Unhappy Vaginitis...rather important!

I have been diagnosed with an noncontagious bacterial vaginitis and am currently taking medication to get rid of it.

I was just wondering what to do about the underwear I have been wearing while my vaginitis went unknown. I'm not asking about what underwear I should wear, I already know about the whole cotton underwear thing being healthier and keeping me at a lower risk. I just want to know if I will get this infection again if I wear the same underwear. Should I bleach them or wash them in some...special way? Or should they be fine? Or should I go out and buy all new underwear?!

I just don't want to be at risk of this again.

Because this sucks.

Re: Vaginitis...rather important!

A 10% solution of clorox (the amounts should be on the container) should kill all bacteria. This solution will kill HIV so I would think it would kill any bacteria.

I once had to cut tiny slits in my underwear & pants for more air exchange. Dr. Dean says to avoid tight fighting pants etc. Keep any bath water clean- soap up at the end of the shower. Urinate after sex. Fam
