I'm starting to take Bacterial Vaginosis tablets tomorrow. (Monday) When will it be okay for me to have sex?

I'm starting to take Bacterial Vaginosis tablets tomorrow. (Monday) When will it be okay for me to have sex?

Best to wait a while: Best to plan on two weeks. For sure no sex until treatment is done (a week) and your symptoms haven't returned after another week. If sex is inevitable before then, use condoms for sure -- and you may help prevent recurrence of BV by continued condom use after that. I hope you were tested for STDs. BV is not an STD, at least not usually, but other STDs are more common in women with BV. Best wishes ...Read more

No, : No, you cannot transmit bacterial vaginosis to your boyfriend. Fortunately (unfortunately) it is only something women can get. The most common reason for bad smelling discharge in a woman in a monogamous relationship is bacterial vaginosis (bv). Bv is not a sexually transmitted disease, but is an imbalance between the "good" and "bad" bacterial that normally live in the vagina. Douching and having sex can put you at risk since both activities cause a change in the vaginal environment leading to an overgrowth of "bad" bacteria. Many women will complain of a fishy odor, increased discharge and a few may even have itching and discomfort. Doctors can test your vaginal discharge to know for certain whether you have it or not. Bv is typically treated with a short course of antibiotics. You probably shouldn't have sex while being treated for BV because it can re-introduce the "bad" bacteria you are trying to get rid of and disrupt the growth of the "good" bacteria. If you must have sex, have your partner wear a condom to reduce the chance of re-infection. ...Read more
