no echinacea and goldenseal never did anything for me. and i've taken it a lot. mostly for colds.

i didn't do the calendula suppository last night because what i have is called a tincture. which is herbs soaked in alcohol and then the liquid is put in a container. so i got worried that alcohol is bad for going in there... what do you think? my smell isn't really bad anymore at all. it's just discharge now and i hate that feeling i want to be dry sad.gif

Yeah, you shouldn't use it if it's a tincture solution. The alcohol could really hurt you if you douche with it, or put it into a suppository. The vaginal walls are very delicate, so putting something as drying as alcohol onto it would literally hurt.

My advice personally stick to doing what you doing!! Just don't over do it as you say the smell is light and that a good thing but you don't want to use something else that can probably trigger a bad smell. If the smell is not bothering you no more than wait it out see if your vagina will self treat itself so the discharge will stop then trying to get something else to stick up there to be dry. I use to think Lori was CRAZY AND MEAN when she said she been doing anything to keep the bv away but
- normal hygiene stuff
- try to exercise and eat healthy (the operative word is "try")
- stick something in it or on it once a month when it bleeds
She's freaking RIGHT!!! It took me awhile to realize it. I already spend $400 worth of products that never work for me.
WE CAN'T FORGET WERE TRYING TO GET OUR VAGINA BACK TO NORMAL AND WHEN I MEAN BACK TO NORMAL HAVE SEX WITH YOUR HUBBY/BOYFRIEND,TAKE BUBBLE BATH, GO OUT IN PUBLIC AND WEAR OUR SEXY CLOTHES WITHOUT HAVING TO DO NOTHING BEFORE OR AFTERWARD.
REMEMBER WE CAN'T BE STICKING A MILLION AND ONE THING IN OUR VAGINA IT COULD BE THE REASON WHY IT IS STILL THERE BCUZ WERE NOT GIVING OUR VAGINA A CHANCE TO COME BACK TO NORMAL. IF YOU FOUND A PRODUCT THAT WORK FOR YOU TO STOP THE SMELL THAT'S GREAT BUT JUST DON'T OVER DO IT !!!!!!

Mcf10 was a great help also on this board she introduce us to a good product which is the ONLY thing i use the boric acid which knock out my smell. Now that the smell calm down it now my turn to do what i can to stay healthy by exercising and eating more healthy (i always fail on that one but I'm going do my best) less sex (damn that hurt but i gotta do what right for me) LESS STRESS. I keep everyone updated on my journey of getting rid of bv.

SORRY PLZ DON'T THINK I'M CRAZY OR A BIG MEANY IT'S TRUE!!!

Did you notice any changes when you took the echinacea with the goldenseal? I remember, prior to my infection clearing up, I took a capsuled goldenseal supplement every morning before breakfast, and I could've sworn the odor and discharge was dissipating. I'm not sure if it was my mind playing tricks on me. I was also taking it with a probiotic at the time, but it was a regular acidophilus supplement, so I don't think that could've made that much of a difference. After it ran out, I didn't buy more. By then, I was already taking a prescribed medication that later cleared up my infection.

oh, and i've taken golden seal a bunch of times. i take echinacea(sp?) with golden seal in it. i've always preferred treating anything with herbal remedies rather than antibiotics.

Have you tried an herb called golden seal root? I remember how my mother used to say how it was good for the immune system and a variety of other ailments. She grows it in her garden, so she can take it everyday. Her mother was Mojave Indian and a firm believer in natural medicine. I used to believe natural medicine was hocus pocus, until I did a little research, and found out there are some herbs that do have medicinal properties.

I hope your aware of the risk factors that come with douching. I know how stressful it is to have to deal with a vaginal odor. But even as desperate as I was, I never douched. Sometimes I think, if I had douched, the infection would've came back mellow.gif. I've noticed a lot of the women that have tried douching get reoccurring infections. Maybe you can try calendula suppositories, it's less damaging to the body.

there are a lot of uses for kreosotum. this website lists them:

also... if you look here it is listed as a remedy for yeast:

calendula is an antiseptic and i think you can douche with it too. it's mentioned in this article:

http://www.bacterialvaginosisrecurrent.com..._vaginosis.html

i got the remedy originally from here:

http://abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/99552/
i'm still doing this remedy. i can still smell it a little bit. my boyfriend doesn't notice anything, or says i smell normal. so i'm not sure if it's just me being crazy or if it's really there. i think it's there a little bit but nowhere near as much so whatever i'm doing is definitely working. (primadophilus reuteri, folic acid, kreosotum and calendula.) i might try douching with calendula soon to get rid of the smell completely.

hi ladies. i posted here recently saying i was using hydrogen peroxide to keep mine away. well i stopped using that because i kept needing to use it more often and i felt like that couldn't be good.

since then i've been taking primadophilus reuteri, folic acid and something i found on a homeopathic website called kreosotum. so far, i don't really smell that much and my discharge isn't bad. it isn't gone completely but my boyfriend says he doesn't notice anything. i'm not sure what is working right now since i'm using all 3 at once, but i'm going to continue to use them since it's helping a lot. i'm also using calendula and washing with that. i found the kreosotum and calendua remedy on a homeopathic website.

