Can your husband get bacterial vaginosis?

No. My girlfriend used to get bacterial vaginosis all the time and it would sometimes cause me to get small red bumps on my penis that were quite sensitive to the touch, but they always cleared up in 24 hours.

Bacterial vaginosis is the most common vaginal infection in the world -- yes, it's more common that yeast infections. It is the result of an imbalance in the vagina's natural flora. In other words the "bad" bacteria inside your vagina are overwhelming the "good" bacteria.

Can you get pregnant while having Bacterial vaginosis?

Yes. And see a doctor.
Yes of course you can. A spermicide isn't used as treatment, it doesn't stop ovulation either. I'm not sure why your man would be wanting to have sex while you have a foul odour and bacterial overgrowth going on though. He needs to wear a condom either way.
Bacterial vaginosis is a condition in women where the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina is disrupted and replaced by an overgrowth of certain bacteria. It is sometimes accompanied by discharge, odor, pain, itching, or burning. Unpleasant it may be, but yes, you can still get pregnant. Bacterial Vaginosis does not prevent pregnancy, it does not retard pregnancy, and do not consider it any form of pregnancy protection.

Can you get bacterial vaginosis from a male?

A man does not technically pass BV to his partner. A man can contribute to the condition, as the sperm pH is higher than the vaginal pH. Bacterial vaginosis occurs when the "good bacteria" in the vagina die off and other bacteria "take over." It's not spread by sex, and treating the woman's partner, whether male or female, does not affect the outcome or chance of recurrence.

Can Echinacea be used for bacterial vaginosis?

That is probably not be the best choice. I would not recommend taking it internally since it is toxic in large doses. And if you were to use it as a douche, it would not be strong enough to really do a good job of getting rid of the bacteria.
I strongly recommend that you see your doctor because bacterial vaginosis (BV) can lead to more serious infections and may even jeapardize your reproductive health. It can be even more of a concern if you are pregnant. There are several treatment options and your doctor will pick out the best one for you. Also, BV is very common and occurs in many women, especially sexually active ones, so please don't be embarrassed about it and get medical help. This is not something that you should try and treat yourself.

Is there a reason that a person would keep getting bacterial vaginosis if anitbiotics cure it for a few days but then it comes right back?

Bacterial Vaginosis is not considered to be a sexually transmitted disease but is is seldom seen in monogomous relationships. Sometimes it is necessary to treat both partners or all three, in order to eradicate the infection. Make sure your partner is not having sex with someone else since multiple sexual partners is one of the risk factors for this infection.

Yes, it is really normal for a person keep getting BV, even if he has used antibiotics to cure it. And it is really common for BV come back if you use antibiotics as the treatment. For antibiotics couldn't permeate into the root of BV, it couldn't cure BV completely. The symptoms are easy to return after you take antibiotics.

Maybe you could try an more effective way, like herbal medicine FUYAN Pill, which

has been proven effective on cure BV with low recurrence rate by clinic cases.

Is there a cure for bacterial vaginosis?

There are several cures for bacterial vaginosis. In order to determine which one may work best with your body chemistry, I recommend reading "The Ultimate Natural Guide to Bacterial Vaginosis Relief".

As cited in Wikipedia there are several options:

Antibiotics, mainly Metronidazole and Clindamycin are used. The do the job very fast, but many women get relapses - after 3-4 weeks the problem is back. There are several side effects of the antibiotics, antabus effect is one (no alcohol). Moreover the use of Metronidazole for animals is prohibited in Europe due to it's carcinogenic effects.

Probiotics - live lactic acid bacteria. They are very recognized for gut stabilising, the effect against vaginal problems is much more debated. For some specific strains there is evidence that they can delay or eliminate the relapse after antibiotics. EcoVag is one of these.

Prebiotics is a new concept. It is a supply of nutrients for the woman's own lactic acid bacteria enabling them to grow and produce acid - thereby establishing the healthy low pH. LadyBalance is the only product on the market.

Lifestyle has great impact: Stop eating sugar, Loose weight, get rid of a hormone IUD, stop douching, finalise pregnancy, have less sex.

Is shaving of pubic hair cause bacterial vaginosis?

I am happy to answer this question as a specialist. Pubic hair is there to protect the vagina for being infected and to keep the sweat away from it, pubic hair can absorb sweat but if you shave it, you are more likely to be infected and to get sick so easily, that can also cause you to get so many rashes. The fact that you shave don't simply mean you are clean or you are not nasty if you don't clean it, you can have lots of pubic hair and be clean at the same time as long as you wash it and clean your vagina often. Pubic hair protects the vagina from dusts, rashes, sweats, It's way better and better not to shave, believe it or not. Let's go back to the old days, Caribbean and most European women don't shave at all, according to a medical survey, Women who shave in AMERICA have more vaginal infections during the last 20 years than the women in the Caribbean and in Europe. BELIEVE IT OR NOT.The society in America wants you to shave because they want to make more money over you and they don't care about your own health.

Bacterial vaginosis should your partner take antibiotics too?

Your partner can't "catch" it. There is no evidence that treating a partner prevents recurrence in the patient.
