Bacterial Vaginosis Prevention
Yeast infections are very common and will likely be experienced by the majority of women at least once in their lifetime, and they are usually very treatable with over-the-counter the medications.
There are some women who are shy about this and might refuse the doctor to do so. The next test is to take some vagina fluids for chemical testing in the laboratory.
Here are some common steps to prevent bacterial vaginosis and lower your risk of being infected.
One of the areas regarding sexual intercourse that also is not taught is about hygiene after sexual intercourse.
Women are always commenting that the underwear they wear contributes to their bacterial vaginosis re-occurrences.
To answer this question, think of how infections are spread. Obviously, someone won’t be breathing it in, or will they? Well, if they are having oral sex with the vagina of a woman who has bacterial vaginosis, then it’s possible to be breathing it in–in high quantities through the mouth and nose. When this occurs, the person now has large amounts of the microbe in his or her mouth, throat and possibly nose.
It’s common to hear about oral hygiene that includes brushing your teeth, tongue, and gums as well as flossing. It’s also common to hear about the importance of good hygiene, which means bathing and smelling fresh.
If you have bacterial vaginosis, you are well aware of a fishy odor that is found in your vaginal secretions.
The odor worsens after sexual intercourse, which makes sense because during sex, the vaginal secretions increase. However, knowing that doesn’t make it any easier; what do you do?
Having bacterial vaginosis is frustrating!
The fishy odor follows a woman everywhere she goes and she never feels clean. On top of that, she may have vaginal irritation and also a grayish discharge that keeps staining her panties.
The main reason why women get bacterial vaginosis is that their vaginal flora is out of balance.
Just as there are good and bad bacteria found inside the intestinal tract, there are good and bad bacteria found inside the vagina. The good bacteria are bacteria that keep the tissues healthy and do not cause any type of disease. The bad bacteria are bacteria that can cause disease if their numbers increase.
