Ordinarily, I'd give this a sensible chuckle and pass along, but I'd like to share a ridiculous coincidence.

Yesterday, I hauled my 15MO grandson, Casper, onto my la[ in front of the computer and let him play with the keyboard and mouse. As usual, things got weird, but the first ting was that he managed to pull up a browser session and banged in a random bunch of characters starting with "bv". Google obliged by bringing up a search page including quite a few links regarding Bacterial Vaginosis.

Never heard of it before myself, but I found it entertaining. Good to see that there are therapies available.

I've seen this video.  It's not as clinical as you'd think for a medical procedure.  But I found the first half very interesting.

I can't help but wonder about this. If healthy vaginal flora can be restored by introducing fluids from another person, is it possible that the bacterial vaginosis does not persist but is being constantly reintroduced? Like maybe with our sex education programs we should include some information on genital hygiene, because if a woman keeps getting treated and going back home to the same partner who isn't suffering the same symptoms, they're probably getting reinfected. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Wasn't Ben Shapiro concerned with bacterial vaginosis recently?

We're just going to put a bit of color here and make a happy little vagina.

Somewhere, a white suburban woman is trying to turn this treatment into a pyramid scheme involving pressuring friends into attending 'parties'.

Or, perhaps, the issue is the other way around, and that what she really needs is a big ol' squirt of toxic benzalkonium chloride, right in the hoohah. Why should Dave be blamed for her intimate neglect?

You're lucky. My grandson managed to change some random stuff. Took me a while to figure out how to change it back.  Nothing important, just UI options.

It's my understanding that most women suffer cervical cancer due to their dudes having dirty dicks.

He was worried, but was quickly assured that it only affects actual vaginas, not dumb coonts like himself.

On a slightly more professional note . . . the article says that an acidic environment helps inhibit the bad virus. Would a regular vinegar douche be efficacious?

kkinnison: It is called a sympathy fark and double dipping the winglady


What I'm hearing is that young women should pair up to have threesomes with men for optimal vaginal health.

I want to approve of that message.

I'm not one of those fancy, college-educated doctors, but I'd heard/read somewhere that BV can result from new sexual partners, presumably as a result of differing populations of dick-fauna colonizing the vaginal canal. If true (and wow I'm not sure) then maybe this is one those 'leave it to the medical doctors' things instead of finally convincing your wife to let you bareback both her and her best friend in the same night?

But... I don't LIKE that answer.  Can we find one that favors me, the man?

lurkey: My wife says non-breathable fabric in women's underwear is to blame.
I say let's ban ALL the panties, just to be safe.


It's true finding 100% cotton in anything but granny panties is impossible. And then yoga pants. Yoga pants suffocate the bits with polyester+spandex which then get the bad kind of moist and blammo BV or Yeast. Nasty.

NO DOUCHING

BUT the secret weapon of happy acidic lady bits
Boric acid vaginal suppositories

Rebalance PH with creates a happy environment for the good critters, a hostile environment for bad microorganisms like yeasts and that fishy one (never had it so I don't remember the name), and helps the vagina self lubricate to flush out any nasties.

What's boning 2 chicks got to do with new dick flora in your wife or sister's cooches?

I'm surprised the article doesn't make any mention of fecal bacteria transplants as an analogous treatment.
