ok so i noticed a new pain today. usually it's cramp like feelings and also some soreness that feels like it's actually in my vagina. now today i started feeling a pinching feeling. felt like someone was sticking something pointy up there and poking me with it. i'm a little worried now. i made an appointment for monday so i'll find out something then hopefully. sad.gif

morphia that's horrible i'm sorry. maybe a warm shower would help. (i would say a bath but we all know that's a no-no.) or a heating pad to calm things down. aww i feel bad for you. maybe you can call up your doctor and ask for something to help with the pain?

Morphia:
I feel soooooo bad for you! I remember going through the same exact thing. Be prepared because finding a GOOD doctor is very hard. I went through about 10-15 different doctors and I know half thought I was crazy/hypochondriac. I kept thinking "Do these people not see/ smell this rotten shit coming out of my vagina?". I know it was there because at one time it was sooooo bad that when they stuck the spectrum in my vagina, the discharge would come running out. So, with that being said, I know I was not crazy! Doctors are so fucking lazy. They don't care about shit other than what kind of insurance you have. It's sad I had to find my own fucking cure. Knock on wood! Good luck gurl! smile.gif

Guys, I need help!

ok my MAJOR problem with this b.v./yeast shit is that when I get my period the smell is TERRIBLE! It's the worst smell I could even think of! I am really tempted to purchase tampons because of how bad it can get. I'm talkin' not only me smelling the FUNK, but I know damn well the people around me are suffocated by it! I feel bad for my boyfriend 'cause he has to put up with it when he's with me.Although I change the pad very often, (1-2 hours never longer) the smell just doesn't subside.

I really need suggestions because i'm helpless. Should I try the tampons? My only concern is that it may things much worse, especially smell-wise. Please HELP!

I just got back from the doctor's office. I asked for a culture and he said that he'd never done a culture. That they don't do cultures....Also when I told him about my pelvic pressure he just said "Hmm" and shrugged and then proceeded to tell me that there was no relation to the bv or the cervical dysplasia.So they did a wet prep which came back as inconclusive. But he did allude to the fact that my ph was indicative of bv (didn't say it outright for some reason). So they're running the affirm test. And hopefully I should know in about an hour. The colposcopy was terrible. It burned so bad. And when they were injecting the local anesthetic I couldn't stop shaking. I was already upset by the fact that this doctor just wasn't listening to me and then when the pain set in I just couldn't stop crying. This was by far the most terrible experience of my life. He took several biopsies, which I could still feel over the anesthetic....How do I go about finding a doctor that does cultures? How do I go about finding a doctor that's better than this incompetent piece of shit? The burning is killing me. I can feel it on the inside and on the outside. I've taken a tylenol with codeine and even that is not helping. I just want this to go away...

Go ahead and ignore away. But it won't change the fact that when people tried to help you, your reaction was very rude. And then those very people turned out to be right. I guess you won't be reading this message, but I think you should apologize.

And you've been told this before: if you're going to bite people's head off, don't ask for help in the first place.

I recently just started reading about yeast, I really don't know jack shit about it. But I think that we all have some rare type of yeast that is killing our good bacteria. I didn't know that just because you don't itch or have cottage cheese creeping out that you could still have a massive yeast infection in your blood.

I once talked to a holistic remedy consultant, and she told me to spit in a cup of water, and let it sit overnight. If by the next morning there was a certain pattern in the glass, that meant I had too much yeast in my system.

Or something like that, I forget.

Anyway, she also told me all these awful things that could happen to my body because of too much yeast (not just yeast infections). And then she tried to sell me these pills that would solve the problem.

I'm not saying she's wrong, or right. I don't know jack shit about yeast either. But whenever someone tries to sell me something, that's when they kind of lose credibility with me. (Although since she was a holistic remedy consultant, I should have expected her to sell me stuff anyway ...)

Oh Morphia.

