Can bacterial vaginosis or other vaginal infections kill you if left untreated?

Unlikely

Syphilis
BV definitely can't kill you. Other STDs can have serious complications. Gonorrhea can migrate to other areas of your body and cause real problems, as can syphilis. If you're worried you have an infection, definitely be see as it's worth it. Can always go to family planning clinic or community clinic as they have slide scale or free treatment. Don't hesitate if you're worried!

Although BV will sometimes clear up without treatment, all women with symptoms of BV should be treated to avoid complications. Male partners generally do not need to be treated. Recommended Regimens: *Metronidazole 500 mg po BID x 7 days; OR *Metronidazole gel 0.75%, one full applicator (5 g) intravaginally, once daily x 5 days; OR *Clindamycin cream 2%, one full applicator (5 g) daily x 7 days

Hi , I have recently just had two misscarriages in a row . I am just woundering if bacterial vaginosis is the cause of it ? I had it 5 years ago.

BV and Miscarriage

Bacteria
I do not think there is a link between early pregnancy loss and BV. There are studies, however, linking bacteria that cause BV to preterm labor.
