure that when you are on antibiotics you eat some yogurt daily to keep up your good bactiera..

Yeah, I keep up on drinking a lot of milk (love it with chocolate tho ^_^). I never was sure what kind of medication the bv stuff is......Nasty little pill. I'll be done with that one in a couple of days tho.....Now should I call my normal family dr or my ob?
