DO NOT USE ENZARA...IT DOES NOT WORK AND IT'S A HUGE WASTE OF MONEY! Several girls, including myself, have tried it and basically it's just a nice advertising campaign but there isn't any truth to its claims.

As for boric acid and sex, I wait until I don't have anymore of the clear boric acid discharge. (You get a clear discharge when you use each boric acid capsule...when the discharge is gone, I figure it's out of my vagina.) I use condoms and it doesn't seem to harm them, although I'm also on birth control so I don't completely rely on their effectiveness.

Happy Monday Everyone....

I decide to try the boric acid and bought it yesterday, but I have to wait for the health food store to open to get the capsules today. I'm really excited though! One question that you all may or may not know the answer to: does boric acid have any effect on condoms? And how long after the boric acid should I wait to have sex? (Thought I saw 3 days somewhere on here, but can't be sure). Thanks y'all!

hi ladies, well i took a top up of BA after getting a slight odour with my usual secretions not fishy more like that post period funk but no smell after sex so i'll see how it goes maybe i'll use it once a week when i get symtoms and if no symptoms i wont take it.

Also i hve been inserting mine in the morning i wear a liner pad, i wash in evening evrything normal almost as soon as i insert BA. am considering a BA douce/sitz mayybe 1 tsp in a quart of water to see the effects, keep u posted if i do.

and acidophilus when i remember, need to tighten up with that!

My UTI is gone and I've been using the boric acid again. I don't think the two were related...at least I hope not!!

Help me ladies! Im new here and i just came across this site while trying to find self-treatments for BV!
Many of you are saying that BV is sex related but I am a 17 year old virgin and im pretty sure that i have BV and I hate it. Ive had boyfriends but none that i want to get seriously intimate with because of this problem! Ive had it for ages now and I dont think i could go to the doctor cos i feel too embarrassed.

Hi Ladies,
I just found this board today and I feel like….jumping for joy or something. I have been suffering with bv for nearly two years. I’ve tried flagyl, metrogel, clindamax, garlic cloves, you name it. Right now, I have managed to get rid of the odor, and all I have is the itching and discharge.

I guess I’m just posting to show solidarity. It feels so good to know I’m not the only one, and to have new things to try. I wish everybody the best of luck in getting rid of this.

Yeah, I don't have any of those symptoms thank God. I only had a slight ache in my right side of my back, but I think that had something to do with the way I was sleeping. I only had that very slight hint of fish and nothing since, and as you all know, it was the weekend which meant a catch up of sex. (And yes, it's getting old) lol, but, anyways, no smell, and I'm only going to use the boric twice a week, and again only after sex. Shorty, thanks for taking the test for us. For me, I may be able to get by only using it after sex. Just to kill whatever funk he has going on inside of him, which I feel is the cause to this. Damn, if I just didn't love him so much!! lololololol.

as someone who does not have sex, i can attest to the fact that I have had a series of BV infections that have increased in frequency despite the fact that I abstain...just my two cents

hi all
well its been a couple of days since my 1 dose of boric, the following day no odour or drip, i had sex last night no odour during or after and im all good today. Im not planning on taking any more boric acid as a preventer im just observing if and when it comes back all im taking is acidophilus 2 tabs daily and lots of probiotic yogurts as snaks. Will keep you posted.

Ps i hope it doesnt cause uti's that would be so unfair, perhaps its related to longterm use of boric acid , like i said i will be the 1 dose guuinea pic i mean collectively we have found and tested a cure, now its time to get some concise dosage and length of use info.

Good luck 2 all

Urinary tract infections make you pee a lot and it burns really bad. Back pain can also be a symptom if it's around your kidney area. I hope the boric acid isn't what caused mine. I'm on antibiotics for it now.

