Hopefully: Quite likely.Get a more detailed answer ›
Condoms for a while: There are no firm data. Sex can trigger BV (it's uncertain whether and how often BV is an STD), and it makes sense to wait a while for vaginal bacteria to normalize. I advise my patients to wait until finishing treatment (you've done that), symptoms are gone, especially odor; then use condoms for at least 2 weeks before resuming unprotected intercourse. Also no receiving oral sex for a few weeks. ...Read more
I have done the 7 day monistat and BV meds, but still itchy, what could be the cause? No sex in almost a year.
Resistant yeast?: Yeast often causes genital itching, but BV usually does not. A few percent of yeasts are resistant to some or all of the "azole" drugs like miconazole (Monistat). You could try a different one, like clotrimazole, terconazole, etc; they'll be in the same pharmacy section as Monistat. But if that doesn't help, you'll for sure need to see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Chronic bv. Docs keep giving metro. Works for a bit then comes back. Tried probiotics. Nothing works. Can it be cured? No sex and still comes back.
Chronic problems: May warrant an evaluation by a vaginitis specialist. If hygiene modification and Flagyl gel or pill has not been working, then their expertise may be needed. Make sure infection has been ruled out. Your doctor can also check for ureaplasma and mycoplasma to see if these organisms are present. The treatment is different. Good luck! ...Read more

If I had unprotected sex with someone who had herpes and came back clean with a diagnosis of bv, could I still have the virus? Is my BV in response?
Yes and No: HSV testing (in blood) is not definitive especially early on. BV has nothing to do with Herpes. In fact it is not even an infection but an imbalance in vaginal flora. Get retested for Herpes in blood in 3 months -any genital lesions should be cultured for a definitive diagnosis, Recommend Safe sex in future, You are not only sleeping with your partner but also with everyone he has slept with. ...Read more
Is it possible to cure BV and yeast with probiotic capsules alone. I've been treated twice for vaginitis and still have symptoms.
Anything possible: But exceedingly unlikely. If you are getting recurrence of BV you may want to have your partner apply antibiotic ointment or cream to the surface of his penis. He may be recolonizing you. There are no proven "natural" ways to address this. Probiotics are certainly not bad, will change the character of your stools, and may even inhibit recurrence but are not curative. ...Read more
I had BV and trich im taking flagyl. I had unprotected sex once while on the medication, did I get reinfected? I'm still taking the medication.
If you have a BV (jus got dx) and had unprotected sex can the acidic discharge kill the sperm or can they still live up to 24 hrs- inside the body?
If you have a BV (jus got dx) and had unprotected sex can the acidic discharge kill the sperm or can they still live up to 24-5 days inside the body?
Don't bet on it: You only need one of the millions of sperm released to get through to make you pregnant. Once the sperm make it into the mouth of your cervix, they are separated from the area involved in the vaginosis. They can then travel up into the Fallopian tubes and fertilize any available egg. ...Read more

You may need to: Check again for a different vaginal infection.

As far as BV, there is not a lot you can do other than keep the area reasonably clean but not "too clean" i.e. not too much douching or chemicals. ...Read more
My girlfriend has bacterial vaginosis that has not been treated. Every time we have sex, I develop a uti that last about one day. Is it due to the BV?
