I've heard of this and it's been discussed on here. NOT a good idea for BV. It's a simple water douche, which we now know is not good for most of us with BV.
OMG. ohmy.gif What a TEASE. I want, I want, I WANT. Anyone know someone in the countries it's being distributed? I wasn't able to find any online seller sad.gif
Were you able to find out anything???
and yes, WAY too quiet in here....


I emailed Ellen AB to ask where I could buy their products online. I'll post the response as soon as I get it. I did some searching from the Ellen AB website and I did find an online distributor. I translated the website using Google Translator (click here)

Rephresh Pro-B is pretty expensive at my CVS/Walgreens. It costs about $32 including tax, that's a lot of money when you think about it. That would mean $384 on RePhresh Pro-B every year! Fem-D is a lot more budget friendly in my area. It usually costs about $20 at the Vitamin Shoppe since it's always on sale and you would be earning 20 health points with each Fem-D purchase, which means by the end of the year if you buy Fem-D every month you would earn 240 health points which is almost 250 health points which means $10 store credit (click here). So your saving a good amount of money and there's store credit biggrin.gif . Free store credit with every purchase ... not bad. However, I don't know how the Vitamin Shoppe ships their refrigerated products because I've never ordered Fem-D from their store online but it is refrigerated when its in the store. I'm sure they would ship it refrigerated or it would perish and that would make customers very angry.

How is your Femdophilus packaged when it's shipped to your house?

SO! I've been pretty good for the last year or so since I started on the Fem-D and kept up with my cranberry pills with occasional boric acid douche about once a month. Smell is all but gone, discharge comes and goes (last few weeks has been a bit yellow/green which is concerning).

Saw a commercial for Rephresh Pro-B (link), which described itself exactly the same as Fem-D basically. It will cost more ($25-30 a bottle for 30 pills) but at least more women will be helped if this stuff is on the shelves available. Was wondering what ya'll thought or if you'd seen/tried it?

I don't know but I'm ordering from Iherb right now! As I mentioned I'm doing well with my BV but I'm always looking to add to my arsenal wink.gif

A few years ago, there were a couple of users that mentioned taking chlorophyll to control their vaginal odor. I've been reading about chlorophyll and how it's used as in internal deodorizer, and I read reviews about certain chlorophyll supplements/products and how buyers said it got rid of their bad breath, underarm odor, body odor and so on. So, the question(s) I'm going to ask applies to anyone that has personally used chlorophyll to help control their vaginal odor or get rid of it:

1. Did it work?
2. Did it help?

I'm curious to see if it really works. I'm going to order a bottle of it from GNC. Hopefully it curbs my morning breath ... tongue.gif

Hi Ladies,
I'm just checking back in to let you ladies know that I'm still BV free after a year! : ) I've posted my treatment method before (a basic antibiotic), but I don't know if it was helpful to anyone. : / Either way, I wanted to update my status from the antibiotic and I'm doing well. I've included my old post, just in case anyone wanted to read it. Much success to you all! FRESHnFREE : )

***********************************************************************
Old Post Below Dec '08


Hi, I've lurked here for about a year and I've tried most of the suggestions on this site and many have brought relief, but I thank God for truly helping me find a cure and I'd like to share it with you ladies.

The cure: It's an oral dose of "Z" pack antibiotic. Zithromax/Azithromycin (*it treats bacterial infections) I don't think the antibiotic's effect on bacterial vaginosis is shared much in the medical community or with patients. I think it may come in a generic form also.

Azithromycin is used to treat certain bacterial infections, most often those causing middle ear infections, tonsillitis, throat infections, laryngitis, bronchitis, pneumonia and sinusitis. It is also effective against certain sexually transmitted infectious diseases, such as non-gonococcal urethritis and cervicitis. (wiki) It's funny that a doctor has never prescribed this for any of us.

I found this cure by accident. I used it for a throat infection and it also cleared up my bv. Then I did some research and discovered that it was the reason my bv cleared up. I've tried EVERYthing, trust me, including FemD, peroxide (great for a quick fix), yogurt, acidophilis, boric acid, metrogel, flagyl, etc... So I understand what you ladies are going through.

Actually, I've had BV for years, but I've always been able to cure it with a doctor's prescription of Metrogel. Unfortunately, I think I contracted a very resistant strain from a new partner. I should also add that I'm allergic to latex and that often brings on a bv infection for me.

Anyway, bottom line, get a prescription for a 5 day "Z" pack. I used it for 5 days and then followed it with Metrogel for another 3-4 days to make sure it was gone, but you may be fine with just the antibiotic. It's been over 2 months and I'm completely BV free, including no smell. Please get the prescription for Azithromycin.

