So i'm new here, so hello everybody. Ive had BV for like 2 years now, and i'm partly glad i'm not the only one with this problem and saddend that others have to go thru this. But anyway, ive tried probly everything to make this go away. I will NOT go to the gyno anymore because the three times i went were absolute HELL. I have never experienced so much pain. to get a pap with no lube is not right. i couldn't even scream it hurt so bad. anyway, so the doc gave me something i think it was metro-something and it made me itch so bad and then did nothing to help. So i searched and searched for at home ways to cure this and the only thing that helps me a little is douching with hydrogen peroxide. i know it's probably the worst thing possible, but it works, that and inserting yogurt. but the problem is that they only work for a day, and i doubt it's healthy to do this everyday. So i bought femdopholus and it hasn't done anything on its own, so my question is how do i take it and would it help to also take boric acid, and how do you take it? do you insert it you know where or swallow it, and would it work like in douche form??
help!
Thanks!!


Hey,
Give the femdophilious(sp?) time. With anything it takes time to see whether or not it's going to work. Oh, BORIC ACID SHOULD NEVER BE SWALLOWED! NEVER EVER PERIOD! It should go up the Vajayjay. Also, douching should not be done everyday. You may be pushing bacteria where it does not belong which may lead to PID. You know, I got so use to pap smears that no lube does not bother me but then again I have a high tolerance for pain. Next time let them know before starting that you would like lube to be used. Don't be afraid to speak up! Hope this helps! Oh, welcome to the board! Glad your here. This is the best board on the net and it's filled with lots of valuable info!

Neverending,
Congrats on your success!!!
How did you figure out that you have a hormonal problem? Is it something you suspected or did the doctor run tests? Do you take hormones? Thanks for the input.
I feel like something is just not right but when I have gone for tests they cannot find anything wrong. This might be TMI but, I was standing in my bedroom (naked) deciding what to wear, had just finished my period 5 days previously. Then gush all of a sudden, I am bleeding. It was all over the floor, my husband thought that somehow I had cut myself! This kinda thing happen to anyone else?? ohmy.gif



Hey hun,

Thanks a lot! I don't remember when I figured out that this was hormonal but it's documented here (just to lazy to go back and look at it) but yeap your hormones control a lot. I didn't realize that. If I could go back again, I would have done my research before making my decision that day. I don't take anything now but b-12 and diet pills Alli. That's it! As far as your problem with bleeding, no I've never had that happen. I don't know what may have caused that. Maybe Inflammation?! Anyway, hope all is well hun and no, nothing is TMI for me. I'm grown! I don't think this is something to be ashamed of, I don't think this is TMI, and I don't think this is something gross or disgusting. This is our bodies! wink.gif

I'm taking 2 fem-d in the morning(like lori suggested) with one flagyl, and then another flagyl at night.

Don't take the fem-d with flagyl at the same time.

The fem-d insert says that you should take them a couple hours apart - because the antibiotic may kill some of the good bacteria in the fem-d.

Busties,

I got the fem-D last week, Tuesday, and I took it for two days...the BV kinda disappeared but then at night I would get a small discharge, but that's it (taking into account that the only symptom I have of BV is a discharge- no smell, no pain, nothing). THen I stopped taking it because I decided I wanted to start taking it when I start the Flagyl, and today is my first day! busties, wish me some luck! I'm taking 2 fem-d in the morning(like lori suggested) with one flagyl, and then another flagyl at night.

I'm not new lol I've been a member since +2 years ago? But I forgot the password for my other account and I could never get it back :-(
I'm glad you found it was an hormonal imbalance! Maybe that's what I have too? I'm starting to think that mine MIGHT be related to stress....has anyone ever thought about this? I started getting BV symptoms last july, when I got SUPER stressed out cause I didn't get paid for 3 months straight, and since then I've been stressed out non-stop.

Where exactly can I buy Boric Acid? I heard it can be found at a drugstore. A drugstore like Walgreens or CVS maybe?

