First of all, of course I know it's not an STI and men can't get it.
I've been diagnosed with it the day before yesterday and given antibiotics to drink(a week's course). But I was told I can postpone the course if I'm planning to be drinking soon, because you can't mix the two. So i decided to start the course in a week. Usually the first 5 hours or something after I had a shower I feel clean and comfortable, but I notice the smell when it's been longer than that.
I met this attractive guy recently and I'm leaving soon(I was planning to start the antibiotics while I'm away). Do you think it's a good idea to have sex when I have it? In particular:
a)Will he notice the smell? I'm planning to have a shower right before it but I heard the smell gets worse after sex. And of course explaining him I have BV would be my worst nightmare...
b)Is it ok for a man 'to go down' on me when I have it?
c)Has anyone had any experience in having sex with BV? Can you tell me how it went?
d)I've also heard you are at a greater risk of getting HIV when you have BV. I don't think he has it(hopefully) and we are going to use a condom, but it still worries me.
Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
