Hi all! i am a *newbie* here with a question, and let me warn you it may be the dumbest question you have ever heard!! part of that is because i go to the gyno as little as humanly possible (i know its not good but i hate it!) okay now...

**i have never had any problems with *smell* until i started having sex with my husband, now all of a sudden i have this horrible fishy smell and itch, and very very rarely i get dishcharge (not often but it happens). i was reading through the threa and i saw a lot of women had success with boric acid, but part of me (i will admit, the smarter part of me) says to go see my gyno to make sure nothing serious is going on. ANYWAYS here is the dumb part....before you were diagnosed with BV and all you had was the symptom of the *smell* when you called to make your gyno appt and they asked for the reason of the appt...what did you say? i mean i dont really want to say to some stranger on the phone well i smell like fish *lol* ..........

Thanks. if i put one in and used a tampon would the tampon just absorb all the medicine? seems like a lot of it just comes out anyways.


sorry i forgot to answer that. i only used a tampon while on yeast arrest once or twice and it was when i had to because i was going to the beach. so if i were you i would just try to not use them, again call your doctor and ask cause i never asked anyone (like i never called the company or anything.) also, the white discharge you have is most likely the boric acid coming out. is it watery? then it's the boric acid...

HEY Neverending

You have PCOS... I was check for that due to periodic abdomminal pain that feels like a midget is sitting on my lower stomach.... I have hemorraghic cysct and I have been trying to find some correlation to cyst down there and BV.....
Neverending how log have you had PCOS


I have a very mild case(hair growth, little overweight, very little acne) of pcos now. I believe I've had it for many years now but there is no way of knowing when it really started. In Jan/2007 I had a cyst rupture. Talk about PAINFUL! I blame birth control for this because before that, I've never had any problems whatsoever. As soon as I stopped popping the pill BAM severe weight gain, severe discharge, severe acne, and moderate hair growth. After I used the Estroil I noticed that my weight decreased, my acne started clearing up, less hair growth and no discharge.Go figure! I'm still confused as to why the estroil helped? I just started Acupunture yesturday and I heard if you have a mild case you have a better chance of getting rid of pcos. Oh, and yes I also believe all this stuff correlates with each other. Many of us on the board have the same symptoms (IBS, PCOS, DISCHARGE, DEPRESSION,ANXIETY,PID,ETC). If you find any good articles send them my way.

I need some help from someone(anitsirhc or otherwise). I was put on 600 mg boric acid about a month ago. It looks to be almost the same thing as yeast arrest, without the other two things in it. My doctor has me taking it every OTHER night for two months. instead of what yeast arrest says which is like 2 times a day for 3-7 days or 10-14 days for resistance cases. It seems to be keeping my b.v. at bay but not kicking it out of there. my discharge is white but not clumpy, and it has a hint of bv smell. do you think i should do the acid every night? I've also had a few times that i missed a night and continued the next night. could inconsistency be doing this? I'm really new to all treatments. does everyone here have BV from being pregnant?( I know 1 in 4 get bv from pregnancy) I've never been pregnant I just started having problems after having sex only one time. sad.gif

I also wanted to know, if you start your period when taking the suppository do you wear a pad or wear a tampon anyways?


i'm not sure. the yeast arrest is 600 mg of boric acid also, but i only took it for a month. so maybe you're taking it less often but over a longer period of time? i would call your doctor and tell him/her that you don't feel like it's completely going away. also, inconsistency can definitely affect your results. and no not everyone has bv from being pregnant. i have never been pregnant and i'm sure a lot of other women on here haven't been pregnant either. sorry i didn't really help. good luck!!!

by the way, the last yeast arrest i put in was tuesday night and today i'm still bv free smile.gif

so i went to the doctor today, switched back to ortho tri-cyclen lo. wanna know what happened?? when i went to planned parenthood to pick up my new prescription for bc they put ortho tri-cyclen and forgot to put the "lo" so when i brought it to the pharmacy they just filled it with the "generic" brand of ortho tri-cyclen which is trinessa which is HORRIBLE! if you ever get TriNessa instead of ortho tri-cyclen... do not take it. tell them you want the brand name, not the generic. it was so bad. if you search TriNessa online you'll find numerous pages of women complaining about really bad side effects. so yeah, i was pissed that the doctor gave me the wrong bc and that the pharmacy decided to give me the generic brand without asking.

