i'd rather use natural ways. that's why i'm using the Yeast Arrest. and there are a few people on this board (i don't remember who) who were successful with that.


I used boric acid with much success==for treating concurrent BV/resistant-yeast infections. It is the major ingredient in Yeast Arrest vaginal capsules, right? The only cavaet--after using boric acid via the dose-and-timing schedule as you have described, I got really dry in there. My gyn, a big believer in boric acid (God rest his soul--he committed suicide last summer!), suggested applying a dab of estrogen cream vaginally (I use Estrace) after using boric acid (once its residue quits dripping out) to help the lining get re-moistened.

Awaiting my Fem Dophilus order--before they were available here in the U.S., I had to get these strains of lactobacilli from friends in Austria!

Blessings,
Maggie C.

i didn't say she was right for what she said but she wanted to say it and she is allowed to. that's her opinion. she should have added "for me" at the end of each of those sentences but who am i or anyone else to tell her what to say? i didn't want to get personal with this but you act like you're in charge of everyone and if they say something that you don't like or you don't agree with then they shouldn't say it.

I'm glad you agree that what Jewels said is not right. She's talked about vaginal-flagyl for a while, and while I expressed my reservations with that, I didn't tell her to stop saying it.

But like I said, what she said lately (about it being the only thing that will work) is very irresponsible. And she did need to stop saying that.

And I stand by that.

Also, I want to add that Jewels also gave WRONG information. She cited info. about vaginal tablets that are not available in the U.S., and misinterpreted that to mean that using oral flagyl tablets vaginally is safe.

If she is giving wrong medical information, I think it's okay to correct her. Don't you?

I think when you tell people to stay away from something, you should back up your claims with some research - not just "I read this on the internet somewhere ..." Where are the studies that say it causes nerve damage? I'm not even doubting you, I think it's worth knowing about. But I think you should substantiate your claims before warning people to completely stay away, don't you?

And that is an objective criticism, not based on the fact that you've recently called me a "bitch," a "cunt," and a "piece of shit."
Untrue. I've only been around a month, and there's been plenty of shit-slinging before I ever made a peep. Let's not forget Jewels beating up on a couple of newbies recently. And the latest shit-flinging had nothing to do with me - arj75 had problems with Jewels - "stop putting crap in your twat!" as she eloquently put it. (And I think it's about time someone said it.)

I really appreciate all the support and the ability to share our problems in this thread - but there's also a lot of bad ideas that were given in here, too - some of them are potentially harmful, some of them made thing worse, some people ended up with people's vaginas "torn up!"

I really do appreciate this thread. But that doesn't change the fact that it's also a long, sad record of people shoving all manners of things in your bajingo hoping for magic, and being disappointed. I'm not putting anyone down - I've had my "Bad Product Pussy Explosion," too (which I already talked about). And it is sad that we have become so desperate that we've become willing to try anything, possibly putting our health in danger.

But it really does get a little insane around here.


you keep bringing up things that happened in the past and wasting more time on arguments. why would you want to talk about arguments that already happened. like i said, if you have a problem with something someone said, you should talk to them privately. not on here. stop wasting time going back and finding things that people said that you think they shouldn't have. why don't you spend your time doing things that help out, like research on BV WHICH IS WHY WE'RE HERE.

[EDITED] USELESS CONVERSATION WITH MORPHIA DELETED.

To everyone,

I really appreciate all the support and the ability to share our problems in this thread - but there's also a lot of bad ideas that were given in here, too - some of them are potentially harmful, some of them made thing worse, some people ended up with people's vaginas "torn up!"

I really do appreciate this thread. But that doesn't change the fact that it's also a long, sad record of people shoving all manners of things in their bajingo hoping for magic, and being disappointed. I'm not putting anyone down - I've had my "Bad Product Pussy Explosion," too (which I already talked about). And it is sad that we have become so desperate that we've become willing to try anything, possibly putting our health in danger.

But it really does get a little insane around here. I don't think the recent hysteria and the irresponsible recommendations are helpful. Basically, I've got a problem with all the bad advice - potentially unsafe recommendations, and unsubstantiated claims.

I've gotten a few PM's recently, from members who do NOT post in this thread, but have questions about BV. I think we should all be mindful that there are a lot of women who read this thread, and may get the wrong idea about the suggestions in here.

That is odd! I've noticed that yeast creams ease the burning too. Which is why I thought I was battling recurrent yeast infections for over a year. I wonder why this is? But I'm too afraid to use yeast creams for just anything since it can actually be dangerous. There are studies that are showing that its the easy access us women have to yeast treatments that is giving rise to all of these resistant strains. I try to stay away from yeast meds unless I know for sure that I have yeast infection.


