Well, I did a consumer report on Enzara and the complaint list wa a mile long, plus they're not even a listed company!
there is another product called Bodymint I was wondering if anyone has heard of? I've been dealing with this BV situation for quite awhile, and I dont have any type of infection or STDs, just sometimes a smell. It seemed to get really bad when I had my IUD in, which is why I had it removed, anyway, I'm in it with you ladies!



Have you tried boric acid? It helps but its a temp. fix...welcome to the board

Hey ladies! I'm looking into this...has anyone else heard about chloryphyll removing unpleasant bodily smells?


I believe enzara contains chloryphyll and alot of us have tried this and it hasnt worked....unless you know of a concentrated form...it doesnt hurt to try..

I was just taking it in the morning with breakfast, but now I'm taking it with breakfast and with dinner. I still have a slight odor, however, but the discharge is gone. I'm hoping I can eventually get things evened out. I definately feel like we're on the right track...especially with what Pianogirl just posted.


Hi Sassy,

I think I will start doing it 2 x a day also since we have this issue we wish to clear. The discharge is what makes it smell the most because it gets on your clothes, pants and such...it is disgusting..anyway good luck to you!

Thanx piano girl! Sassy, How often do you take the folic acid. This may help me. My main problem is discharge too.



Hi DDU,

I am taking itr 1 x per day and am still using the boric acid however I am going to start morning and night so 2 x perday.

I just wanted to add this information which I found on a website:

Oral Contraceptives
"Some research shows that women who use oral contraceptives may be at a higher risk for developing cervical dysplasia. However, it is not clear if the risk is directly attributable to the contraceptives themselves. One reason may be that oral contraceptives interfere with folic acid metabolism in the cells around the cervix, and folic acid may help prevent or improve cervical dysplasia. Another reason may be that women using this method of birth control may have increased exposure to sexually transmitted diseases, compared to those who rely on a barrier method such as a condom."

I dont know if any of you ladies where also diagnosed with cervical dyplasia / HPV..I know I was..

Sorry to hear about that Piano Girl. I don't want to say that Folic Acid is working as of yet. The Boric Acid is really the only thing that works. I do the Boric twice a week with Folic and B-6 everyday. I had sex two nights ago and I didn't smell a thing, however, he said he did but very faintly. (I THINK HE WAS SMELLING HIS OWN ASS!!) wink.gif



LOL hahahahahha! Don't you just hate when men do that?! Anyway as I suspected the smell was there, my BF and I had sex.sad.gif I will never go to a holistic doctor for this again, it is a pure waste of money..I started taking the folic acid on friday (extra strength 800 mg) however I am still using the boric because I am worried at work and when I at school at night that someone will notice....thanks to whomever reseached the boric because at least it is a temporary fix I will start doing the boric every other day and continue to limit myself to see if the folic acid works.....

Thanks again Ladies..

Hey Ladies,
Haven't been on in a while. School has consumed my life. Anyways, Can anyone let me in on wut the deal is with the folic acid?



One of the ladies on this board recommeded this...perhaps recurring BV is a vitamin deficency.....also some of these ladies including myself started to get BV when on BC pils and BC pills might actually strip away that vitamin....I guess you know how doctors recommend pregnant women take folic acid, perhaps when on BC pills we lost alot of it...or if you werent on BC pills it could just be something random that happened, in any event for some its working...I just started on friday with an extra strength Foic Acid Pill ( vitamin cool.gif 800 mg once daily....I believe some other ladies are also taking other vitamin B substances.....Anyway DDU you can try it as a bottle of Folic acid can be found anywhere and its fairly cheap.

Good Luck!

PG


PS Also the other lady whom used to post here alot "chachaheels" or something recommened that we visit holistic doctors and I did and spent almost $300..I would suggest that niether of you waste your money or your time...

The folic acid is working for me. I used to have so much discharge that I would change my panty liner twice during the day and now I don't even have to wear one. I'm not sure why it works, but I'm very happy about it!

