Hey lady! Umm, I started feeling the symptoms suddenly last night and immediately went to the store for some cranberry juice. Been drinking the hell out of that since last night. I know I need to drink more water too. I have had kidney stones in the past, and I'm not trying to get those again. So i better up the ante on this H2O.


Hope you feel better hun! And god I hope it isnt a kidney stone!

that sux!! have you tried drinking tons of water and cranberry juice to see if that helps? sometimes that will clear up a UTI without having to take more antiobiotics. i think they have over the counter UTI meds called AZO that are supposed to help relieve the symptoms also. good luck!

Has anyone experienced an increase in discharge with Flagyl?? I am on my 4th day of the medication (orally) and noticed an increase in discharge since yesterday. The pain and irritation is gone (so far)....but I was wondering if this is the infection coming out or if it could be making the infection worse???

sad.gif Hi I am a new member and also have been battling BV. I'm 30 and was in a relationship for 12 years never gotten BV once. I got divorced a year and a half ago and got BV for the first time this past summer. I had excessive discharge and a fishy smell. I went to the dr and it took 6 weeks to cure!!! It was 6 weeks of hell to say the least battling BV and yeast infections from the BV medication. Finally after taking Flagyl for 10 days straight with a suppository of gynazal and no sex for the full treatment it went away. Since that experience I have been a freak constantly examing my self with a mirror and smelling the discharge. I think my next stop will be a psychologist. Everybody thinks I am dramatic and crazy. Last week after me and my boyfriend had sex I was very sore and coincidentally had an apt with the gynocologist 2 days later to go on the pill. I figured I had a regular fungal yeast infection. So she checks me out by eye and says well I see alittle yellow and alittle white so it can be a mixture of BV and a fungal yeast infection and gives me diflucan and clindesse. I actually used one of those vagisil screening kits the night before and had a normal ph of 4.5 but I followed the drs orders and took the diflucan and clindesse and now a week later I am testing my ph and it is 5.5. I have no other symptoms of BV besides decreased acidity levels. Now I am petrified I have the BV back. I am hoping that maybe the medication decreased my acidity levels but I am noticing a little watery discharge but nothing coming out. My last experience was so gross it was everywhere so it is not like that. I called my Dr today and said it is imposssible it is BV and didn;t want to see me. So I made a decision to find a new dr and am going to my mom's on 12/27 to get checked out and a second opinion. How can a dr just diagnos by eye by seeing a white discharge? It is like going to the dr with a red throat and instead of doing a culture for strep sends you home with antibiotics. I read online the more antibiotics we take for this the more the BV becomes resistent. I also am trying for the next week Hydrogen Peroxide douches, has anyone tried this? I read it is pretty effective. Its worth a try because at this point I am mentally drained. When I was in my relationship for 12 years I was also on the pill so I am going back on the pill after my next period and maybe that will help. Who knows but it is nice to have a message board where I can talk to people battling the same problem.

I am sorry to hear about your troubles with BV. It does suck. But this message board is an awesome support system. I know my husband was sick of hearing about my on-going vaginal drama and its nice to have a place to go and vent and share tips.
You are doing the right thing by getting another doctor. They should def culture it and rule out yeast, etc.
Good luck hun!

I have a cure...OK NOT REALLY...BUT...the Tea Tree oil is the worst smelling stuff around!! So....instead of smelling like fish or a garbage disposal all day, I SMELT LIKE TEA TREE OIL!!!

So what's worse, smelling like tea tree oil, or fish?? I'll take the tea tree oil. It almost smells like Nail polish remover. Or, Turpen pine. LOL

I think I'll do one more tonight. I WOULDN'T USE THE TEA TREE SUPPOSITORIES IF YOU HAVE ANY IRRATATION. You might burn the crap out of your self!! Because it really did feel like menthol up there all night. And every time I rolled over, it felt like someone blowing up there with a couph drop in there mouth. HAHAHAH..YEAH, TRIED THAT WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, THAT'S WHY I KNOW THE FEELING!!! HAHAHAHAHAHHA

YES, we do discuss some crazy stuff on here!!!! Thank goodness you all can't see how red my face get's sometimes!!!


jewels where did you get your tea tree suppositories? i have some tea tree oil in my medicine cabinet that i use on blemishes sometimes. is that the same thing?

