I didn't join this board for this shit throwing bullshit. I joined it for people like Sassy, pianogirl, neverending, sciongal and LORI.
Thanks Jewels. I appreciate you, too.
But I'd like to address a few things that were said today:#1

I don't think it's a good idea to keep sticking crap up your twat...yeast can grow at an acidic level of 2.5 through basic 7.5. Your gonna be shit out of luck when the bacteria and yeast become resistant to your short term solution. But that's just my opinion.
I agree with the underlined statement. I've stated my reservations about vaginal-flagyl before, but no one should be using any prescriptions drugs in ways that it's not designed for
. It's dangerous! You would think the fact that you get a raging yeast infection from doing it just twice in a row would tell you that something is not right.
It's fine that you've chosen to do it - it's your body. But Jewels, don't be saying stuff like this:

If you have true, re-occuring B.V., I hate to be the barrier of bad news, but the Flagyl, orally, won't work. It will VERY temporarily, but you will get a yeast infection, and your B.V. will return.
Why are you telling people that oral-flagyl will not work? Are you a doctor? You've admitted yourself that sticking flagyl in your vagina is only a temporary solution too, and can cause yeast infections, and that there are risks!!!
QUOTE(jewelscando @ May 21 2007, 07:41 PM)
So...The solutions are here girls, Flagyl Vaginally, Estroil, and maybe 1 or two others. All these other remedies you all are trying, are not going to work, IN THE LONG RUN. AND THAT'S JUST MY OPPINION!!!!
Yeah, it's just your opinion. But you still shouldn't make these sweeping statements about what will or won't work for others. Besides, the site that you cited as recommending vaginal-flagyl - keep in mind that when they say "vaginal tablet" they are talking about a suppository that is designed for vaginal use, and only available in Canada
. They are not talking about tablets for oral use!
So please stop giving wrong information, and pushing methods that are potentionally dangerous. I think it's good to share your experience - but when you say stuff like this, you are pushing
them on others and making false claims. Stop it.#2Arj75
, I appreciate that you spoke out about Jewels and her pushing vaginal-flagyl - I already stated my reservations about it, but I have a real problem with her telling others that it's one of the only solutions
However, I think your discussions about BV is frankly ... a little bit out there. It's good to be sanitary and consider other theories, but you're all over the place.#3

STAY AWAY FROM CLINDESSE AND OTHER CLINDAMYCIN CREAMS. I firmly believe they are too strong and may cause damage to some of the nerves.
Once again, everyone needs to stop making these hysterial, unsubstantiated statements! I've already said my piece on the CLINDAMYCIN hysteria, but I guess I need to repeat it.
- ALL pharmaceutical drugs have a long list of contraindications of the small possibility of horrible shit that can happen - liver damage, kidney failure, jaundice, paralysis ... Did you know Flagyl gives cancer to lab mice! It's true, that's what the literature says. But I was afraid to mention it because I thought Morphia would have another conniption fit.
- Not to mention, ALL antibiotics (and every drug, really) creates resistance with mis-use. This doesn't mean you should never use them, it just means that you shouldn't use it unless you know you have a bacterial infection. And you should use them properly - that's why every doctor tells you you need to take ALL your antibiotics! Taking only one or two here and there to relieve symptoms creates resistant strains of bacteria!!! ***This is another reason why you should not be sticking this into your vagina for one or two nights every few months as Jewelscando suggests!
The lesson is? This is why you need a doctor prescribing this stuff for you
! So they can confirm the bacterial infection, and so they can evaluate your body/history to see if you're at risk for any of the side effects before prescribing it to you. I know some have advocated ordering stuff online without prescriptions, but I am strongly against that.
So, to sum up:
- No, the solutions do NOT include - sticking an unprescribed flagyl tablet up your twat. No! Just ... NO. And Jewels
, please don't tell people that an oral medication taken orally
is not going to work for them! The fact that it doesn't work for you doesn't mean it doesn't work for others.
I know many of us have been screwed over by doctors so we don't trust them. I know we are all desperate and willing to try anything. But I don't think we all should resort to sticking anything and everything into our coochies and seeing what happens. The cure can be worse than the disease! If some of you want to, go right ahead, but do not tell others that they should do it, too -Because it's one of the only solutions? -Because nothing else will work? Stop that, seriously!
, you're all over the place. IMHO, this deathly fear of yeast is a bit of a scam cooked up by holistic natural-cure crackpots wanting to sell you voodoo pills made of grass and rabbit-poo. Okay, I'm exaggerating - I'm actually very into homeopathic solutions. But I think you're grasping at every piece of research you encounter and making it into something it's not. Healthy skepticism is a good thing.
And telling Morphia that clindamycin is "made by the devil" (that was you, right?) Yeah, you've exaggerated a little too much. Look at the monster you've created.
, you shouldn't use clindamycin if you have concerns about it. But stop telling people it's going to give them nerve damage, just because you "firmly believe" it.
Okay, I'm done with the rant. Stop the madness, please.
