TTC and BV...?

So I am annoyed right now... because I am entering my fertile week (no, I didn't O early!) and today I just found out I have BV. So I'm wondering if this can lower my chances of conceiving. Anyone know? I *think* I found out I had BV right before I got pregnant with Ethan but that was almost 3 years ago and I can't remember for sure.

I'm about to go to GNC and get some Women's Ultimate Flora Probiotic. The reviews on it are awesome so I'm confident that will clear it up... but idk if it'll be in time for O day! Jeez... it's always something...

I would think the only negative impact would be sex being uncomfortable. I've never had it, but I've had a yeast infection more times than I'd like to count and I couldn't imagine BDing during it.

Is it provide bacterial vaginosis (spelling?) I'd think it may cause a hostile environment for sperm.

Lol ... Not stupid. I use abbreviations too much it is bacterial vaginosis. Basically an imbalance between the good and bad bacteria that are naturally in the vagina. I'm pretty sure too much sex is what did it. The semen can throw off your ph balance.

I'm starting the probiotics tonight and I *should* O in 7-9 days so hopefully it'll go away before then!