ANYWAY.... i had them check me for bv. and it came back NEGATIVE!! i'm a little skeptical though.. cause i'm spotting a little bit, so she said the results might not be accurate, but wouldn't blood make it seem more like i have bv not like i don't have it even if i do? and also, i put a yeast arrest in tuesday night so could that change anything? i don't feel like i have bv right now. i'm not smelling and i'm just spotting, no discharge. who the hell knows. i feel good right now so that's good right? ok enough blabbering, time for food. hope you all have a good friday!!! laugh.gif

Hey everyone,
I'm out of town and on a horrible computer. I told you all that I got a book about hormones...one I also just got, while it has a dumbass title..it has some great information in it. The first step the treatment of any health issue is education. Of course we already know that. It's why some of us are here. The books called " It's my ovaries stupid! (i said dumb title) lol. By Elizabeth Lee Vliet MD

It has a lot of helpful information. How to test for problems,what causes them, how to prevent..blah blah blah

Neverending, it has a good chapter about one of your conditions too. PCOS...

It will at least help to have some facts to slap back to Dr. Quack at least!

Have a good weekend you all, I will try to get the side effects of all those wonderful antibotics posted soon, but I don't have time right now!

Yeah, you say you did it, but you *still* read what I write and harass me anyway. So, what's the point?

AFTER you said you blocked me, you attacked me AGAIN. *I* ignored you for peace's sake. But you insist on keeping this fight going. Why? Maybe instead of announcing that you're ignoring me, and then NOT ignoring me ... why not just ... ignore me?

And for the record, this group was full of bitching and fighting long before I started posting. Jewels has been abusing newbies and harassing other posters since day one of this thread. (How do I know that? Because I read this entire thread. Why? Because that's what Jewels tells newbies to do when she beats up on them, so they don't ask the same questions over again. I'm just following her "advice.")

Jewels is just pissed off because there is someone who won't kiss her ass or run away after she bullies them. Whatever, that's her deal. I'm not here to have battle royales about ego all day. But if you keep baiting me, Christina ... well, you can't expect me to just sit and take your shit.

You're the one who started this whole fight, Christina. I guess it makes sense that you would keep on stirring the shit.

Oh no, I meant to insult just you and Jewels.
[/quote]

Let me guess...you didn't say that? I haven't posted on here for awhile. Why do you need to insult me?? Because I found something that worked for me?? So, I'm wrong?? I'm using the Flagyl under a doctors knowledge, who told me it was ok, and I'm wrong? What is wrong with you Lori?? ABSOLUTELY AMAZING THAT YOU WOULD KNOW THAT LADIES NAME WHEN..........................YOU WEREN'T HERE WHEN IT HAPPENED....BUT LET ME GUESS....YOU'VE READ EVERY PAGE SINCE THE END OF TIME...CAUSE YOU HAVE NO LIFE??? OR....IS B.V. YOUR LIFE?? ARE YOU A DOCTOR?? ARE YOU DOING A STUDY?? WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND HAS THE TIME TO READ BACK FROM WELL OVER A YEAR AGO?? Hmmm..

Anyways....I really don't care about all of this...I care about my friends that I have made on here...and since you have come to the board Lori...you have upset not only me, but just about everyone on here....

FOR THE RECORD.....THERE IS NO CURE FOR RE-OCCURING B.V. There is medication that you can take....BUT IT IS NOT A CURE FOR RE-OCCURING.....Get your shit straight...if it was a cure...WE WOULDN'T BE HERE TODAY!!! SOMETHING THAT CURES SOMETHING...DOESN'T KEEP RE-OCCURING. If I have Strep throat...and I take Penicillin...it cures it...it's gone...it doesn't keep coming back, month after month after month...that my dear is a cure...If your one of the lucky woman in the world who get's it one time..and the meds work...YES THAT'S A CURE....BUT THAT IS DIFFERENT THEN WHAT MOST OF US ON HERE HAVE WHICH IS RE-OCCURING!!!!

