I have sad news to report. I had some discharge today...not as much as I usually had, but the BV could just be showing itself slowly sad.gif I plan on having sex tonight and having a few drinks tomorrow, so I am going to wait until Sunday, see what happens between now and then and probably insert another pill. I will keep you all posted though! I'm not ready to give up on this treatment yet!
BTW...congratulations Sassy! Hopefully we will find something (hopefully this) that works before your honeymoon!

My relief too, sadly, was short lived. I don't know if it's a hormonal thing since I'll be bleeding again soon or what, but my symptoms are back...
at least I had mess free sex once, i guess... right?
I got approved for state health insurance yesterday so I'll get a flagyl script and try it once I see a doc.

Good luck all!

Well Guys...I noticed a little discharge last night. I guess the supplements were just a temporary fix rolleyes.gif But I'll keep taking them since I didn't buy them for BV anyway.

So I might jump on the Flagyl Insert bandwagon!

Have a good weekend ladies!!!!

Awesome Aggravated. I wouldn't insert anymore either. I don't think I needed to do 3, but it was my first time trying, and I had no idea what to do. I can tell you though that I did get a major yeast infection, however, that could have been from having sex while I was doing the Flagyl vaginally. So, just wait and see what happens. Give it a few days, and if the smell returns, use 1 more, but be ready to treat the yeast.

Mine is still gone. I'm going on a month now, and still no smell at all. No fish, no sewer, no smell.

Good luck!!

That's great aggravated. Definately let us know what happens!! If it works for you too, I'm convinced and I will definately order some flagyl. I have a honeymoon coming up in September and I DO NOT want to smell like the ocean.

I don't post here much, but I read the thread ALL the time to stay up on what everyone is trying and what is working for them. I was inspired by Jewels and her success, so I tried inserting 1 500mg. pill of Metronidazol (the generic form of Flagyl) vaginally last night. It's only been about 17 hours, but I have been completely dry all day! It's been almost a year since I've went this long without any discharge! I'm afraid to get overly excited about this yet, but I think this might work! I've been keeping up with taking the acidophilus and I have 2 Diflucan pills here in case I need them, but if the yeast comes...that goes away! I will keep a close eye, but I'm not going to insert another pill unless I see the BV symptoms return. I hope this continues to work, and I hope we all continue with success in whatever we all try! Thanks for being here for me ladies!

hi ladies,

l haven't been on here in awhile. back in december i told my obgyn that i wanted flagil (can't spell) and she gave it to me to see if i would get relief from it and i did. it's been a couple of months and no odor or heavy discharge even after getting my period. before the meds, i had issues like crazy. i've been on the flagil many times before and it took my symtoms away for a little bit but they always seem to come back so we'll see how long this will last. i'll keep you updated. hope everryone is doing well and maybe using an old treatment could help since our bodies are always changing. i did the metro gel (before flagil) which is like flagil but gel form but when i got my period, all my symtoms came back. that's why i told my doc to give me the pill form. she wouldn't at first because it's used to treat bv and she didn't want to treat me for something i didn't have. anyways, just popping in to say hi.

ttyl...

Quiet: Here's the web that I used. Remember though, the 500mg are strong, you might want to do something for yeast as well.

ok i'm back again!! i tried the hp tonight for the second time. and i think my vagina doesn't like having things in it because i can't get it to stay in for anything. i sat there for the 3 minutes and again when i got up to let it out nothing came out. i kind of feel it coming out a little bit now but i was just expecting some to come out when i stood up. i lay with my body practically upside down to try and get it to stay in and it still all comes out and runs down! it was all over haha.. gross. anyway, i think i will only do this for a week and then try what atumnbreeze has been taking. i'm lucky to have found this site just as everyone started finding things that actually work. thanks for sharing everything. biggrin.gif

Autumn - what exactly is this enzyme suppliment you started taking?


I bought both supplements from Wal-Mart. The enzyme sup is by Rexall. It has a purple top and it's called Multi-Enzyme Formula Digestive Aid. It says it aids in the breakdown of proteins, carbs, and fats. Both supps were both in the section with the vitamins. As I said before, I'm not sure which one is fighting the BV but I thought it was just so intesting that two unrelated issues (hair shedding & digestion) would lead me to something that helps with BV biggrin.gif

LOL to those doing the "whiff test" I myself do it and I keep doing it because I cant believe the progress.


Great news Dep. about the doc. I think a doctor that listens to what you have to say and shows compassion is great. I called my doc about a month ago to discuss a hormonal imbalance and needless to say they never returned my call(s) ..I followed up several times and nothing.... I am in the process of looking for a new one.