My doctor told me that maybe I have bv and a small yeast inf. together which is why the monistat helps. I have read that too about it not being good to use them all the time so I try not to unless I just can't take it anymore.

yes i am only getting treated for the UTI. but because i choose not to take the antibiotics for the BV. not because they make me sick, because they don't work for me. it goes away for a little bit and then returns a lot worse. if i keep taking them over and over and over again i don't think that's very good for my body. i'd rather use natural ways. that's why i'm using the Yeast Arrest. and there are a few people on this board (i don't remember who) who were successful with that. i am going to use the yeast arrest for a month along with the fem-dophilus and then after that i will be using the yeast arrest every month for 4 days when i have my period for 4 months. those are the directions on the package. and clindamycin is clindesse right? i used that already.. twice. it didn't even make it go away that time. just gave me a really bad yeast infection. that's what my doctor prescribed for me the first time i was diagnosed with it and i have a feeling that if i didn't take it i wouldn't be where i am now. but oh well. so that's what i'm doing.
i've used flagyl at least 3 or 4 times. metrogel a few times too. never worked. FOR ME though. it doesn't work for a lot of people, but maybe it will for some. jewels i wish you wouldn't stop posting on here. you have been a real big help to me. i tried the flagyl vaginally after you did and it did work for a little while, i might try it again but i'm trying the yeast arrest for now.

if someone wants to take the antibiotics they were prescribed then that's their choice. even though it may not have worked for a lot of people, it may work for them. we can give advice and opinions but nobody should be telling people what and what not to do or say. and a lot of people have been doing that. everybody's results are going to be different depending on their situation. so what works for one person might not work for someone else. that's why we need everyone's experience so that people have a lot of different methods to choose from. everyone needs to stop criticizing eachother.

right on ,anitsirhc!!!! My sentiments exactly. like having this condition isnt enough deal with

Hey anitsirhc. I'm glad your appointment wasn't too bad. So does this mean you won't be treated for the BV, just the UTI?

If flagyl makes you violently ill, you should take clindamycin. Did your PP-doctor/RN mention that? How did they suggest you deal with the BV? If reading 96 pages of this thread has taught me anything, it's that there is no OTC cure for BV. If BV has been confirmed by an exam, you should take antibiotics.

Did they have anything to say about the lower abdominal pain you've been feeling? Is that a symptom of the UTI? (Let's hope so.)

Either way, I highly recommend that you take the fem-dophilus especially while you're taking the Septra.


yes i am only getting treated for the UTI. but because i choose not to take the antibiotics for the BV. not because they make me sick, because they don't work for me. it goes away for a little bit and then returns a lot worse. if i keep taking them over and over and over again i don't think that's very good for my body. i'd rather use natural ways. that's why i'm using the Yeast Arrest. and there are a few people on this board (i don't remember who) who were successful with that. i am going to use the yeast arrest for a month along with the fem-dophilus and then after that i will be using the yeast arrest every month for 4 days when i have my period for 4 months. those are the directions on the package. and clindamycin is clindesse right? i used that already.. twice. it didn't even make it go away that time. just gave me a really bad yeast infection. that's what my doctor prescribed for me the first time i was diagnosed with it and i have a feeling that if i didn't take it i wouldn't be where i am now. but oh well. so that's what i'm doing.

oh and she didn't tell me anything really about the pain. she checked me for cysts (which are possible since my mom has them) but didn't find anything. it's probably from the UTI and/or BV. i started the yeast arrest and septra yesterday and my pain isn't really there today so it's probably that.

I can say, with full 100% knowledge that the FLAGYL orally, won't work. IF YOU HAVE REOCCURING B.V. Why??? Can I say this?? ASK ANYONE ON HERE IF IT'S WORKED FOR THEM!!!! The answer is the same, over and over again. No, No, and again, No.

Hey Morphia:

Have you ever used Monistat from just your generic store for the burning? I know it's for yeast infections but it really helps the burning from my bv. I have been checked by several doctors telling me that I have bv and not yeast but for some reason the monistat helps relieve some burning. I don't use it all the time but sometimes when I am desperate and can't stand taking Flagyl one more time I will buy the Monistat 3 day and after I use it the burning goes away almost completely. Of course bv comes back the next month but at least I get a few weeks of no burning.

The CONDESENDING ATTITUDES, IS NOT WORTH MY TIME OR EFFORT. EVERYONE is so willing to to criticize solutions we have found, BUT HAVE NO SOLUTIONS THEMSELVES.