Many doctors may try to tell you that this won't cure it, but believe me, IT WORKS! I vowed to finally post once I felt confident with a cure/remedy and now I finally do. I've been bv free since mid October ladies and it's December.

Hi Ladies,

Update: Its over 3 months and BV still gone so I can only assume the homeopathic bv treatment works along with apple cider vinegar baths. Ive had sex many times and still no smell.

I like many of BV sufferers have HPV. I have no symptoms other than the bv. I believe some people dont know they have it because sometimes when I get tested it comes back neg but I know I have it. I know my bv and hpv are related, and that once I fix the hpv the bv will probably leave. I am trying a product called beta mannan said to cure hpv. Just a suggestion. I just started it so im just letting others know about it.

Oh, I didnt order the waterworks cool.gif


I'm interested in the herbal aspects of this remedy. Be careful to be douching every other day .... douching just spells out disaster. The thought of you douching for two weeks is very concerning. Maybe you could try herbal suppositories instead. There are products that are herbal suppositories that have worked for many women. You could even compound herbs into a gelatin capsule.
Have you tried boric acid suppositories?

I blogged about this product a while ago. If it's only using tap water, then it's base, so I think that would still change the vaginal pH because water is neutral (base) and the vaginal canal should be acidic. It's pretty interesting since a gynecologist, Dr. Lisa Masterson (OB/GYN) is advocating waterworks. But I don't think it would do anything for an active infection since it wouldn't be treating the infection. I'm really interested to see if it works long term for you. It's safe to say that waterworks probably isn't a scam. I still don't like the sounds of it though. It's still rinsing out the vaginal flora ... hmmm mellow.gif
I pray for everyone suffering from bacterial vaginosis at church every Saturday, so they will find the light at the end of the tunnel and not give up or give in to bacterial vaginosis. I wish every night that all the women on this forum suffering from bv will find relief. And I'm so happy to hear your not giving up either. biggrin.gif
Thanks for prayers...

From their site:

What is vaginal pH balance and why is it important?
pH is a measure of how acidic or alkaline a substance is. A normal vaginal pH of 3.8 to 4.2 (acidic) is important for maintaining good vaginal health. At this optimum pH level, your vagina contains a specific balance of necessary bacteria and some yeast cells. When the pH balance is upset, the level of good bacteria gets too low and the level of bad bacteria gets too high. This can result in vaginal odor and infections. Because WaterWorks uses only tap water, it won’t disturb your natural pH balance.
Why is WaterWorks better, safer and more effective than other treatments of vaginal odor?
WaterWorks is all natural and uses only tap water. The combination of patented stainless steel nozzle and tap water actually reduces or eliminates vaginal odor instead of covering it up with harsh perfumes or chemicals. WaterWorks has been proven safe and effective in several clinical studies.

I don't know if the is a scam or not, but the ladies on Doctors say that this really works, but I will let you know...in a couple of weeks.

I found something pretty interesting: probiotic tampons. Their originally from Sweden, but their now being launched in China. Contrary to the yogurt on a tampon method, it contains healthy strains of bacteria that are naturally found in the vaginal flora whereas normal acidophilus doesn't colonize the vaginal tract.

I'm almost afraid to tell this out of fear that It will stop working. Folic Acid and Femdophilis = bye bye nasty smelly coochie. Read my past posts to get my history if ur interested but long story short is I found a webite where all the women were raving about this combination to rid our bodies of the BV monster. five days ago I pushed out a glob like I was in childbirth, today I'm smell free, muscous free, free! I'm ready to cry. 800 -1200 mg of Folic Acid + 2 FemD in the morning and 800 mg +1 FemD at night. check out the site www.earthclinic.com. I'll say no more.


I'm assuming you mean mcg rather than mg because your not supposed to exceed 1,000 mcg of folic acid per day.

There are links between smoking and bacterial vaginosis. If you smoke, your at greater risk of developing bacterial vaginosis and at greater risk of reoccurring infections. I left two links below for quick viewing.

1. http://www.biomedcentral.com/1472-6874/7/20
2. http://ijsa.rsmjournals.com/cgi/content/abstract/11/9/603

My uncle is a chronic smoker and he tried quitting so many times. He started in college, and I kind of believe he doesn't have the will power to quit. He's addicted to smoking, and it doesn't help that he suffers from anxiety. If you quit smoking, it's good to have some kind of support team to guide you along the way.