Yes, they should have them! They might be behind the counter though so you will have to ask the pharmacist. You should be able to get (or order if they don't have them) the empty 0 or 00 capsules there too. The Boric Acid will be in a container anywhere from 50-500g. The smallest one should be fine to fill a LOT of caps!

Thanks everyone on Bust Lounge!!! Fem-D changed my life! BV be gone! Try from Iherb (cheapest) with code LAZ615 & save another $5! :D

Sooo Sad: The boric acid is the only thing that has ever worked for me. I use it for maintenance. The powder is the correct form. To fill the capsule up, I pour some powder on a paper towel and sort of scoop it up into the capsule. I usually fill them about 3/4 full. Then I put the lid on the capsule and wipe off any excess powder on the outside of it. I make a bunch at a time and store them in a little plastic container in my bathroom.


thanks so much for all your help. a few more questions, if you don't mind. wink.gif how many times a week are you doing it and how long have you been doing it? do you know of any bad side effects of using it for a long period of time? are you also taking fem d too? bv free yet? sorry to be sooo nosy but i don't know how to deal with this thing and i need some ideas. seems like quietmadness got rid of her bv with this and in combination with tto. i might do that.

i really appreciate you sassy hon!!!!!!!!!

So right now I'm on flagystatin, which is nystatin & metronidazole in cream form. Has anyone tried this and/or had success with it????

It's messy & I'm pissed off cuz I asked my doctor if there was a vaginal ovule form and he said "no.".... so I come to work today (I work at a pharmacy distributor) and find that there is ovules. mad.gif

I get to call next week for my latest test results (I don't have gonorrhea? no DUH! I told you that 5475 times!) and will be asking for the ovules instead of this cream crap.

I'm doing well so far, no itching/burning/smell but I'm not sure about the discharge since I'm finishing off my period, plus the flagystatin looks awful so who knows!

My bf is getting a bit annoyed (it's been over a month with no sex sad.gif ) and I'd really like to celebrate my normal vagina by jumping him & not worrying about it afterwards. I still have to try the VIT C thing & boric acid as I've said, so that will be next if the doctors give up before they even really start again.

Good luck to all (and me!) cool.gif

My vaginoses is reaccuring since I gave birth in June of 2007 and I am pissed off cause it wont go away. So I came to chicago to find a better dr, one better than the doc's from back home in Oklahoma
Fagyl is not working on me right now. Im freakin pissed
I heard ya need to do a metrogel & flaygl?

then I heard of a drug called Tindamax [oral] tinidazole it is said to cure the problem in one dose
I see my doc on tuesday.
http://www.vaginosis.com/#9



I used Tindamax several years ago and it didn't do anything. It helped even less than the Flagyl. A couple of other girls tried it back then and I don't think it worked for anyone.

Well it took me a day on Flagyl to make all the symptoms disappear. I only had the yellowish discharge and the weird smell (not nasty smell, but it was weird). Just DON'T drink alcohol when you are with them, I got the worst cramps EVER.
I have to go to the gyno to pick up my second dose of flagyl, and I just got a bottle of Fem-D from whole food! busties, cross your fingers for me!! should i start taking them today or wait till I get the pills?

You should start taking the Fem-D right away, don't wait to pick up the flagyl. Take at least 2/day.

My fingers are crossed for you. Good luck!

Wow, so many new ladies here! I like to see newcomers but it sucks at the same time because I realize this is becoming such a widespread problem. I finally figured out my problem was horomonal imbalance. Anyway, work on the body as a whole. This should help you all. Last year I had maybe 3 episodes, this year i've only had one. So, my life is finally back on track. I will say, get rid of anything or anyone that causes stress in your life. If you have people in your life that can't be understanding, loving, or caring... GET RID OF THEM. You can't afford the stress. Tell them to take their low self esteem ass somewhere else cause you don't need them. Try to keep the ph of the body alkaline. Get adequate sleep and remember NO STRESS! Stress lowers the immune system. Anyway, i have homework i need to do so you ladies have a wonderful night.
peace!
