BV AND HSV LINK?!

Recommended Posts

BeautyLover321

Hey all.... I found this article:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2659027/

It discusses the link between bacterial vaginosis and HSV. I am now recovering from a BV infection. It was my first one and I really hope I never get another one.

So I was wondering, what are your experiences on this...to the ladies, do you guys find that you frequently get BV infections?

Also, I must add... once I found out I was HSV positive, I bought vagisil wash for some reason (I guess to keep my downstairs as healthy as possible)..and I believe it is the reason behind my chronic yeast infections and my one BV infection. I had severe discomfort while using the wash for two months. I got a yeast infection every week!  I also developed BV as well. 

Now that I'm finally off the wash, my yeast infections disappeared..but I'm hoping the BV does not return often. So I'm trying to find out if the wash caused it by throwing off my PH or if HSV made me more susceptible to an infection. Let me know your personal experiences!

Most "feminine washes" are the worst things you can put into your vagina. They often will disrupt your pH to the point that whatever you thought was a problem becomes an even bigger one or you give yourself a whole new set of issues.

The best rule of thumb is if it is sold as a 'feminine wash/deodorant/cleanser' that it is something you should avoid like the plague.

The vagina cleanses itself and short of medicines Rx'd by a Dr don't put stuff up in there. (I've found that drug store yeast infection treatments ALSO make things worse so I avoid them whenever possible and just go straight to the Dr)

Best way to clean down there is with warm water and a very mild soap only on the outside areas. No scents, colors, ect. You're looking for something like defense soap or a scent free dye free baby soap.

Interesting article! When I initially went to get checked I thought I had a yeast infection and the results were BV & Genital HSV1. I’m new to this and hoping both symptoms don’t reoccur.

The girl who gave me HSV said she suffers from bacterial vaginosis, but she does not test positive for HSV.

      Hello,    I’m three weeks into my first outbreak, the initial ob lasted a little over a week and was excruciating. It started to calm down and I was just waiting for the red marks it had left to disappear completely when another outbreak occurred. I’m really frustrated that it’s not going anywhere and I was just wondering if this is normal? The leaflet I got did say 2-4 weeks but I was hoping to hear others experiences.    Thank you so much

      Hello,    I’m going through the same thing (I was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago) and I was just wondering if this stopped or if you’re still getting recurrent obs? I’m not sure what to do just feeling really down that it’s not going away.    Thank you for your time

      Hi,  I was very recently diagnosed with HSV-1 (just over two weeks ago) and I have had “two outbreaks” in that time. The initial outbreak happened three weeks ago and lasted about 8/9 days. It was extremely painful and I was very ill, unable to move or work and completely worn down. The blisters mainly disappeared but I still had some blemishes and discomfort so I knew my body was still fighting the virus off however, this then turned straight back into tingling, itching and then blisters again straight away. I don’t know if this is even classed as a recurrence because I never got completely over the first outbreak but I am so disheartened to have had it happen again immediately after the initial outbreak. The silver lining is that the blisters are smaller, fewer and significantly less painful.   In short, I had an outbreak immediately after my first outbreak and I want to know if this is normal to get two lots of blisters in one go?     Thank you so much for your time    K x
