... of the smell. Even after I went to the gynecologist and got metronidazole he said he could never forget the smell and it changed the way he saw me forever. He said he is not sexually attracted to me and “can’t be blamed for the way his mind and body react” to something like that. Honestly I’m just really ashamed and sad about it and looking for support from people who might understand. My self esteem is shot and I’m just so embarrassed. So grateful for anyone who responds to this
You will find someone who loves you in sickness or health!!! Don’t let him bring you down! I had it for 6 months straight this past year. It wasn’t easy but my fiancé stood by my side and helped me beat it! You will find someone that appreciates you and will help you through things like this. He sounds superficial and not worth your time! Good luck!
Hi BK, just hold your head high as you have the moral high ground here. Your ex has been unforgivably demeaning and has shown how little he values you as a person. BV is just an infection like any other and is easily treatable. It's okay to have a little cry over the situation but don't let his words define how you feel about yourself. Just remember that it is better to find out he is shallow now before you invest more time and emotional energy in a relationship that you are better off not being in.
Best wishes to you.
Oh honey, I hope you're healing right now. I had a similar situation and it really really hurts. But it's not you. He's a coward. He doesn't deserve you or anyone else for that matter. This is a normal part of life and has been since the beginning of time. If he couldn't handle it, he got issues.
You deserve better. It's an imbalance that many women suffer from. My fiance, completely understanding and supportive. If that guy said all that then he isn't worth your time . Some that truly loved you will support you. I do understand it's like self esteem tanks when your smell is not good. Even worse when your partner makes light of it in a bad way. I'm 38 and never had bv before, until recently. I was very ashamed and freaked out that others could smell me just sitting next to me. Then I read all these. Turns out it's pretty normal. So much support here.
