Thank you so much for your response!

Yeah Im def wondering if the garlic made me more susceptible to BV, as I didnt have it before.

Im def taking fem-d...and waiting for the balance activ to arrive

I'm holding off on the metro gel for now..although I did pick up the metro gel as it was called in for me
but I want to see if the fem-d and balance activ do the trick first


or do you think i should use the metro gel and fem-d??
this is so confusing
I just want a normal pH in my vagina again

I dont wanna buy the pH strips because 1-they are expensive, and i dont wanna become OCD about testing my pH
Id rather just treat the overgrowth of Gardinela bacteria

but how to treat it...is really puzzling me

my menstrual cycle is about to start so my doctor told me to not use the metrogel until after my period is finished.

but i just don't want a damn yeast infection from the metro gel...
so im very hesitant to use it

It's possible the garlic caused a slight imbalance leaving you open to develop bacterial vaginosis. Garlic does have antimicrobial properties. Here is a quote from this study done on the antimicrobial properties of garlic and common plant extracts that claim to have antimicrobial activity:
I would suggest that you try to not insert garlic vaginally since it doesn't work against all yeasts. Oddly enough, I tried it at one point and according to this study, it is effective against the yeast that I had, but after I stopped using it my symptoms came back. And the garlic burned at first and caused inflammation when I used it for too long even when I wrapped it in gauze. Boric acid was more effective in my case.

You want to be careful about vaginal odors. They have a knack for starting off not so bad and getting increasingly worse as the infection starts to set it sad.gif . I suggest that you start taking the Fem-Dophilus again, especially if you want to prevent this infection from getting worse. I also suggest that you cut back on sugar or try avoiding it until this infection clears up. A diet high in sugar will hinder your immune function. I notice that cutting back on sugar helps me because whenever I do eat sugary stuff, it causes a white coating on my tongue. Apparently, it's not thrush. Just a coating. I'm still in the works of trying to figure out what that is all about. I've gotten it checked and my general practitioner says it's in relation to the fact that I have eczema and my body is just highly reactive to stimulants and certain foods. I still don't know exactly what she means by that. So I've been experimenting with anti-inflammatory things.

The vaginal flora is very sensitive. If you jump from one broad-spectrum anti-fungal to a broad spectrum anti-bacterial, you would be very lucky if nothing bad came of that. The vaginal flora needs time to recalibrate in-between treatments to prevent an infection from setting in. I hope you haven't been using antibiotics off and on for too long because that increases your chances of developing a resistant infection. Those really aren't any fun.

Try not to worry so much. Stress can actually makes your symptoms worse. I suggest that you check your pH to see if the medications your taking are helping at all, especially the BalanceActiv. You can buy pH strips off of the internet. I just purchase them at my campus store. You want it to range from 1-14.

Good luck!

Hey ladies,
so I DID'nt have BV a couple of weeks ago- I had yeast (Blech!!) went to the OBGYN, got cultured, came back YEAST... so used diflucan, and garlic (fresh raw garlic) inserted in the vagina at the same time as using diflucan because it seemed diflucan wasnt helping much.
Great news yeast is gone- I still had some weird symptoms, and some light odor. went back to the OBGYN, she said everything looked/smelled ok but did another vaginal culture... came back pos for BV yes- thats right just BV- no yeast this time

my question
1) do you think the garlic suppository caused more of an imbalance?
2) They gave me an Rx for metrogel and a pill for diflucan to take after im done using the antibiotic gel... to ensure i dont get a yeast infection

I do take fem-dophilus
so Im not sure whats going on with my body- as I have not had a vaginal infection in 3 years since using and discovering Fem-D
But the thing is, I got sick of paying $30 monthly for the 60 day supply, so i simply stopped taking Fem-D for a month, and wham all this came about.
what do u think? how do i get back on balance?
Im afraid to use the metrogel because I don't want another yeast infection
to be honest, the yeast infection was WORSE than the BV
the BV is barely giving me symptoms, just a little itchy and a little smell...
but i def wanna get balanced

I also recently purchased the newer UK product Balance Activ. which has these ingredients: Lactic Acid Glycogen, Propylene Glycol, Methylhydroxypropyl Cellulose, Sodium Lactate, Water. pH 3.8
Being its not available in the USA- it was quite expensive to have it shipped here, so I only ordered 1, seven day treatment. I guess I can try that before resorting to the metrogel... Lord I hate antibiotics

any advice??

should i treat with metrogel and risk a Yeast infection?
or should I just try balance activ and stick with taking fem-d??

grr this is sooo frustrating.
but i am happy my yeast overgrowth is gone
but i dont understand how i got BV after the yeast cleared up???

this sucks!

It's possible the garlic caused a slight imbalance leaving you open to develop bacterial vaginosis. Garlic does have antimicrobial properties. Here is a quote from this study done on the antimicrobial properties of garlic and common plant extracts that claim to have antimicrobial activity:

QUOTE(An examination of antibacterial and antifungal properties of constituents described in traditional Ulster cures and remedies)
The antimicrobial activity of the eight plant extracts against the 34 microorganisms tested is shown in Table I. No antimicrobial activity was observed with any bacterial or fungal pathogen, for onion (Allium cepa), Yarrow leaf (Achillea millefolium), Meadow sweet leaf (Filipendula ulmaria), Confrey leaf (Symphytum officinale), Ragwort (Senecio jacobaea) or for Dandelion leaf and roots (Taraxacum officinale). Only the aqueous extract from cloves of garlic showed inhibition against nine bacterial isolates (range: 630mm zone of inhibition; mean = 19.5mm) and only the Candida parapsilosis isolate was inhibited by the garlic extract (30mm). There was complete microbial confluence at the site of inoculation of the negative control,(0.1% PS) and all organisms gave a clear zone of inhibition, ranging from 1140mm diameter zone of inhibition, with a mean zone of inhibition of 23mm,when tested against the positive control (ciprofloxacin).

