I looked online today for information about the chemistry and nutrient composition of sperm. I didn't find much. I did read that whatever the nutrients that are in it are absorbed from our bodies so I'm putting man on vitamin regimen as well. Can't hurt nothing. I know some of use..sperm isn't a factor...I think it has somewhat of a role for me. I'm really curious what research has been done regarding bv..so I can quit wearing myself out. I'm gonna start reading some medical journals I guess... I hope I remember my medical terminology since reading doctor slang might as well be in chinese.


It isn't the sperm that one worries about regarding vaginal pH effects; it is the semen. Normal semen pH is 7.2-8.0. Prostate-related secretion is acidic, while seminal vesicle fluid is alkaline. Acidic ejaculate (pH<7.2) may be associated with blockage of seminal vesicles. Infection (in the male) is usually associated with alkaline ejaculate (pH >8.0). At any rate, the normal pH range of semen is way higher than what the vagina should be (4.5 is the accepted norm). I suggest condoms or, if not using condoms, using aci-jel or boric acid after intercourse to get the pH back down to the acidic level.

Hi jewels,'
is this the oral dosage or for using it vaginally?


she definitely meant orally. vaginally you would only do it two or three times total. and you would never do it more than once in a day.

I don't know for sure what she meant but I'm using it orally. I'm pretty sure she meant orally as well.

Not, it's right. 1 Pill twice a day, for 7 days.

Hopefully this will work for you....

Thanks, Jewels. I hope this works for me too. I'm trying to believe that it will. But I'm not going to get my hopes up too high.

ilovehim, the burning is on the inside. And when I get aroused and the juices start flowing the burning gets worse on the inside and it spreads to the outside. I swear the Clindesse some how made it worse. It made the discharge much better but the burning is only worse.

OK so I am a little obsessive compulsive but this thought crossed my mind on the body ph theory thing....I wonder what our man's sperm ph is...and what it should really measure..maybe they aren't healthy? I'm gonna look later and find out what the healthy ph should be, and well, guess I'll be doing some experiments....

I haven't noticed yogurt making me smell worse..it does make me feel sick to my stomach..a little... I read online today that the cilaymycin that I was first prescribed kills all the bacteria good and bad, but it didn't mention that the metronidazole gel did that as well. I also went to a doctor lounge looking for info, and this dumbass said bv doesn't reoccur. whatever.
If I repeat shit that you all already know, its only because I haven't read all 79 damn pages of this so forgive me.
I read that articficial sweetners are worse on your body than sugar..I chew a lot of sugarless gum...trying to quit smoking.
I think we all should be taking vitamin c...when your body is in physical and emotional stress..it needs twice as much...and if you smoke 2..need even more. Since it fights our infections constantly....we probably aren't getting enough. there is follic acid in my regular vitamin should I get some just of folic?
I think I know what caused my bv...I used spermicide only(docs think its a n inducer for bv)..as birth control for several months..then quit using it because it started burning my shit even before I had infection..got prego month later. I'm a dumbass..do they make condoms without spermicide? I know I will never use it in any sort again. My bf has a vesectomy but his sperm sends me on bv train...
What is TTO mouthwash? Where can you get it? does that help stop reoccurance from oral? (I don't know if that does for me or not...he always gives me that
Do you all suffer from UTI's...I had one and didn't know it..no symtoms...but LOTS of bacteria. Test came back that it's gone though.

Hey morphia is the burning on the inside or outside? If it's by your clit it can be a UTI so you should get tests for that too.

Did the yogurt make more smelly discharge for you guys?

Oh and who uses tampons?

diets, body chemistry, health history, and any medications that you have taken in the past..including drug use. Also, if anyone cares to share their sexual habits as far as how often you have intercourse, and is it rough sex or not. my body temperature is usually below normal because I'm always cold. Do any of you experience that?


Yupp girl same here. I'm always cold! And i noticed my hands are usually cold whether its hot or not, it don't matter.

Sex 2 or 3 times, every other day. We shower after sex, and sometimes end up doing it there too. The water sometimes goes inside my cooch and i think that can cause BV too. =( The soap irritates me, usually body washes do this. Caress is what i've been using but down there I use Summer's Eve fem. wash. Ocassionally, i scrub myself with the Caress or body washes, But I don't recommend doing this.


My BV started when I first became pregnant with my son (first preg.). During the time I became preg. i remember sitting under the running water in the bathtub with my legs open to "CLEAN OUT" the cum. If I only knew then what I know now, I would've never done that! When I sarted noticing that the odor was offensive, I ignorantly bought a Summer's EVE tropically flavored douche thinking it was gonna cure the odor. Then EVENTUALLY got up the nerve to mention the odor to my gyn. and got prescribed the FLAGYL, and that's when it all started for me.

