That's good to hear neverending! I'm thinking of switching from the Mirena IUD to the Nuvaring. I heard it's supposed to increase the good flora in the vagina. How long have you been using it? Any crazy side effects?


I know everyones bodies are different, but i tried the nuvaring and I bleed for 5 weeks straight. I took the ring out and spotted for a week and then started bleeding again for a week and a half. I hated it. It was horrible. I felt bloated all the time, had awful headaches, and cramping... I bleed really heavly as well.

Well all....it seemed like everything was going so well, and BAMMMMM.... here it is again. I didn't even do anything. No sex at all this weeked. And woke up this morning, went to the bathroom, and had air bubbles coming out. That's the first sign for me that it's back. And the smell, is horrid. I don't know why I never just get small cases of B.V. anymore. When I get it now, it's FULL BLOWN.

I'm so frustrated.

I don't get it, I really don't.



I'm sorry to hear that it's back. We all can relate. Do you think your system (bacteria) has built up resistence? I agree with jularee about the probiotics. Remember a while back many of us were inserting the probiotics vaginally and taking them orally together. Maybe that will help until you get your flagyl. Keep us posted.

Hello. I am new to the forum. I just recently found out that I have BV. I have just been so frustrated with it and just want some support. I have read through many of the comments and have seen a lot of the similar things I am going through. My husband and I are trying to have a baby and this has made things very difficult. My doctor has told us to not have sex. Which we all know is a key part in baby making. This is the first time I have gotten BV. Both my husband and I have never had sexual experiences with anyone else. So it is just upsetting to me when I read about BV on other websites and it says that is a very common way to get BV. Has anyone on here figured out why they have gotten BV. I am only 20 and my doctor told me it is really rare for someone as young as me to get this... Please help... Thanks.

Good morning everyone...I'm trying goldenseal...I think it's been a week now...day three into the trial.. ..I had some thick white discharge..maybe it was a yeast infection, but no itching or burning..but..I'm not sure..it looked more like cum (sorry). Anyways.. it's now gone and I'm not ovualating yet, so I know it wasn't that... the white discharge is gone...and I'm not stinking, nor any discharge. I also havent had intercourse for almost 6 weeks, so I'm sure thats helped some. I haven't started the probiotics...gonna start back on those in a few more days.. I have cut out sugar..no soda...and I try to drink at least 4 bottles of water a day. I still have two cups of coffee each morning..but I just use honey instead of sugar.. I still have 2 servings of fruit a day. Anyways, the outcome won't be observed until my next period ..or I have sex. Oh, by the way..it has helped a lot with my ears always feeling like they have fluid on them...

I tried switching from malboro lights to camels..but they suck...but I'm gonna quit smoking here soon..after the last pig flys by my house. lol.


Glad to hear the goldenseal is working well for you. And it's only been a week? That's awesome. Please keep us updated with your progress. I'm currently taking Primadophilus Reuteri, Folic Acid, Garlique, and B Vitamins. So far so good. No odor or discharge. I'll keep you ladies updated!

Aww jewelscando I'm so sorry to hear that! I completely understand how frustrated you are. From previous posts, I know you've tried a little bit of everything, but I was wondering if you've tried taking more probiotics? I take two 5 billion CFU pills in the morning and two 5 billion CFU at night and it seems to be working great for me. Maybe try increasing the dosage from two pills to four for a while to see if this make a difference? Good luck!

Hi..where are you all buying the primadophilus from? And is the primadophilus reuteri and the primadophilus bifidus the same pill? How much does it cost?

Primadophilus reuteri and the primadophilus bifidus are different from each other in that they contain different combinations of strains of bacteria. I experimented with a few different kinds, and found that one worked better for me than the other. And maybe everyone will prefer something different because everyone is missing more of one bacteria than another. Not sure. I looked online, and seems that there aren't that many tests done yet to determine which strains are missing in women that have BV. There was at least one study that showed that women with BV had reuteri and rhamnosus missing. But maybe there are others missing as well. I think that everyone should try one kind of probiotic, and if it doesn't seem to be working, then try a different one.

I ordered my Primadophilus Reuteri from http://www.iherb.com/ProductDetails.aspx?c...d=4674&at=0. This is the exact one I purchased. It's a great website and it ships the probiotics with an ice pack. I got a bottle with 90 caps for about $20, including shipping. Hope this helps! Keep us updated. smile.gif



Thanks! I just bought FemDophilus today. The two products are very similar. I tried Ultimate Flora in the past and it helped so hopefully the FemDophilus will be a success. I'm going to try it with Oregano Oil capsules, watch my sugar intake, and see what happens. I'll keep you ladies posted.