Our data has qualitatively shown that cloves of garlic had a limited antibacterial activity against 9/24 isolates tested and exhibited some antifungal properties against 1/10 fungal isolates examined. These data would suggest that traditional cures and remedies solely reliant on the antimicrobial properties of aqueous extracts of these plants would have little or no microbiocidal activity.

I'm happy that you are finally diagnosed! It's a wonder doctors didn't notice anything unusual. I've been in the same boat of dealing with a vaginal odor and my gynecologist claiming that she can't smell anything. How high were your levels of trimethylamine? How do you control it?

Well, I just found out and it all clicked, I am trying to figure out how to control it,(Its been really hard because everthing has choiline in it) but knowing what I have, I think is half the battle.

Oh all the gyn told me the same thing..(I dont smell anything), yea but everyone else can..smh

But most doctors have no idea about TMAU.

But thank you for everything, it mean a lot, that you took time to make your blog.. laugh.gif

Hi SnootyFox!
I've never heard of those products but there is a product in the U.K. called Balance Activ (without the "e" at the end), it specifically claims that it can help treat and prevent bacterial vaginosis. You should consider trying that if you haven't already. Most women that have tried it before say that it works well. It's not like the RepHresh Vaginal Gel, it has different ingredients.

From my personal observation, any woman that experiences constant bacterial vaginosis infections usually needs to find some long term form of treatment. It may not be a long round of antibiotics but it could be a combination of various things. You should also consider eating plain organic yogurt preferably Chobani or Stonyfields yogurt. I've been eating it regularly (twice a day) even though it doesn't taste all that great alone (Stonyfields). You can add sweet fruits like bananas and strawberries to make it sweeter. Eating yogurt mainly the kind with no B.S. in it helps keep your intestinal flora and micro flora (which affects the vaginal flora as well) in check. When a yogurt has a lot of B.S. in it, that stuff can make the situation worse and it's bad for your system anyway, so you may as well avoid it. That's why I don't recommend that people eat yogurts like Activia or Yoplait and so on. It's loaded with added sugar and artificial stuff. I've been on other forums where women that were totally healthy to begin with ate Activia and it actually caused strange vaginal odors and discharge. Once they stopped eating the Activia their symptoms went away. Activia would also cause diarrhea and constipation which is pretty counterproductive. Some yogurts have over 34 grams of sugar which is more sugar that's in an 8 oz. can of soda.

A diet high in sugar is a big no-no if your trying to heal from an infection. Because sugar actually decreases your immune function temporarily. I wrote about about this on my blog a while ago. Here is a link to the article:

1. Healthy Habits: Cut Back On Refined Sugar

It's pretty safe to say that you should stay away from foods with added sugars and substances that aren't healthy. Foods with naturally occurring sugars are good, but you definitely want to get a good helping of vegetables in your diet. Especially the ones high in fiber since fiber acts as an internal roughage and also helps the body excrete toxins faster and replenishes the intestinal tract with complex nutrients that keep the bad bacteria, yeasts, parasites, and pathogens in check. Fruits and vegetables are loaded with prebiotics, processed foods are not, and processed foods won't give your body the basic essential nutrients it needs to fight infection and stay healthy.

It's interesting how people living in developed countries are actually less healthy in many ways than those that are more primitive and eat more of a "cave man" style diet. Here is another article that you should look at:

2. Western Diet Tied to Intestinal Disease and Allergies

Good luck,

SwtSimplicity,
Thank you for taking the time to provide that info. I will check out the articles asap and start implementing that yogurt in my diet daily. Thanks so much!!!

Snootyfox, you might want to scroll through the archives of the page or use the search function, the answer to your query may lie there.


i've read the thread and wanted to know if any new members or ladies that have not posted in a while and just come to read have heard of these products, both have not been around a long time from what i understand. thanks

hello ladies, I have a few questions. I think my sequence of events started with antibiotics which caused yeast then bv then i got yeast again within 3 days on flagyl, the bv came back after two treatments for yeast. OI. I Ordered Fem Dophilus from amazon and read the box and it says keep refrigerated. It wasn't cold and I wonder if they keep it refrigerated at all since there was no stickers on the box. Usually there is a bright orange sticker. So basically I'm wondering if it's even going to work at all now. And my other question is I am starting a course of Metrogel what are your suggestions as to when I should start the FemD during or after treatment?? Any opinions welcome. Thank you.


Tebasmm,
If the product wasn't cold, I would assume some of the bacteria in it may have died already. You should just buy RepHresh Pro-B and not worry about the product parishing in-transit, both Femdophilus and RepHresh Pro-B are the same thing. You should always take probiotics along with antibiotics but not too close together. Just take the probiotic a few hours (preferably two to three hours) after you've taken the antibiotic to avoid the chances of the antibiotic killing the bacteria before it has a chance to work. You should also continue taking the probiotic after treatment for as long as you want (the longer the better), but take it for at least two weeks after you've finished your course of antibiotics.

Good luck!

hello ladies, I have a few questions. I think my sequence of events started with antibiotics which caused yeast then bv then i got yeast again within 3 days on flagyl, the bv came back after two treatments for yeast. OI. I Ordered Fem Dophilus from amazon and read the box and it says keep refrigerated. It wasn't cold and I wonder if they keep it refrigerated at all since there was no stickers on the box. Usually there is a bright orange sticker. So basically I'm wondering if it's even going to work at all now.