also just wanted to share that i recently started taking enteric coated peppermint/oregano oil capsules to help with my digestion problems. i've noticed it makes my girly bits smell minty fresh all day! my hubby and i were having sex the other night and all i could smell was the peppermint wafting from my nether region. smile.gif

hmm then maybe its a no-go for me. I am already kinda dry. LMAO

WELCOME BACK MORPHIA!! I made up my own Tea Tree oil suppositorie last night and tried it. It was like having a couph drop in there all night!! haha. What's the recommended use of those? Every night? Every other night? once a week?? Plz let me know, because I think it's a great idea! Us old members tired the tea trea oil last year, even went as far as soaking our mens, you know what's in it!! And we did have some results, just never perminant results.

Thanks for the info!! tongue.gif

Hahahahahaha...... cough drop! Jewels you are too funny.

Konphusion26, thats where I was on sunday I think...attacking from all angles! LOL
I just wasnt sure about continuing use of the boric acid because of the swelling. Did you have any of that? It wasn't like an allergic reaction...because there was no redness and my symptoms were MUCH better- but it was swollen.

I was reading old posts in this topic and saw some info on the JAMU stick as well. Some women saw results from that...if any of you are lurking around here- did it work long term?

Good luck Konphusion!! Let me know how it goes!

All griping and jokes aside-- as annoying and inconvenient as this BV mess is I must stop and thank God that it's not much worse than it could be. I sometimes sit and think "Lord, I'm glad that its not cancer or some other disease". I like to keep that in perspective. Yes, it angers me that I keep getting this, but i try to be grateful that this is minor in comparison to what some other people are going through with terminal illnesses and such.

I also think about, if it was just 100 women dealing with this, that would be one thing. But there are thousands upon thousands of women going through this daily. There should be something these doctors/scientists can do to cure us. Heck they're cloning animals and stuff! Then there's Viagra (come on man). There has to be something they can do to stop bacterial vaginosis. Ya know?? Until they do find something we have to continue supporting each other. I appreciate the tips and advice each and every one of you ladies contributes. Its very helpful in the fight. I have faith that we'll get through this.


I was just telling my sister that last night. If men got BV, there'd be a cure. wink.gif
But overall, yes, it could be worse...and for that I guess we should be thankful.

Dang sweetie. Try not to be upset. I know how you feel. Its annoying and an inconvenience. I can't take the flagyl orally, it makes me sick... So i'll have to do it vaginally as someone suggested (if it ever arrives!) . I'll let you know what happens with the discharge.




...just want to add you are all awesome. I am so thankful to have a place to b*** about my nether regions!! wink.gif
This is def an emotionally exhausting problem.

Thanks. unsure.gif I called the dr and they said it shouldn't be getting worse but maybe its the BV coming out. So who knows. The side effects are def horrible orally. I feel like I have the flu. Horrible headache and I keep thinking I am going to puke. But I was hoping I was putting up with this to get rid of the BV...so we'll see. Maybe its a minor set back.

This sh** SUCKS! It's been since Sept. Started with a round of Augmentin for strep throat. Got yeast and took Diflucan. Then from there I think the BV came back (I had it when I was pregnant with my daughter 4 yrs ago). I tried Clindesse twice and it always came back. Went to three GYN's (one said it was yeast and gave me Terazol which thank god I didnt use). The last one was sure it was BV. And thats where I am now- on the Flagyl. The thing is, I am super sensetive there. So...I am worried about using the boric acid for the full time I am supposed to...but i really think attacking from both ends needs to be done. I am hoping the probiotics come soon.

But yeah hun...this is sooo old already. And super-depressing. I have more discomfort than smell (not sure which is worse- LOL).

The Flagyl seems to be helping....so, I am holding out hope ONCE AGAIN rolleyes.gif

I tried boric acid for the first time last night. I bought pre-made yeast arrest because I'm lazy. I was expecting some leakage when I woke up this morning but there was nothing... is that normal? Did my body absorb everything, gel cap and all??

Hi Firebird. I had leakage but not until later in the day. Then it was kinda slow going. It wasn't like the other creams. And I also used Yeast Arrest. How do you feel otherwise??
