Hi guys, first time poster, long time lurker! So I got diagnosed with hsv2 in October 2018 and since then i've been getting an outbreak every month, right before my period. The outbreaks have been getting less and less severe each time so drs decided not to put me on medication but then recently i got diagnosed with bv and had to take a bunch of antibiotics for that (metrondiazole). The next day i had a massive outbreak, just like my primary one. Excruciating pain! Are the two linked? Can bv or thrush cause outbreaks? ive got a drs appointment tomorrow but just want to see if any of you ladies have ever experienced an outbreak because of thrush or BV.
