Yes, it's possible and happens in about 50% of the cases.

In that case once you get it and if you are still with the same partner then he is still carrying it back to you all the time right?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago

Unfortunately, yes. That's why for our female patients with recurrent BV we actually recommend having the partner treated as well with metronidazole.

Does garlic work as well as metronidazole
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 4 months ago

Not so much for men. You can try it but usually it fails to control BV in men the way it can control it in women. But I see no harm in trying it.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
