I know Neverending had success with Estroil, Lori with Fem-D and Flagyl, someone else with TTO suppositories. What was your fix? Do you know what helped finally, something you were trying?


Well, if one could call it a "fix" lol I guess it would have to be the last thing I used. Clindamycin cream used vaginally and taking the Fem-D and Swanson FemFlora (less expensive equivalent of FemD). I was taking like 3 or 4 at a time instead of the recommended 2.

Those acidophilus things don't seem to be working on my yeast though. Which is confusing, I thought it would work on that too. I really thought that what i was smelling and seeing was BV cuz it had all the classic signs and symptoms of bv beast; however it was not! The medicine the doc prescribed -Gynazole 1- for one dose lasting 7 days would probably knock that out, but its $50 with my insurance huh.gif Geez. I'm thinkin about just breaking down and getting it; most likely I could have been done with this mess 2 wks ago.

Lesson to be learned ladies, do not try to self diagnose. You may be wrong like I was. Try the health department as an alternative if you can't afford to go to your regular gyn or primary care doc.

Welcome to the board Anais! I can't use TTO for that exact reason. It burns me every single time-even diluted. I may just be allergic to it.

Good luck finding a solution for your BV beast! I definitely know how frustrating it is. I had recurrent BV for about the last 5 yrs or so and was in the doctors office more times than I can count. The last three times I've gone to the doc, it's been yeast every single time. Im such a lucky gal aren't I? **bitter sarcasm!!** blink.gif

LADIES: I KNOW THIS is TMI BUT I LET MY HUSBAND CUM IN LAST NIGHT. I thought this crap would come back but it didn't. I also have to say, I had no problem getting wet. I've been doing a lot of stress reduction and it seem to have worked. So, with that being said,I AM BACK TO NORMAL AGAIN. It's been ( I think) a year and something now. Ask me if i'm happy.Now all I have to do is get over this horrible anxiety. That is the hard part. I think it will take me years to get back to my old self but it is possible. I think once I move, lose weight,finish school things will be good again.



hi neverending

Oh, don't feel dumb! You've been misinformed, and that is not your fault.

There's 2 ways to get the TTO. First, you can make them yourself. I purchased a bottle from Walmart. It's in the vitamin section normally close to the bottom shelf. Most health food stores carry the 00 Capsules that you can buy real cheap. I used a baby dropper and filled them up, and put in at night before I went to bed. You might want to start off with only filling the capsule half way, just to see how your body reacts. And, literally, lay down, once you've put it in. The best discription I can explain is it almost feels like someone blowing a Vicks menthal couph drop up you. But for me, it did not hurt. If you are raw in anyway, it might burn a little.

The next day (s), you will smell the TTO when you go to the bathroom. That's really the only time you smell it. I suggest using it for 2 days, then wait. It takes awhile to fully come out, so, I only used it for a couple of days, then stopped. Then I only used 1 capsule, the day after sex. Again, didn't want to use it if I was raw in any way shape or form. I wouldn't have sex for about a week, when on the TTO. I wanted to give it time to work.


Jewelscando-

Do you use the TTO on a regular basis now for maintainance, or only after sex?

hi, i'm a longtime lurker of this thread..

literally tried EVERYTHING, had health insurance way back when, they put me on meds 2x, didn't work, then went to planned parenthood, they put me on meds 2-3x, bv came back, tried boric acid/garlic, etc suppositories for a week(s), and that didn't work, tried meds/creams purchased online, didn't work!

is it really abnormal to try boric acid suppositories and NOT have 'em clear bv up? i thought there was a study somewhere that it was 98 percent effective. how the *#(Y%(#* am i in the 2 percent, lucky me!! the moral of my whole fiasco with bv is not to ever have sex again (hardy har, jk), but really, i do not trust docs after this. some of the bv meds they prescribed i took years ago for acne. i believe i've developed a tolerance to them which is pretty frightening to me.

anyways, my last resort is trying tto suppositories+acidophilus (sp) pills. how many days should i use these? 2 weeks? i'm getting my period in another ten days i think..that's going to screw things up right dry.gif

anyways, i looooove tto, the way it smells and everything. i had a little bit in a plastic cup and it ate right through the glue holding it together, so that stuff is potent!

