We are in our early 60’s and have sex daily. She can come from intercourse and anal. I have lots of questions about BV that MD’s don’t seem to be able to answer. My partner and I have done swinging for the past 10 years. She has on-again, off-again BV. For the past 2 years, we have almost eliminated play. If we do it, we use gloves, condoms, etc.(With other partners, we always use condoms for vag intercourse, but not for oral.) One question: If a man or woman has intercourse with another partner using a condom, for how long is the woman’s vaginal bacteria balance upset? She is post-breast cancer, so we’ve been told she cannot use vagifem to treat her BV.
