  • What kind if bacterial infection? Bacterial vaginosis? UTI? STD? Condoms can help with anything vaginal. For urinary issues, be sure you go pee within 30 minutes after you finish having sex, ideally sooner. Bacteria can get pushed into the urethra, which can lead to an infection, especially if you're already prone to them.

  • Sounds like bacterial vaginosis, which is relatively common, but it can be recurrent like this if you've had it before. Circumcision has nothing to do with it (they've debunked that). It's probably something in your normal microflora or your SO's that's not happy. You might ask your doc if your SO should be treated, too, to prevent future reinfection. Good luck!

  • I have the same problem my doctor gave me a six month supply. My doctor told me to get some refresh (spelling?) that will keep your hormones balance.