For YEAST.

Boric acid is known to be very effective for YEAST, not BV. Some ladies have tried boric acid in here, and have found that it controls their symptoms, so they keep using it. But you have to keep using it or the symptoms come back, and no one has claimed that boric acid permanently cured their BV.

There are people who KNOW they are suffering from BV _AND_ yeast AND who are claiming that boric acid was the solution for them. For some reason, they fail to make it clear that they had a concurrent YEAST problem (which boric acid is a known cure for).

Anyway, Anais, don't feel bad that you are one of the rare 2%, because you are not. You were misinformed, probably because you lurked here, and some people have obviously misspoke.

The second way, is you can have your doctor give you a prescription for it, and the pharmacist will fill them for you.

Hope this helps! Mine is still gone!! rolleyes.gif

As for the boric acid.. it's not a cure. It will only take the smell away for not very long. You have to use it all the time.. And if you are alergice to any type of sulfer type products, don't use it. If you go to any search engine, and type in Boric Acid for B.V., you might get more information, or can someone else on her help her with this one?? I'm alergic to the stuff, so I don't know a whole lot about it.

Hi all. I am new here and I am so glad I found this site. Can someone please tell me about the boric acid and tea tree oil? Where do you buy the boric acid and the empty capsules? Is there a certain brand to buy? I keep seeing something about 00 capsules. Does it just dissolve in your vagina? Does it burn your partner? How soon after starting the boric acid could you tell a difference? Can you use it during your period? How often do you use the boric acid capsules? Now for the tea tree oil. Do you just put it on a tampon and insert? How long should you leave it in? How often do you insert the tea tree tampon. Please respond as soon as you get this. I am so excited to try these things because I so tired of living with this disgusting bv. Thank you to all who respond.

So I"ve had BV since the birth of my Son 9 months ago. Cream and Flagl only got rid of it for a few weeks and then it was back.. I went to the DR. last week because I could swear the BV was back, I had itching and discharge...but Dr. said the culture showed NO BV and I have to call back on Monday to get the results they sent away for...

Has this happened to anyone else? laugh.gif

Hmmm, I had a miscarriage then I started having problems. People told me to eat more pineapples, and that seems to be helping.

Just TTO Suppossitories. That's all I used. And only used it after sex. But, trust me when I say this to you, IT PROBABLY WON'T WORK FOR YOU!!! I hate to be negative girl, but, it's been proven, OVER AND OVER AND OVER and again on this board, that what works for me, may not work for you and vice versa. Everybody's bodies are so different, in so many ways. What brought it on for me, is not what brought it on for you, or who knows who else. The best and ONLY advice I have, is to completely go through all your options. Start with your Doctor. If they don't help, go to another one. Then read Lori's Blog completely!!! You will not find better, more thorough information anymore!! Then, try what works for you.. but what ever you try, make sure you check it out completly first, AND GIVE IT A CHANCE!! If you spend hours sticking things up you, or putting down your throat, you will never know what it is that works for you.

I think the best advice given so far is what Lori has suggested. And I only say this, because of the massive research she has done NOT because it worked for her. Because several of the girls have tried what she suggested and it didn't work for them, hence what works for 1 may not work for another.

I also think, my body might have just been going through something called STRESS!!!! And, I have spent countless hours trying to controll my stress. Stress brought on lower back problems for me and massive headaches. Since I am getting my stress levels under control, my back issues are going away along with the headaches. So... that's also one reason why I've stayed away from this board.. to be honest. Not that it's stressfull, but constantly talking about Itty Bitty Fish Heads coming out the kitty all the time, was STRESSFULL!!! hahahah...

Where does one find tea tree suppositories and how often should it be used if you have an infection already?
