Is this Bacterial Vaginosis? ive never done this before but this has been bothering me the last few days and i need help. I just started my period and use tampons. The past days though, ive felt my undies become wet along with my pants and when i check it

You

You need to be seen and examined, and to have culture swabs taken to find out what type of infection it is. Possibilities include chlamydia, gonorrhea, Trichomoniasis, but there are other possibilities as well. Please be seen immediately as these types of infections can cause serious problems.

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.

What can you use over the counter for bacterial vaginosis?

Not much

Bacteria
Over-the-counter medications are unlikely to treat your infection. Bacterial vaginosis is treated with medicine. Two different medicines can be used. They are called: Metronidazole Clindamycin Both of these medicines come in different forms. They can come as a pill or as a gel or cream that a woman puts inside her vagina. Most women have fewer side effects when they use the gel or cream treatment
