Can bv/yeast infections trigger outbreaks?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

first time poster, long time lurker!

So I got diagnosed with hsv2 in October 2018 and since then i've been getting an outbreak every month, right before my period. The outbreaks have been getting less and less severe each time so drs decided not to put me on medication but then recently i got diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis and had to take a bunch of antibiotics for that (metrondiazole).

The next day i had a massive outbreak, just like my primary one. Excruciating pain! Are the two linked? Can bv or thrush cause outbreaks?

ive got a drs appointment tomorrow but just want to see if any of you ladies have ever experienced an outbreak because of thrush or BV.

Hi,

 

during my my first outbreak I thought I had a very bad yeast infection because i had unbearable itching and was swollen down below which I associated with thrush.

 

Now a year later, I’ve got the same thrush like symptoms but I’ve taken over the counter medication for it and nothing has helped. Straight after I received another OB.

 

2 weeks later the same painful itching sensation is back and it is infuriatingly itchy. Again, same time small bumps are starting to appear. I feel like the thrush is a symptom of the herpes outbreak but I could be wrong. Going to the doctors soon to get further information.

 

hope you find out if they’re related too?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
