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."

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!

      I believe it’s type 2 but apparently either strain can be found either end! So I will hopefully clarify all this in the coming week!

      @WilsoInAus https://forums.herpesopportunity.com/topic/8577-unprotected-sex-and-transmission-of-hsv2-with-no-symptoms/ Here they say we can shed the hsv2 virus up to 35% of the time. We are far from the 4% transmission rate. That rate is not for everyone. So if i always have prodome and i shed more than others my transmission rate is a lot higher than just 4% so please stop spreading false information.

      Unsure whether this is something to be worried about or not. Coming up to 3 weeks now. I’ve been to a sexual health clinic and they said there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t had sex in 6 months I’ve also never done it without a comdom. There is no fluid in them even when I’ve tried to squeeze them. There’s also 2 of them near my belly button