THanks for all the info. ladies

quietmadness, what prescription are you looking for?

Great information everyone!!

Deprime: My vagina also looked funny from the HP. But it does the same thing if I get to much on my hands. It also gave me a soar spot like near my anus, from running down. I took care of that with a little vaseline. KEEP US POSTED!! I'm happy you FINALLY had a good experience.

My smell is still gone. I am in so much shock over this. It's been so long since I've had NO SMELL AT ALL, that I almost just don't know how to handle it, and I keep doing a whiff test on myself, expecting it to return. And still nothing.

Autumn: thank you for the information. Even though my smell is gone, I'm going to take what you are. Maybe it will be preventative at the very least, and I won't have to go through another yeast infection from hell.

Thanks again everyone!! Sounds like, we are all FINALLY on the right track!!! biggrin.gif

Britt: as far as the Boric Acid goes, I took mine to my doctor because I developed a rash from hell all over my forehead and arms. My doctor was actually excited about the Boric and was going to research it so they could get the info out to other patients. He said it was not harming me, and it WAS NOT the cause of my rash, however, I'm still not certain about that. I'm thinking now, my rash is stress related, because I haven't used Boric for MONTHS and I still have the rash.

At that accessrx place, do you have to have Dr's approval through them? Or a prescripton?

Or can you just order it without a bunch of shit?

I'd like to find somewhere I could get it without having to call the doc, or have a prescription.

Anyone know of a site like that?

Glad to hear that some of you are experiencing some relief.
Deprime: definitely keep us updated on what happens with the Reproductive Endocrinologist.
Britt: Welcome! Yes, it's the HP in the brown bottle and the BA is the same as in the roach killer..LOL. I've tried the HP but I'll admit that I've been too chicken to try the Boric Acid.

OK guys...*drum roll*....I think I may have stumbled upon a remedy for BV symptoms. A couple weeks ago I was searching the web for hair information. My hair sheds in the winter and I was looking for an easy fix. I kept coming across info on Evening Primrose Oil. So I decided to give it a try for my shedding.
Also, I picked up an Enzyme supplement because I feel that my digestive system is not working at it's optimal best. Soooooooo..Last Monday I began taking 1 EPO capsule (1000 mg) + 2 Enzyme tablets, twice a day (after breakfast and dinner). I immediately noticed my discharge & odor went away. I was excited but wanted to wait atleast a week before I came in here with the news. This may not work for everyone because I realize that we all have different symptoms,etc. But today is day 9 and the symptoms are still gone so even it my hair shedding doesn't stop, I don't care! I'm still going to continue taking both of these supplements. They each only cost about $6. On the EPO bottle, it says "For Women's Health". I don't know the "science" behind this so sorry, I don't have any links or articles to break it down. All I know is it's doing something and I hope it works long term.

Today I saw the reproductive endocrinologist. He (and another physician + med school student) were super friendly, willing to listen to me, and provided no-BS answers to stuff.

Basically what it boils down to is this: the first time I got BV, it came with a yeast infection. The vagina is a super delicate balance (we all knew that, though) -- if there's too much yeast, anaerobic bacteria are allowed to thrive. The vagina wants to normally be in equilibrium, but there are a lot of things that can throw it off balance (we all knew that, too.) According to the doctor, I need to stop treating myself for a while -- we're going to give it two weeks while he waits for the gram swab results to come back. I am not trying to persuade anyone to do anything, I am just reporting what the doc told ME... to stop doing the HP douche. He said that it had discolored my vagina but that my cervix looked healthy. Also, he said that the HP could be making my BV smell worse because of its chemical compounds. For the "whiff test" that many GYNs use to detect BV, they put the sample culture into KOH (potassium hydroxide.) The HP is H2O2, which has both oxygen and hydrogen molecules as well.

Oh, he also said that I don't have a fistula and that I don't have type 2 diabetes, two theories of mine. So...

Basically, the reproductive endocrinologist told me to not do any treatment; he'll call me back next week with the results and to schedule another appointment. Next time, depending on my results, we'll talk about ways of dealing with my odor/discharge. If it's not traditional BV, we'll look to do something else. For now, I have to let my vagina "air out"..lol.

Anyway, I know this isn't much new information, but it was really nice to have a group of professionals LISTEN to me and treat me like an adult. Like I said before, however, what this guy recommended was for me, so I would not recommend it for everyone.

As always, good luck to everyone.... I'll keep you posted!
