vaginalscent.com is a porn site!! lol, wow, wasn't expecting that!! I think that is more for women who have like body odor, not inside odor, like we have. My smell comes from the fluids in my body. Putting a "Mint" up there, may cause more serious problems then the ones I already have. I'll stick to Boric Acid!!

I just looked at that site... wowzas, what's with all the pussy pics? I'm not sure if this site should be taken seriously... what do you guys think? I heard about a book called "Vaginas: An owner's manual" and I've meant to check it out.
Oh, about the soaps... I used Dr. Bronner's pure castile soap (it was peppermint) downstairs for years and never had problems with it. Later I switched to this bar called "Natural Beauty Cleansing Bar" after I read about it in "The Guide to Getting it On." It said the vagina is naturally a bit acidic and most regular soaps are much more basic, and will disrupt the ph balance of the vag. The bar is more acidic (ph 4.5) and I like it a lot, leaves me feeling fresher longer I think. It's yellow and smells like lemon and it lasts a really long time. You can get it online or in some health food stores.

dr bronner makes a liquid unscented/baby soap. it's a bit pricey but it's highly concentrated and can be dilluted like 18 times or so. i put a bit in a bottle and fill it up with water. a big bottle lasts me Forever. i clean the house with it too.

as for smelly laundry, i would throw some baking soda and borax into the wash, just dissolved it and the detergent before putting in the clothes. use it a couple of times if it doesn't work the first time.

that boric acid, it's good for everything!

Hello Everyone,

I found boric acid suppositories for $10 online. I am wondering if I should buy them or make my own capsules as I am kind of scared I will do it wrong. Can someone let me know if suppositories are alright and also how far do you guys insert your homemade capsules...

Thanks so much,

PG

I wash the kitty with just plain warm water. I use the scented stuff on my other parts.If you have to have soap I would suggest the feminine wash because I heard they don't irritate the kitty as much.

WELCOME TO THE BOARD!

What kind of soap do you guys uses to bathe with. I have tried Ivory, Dial, organic olive oil soap and nothing seems to help. Some of the soaps made the problem worst. It is very hard to find a soap with absolutely no scent. It appears the soap industry prides themselves on their scented products

Hi everyone smile.gif

I stumbled across this forum, while searching for alternative cures for bv. I just wanted to write and tell everyone thank you. I was feeling so all alone in the world. Bv makes me feel dirty as tho I am an unclean person due to the retched smell. I though I was the only one suffering with this. I have tried everything my doc has prescribed. It goes away for awhile but it alway comes back. Thanks for letting me know I am not alone smile.gif

Emma22: Be strong!

quietmadness:Does the baking soda really work to keep the odor away because on some days I won't have Bv but I still smell it in my clothes(even after the boric acid treatment).I've even tried vinegar when I wash clothes and now I have gone from scented to unscented detergent.The unscented detergent is great but on really hot days I still get a faint musty chili dog smell(YUCK!).I don't have the money to buy all new clothes.Do you think if I took my clothes to the cleaners they might be able to get the odor out completely?

okay so I have this funky smell too, not really fishy, but funky kinda like what tree hugger mentioned so maybe I'll try the boric acid, but it kind of scares me to think about putting something like that in my vag. and I'm terrified of making it worse. I don't have sex often so it also seems to be lifestyle causing the smell for me (smoking, coffee, and such) and I would like to have sex more often but by the end of the day, I just know what the smell is going to be like and pretty much refrain from it


Yeah, I was really scared to try it too. I mean, the only bottle of it I could find said "rat poison" on it!!! But it *really* does work. Make sure it's 100 percent boric acid, and use size 00 capsules. I got the wrong size so I have to use a capsule and a half...but it still works. Like a charm. smile.gif

Girls, here's my issue. The fish smell, for the most part is gone....but my other smell is something undescribable. More like, rotten. Not really the smell of "Poop" per say, but just like rotten smell. And I only started getting this since I started using Boric. I've also developed lower stomach pains and a centralized back pain (Lower right side of back) REMEMBER, I had a hysterectomy. Still have the Ovaries, but everything else was taken. So, I'm worried that the boric may be doing some sort of damage?? Because really, when I stick it up there, where does it go?? I haven't had sex since August 19th, so I know it's not from that. Oh, speaking of Dial, that is all I have ever used down there. If I use anything else, I can smell the fish smell while washing. With Dial, if I have B.V. I can smell it, but how I know if it's gone is when I wash with Dial and there's no smell. Strange I know, but it works for me!!

did you notice if your kitty got, urm, 'rinsed' out during your bath? that can really disturb the balance of stuff in there.

that bleaching of the black panties thing has happened to me. totally wierd.

