Re: BV..Yeast infection

BV is often confused with yeast infections - they are not the same thing and they require different types of treatment. Do a google search to read more about it.

Re: BV..Yeast infection

Yes I have BV and have for about the past 2 years. It's a pain in the butt to get rid of. I have even switched doctors trying to get rid of this. Going back next week to see him.

Re: BV..Yeast infection

For 2 yrs?????? omg..Im starting the medication tomorrow & have to make an app in 2 weeks...I read that you can get it from wearing thongs,tampons or not using a condom,although it stated it ISNT an STD..Ive had unprotected sex w/ an STD FREE partner..wonder if that has anything to do with it..I also wear thongs & have been for the past 7 yrs or so,same thing w/ the tampons.I do not have any of the symptons though