FROM WEB MD:

Bacterial Vaginosis - Topic Overview
Bacterial vaginosis causes specific symptoms that can be different from two other common types of vaginal infections, vaginal yeast infection and trichomoniasis. It is possible to have more than one type of vaginal infection at the same time. For more information on the other types, see the topics Vaginal Yeast Infections and Trichomoniasis

What is bacterial vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis is a change in the balance of bacteria that are normally present in the vagina, which can cause bothersome symptoms. It is the most common cause of vaginal symptoms in women of childbearing age.

Bacterial vaginosis is sometimes linked to hormonal changes; it is more common after menstruation. Nearly 1 in 4 pregnant women are diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis....THERE YOU GO NEVER ENDING!!!

From this website: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacterial_vaginosis

In a randomized controlled trial,[9] researchers found the efficacy of 0.75% metronidazole vaginal gel in treating bacterial vaginosis (cure rate 70.7%) was equivalent to that of standard oral metronidazole treatment (cure rate 71%). Treatment with vaginal metronidazole gel was associated with fewer gastrointestinal complaints

http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/std/bacterial_vaginosis.htm

Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) can be difficult to cure using either conventional or alternative treatments

YOUR NOT THE ONLY PERSON WHO DOES RESEARCH LORI. WE ARE ALL HERE TO HELP EACH OTHER. WHY CAN'T YOU JUST PM PEOPLE IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY???? NOBODY DIED AND MADE YOU QUEEN MOTHER BOARD..NOBODY HAS ASKED YOU TO PROTECT THEM FROM MAKING A WRONG MOVE, OR PROTECT THEM FROM STICKING SOMETHING UP THERE VAGINAS. THIS IS A MESSAGE BOARD...HERE TO GIVE EACH OTHER SUPPORT...NOT TO HAVE TO BE TORN DOWN BY YOU EVERYTIME SOMEONE SAYS SOMETHING. DO YOU NOT THINK ANY OF US ARE SMART ENOUGH IN HERE TO DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE WE TRY SOMETHING???????

THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME I REPLY TO YOU LORI, REGARDLESS OF YOUR NEXT COMEBACK...BUT...AS WE ALL KNOW...MS. LORI HAS TO HAVE THE LAST WORD....EITHER WAY...YOU MEAN NOTHING TO ME, JUST AS I MEAN NOTHING TO YOU....EVENTUALLY...YOU WILL GO AWAY...BECAUSE THE LADIES ON HERE WILL ALL GET SMART AND BLOCK YOU.... LIKE I AN RIGHT NOW...

Fuck you Lori...YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO SAY SHIT ABOUT ME, OR BRING UP MY NAME. I have stayed away, like I said I would...and you're still fucking bad mouthing me.

I NEVER INSISTED ANYONE FOLLOW MY LEAD, NOR DID NEVERENDING OR PIANO GIRL. FLAGYL VAGINALLY WORKED FOR ME BITCH!!! DO YOU HAVE ANY CLUE WHAT A RELIEF THAT IS????

OF COURSE NOT...BECAUSE YOU ARE A FAKE LORI...YOU DO NOT SUFFER FROM B.V. IF YOU DID...AND YOU HAD TRUE B.V....YOU WOULD BE RIGHT THERE WITH US STICKING EVERYTHING FROM A TO Z UP YOUR SNATCH TRYING TO GET RID OF THE SHIT. YOU OBVIOUSLY DON'T HAVE A SEX LIFE, THEREFORE YOU COULD CARE LESS WHAT YOUR SNATCH SMELLS LIKE...

Lori won't go away guys...she's probably being paid by someone...or she's a wanta be doctor looking for patients...and this is the only way she can get them.


THIS IS WHY I'M NO LONGER HERE...IT WENT FROM "BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS -- OR -- EMBARRASSING BAD SMELL....TO "LORI'S BLOG...JUST CLICK UNDER HER SIGNATURE"....
