And Flagyl does not treat this kind of Strep BV. Does anyone know any more info about this if so PLEASE let me know. I have been miserable for almost the past year and just learned that recurrent and untreated BV can lead to PID (Pelvic Inlfammatory Disease) which causes sterility which I DO NOT WANT!!! Sorry this is so long I just need some answers. I am on the Pill and my boyfriend and I dont use protection so does his semen make my BV infection come back?
Seman can do it! It lowers your vaginal ph.I only know of 1 kind od BV,the kind that sucks! Nothing worked for me,there is a Gel Metrogel...but it causes yeast, as does Flagyl.I had it for over a year.the only thing that helped was rePHesh (Walmart) because it balances out your vaginal ph.In some other posts, some woman had long posts about douching with paroxide/water.I dunno.I wish you luck. I know it sucks!! Keep your chin up hun!!
