Can using Ph balance products for awhile then not using around the time you change sexual partners cause BV?

Can using Ph balance products for awhile then not using around the time you change sexual partners cause BV?

Female hygiene: No, probably not. Your body is made to balance its own pH in a natural way. You don't need to use any store-bought products at all. Gentle soap and water is all you need, and some women find that even soap is too irritating. BV is strictly overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. Women can get it even if not sexually active. It's easy to treat, so see a doctor for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Are newly HIV infected people by law require to inform past sexual partners that they may or may not have infected?

Are newly HIV infected people by law require to inform past sexual partners that they may or may not have infected?

Depends: Laws vary by state, but this is something that obviously can't be enforced, since the patient has to provide names.

Could the use of a strong fabric softener cause an isolated incident of bacterial vaginosis? I have only  been with 2 sexual partners my entire life.

No: Bacterial vaginosis is a mild infection of the vagina caused by bacteria being out of balance. Normally, there are a lot of good bacteria and some bad bacteria in the vagina. The good types help prevent the overgrowth of the bad types. With bacterial vaginosis, there are not enough good bacteria and too many bad bacteria. Women do not need to have sex to have bacterial vaginosis. ...Read more