Funny you should mention that, quiet...not to contradict you at all...but I had just gone clothes shopping and was wearing brand new underwear and jeans both. I had laundered them at home using hot water and unscented/undyed Tide detergent.

And I had taken a really, long bath the night before and a long hot shower that morning. (this was yesterday). I normally use unscented castille soap but was out so I used Dial. I wonder if that's what threw things off??

I am pretty darned sure that I'm actually smelling the odor of the pink discharge.

Forgot to mention that when it's flaring up like this, my vagina is also sore and irritated. Kinda.

Thank you to whoever discovered the success of Boric Acid!

And this is another weird thing...I had a pair of black underwear, with no white lining? When I had BV once I wore them...and the discharge actually BLEACHED them!

An unhospitable climate here, folks. At least the boric acid is helping.

"That smell" that you're describing, Treehugger, comes from a couple things.

First, it's a buildup of "body soil" (I know--commercials!) in your underwear and/or clothing. Don't get me wrong here--happens to everybody. What happens is, because of sweating and sloughing off of skin and (sometimes) even some urine leaching off into the underwear, jeans etc. Over time, even with serious washing of the laundry, that stuff just builds up in that area of the clothing.

Then, even after it's freshly laundered, you can put on the clothes--and as soon as they "warm up" to normal body heat--they start smelling "funky." The only remedy? New clothes, (or) if you do decide to keep the old ones, use very hot water and at least 1/2 cup bleach and 1/2 cup baking soda in each wash.

When taking a bath, I try to really "scrub" down there, like in the bends/folds of my legs & stuff. Try not to use a bunch of powders, either. That stuff builds up and stinks, too.

The pink discharge? Wow. I'm not sure, but that'd scare me. I hope you feel better!

treehugger:
Here's the answers to your questions!

1. I get TONS of watery PINK discharge :It sounds like you have inflammation.It's blood mixed with pus from the inflammation.Inflammation is a good thing because its a sign your body is at least working to try to correct the problem.When it will correct the problem is another thing!

2.I can't stand to be in the same room with my cooze: Trust me we ALL know how you feel. Just be glad the co-workers have'nt started picking at you!

3. it's not a "fish" odor, it's something undescribable. Maybe sulfury-ammonia-ey. But, that's not it either:At one time I smelled of loud ammonia(about 2yrs. ago).Now its a faint musty smell and thats only when it sweats a lot downstairs.I changed detergent to unscented and that has helped keep the moisture down a lot but I still struggle with it from time to time.I will be so glad when this goes away completely.If it ever goes away mad.gif
I hope all goes well for you!

So I'm just looking to compare notes on BV symptoms. I'm wondering if I've got some wierd strain. The boric acid DOES help, yes. It's just that....

This comes back full blown with NO warning...

I get TONS of watery PINK discharge. Almost seems like a bit of blood. And, no it's not ovulation spotting because I've had my tubes tied so any egg breaking /fallopian tube stuff should not let blood down into my uterus.

And the odor is so strong I can smell it just working (I wear jeans) and if I move a lot or squat, damn, I can't stand to be in the same room with my cooze. Which really sucks. But it's not a "fish" odor, it's something undescribable. Maybe sulfury-ammonia-ey. But, that's not it either.

I know it's a common smell though because I've smelled it in other women.

And I've been diagnosed with typical BV. I smell the "fish" when I pee, but the other odor the rest of the time.

Yuck. I'm glad for boric acid. It generally only takes one dose and all the symptoms go away for me. Until the next time.... (sigh)

I'm using Boric Acid, which you can find at Walmart, and Double 00 Geletan caps. If you have full blown B.V., which means, the smell is horrible during sex, or when you wash, or you can smell it sitting at work, start with 2 capsules the first night, then 1 a night for about a week. Then go to 1 every other day. AND ALWAYS RIGHT AFTER SEX. For some reason, it kills all the bugs after sex.

I have to be on it forever. I think. Cause I tested it, and went off for a week, and it came back full blown, AND I HAD NO SEX!! So, whatever I'm doing in my everyday life is effecting it, ie. smoking, coffee, lack of sleep, stress from work, who knows, is causing it to stay. One day, I will go off those, but for now, I'm not ready.

I use to do the acidophilus pills, by mouth, and I stopped. I don't know why I stopped, so I think I'll go back on those. They really didn't do much for me, but, I don't think it's hurting me either.

Anyways, That's my story and....I'm stickin to it!!