*shaking my head*

Anyway, here are my suggestions:
  • Tell you doctor you are concerned about the possibility of PID, because you have constant pain/pressure in your lower abdomen.
  • I think this is a useful article (re: Mycoplasma genitalium) Print it out and bring it with you if you think it will help.
  • Ask for a bacterial culture.
  • If you're not ready for a colpo, the doctor will decide that.
Best of luck to you. I hope everything goes well, that you feel better, and you get closer to finding out what's wrong and how to best treat it.

I understand that you are stressed out and in pain. But wow, you have got some nerve. Apologies are in order, and I think you know that.

[Edit] I found the ignore function. My doctors appointment is in an hour and a half. I'll let them know what's going on with me and hope they don't do the colpo. But at the same time I want them to get it done and over with ASAP. What if I have some kind of cancer or precancer that's causing all of this?

I knew antibotics caused them, but I didn't know that steroids did as well. I'm no weight lifter trying to acquire more muscle mass, I was on steriods for asthma for years. Recently my doctor put me back on them.... I will not be using them any longer.

We need some kind of combo med pack that can work together killing the bacteria and yeast at same time.

Morphia..I have the piss your pants thing too. Have since I was younger. You know what else is odd, and my friends laugh because they don't believe me...but I have to put in a new tampon whenever I pee because it gets urine on it if I don't..And it doesn't matter of how high or low I insert it. My anatomy is not correct.

Morphia,
It is dangerous! Don't get the colpo. I had one when I was prego, they cut a piece of my crvix..even though they said that they weren't going to... Don't get it right now...(but that's just my opinion.

Nope...it only gets worse. It doesn't get better. Guess what happened to me today?! I PISSED MYSELF! Hahaha. Whatever is going on with me is affecting my entire genitourinary tract and I don't see an end to it! I've had what they call "giggle incontinence" my entire life. You make me laugh too hard and its Niagara Falls. Usually you have to make me laugh pretty damn hard for it to happen. But today, I laughed hard for about 2 seconds and the stuff just came out in one quick spurt. Luckily I had an extra pair of pants in my car. Unfortunately I had no underwear. So I went to the Tool concert (My FAVORITE band by the way. They are god.) tonight without underwear. I did some sweating "down stairs" and now my ass crack is sore! I took a shower and washed it off and its still sore! And there is also an odor there too that didn't go away with washing. So now I think I might have a yeast infection in my ass crack! (My doc and I are pretty sure I've had one before.) I also think I have a bv/yeast coinfection too because the burning only continues to worsen. Especially since I've pretty much stopped my diet and started smoking again. So now my vag burns and smells, my pelvis feels like there is a balloon in it, I'm as incontinent as a damn 80 year old and my ass crack feels like somebody sand papered it! HAHAHAHAHA! This is fucking HILARIOUS! My luck is shit. I can't wait till tomorrow when my old school doctor laughs in my face for all the questions and suggestions I'm going to have. He's probably just going to think I'm one of those internet head cases that gets paranoid from "reading too much." The second the words "Mycoplasma" and "Ureaplasma" pass my lips he'll probably start tuning me out from then on. I'm so angry right now. That Tool concert was a spiritual experience for me but I could not immerse myself completely into its glory because of that wretched sweat and BURN! I HATE THIS SHIT!

And how the holy hell am I supposed to get a colpo with these infections going on? Isn't it dangerous to do a biopsy with the shit I've got brewing down there?

Morphia, make sure that you tell your doctor to check for that bacteria common with strep...or any other bacterial infection that you have had. Like I had mentioned earlier that I had a bacterial pink eye infection...I'm gonna look and see what bacteria are common with that infection, as well as strep, and ear infections, sinus infections, respiratory infections... I was very sick as a kid..suffered from those infections often, and spent much of my childhood in the hospital. Different antibotics treat different bacterias.. Who knows.... Doctors are lazy....

I don't give a shit if they think I'm nuts...but I am the fucking customer, and I'm paying so they better do as I ask or I will just go somewhere else. Like I said it won't hurt to know. Noone knows enough about this shit anyways.

Do you think bacteria can crossbreed...?

