BV and celibate
doctor is treating me for BV with Flagyl. I looked it up on the net and it says it is caused from being infected by a mate. Tricho something. Can you be celibate and still get this. I didn't think to ask him. Cusrious. Thanks Dyana

Re: BV and celibate
BV is caused by alot of things, not just by a mate.Its all vaginal PH screwed upI had BV for over a year!! No meds helped, Just RePHesh vaginal gel.(Walmart)It could be your mate, or douching,just an imbalance.I take Acidillious daily.(its good for BV,and keeping it away...its a PRO vitamin)Hopefully, yours goes away. Flagyl causes yeast infections too.Look BV up on web MD, theres so much more to it.

Re: BV and celibate
Thanks Sha4606. The reason he put me on flagyl is because the end of Feb. I almost bled to death and was rushed to the ER and had emergency Colon resection. During a routine blood and urine test he discovered I had a bad bladder infection. Flagyl can treat that also in case I have the infection back. To be honest I don't think I do. I itch like crazy and have had it also for over a year off and on. I have tried a product called Vagi-gard that is iodine and peroxide. I was taking AZO yeast away but with all the meds I am on I am afraid to take anything. Nothing has really helped. No discharge but itching even in hair and around my bottom. Monastat, nothing has helped. I will try the reFresh next or have him test further next week when I go in again. Thanks again,Dyana

Dyana -

You could try anti-fungal cream that guys use for jock itch. That's what the doctor told me to use on my baby girl when she had a yeast infection and it cleared within a day.

Re: BV and celibate
Frankiesmom, thanks I have tried that. I have tried diaper rash meds, boric acid, Enough to drive me crazy. I am 52 so I thought maybe a symptom of menopause but doctor thinks I am over that. The flagyl has helped a little but I have only been taking it for 2 days. There is no odor or discharge so it is puzzling. Thanks, Dyana
