Neverending: BV (used to be termed Gardnerella) started for me when I was 24; a year after my son was born and I'm now 41...yes 17 years ago. Fortunately, a lot of women get it maybe once and it clears up and it doesn't recurr...then there's us. Doctors just don't know what to do....they have a few medicines at their disposal and maybe some good ideas on how to "maintain a healthy vaginal flora". We are left to research and find out what works for each of us, and what works for one woman, may not work for another. BV also makes your vagina more suseptible to vaginal tears durng sex and that's what I'm dealing with right now. We don't get BV from our partners. It may be caused by sexual intercourse....friction of the vaginal walls...introduction of semenal fluid into the vagina....products such as soaps, detergents, the spermicide on condoms....these things alter the vaginal PH....the list goes on. Sassy said she was a virgin when the BV started so for everyone the cause may be different.
TO ALL: Have a great day!

Hey ladies,
I just stumbled upon this thread yesterday. It took me a few hours to get through the archives and catch up. I am in complete disbelief of the amount of you that has "my problem". I truly thought I was alone and there was something wrong with me. Of course I couldn't get any answers from the qualified medical world. So I am both shocked and relived that there is a forum that I can discuss and learn from.
I am 31 and have suffered from reoccurring BV since I was about 17. I thought I was immune from both Flagyl and metro-gel. I have graduated passed the point of frustration. But thanks to your sisterhood and comradery, I went out to Wal-Mart & GNC today and armed myself with about $60 worth of TTO, Acidophilus, Biotin, Vitamin C, garlic supps and complex B's! I think I am ready for a new battle. I know different treatments work for each of us differently, but I am going to try some of your methods/remedies and see if I can get any results. Pray for me! The worse that could happen, me going back to Planned P'hood for the gizillionth time.
I had obtained a product called Lindamil (from Africa) that is Benzalkonium Chloride based. It was a refreshing experience for my kitten (almost like Listerine for the Kat) but I have been out for about a year and cannot find that product ANYWHERE in the U.S.
So, I have a question that doesn't look like it has been touched on, has anyone douched with Zonite, Trichotine or any other (BenzChld) based products? If so, what were your thought and/or results?
Thanks to all of you for sharing your experiences.