Right now I've been alright with the smell it isn't as bad as it used to be. =\ I tried lots of things includuing: Yogurt inserted inside, taking acidophillus probiotics, I don't eat bread or anything containing yeast. I cut back on my sugar intake, but still consume some sugar.

I stopped applying anything vaginally except for metro gel after sex. To keep the smell at bay. But ovbiously it hasn't helped much. I'm taking 1 Folic Acid suppliment a day.

Oh i forgot to mention that I smoke marijuana (almost everyday) and cigarettes.

Alright. So I went to pick up my Flagyl today and as I was being checked out I looked at the label and to my horror it said to take ONE pill twice a day for 7 days. Now, I say "to my horror" because isn't it supposed to be TWO pills twice a day? The milligram is 500. Is the dosage wrong??? Because if its too low then it will do SQUAT. I just took my first one at 3:15-3:20. How many hours apart should I take them?

Hey guys...I have been gone for a couple of months due to lack of internet access. Nothing new to report...I'm still using the boric a couple times a week. It seems a lot of you have had success with the flagyl vaginally so I'm going to give that a try. I don't really want to use the estoroil yet, but I might sometime. My honeymoon/wedding is in September, and I would really like to get this under control. I'm really worried about getting on the plane with boric or flagyl that isn't technically prescribed to me (i.e. ordered online.)

I'm 100% sure that won't help since my symptoms reappeared before my period. I don't think my period is the cause. I think the cause is that I've had it for so long that its grown to be a Goliath of an infection. But I'll try it anyway.

Has anyone here tried povidone-iodine yet?

Well, girls. The results are in. I have bv. The Clindesse did Jack shit. And so did the primadophilus reuteri, and so did the Fem-dophilus, and so did cutting out almost every carb known to man (I pretty much eat nothing but meat and vegetables), and so did the folic acid, b vitamins and whole vitamin supplement, as well as quitting smoking. I stopped using soap on my actual vagina and only on the outside and made damn sure I kept my legs closed enough to keep anything from getting in there. I slept with no underwear on and used pads during my period. I even bought brand new underwear to wear during the day. I don't take baths and I don't use antibacterial soap. And it seems that this shit only got worse. Still no smell. Hardly any discharge...But the burning....God...the burning. I did everything right and it did nothing. So, they gave me the option of Flagyl or Metrogel. I chose the Flagyl. And I don't care how sick it makes me or how bad it tastes. I'm going to stick it out because its supposed to be the most effective. According to all of you here, it seems that if I can't kick it the first time, then I likely never will. So I guess I'm joining the club. I'll be looking forward to a wonderful life of sticking foreign objects up my vag to get relief, only to realize it made it worse. And why in God's name does it burn? Its not supposed to hurt....

I was wondering what any of us have in common as far as our diets, body chemistry, health history, and any medications that you have taken in the past..including drug use. Also, if anyone cares to share their sexual habits as far as how often you have intercourse, and is it rough sex or not. I'm going today to buy some ph test strips to monitor my urine ph...I know it is higher than most healthy people the past three times I have had it done. I seems like that my body temperature is usually below normal because I'm always cold. Do any of you experience that? I'm gonna go buy a nutriction book today, I'm hoping that if I can balance my body ph through diet, that it might help my vagina have an easier time keeping itself balanced. Since my urine ph is high, which means it has a lot of amonia in it..the body uses it as a buffer so the urine isn't as acidic and doesn't burn...might be making my kitty more basic too. Maybe we should rinse with water after peeing (just the outside area)? This is my new theory, I'm gonna keep a journal for my doctor of my diet, body temperature, and urine ph. (hoping he will give a shit). I quit taking baths too , it hasn't helped the bv from reoccurring.

I was pregnant with my son, and never diagnosed with bv, I thought the funk was from the pregnancy, and was too embarrassed to mention it. I will say this that in the last trimester, i had too much aminoitic fluid, which can make uterus think its ready to deliver when the baby isnt ready. Luckily, he made it through fine. Makes me wonder how many premature births this bv really causes, since I was never diagnosed, and a lot of women have it without the smell and discharge....
I am having a hard time with this bv, started having aniexty attacks, I had insominia for a year..i can kinda sleep now..a lot of nightmares though.then the panic attacks harvested. I had to go to doctor for that...just last month..he doesn't know about my stinky snatch. (just a new gp doc) I know my hormones are way off. Can they test that? Does anyone think if I go on the pill that maybe it could help balance them out?
I'm gonna go take my prozac and shut up for now.
