recurrent bv from partner

Posted , 4 users are following.

Whenever i slept with my partner i got Bacterial vaginosis (BV) and was on on antibiotics monthly. When we started using condoms it went away, then we tried again and boom i got it again. Hes the only one i have experienced with this with. I cant use condoms for the rest of my life as im now 38 and and want to try have a baby, but i cant if i get BV constantly from him. I have been taking acidophilius 50 billion for a year now and i have asked him to start taking them. Do you know any other ways to make this work so we dont have to use condoms? its a big problem in our relationship. Anyone experiencing the same or know the answer?

    Have you tried suppositories? I used VH and haven't had a problem since now I use them every so often.

      Nope but do you think this would work? The dr said there is no point to treat him. My partner also went for a check up and they said he was fine. The problem is that my body doesnt like his bacteria for some reason and then i get BV from that.

    I'm sorry, as I have a new partner & am experiencing the same problems, but I'm over childbearing. I wish u the best of luck. This is horrific.