i've been taking 2 drops of kreosotum 30c potency in a small amount of water (i drink it in one sip) 4 times a day. i got that from this website: <a href="http://www.hmedicine.com/homeopathic/dilutions/J-L/Kreosotum" target="_blank"><a href="http://www.hmedicine.com/homeopathic/dilutions/J-L/Kreosotum" target="_blank">http
://www.hmedicine.com/homeopathic/dilut.../J-L/Kreosotum
</a></a>

i put a few drops on my fingers of the calendula and wash with that. i got that from the same website. i got the tincture form of this. here is the link to that: http://www.hmedicine.com/homeopathic/tinct...ula_Officinalis
i only been taking one primadophilus reuteri pill a day and one folic acid (i'm not sure how many mg.) i've been doing these 4 things for about a week now and i definitely notice a huge difference, i will keep you updated in a few days on how i am doing with this.

good luck to everyone else, hope i can help maybe a little!

hello... i haven't been on here in a long long time. because my bv was gone. i stopped having sex for a while since i was single and it went away, so having sex is what triggers mine. recently i started having sex again and of course the bv came back. to keep it away i have been doing hydrogen peroxide douches once or twice a day and after sex. i use half water half peroxide. and i keep it in there for about 30 seconds to a minute. this keeps it away for me but i'm wondering if that is bad for you. has anyone tried this and had any problems? i have to do this every day because if i stop it comes back... right away.
also, i am taking primadophilus reuteri. i've used this before and it always helped.



Hey anitsirhc,

From what I know, hydrogen peroxide douches are bad. The douche could be spreading the infection into the cervix, causing a disease known as pelvic inflammatory disease. It's removing all of the bacteria that it comes into contact with, including the beneficial bacteria (lactobacilli) that actually keeps the vagina healthy, and hydrogen peroxide is also considered poisonous according to the National Institute of Health (click.) I don't even think hydrogen peroxide should be used in the vagina. It's used for cleaning and disinfecting cuts/scrapes as far as I know. It wasn't until I was introduced to this forum that I heard it can be used as a douche. In my opinion, douching in general will do the vagina more harm than good.

It's great that your taking a probiotic, probiotics are always a plus when it comes to preventing infections and what not. After all, the digestive tract plays a big role in your immune system. Although, I'm not too sure that the strains your taking actually colonize the vaginal tract. I'd rather not be repetitive but, if your bacterial vaginois came back, your better off just getting prescribed medication for it before you self treat.

Peace,

I know you feel incredibly miserable because of all of this. I practically went through hell and back while I had a simple yeast infection. I couldn't imagine having to deal with all your going through.

Your gynecologist should examine you whether you have an odor or not. If you feel like your not being heard by your gynecologist, you should seriously consider seeing someone that actually wants to help you.

This makes me think back to the time my grandmother first came to this country, she couldn't speak very good English. One day, she said that she felt a small lump in her right breast. She went to a doctor that could understand her. This doctor prescribed her coumadin, which is a blood thinner, because the she assumed my grandma had a blood clot in her breast. My grandma took the medication religiously hoping the lump would go away. It never did. By the time the lump in her breast was finally diagnosed as cancer two years later, it was too late. The cancer had already spread throughout her chest and lymph nodes. Nonetheless, she still did the treatments, her hair was falling out, she could barely control her bowel movements because the cancer had spread so quickly to her intestines. The poor woman suffered so much. I remember how she would cry out in pain and break down in tears at night, and how I picked her up from the hospital one day after her chemotherapy, the sky was grey and cloudy as if it was ready to down pour. It took her so long to get out of the car, by the time she got to the front door, it started storming. I can just picture her, slowly walking with that little cane in her hand, while it just keeps raining and raining. She was soaked by the time she got through the front door.

My grandma was a tall, healthy, well postured, happy woman, with a full head of long thick hair and smooth radiant skin. During her final stage of cancer, she was the total opposite. The cancer spread throughout her bones, making her shrink in size. Her bones got so thin, if she sneezed, she would break one. Her hair turned from black, thick and shiny, to thin, greying and patchy. Her skin was wrinkly and transparent. It was as if I was looking at a shell of a person.

After my grandma died, my family went on to prosecute the doctor that caused her death, and soon found out this doctor happened to be one of those doctors that had many malpractice lawsuits. The doctor had prescribed the wrong medication to several of her other patients.

Something as simple as a lump in the breast turned into something so much worse. And then I think of the persistent bleeding that your dealing with and I have the most tragic thoughts racing through my mind.

My grandmother was once in a similar situation as you, her doctor was quick to right her a prescription without actually helping her, and as a result of that, she died. Not only did this phony doctor prescribe her a blood thinner for a lump in her breast, she kept giving her higher doses each time it didn't work! As a result of this, she died a very painful death. sad.gif .

I'm so sorry to hear what happen to your grandma. I hope your family sue the hospital an that doctor.
It's upsetting how doctor don't take the time to listen to their patients instead of thinking they don't know their bodies. I've been telling my doctor severely times about my hot flashes and they brush it off like I'm lyingand do another blood test. when i talk about my bv they give higher dose of flagyl which never work for me. I'm going to a different obgyn this appointment and i'm going get a full body examination hemorrhoids, bv, hotflashes,and the bleeding. GOOD LUCK TO ME!!!!
