I would like to know if I can get BV because of a herpes outbreak? Im sure the smell isn't herpes, but BV as ive had it before, herpes doesn't have an odor. Is it safe to take metronidazole and aciclovir at the same time?
Hi, i anwered in the std forum and noticed that you posted here so lets stick to this post and not the one in the std forum as it belongs here anyway,
BV is a bacterial overgrowth from an imbalance in your vaginal PH, Herpes is a virus and one has nothing to do with eachother.
Metron is an antibiotic and aciclovir is a herpes surpressant medication. The antibiotic does not affect the herpes virus but to be sure best to ask your doctor of pharmacy staff.
Hi I just noticed this post now, sorry. It's just very confusing. It's very coincidental to have them at the same time. Unless its something else all together? It's not a fishy smell but id say its worse. It's really getting me down, I can't even leave my house, I'm washing like 5 times a day. Is it possible at all to get BV because the virus affects ur immune system?