Hey girls. My doctor said I was BV free. But I am awaiting its return. I have started taking folic acid and B 12. Is it the B6 that I am supposed to be taking?

Yea for those of you who are getting a handle on it!

Has anyone tried the Vagisil Screening Kit? I keep seeing ads for it and it’s a screening kit you can use at home to determine if you have a yeast infection, BV or something else. I have been to about 10 different stores looking for it. The last commercial I saw gave the web site www.vagisilkit.com On the site it says it’s in limited release in a few cities including Jacksonville, FL which I am near. I am going to go to Jax tomorrow and look for it. Just wondering if anyone else has tried it and how it was. If I get my hands on one, I will report back my findings.

I am so annoyed with my doctor. I don't think he gives a crap about BV and he thinks I am a weirdo for still having a problem with it.

If I get any hint that it is on its way back I am going to do the Peroxide douche. I have never done a douche before and would really appreciate if someone would tell me *exactly* how to do it.

Also, what is not good about a multivitamin?

Thanks in advance,
Sara

Well I have been off the boric for about 5 days and just inserting the vaginal probiotic 2 x a day as recommended but a faint smell has returned. I think this "holistic doctor" was a load of crap....I am so disappointed with this....any way I am going to start the folic acid since I hear it is working pretty good.

I just wanted to share this and I went to a holistic doctor and spent close to $300 on crap.....they are just like our gyns, they know s%&t..

I think they like to ask alot of questions, like what do you eat etc so they blame it on something b/c they dont know themselves...

Thanks

PS I have not been having sex..

Also she charged me $30 for a bottle of 60.

The only I could find was this...It discusses cervical dyplasia and how folic acid and vitamin B can help it. I was diagnosed withcervical dyplasia after I go off BC pills, however I do not believe that everyone here has cervical dyplasia..

I take one 800mcg of folic acid in the morning. Yes, the boric acid is nice but it doesn't work forever, at least not for me, and its kind of annoying to do all the time because it gives a really bad water-like discharge as it cleans things out. It might work for matinence, though. I think we're on to something here with the supplements. I mean, how could taking folic acid for a week clear up BV? It doesn't make sense to me...why wouldn't the doctors not know if BV was linked to a lack of a certain vitamin in your body? Anyone have any ideas as to why it helps?

Thank you so much for all the information.

Right now I am still doing what my holistic doctor recommended and dont have any smell. However I just gotr off the boric and am now just doing the vaginal probiotic suppositories in addition to some hormone pills and flax oil. I am hoping that this works, I will give myself a week if all fails i will do the folic...you girls are amazing and smart. Thank you for all your help and advice...hopefully we will soon all be back to normal and can advise other sufferers on treatment alternatives for this horrible, sad issue.

Pianogirl - I take two pills to get my folic, one thats just 400mcg I got to suppliment the B-complex vitamin I also take since it only has 400 mcg and someone was saying to take 800 mcg a day. The second pill also has a varitety of b-vitamins plus C and A or E or something.

I finished all my metrogel and I bought some kiefer at whole foods the other day to hopefully counteract the antibiotics. I'm thinking I should also use a vaginal probiotic too (?). It's been about a week on the folic but I got my period on sunday so we'll see how this all plays out in the end. I hope the folic works as well for me as it has for so many others. fingers crossed!

I'm happy for you sassy, hope it keeps up. The boric after sex sounds like a good idea, i've been trying to think of a good way to maintain once i get rid of this...

The smell is almost gone now...barely there. I haven't had any discharge all day so apparently the folic acid has started to kick in after only using it for one week. I'm so excited! I hope things stay this way. Wouldn't it be really stupid if all this BV nonsense was caused by something as fixable as a deficiency of folic acid in our bodies? I know some of you have tried it without any help but it obviously has something to do with this because it's helped several girls on here. I don't really understand it myself. I'm still going to use the boric acid after sex for a little while to hopefully keep things okay. I'm being hopeful, though.
