I have been to the gyno 4 times and have been cultured for a bunch of stuff. Nothing has come up except for beta strep (which I have been treated for twice). She even took a biopsy which really didn't show anything. I had been taking a medication for my skin (acne) which I thought might be contributing to this. I stopped taking that about 2+ weeks ago and I still don't...