Hi Ladies! So I finished the entire bottle of Femanol. It worked pretty well for me I have to say. Due to cost, I won't be ordering another bottle. I recently started taking Primadophilus Reuteri, Garlique, B6, and Folic Acid. The reuteri says to take one capsule daily, but I've been taking 2 caps in the morning and 1 before bed to kinda jump start things a bit. I take the garlic, B6 and folic acid at lunch. Hope this continues to work as well as the femanol did. I'll update you guys in a week or so with my progress.

just an update... i've been taking the primadophilus reuteri for a few weeks now and i'm almost positive that my bv is gone. i have hardly any discharge, no smell, no itch, no burn. i feel great! i had sex and it didn't hurt. (i used a condom though, haven't tried it without yet cause i'm scared it will make it come back.) i got my period last week and the bv came back right after (i was also away for 2 days in a hotel and i couldn't bring the pills with me cause there was no refrigerator so i just didn't take them.) so the bv came back a little bit but i just took 2 pills instead of 1 for 1 day and it was gone after that. so i really think this is working for me. if it's not completely gone it's definitely helping a lot. i feel so relieved. i hope other people are successful!

Hi Ladies,

It's been a very long time since I've been in here. Glad to see a lot of the old busties still posting! I'm also glad to see some new remedies being shared..I'm writing everything down. I'm still struggling with BV. I hadn't tried anything in probably the past 6 months..just wanted to give my body a break. But last night, I was feeling not-so-fresh (to put it mildly) and did an HP wash and I starting thinking about tackling this BV again. Sigh. I'll post if I have any luck.

I haven't had any side effects at all. I am a little wetter which makes me happier because sex is more enjoyable.

Sorry girls, this is somewhat of a derailment. Thank you so much Callie for saying that we should cherish our bodies. I'm barely 21 and other girls my age think I am such a prude for thinking that same thing. Now I know I'm not the only one. cool.gif

Hi again,

Well, you all know I'm desperate about getting rid of this horrible BV, right? So, I'm on day 3 of using Enzara, and you know what? I noticed just today the smell is not there. It could be my imagination, don't know really. Only wanted to keep the rest of you posted. I intend to take Folic Acid, Vit B6, and probiotics as soon as my supply comes in. Ordered it online at iherb.com.

My ob/byn told me that BV flare-ups are stress-induced. Well, that pretty much would guarantee a lifetime relationship with BV for me! Ugghhh!

I've taken the conventional prescriptions at least 5 times (Metro.....flagyl...et al). My ob-gyn said that sometimes BV can go from sexual partner to another, a never-ending cycle. So she had my husband (ex-husband now) take the same prescription. Anyway, I'm convinced there's a multiple sex partner connection to getting BV. At least for me I think it is. I was a virgin before getting married, and boy do I miss the freshness (yes, FRESHNESS!) scent I had. Well, I got married to someone who ended up being incredibly deceitful and a total cheater (300 women and counting....) If I'd known then what I know now! Well, ..Hence, he's my ex-husband. Thank God! Yes, it was a biblical divorce. I had to save myself from who knows what other dirty crap was coming my way if I had stayed with such a liar and player.

Sorry, everybody, I don't mean to sound like a prude...but I think it's important to cherish your body; treasure it for the gem it is. Even someone who's waited for the "right" person to come along can be easily duped. Take good care of my looks, and had MANY interested gentlemen pursue me. (Well, ok, they're still pursuing me...) So, turns out I picked the WRONG guy. I mean, we met at church for goodness sake! NOW come to find out, he's been subscribing to 9 different online dating services for the last 15 years! I'm talking a different hotel every other night, and all based on a picture he saw of them on the internet! Yes, those were his "business" trips. His first (and only) meeting with all these different women would be at a hotel! Of course, everything I'm writing right now is revelation. And you know what? Now that my ex has been found out, he admits he's proud of his behavior...he says there are way too many tramps and whores out there who are willing to be treated like sexual objects... and he's just partaking of what he's being offered! It's like the control has just been shifted over (by these women) to a bunch of worthless men!

Look bottom line, girls....please just be extra careful...your body is worth like gold...it deserves the royal treatment, beginning with how YOU value it.

Callie,
Yes, your body is your temple and you should treat it with respect. I'm glad you know that. However, there are women here on this forum that are virgins, and they have Bacterial Vaginosis. There are women out there with BV that are married, with no extra-marital sex. So I think the man has nothing to do with Bacterial Vaginosis. There IS however A CONNECTION between sex and BV. The connection of ph levels from ejaculate and pre-ejaculate. As well, some men have higher alkaline ejaculate. Also the friction issue. Many women have flare-ups from having sex - even with a condom on - and it has to do with the act of having sex, because sex involves a certain amount of friction. Using the right kind of lubricant can reduce this problem, but again, even with lubricant, you may have a flare up. Please don't blame your man. But if he is a philanderer, then you wouldn't want to be with him anyway, because he may bring home a bigger problem than BV. He may bring home a disease. BV is not a disease per say, it is an imbalance of flora in your vagina and/or your digestive tract.