Objecting to your telling people to mis-use prescription medication is not condescending. I think it's cool that you're sharing what you're doing. But you shouldn't tell people "nothing else will work."

And it's not true that we have not thought up solutions. Read my blog, there are solutions - probiotics.

Sassy, I just started taking them so I am going to give them a few months to see if they work as the herbal stuff takes longer to kick in I think. I will keep you posted on whether it works for me or not. At this point I am willing to try anything.

I want to make a quick comment to everyone as well. Really, do you think that we are never gonna argue? We will. It's impossible to not have disagreements. I like to think of them more as "debates." I don't want to see any member leave, or scare off any new comers because we are always bitching. "Debates" are gonna happen, I would like to think of everyone on this board as my sister, friend, teacher, and everything else that is good.

It is very hard to understand everyones "tone" through the internet, and that sucks...if we all we sitting on the couch sipping on a beer, it wouldn't get this heated. So let's all remember that. As for me, I'm sarcastic...very much... makes my humor easily misunderstood. I can't change who I am...and well, the only thing I want to change is getting rid of this bv.

I'm thankful that I found this board.

I'm done with this board. I wasn't going to leave, but, it's not worth MY STRESS LEVEL ANYMORE. The CONDESENDING ATTITUDES, IS NOT WORTH MY TIME OR EFFORT. EVERYONE is so willing to to criticize solutions we have found, BUT HAVE NO SOLUTIONS THEMSELVES.



I would like to touch upon a point. I know that all of us here have developed BV for different reasons. I got mine from repetitive douching. But whatever the reason for having it, we are all extremely upset and stressed out. The body is designed to handle stress. That is fine. But stress that goes on and on and on, causes problems. Ulcers, nervous breakdown, heart attacks. Yes these are extreme examples. But in our position of compromised immune function, stressing is the one thing we should not be doing right now. Because it will just compound our problems. Hormones work in a cascading manner, one hormone is eventually converted into another, and so on. The adrenal glands take cholesterol, turn it into pregnenolone, then turn it into progesterone, cortisol, or DHEA, then turn it into progesterone, adrenalin or estrogen. I have a chart that I am looking at right now. (If I find one online, I will post it later.) And it seems pretty clear to me from looking at this chart that if the adrenals are working over-time always producing cortisol and adrenalin, then they certainly are going to have a hard time producing the estrogen and progesterone we need. This is bad. We all know that in order to remain healthy, we need the correct balance of hormones. If the process is constantly being interrupted with excessive stress, then a deficit will occur. We already know that some of us have BV from hormone issues. Many older women experience dryness because of drops in hormonal levels. But menopause is not the only reason for hormonal imbalance. Dieting, taking/stopping the birth control pill, pregnancy, hysterectomy, and stress will all effect your hormones levels as well. When progesterone and the estrogens drop, one of the side effects is dryness. Your skin becomes dryer and thinner. And the mucose membranes of your body become dryer and thinner as well. This is a bad thing for your intestines and your vagina, because the mucosa layer is supposed to provide a comfortable barrier between the millions of microorganisms and us. Both the vagina and the intestines have microorganisms in them which are either beneficial or pathogenic - regardless, they do not live right on your skin, and are not meant to be pushed into the skin. If the protective mucosa barrier isn't there, these microorganisms are more easily pushed into the skin, via sex, or constipation for example; causing all kinds of problems like Irritible Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Colitis, Bacterial Vaginosis, etc.

So the first thing everyone should do, is chill out.

Lori, don't tell me what I can and cannot say. I say my piece and others do not have to take it as gospel. They should merely take it into consideration. The other reason why I believe in it is because I have read about women that developed vulvodynia over the years due to using too many CREAMS to fight bv. I'm here to tell my experience and what I've researched. I did not say "I KNOW FOR SURE" I said I firmly believe. Stop picking everything apart, Lori. I do believe you can be a help to this board but you're just so damn arrogant. I want to get along with you, but you don't make it easy.

My question seems to have gotten lost in all the bullshit. So I'll ask again. Has anyone here used a Z-pack before? I can't remember if anyone here has or not. As I've said, I have read this entire thread but I can't remember everything. lol.

I know that a lot of drugs are discovered by accident and scientific advancement requires creative thinking. So I'm not discouraging that. But I feel like a lot of what you say is not grounded in reality and has a very "grasp at straws" quality to it which isn't very helpful.

(Also, I don't see any links in your post, so I can't read up on what you're talking about.)