I know how you all are feeling, I'm more rotten smelling then a fish boat right now. I know it's proly not a good idea to wear tampons on account of that you stink..but i do.

I'm wanting to read more about body temperatures when I get time, just becasue i know your body temperatures change throughout a womens monthly cycle, and you can even tell when your fertile by monitoring your temperature. (I think it rises?) not sure. I'm just curious what effects temperature has on maintaining your body ph balance, or none at all... Does acid become more acidic when heated...or does base become more alkaline.

I'm sure as fuck its not gonna solve the chronic bv mystery but I'm curious.

I know for sure that the smell is still there. People make it extremly apparent when they're near me. Even though it bothers me that they talk shit when i'm around them, I really don't care anymore. I KNOW that I DO take a shower every morning and may be even more clean than they are! Shit, I take a shower twice a day or more.

I got b.v. when I got pregnant. I remeber, that at the time I had yeast, Trying to rid myself of disharge, I douched daily with plain water. I think the bacteria multiplied faster with the water . Which, in turn gave me the worst case of BV anyone could ever have! My vagina smelled like SHIT or a really nasty FART! mad.gif

I said that I was gonna take a bv vacation today, but I lied. Thoughts race through my mind all day..and I can't stop it. I'm really interested in hearing womens results of the bacterias that are found in thier cultures that will be done. Some virgin girls that had reoccurring vaginosis, it was discovered that it was an infection that had spread from an upper respriratory infection from her ears that was never noticed or treated, the bacteria ended up down there somehow. Maybe a few of us could discover that it is from a simple strep throat bacteria that we never had treated. I'm really hoping that will help some of us. My son came home with strep throat 3 times this year, he is always drinking after me, and for a few days my throat would get very sore...but then go away on its on..wishful thinking I know but it couldn't hurt to check.....



This is very interesting. I had chronic strep throat when I was younger. To the point that I had to have my tonsils removed. But that doesn't keep you from getting it again. You can still get it, you just don't know what it is since you don't have tonsils to get all swollen, purple and puss ridden. Its very possible this could be the case for me. I will let you know how EVERYTHING goes after tomorrow. I wanted to take a bv vacation today too but I can't. My symptoms are only getting worse, or at least changing. My discharge is a light yellow now and my burning gets worse with heat. This is going to be a WONDERFUL summer.

That's the part about BV that I hate the most, the wondering if other people can smell it, and if they can, it's the wondering if they know it's emanating from your girly bits.

Unfortunately I know that others can smell it, and that they know exactly what it is. Because, I smelled it in another woman who was walking through a corridor and I was sitting in a student lounge. sad.gif But, obviously, having had experience with it too, I just felt bad for her. sad.gif Gah. It sucks.

I've been really, really lucky with the boric acid. I just use it after sex and right after my period and I'm odor free. I hope (knock on wood) that I continue to be lucky with it. I do tend to develop a bit of an odor right before my period, but I don't bother with the boric acid until after.

I hope you who are having more stubborn problems find something that works.


Hello, Treehugger

The smell of bv consumes me at all times as far as wondering if someone smells it. I am also using the boric acid( I am using the yeast arrest that contains boric acid) and it has been working for me too. But I know that it may or may not stop working for me so I am making sure that I have an arsenal of products that I can turn to that is why I really love this board and all the information everyone provides..

Morphia--That story you posted about the woman who had HPV and got tested for "mycoplasma" and "ureaplasma"...that's news to me. How come doctors never test for these since HPV is getting very common? I had an abnormal pap smear back in October but it only showed up as mild dysplasia and not technically HPV. I've sinced cleared the dysplasia. I've had BV for a LONG time (even when I was a virgin) so I know that my BV isn't connected to the dysplasia but I wonder why nobody has ever mentioned all of this? I'm getting increasingly more frustrated as I read all of the new posts by new members...everyone is suffering in their own hell and doctors aren't helping. Not only does this one infection RUIN any confidence a woman has about her sexuality and cleanliness...it could be doing damage to her reproductive organs. It amazes me that doctors don't take this infection more seriously. sad.gif
