Sorry, left out a lot there. Originally diagnosed by swab and maybe blood test I think, but it was a long time ago. I have only ever had vaginal symptoms, maybe 1 lesion or so every 1-2 years.
I ended up going to urgent care that night to ease anxiety and they determined it as laceration and negative swab tests. They prescribed an antibitoic ointment which I used for a day or two. All healed fine.
14 days later I developed symptoms of a yeast or other infection. The symptoms went away on there own in two days, but I kept the appt I had scheduled just in case (6 days after symptoms) Tests from that were all negative for sti, positive for yeast and bv. I took the single day RX for the yeast and held off on the BV RX as I had something to go do and wanted to delay side effects.
2 days after taking the yeast med, unfortuneately I had unprotected vaginal sex and had oral attempted with some contact, and no suppression meds. It was very quick, minimal contact, but contact nonetheless. I know that is irresponsible and contraindicated with the other infections and regret the event and situation.
What I was wondering is:
1. Does BV increase the liklihood of shedding the virus? I read it increases risk of acquiring HSV and HIV, but I can’t find anything on transmitting. Would HSV1 or 2 increase/decrease this liklihood? If he does acquire something, symptoms would show in around 2 weeks right? He would be at risk of genital and oral right?
2. I’ve read that yeast/BV can be transferred to males, but not often and if it does, you don’t often do anything. Should I notify him of these infections? How long would symptoms of yeast/bv take to appear?
3. I Will get my MD to order the IGG or WB to type test. Is it best to stay off the antivirals pre-test to get accurate results? Does the presence of yeast/BV affect results?
4.Is there any reason for other concerns? After the encounter, I plan on getting fully tested again, how long should I wait to test?
Thank you SO much!