Hey all. Well the Boric seems to be still working. I did have a very slight hint of fish two nights ago, but I hadn't used the boric for a few days. My boyfriends mother had a stroke, and he has been gone, so I figured I didn't need to use it as much. Obviously I was wrong. I guess with Boric, it's going to be lifetime, or, until I decide to stop smoking and drinking so much coffee, which I'm thinking is why my b.v. is so bad. I had to be on this forever, because as with everything, you never really know what kind of long term damage it's going to do. I've developed some pain in my lower right back, and not sure if it's related to the boric. Sassy, what are the symptoms of a UTI? Anyways, just wanted to give you all an update. Still going strong with the Boric!!

Hello ladies,

I am 28 years old and I've been battling BV on and off for about 4 years now. It began with the ping pong effect of bv and then yeast. I would get BV once every 6 months or less often. Then every 3 to 4 months and now I've had it twice in lesss than two months. On top of that I"ve been diagnosed with having vulvodynia, which my doctor presumes was brought on by over the counter yeast infection creams.

I've been researching this for years and have used everything from clindesse, metrogel, garlic cloves (inserted) to Wise Woman suppositories recommended by my naturopath, acidophilus suppositories, twice daily yogurt suppositories (which got rid of the symptoms for months at at time but now isnt as effective), oregano oil, herbal infused douches, berberine complex (from goldenseal)...you name it. They all worked but it was only temporary appeasement.

I got a second course of antibiotics for my beau and myself. It worked the first time around but after the second time of unprotected sex with him (he is uncircumsized) it came back.

I've decided to follow this regimen before taking metronidazole and so far the symptoms are gone but the bacteria could very well still be there on a microscopic level. The repHresh/acidophilus milk/water seemed to have cleared up the odor. I've decided to take the antibiotics after my period comes since the blood is alkaline and will more than likely encourage the growth of bacteria. During the course of antibiotics I will still follow this regimen until my doctors appointment. If everything is clear I will contine the regimen and take acidophilus (got from pharmacy at cvs), acdiophilus milk internally and vaginally (especially after sex, proctected for atleast 1-3 months). I've also bought some plain organic Kefir, Stoneyfield and HOrizon ogranic yogurt to eat daily. Here is my regimen:

Regimen

Systemic support



Cut out sugars, breads, yeast, processed and refined foods as much as possible
Drink6-10 cups of water daily (48-80ounces)
Consume 4-8 ounces of plain organic yogurt
Take 4-10 Table spoons of acidophilus milk
Drink 6-8 ounces of unsweetened cranberry juice daily
Take 4-12 cranberry capsules with water daily
Take Immune Health supplement "System Well Ultimate Imumunity" by Nature's Way 3 pills 2x daily
Drink several cups of strong Pau d arco tea (unsweetened)
Take 1000mg – 3000mg of Vitamin C daily
Take 60 mg of Zinc daily
Take 2000mg to 6000mg of Flaxeed Oil daily (2-6 gel caps)
Take 2-4 garlic pills daily with meal


Internal support

Alternate:

Use Rephresh gell every three days. Use acidophilus milk/water douche (morning and night) on days not using rephresh gel. i.e. if you use Rephresh gel in Monday, use acidophilus milk/water douche morning and night on Tuesday and Wednesday and Rephresh on Thursday and so on.





Note: after doctor’s visit continue with rpH gel twice weekly and the Acidophilus douche treatment once a day 5 times a week for about two weeks or more.


Other suggestions (have not incoporated yet, as I have not found the need too, but will definitely stop taking oral contraceptives):



Purchase acidophilus powder and capsules (good to superior quality) one strain (to be take internall and vaginally)

Get Aci Gel (just in case; it restores ph)

Stop birth control

Purchase “tiny kit” re-useable from CVS (reuseable douche to put water and acidophilus milk/powder mixture in)

Natural pads

REMEMBER IF A STRONG ANTIBIOTIC LIKE FLAGYLL NEEDS TO USED TWICE A DAY FOR A WEEK OR MORE, A NATURAL METHOD WILL HAVE TO BE USED VIGOROUSLY FOR SEVERAL months or ATLEAST A MONTH OR MORE.
