Infections Vaginal: Rebutting the Misconceptions About the Causes of Bacterial Vagi  

by Pool Builders on 03-23-2010 in Articles

Part of the problem with infections vaginal and bacterial vagi are not the conditions themself, but rather the long list of misconceptions that go hand in hand with them. For some reason, over the years people have developed a very warped understanding of the condition itself - and it has been fueled by rumors to the point where very few people actually fully understand what bacterial vaginosis really is, and how it is caused.

Here and now, we're going to rid you of some of the worst misconceptions that people have. By doing so, you should be able to save yourself from the trouble of trying to avoid things that you really have no need to avoid, and preventing yourself from doing things that you should never have to prevent yourself from in the first place!

First and foremost, the biggest misconception about bacterial vagi is that you can get it from sitting on chairs or seats after someone with bacterial vaginosis has sat on it. Frankly speaking, this is completely false. While it is true that seeping vaginal discharge may 'stain' a seat, the fact of the matter is that the bacterial infection itself is not going to spread through this manner.

Similarly, there is no way to contract infections vaginal by sleeping in a bed or on a mattress with someone who has the condition. Transmission cannot occur in this way, and so you might as well stop worrying about it - if you are, that is.

Equally as preposterous is the idea that swimming pools carry this condition if someone with bacterial vaginosis uses them. Firstly, swimming pools are heavily chlorinated and it is unlikely that any bacteria could survive there anyway. Secondly, the only reason why people with bacterial vaginosis often avoid swimming pools is because they feel ashamed due to the vaginal discharge that is a symptom of this condition.

All of these misconceptions are really pretty prevalent, but one of the most prevalent of the lot is definitely that bacterial vaginosis is a form of STD. Honestly speaking, this simply isn't true in most ways as there is no way you can pass it on to your partner if you're in a heterosexual relationship. Unfortunately, if you are in a same sex relationship then it is actually marginally possible for your partner to contract it from you - but that does not make it an STD anyway.

Rid yourself of these misconceptions about infections vaginal and bacterial vagi and you'll find that things aren't really as 'spooky' as they may seem to be!