How in the hell do you attach links? I haven't had the computer very long, so I don't know jack. Having a friend come over tonight to show me.

But maybe if you google it you can find it (if not I will attach the link after I learn how) Type in The V Book chapter 10 yeast infections (separating the truths from the popular beliefs).

Lori, what do you feel is not grounded? And yes, I may be grasping it straws....i think of it more as looking for a needle in the haystack.

I have done a lot of reading, maybe too much, but I don't plan on stopping...and anything that I can think of I will investigate.

Maybe your right, I will stop mentioning "out there" thoughts such as toilet paper harvesting bacteria. I mean that is just pure insanity since Morphia got a crazy ass skin infection from a towel.
And that many of us use it as "panty liners".
Why did the hospital make me use sterilized water and gauze to wipe with when I had no stiches?

I don't know, I didn't ask.

I don't want to scare everyone, but obviously, there is something compromised with our immune systems..and I think we should be very careful.

I am gonna write a letter to that doctor that is now conducting research of the BV epidemic. He is, I'm sure grasping at many straws.

I have his name chicken scratched someone in my notes. (he's not the dude selling shit, just interested in finding the cause, and well... getting the reward money too, I'm sure lol)

I'm here to tell you what works for me. For over a year now, we've said the same thing over and over again. "WHAT WORKS FOR ME, MAY NOT WORK FOR YOU, AND VICE VERSA".

I'm done with this board. I wasn't going to leave, but, it's not worth MY STRESS LEVEL ANYMORE. The CONDESENDING ATTITUDES, IS NOT WORTH MY TIME OR EFFORT. EVERYONE is so willing to to criticize solutions we have found, BUT HAVE NO SOLUTIONS THEMSELVES.

I DON'T HAVE B.V. anymore. But I'm wrong here right?

AND NO, I DID NOT GET A YEAST INFECTION FROM HELL FROM USING THE FLAGYL VAGINALLY. If you READ...YOU WILL SEE WHY I DID. It's called, using the flagyl vaginally, then having sex, then using it again. Um...yeah, that caused a yeast infection. The other time, when I used it CORRECTLY, no yeast infection. Fucking read people, before you post your bullshit stuff, and if you don't HAVE TIME TO READ IT, or UNDERSTAND MY CONDITION, THEN DON'T FUCKING REPLY AS IF YOU KNOW ME, OR MY BODY.

GOODBYE.....SASSY, PIANOGIRL..IF YOU EVER WANT TO TALK, JUST SEND ME A P.M. I get email notifications on those. But I won't be posting on this board anymore. IT'S OUT OF CONTROL.

Good luck ladies. I really hope you find yourself a cure.

Your damn right, I'm ideas are bit out there..I'm not denying that. But don't you think it's a bit out there that scientist developed a vaccine for polio from a monkey's liver or kidneys..can't remember. That to me is "out there" lol Science is "out there".

I know that a lot of drugs are discovered by accident and scientific advancement requires creative thinking. So I'm not discouraging that. But I feel like a lot of what you say is not grounded in reality and has a very "grasp at straws" quality to it which isn't very helpful.

I'm not saying that your contribution is not valuable - you suggested the possibility of a staph infection, which I think is very worth keeping in mind. You also said other things that made me think. So keep doing what you're doing - but just letting you know that you should stay focused on facts while you do it.

As far as yeast goes - as you know, everyone has some yeast in their system. It's when your immune system is compromised that the yeast overgrows and causes problems. (For example, AIDS patients suffer from yeast infections all over their body - mouth, anus, vagina, etc.) It's not clear to me that yeast alone is the cause for any disease - I don't think of it as harmless, but the sign of yeast overgrowth is usually a sign of an underlying problem.

So basically your theory is that you have an overgrowth of yeast caused by taking pharmaceuticals for a long time, which is killing the good bacteria in your system and somehow causing your BV. While the pharmaceuticals probably took its toll on your body, I don't really agree with your theory that yeast is the cause of your BV.

I'm not saying you shouldn't explore this, I just think that your perception might be a little off center. (Also, I don't see any links in your post, so I can't read up on what you're talking about.)

Hello ALL..

I noticed that when I increased my water intake and stopped drinking pop and other high sugar drinks it seemed to help my bv. Like, the smell was not as strong as it used to be. Has anyone else noticed this about water. We all know that water is very important and flushes out the system and maybe with some like in my case water can help with the bv smell. Just thought I throw that out there to you all....No, it is not an answer to the bv but it never hurts to flush out your system with water.

GOD BLESS YOU ALL......
