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.

      Medical knowledge in the 50s doubled every 50 years. But guess how fast the knowledge is doubling now? 1 year. Cures are coming. This is why there is a worldwide debate on healthcare. Some want to own your health others want the cures for free. You being desperate will trample on the next person to get it whereas someone else will hope the cure is free for all.  The fight isn't for a cure anymore it's for who owns the cure. The people or the elite. With medical knowledge doubling every year and soon every 6 months with the assistance of AI a cure will be ready by 2025.  Finally the west has competition who wants to be the world's leader; China. They want to cure diseases because they want rid of capitalism and religion. May the winner have it all.

      This isn't some 1940s crime detective novel mate! We don't have process of elimination, we have active diagnosis. But to hell with that. You do not have to prove anything to doctors. They're just a bunch of clowns with meaningless tests! You're the man, you make the decisions. Whether you think you have herpes, or whether you think you don't, you're right. Be a man, be confident, if you have HSV-2 then own up to it. Stop camping around at doctors offices. Stride right back to that girl in your loosest jocks with lots of stretch room for those swollen gonads. Slam open the bedroom door and announce you're here to show her what a night with real man feels like, minus Trojans!

      To answer your question, I have been living with pain and burning in my penis for a year now.  My symptoms started within 48 hours of attempted sex with someone who has HSV2. Doctors can’t figure it out.  I’m 90% certain HSV2 is the culprit.  All my issues started directly after the exposure.  Itching, tingling, constipation, nerve burning, testicle pain and back pain. And they all come and go. I only got a large bump in my pubic area days after the exposure.  A large amount of people with herpes don’t get typical looking lesions, so you can’t base it on that.   Hopefully you find your answer.  I pretty much have mine but have to prove it to my doctors by way of elimination.

      OMG if I had only known that 5 years ago... doctors have no clue of this.
