My partner is being treated for bacterial vaginitis (BV). We started our relationship abpout 3 months ago and then problems began to occur, We tested for all the Sti`s and all my tests were clear. She however tested positive for BV, every other test was negative. She is now receiving treatment. However she blames me for her condition and I find it hard to accept I passed on anything to her. Our relationships is now very bad and I cannot convince its not my fault but I do want to ask is she right when she says its my fault?
Well some authorities seem to class BV as an STD, but Wikipedia's article says "Although BV appears to be associated with and triggered by sexual intercourse, there is no clear evidence of sexual transmission." Apparently There is normally some Gardnerella in the vagina, but it is kept in check by Lactobacillus bacteria. For some unknown reason sex can alter the balance.
Very true, infact I get regular yeast infections with regular sex. So now I just stay on acidophilus pills, and eat yogurt regularly to help keep the floura in check.
