Anyone else have this while pregnant??

Has anyone else has or had bacterial vaginosis. I was diagnosed with it today. In turn caused me to have contractions every 10 min. I was wondering if any other mom's who are currently pregnant had this and if so how can you prevent it from happening again. I have medication for it but just don't want it to come back after this clears up. Oh and I am 23 weeks pregnant. By the way no bashing please I haven't had sex in two months and I only have one partner. I also don't feel the need to hide my identity because I am not ashamed just want some support..

  • I did, a couple of times. It happened once after they used latex down there which I am allergic too. But also be sure to pee before and after sex, avoid baths especially with bubbles, dont douche as it upsets your natural ph and just clean down there with a warm washcloth! But some women just get it during pregnancy, some dont! Pregnancy does weird weird things to the body lol.

  • They should just be antibiotics they are giving you. If its your ob giving you the meds then dont worry, they will let you know beforehand and of course you can always ask, if there is any potential harm to the baby. But I have had to take a couple diff meds for it and my baby turned out fine, and so far this one is looking just fine as well!
