How do I get this infection to go away and stay away?

I have had a recurring bacterial vaginosis and yeast infection for over a year. I treat it, it goes away, and a few months later, it's back. To make matters more complicated, I don't have the typical symptoms. What originally lead me to think something was up is that I have to pee constantly, so I thought I had a UTI (which I have never had before). Turns out, I had a vaginal infection, and no UTI. It's been a year of this and I'm getting really frustrated. I'm seeing my ob/gyn next week about this, so I am not looking to metafilter as a substitute for medical advice. I want to know if there's anything I should be discussing with my doctor that I haven't already, or if I should be pushing for a referral to a specialist. More details and TMI below. [more inside]

Is crooked vaginal piping a problem?

GirlFilter: I am crooked... inside. Travelers to my vagina would find themselves taking an abrupt right turn 2 or 3 inches in. Is this normal? Do I have to marry a crooked man? [more inside]

Can blowing into a woman's vagina kill her?

Dude, we need to talk about this right here. According to Columbia University’s health Q&A Internet site, "When air is blown or forced directly into a vagina... an air embolism... could form, which can be fatal." WTF? Anyone know any more about this or have any first-hand knowledge?
