After getting many BV & UTU infections from sex my doctor advised that I use a betadine peroxide douche after sex. This has saved me, I'm sure, for many years. Once I was at a hotel and didn't have any betadine with me so I showered off and then went to the pool. I think the chlorine would have the same bacterial cleaning properties of betadine. It seems to have worked...no infection! The betadine has always worked at times when I think a BV is coming on and if you douched quickly you may be able to prevent it. On another not one time my doctor gave me an estrogen patch to help prevent infections because I was going through a high level of stress.
