Hiya guys, I'm new here :)

Hi Tiffany, welcome to HC! Have you seen a doctor? In most cases, BV is curable with antibiotics.

Hi TiffanyDesires ---

If you have a case of Bacterial Vaginosis that has been ongoing for 3 years...WOW!

As Elle22 says, it should be cultured and then treated with antibiotics.

According to Women's Health Concern: "if it isn't properly treated, BV can cause miscarriage, premature labour, low birth weight and infection after delivery and pelvic inflammatory disease if it is contracted after surgical procedures such as hysterectomy, for example. It is even said to increase susceptibility to sexually transmitted infections such as Chlamydia, gonorrhoea and even HIV if one is exposed to the virus."

Hi,

Are you sure your BV is an STD? BV can definitely be sexually transmitted, but not always. Get a pelvic exam and get your discharge cultured. You will need antibiotics if it is positive for BV. Stay away from douching and smoking (advice from a nurse and tons of personal experience with pain-in-the-butt (or vagina, if you will) infections. Good luck!

      Anyone know anything about potential side effects?

      You obviously can’t read. Why don’t you actually read the article, or the excerpt I posted? Here it is even simpler for you: prostaglandins were shown to enhance the spread of herpes virus in cell culture 26 27 and to inhibit interferon production 27 28 and were implicated in the reactivation of herpetic skin lesions.

      Hormones definitely affect HSV outbreaks according to research. I'm a male but on anti-estrogen medication in constant trouble. Have a look at my thread here: https://honeycomb.click/topic/76903-over-4-years-with-hsv-2-symptoms-keep-getting-worse-with-non-stop-outbreaks-despite-suppressive-therapy-need-help/ 

      First page, 8th post with studies about E2 / Progesterone effects on HSV.

      It's getting pretty terrible now, I don't ever remember the last time I was feeling normal. I'm so sick of this constant flu-like feeling that makes me depressed and very unproductive. I have so many ideas and ambitions for life but I end up just doing the bare minimum due to constantly feeling like shit.  A week ago I tried stopping my anti-estrogen medication if that could have been the cause (it states "infection" in the listed, common side effects). Had my hopes up for a day or two but just got another outbreak this week that makes me want to sleep in bed all day. On top of this, now my breasts hurt because of increased E2 levels. 

      I guess I still have some hopes with new research drugs such as Crispr and Amenalief. I would order Amenalief from Japan immediately, but it costs more than my monthly rent.. I might have to start a business on top of my full time job so I can afford it. Better option than self-pity but extra stress will surely not help with the HSV2 ;)

      Probably the therapy with SADBE helps us to develop a partial immune system on HSV. If you use more SADBE you will develop more immune system on HSV. This is most likely a mechanism of action.
