For a recurring mixed BV and Candida infection, I used a boric acid capsule vaginally at bedtime for about 10 nights, then switched to every other night for another week, then twice a week for about a month. On alternate nights, I used estrogen cream (prescription Estrace). It finally went away. I still use a tea tree oil suppository occasionally as a preventive, use estrogen cream several times a week, and have been using FemDophilus (and its previous form, Ombe) for 2 1/2 years now. No sign of problems, thank the Lord!

Hi everyone its day #3 of my treatment which is flagyl twice a day and boric acid supp inserted for 7 days then twice a week for three weeks. How do I feel so far?

Smelly, drippy from the boric acid supp, and disgusted that I dont see any sign of relief yet. How long will it take for the boric acid to kill the bacteria anyone please? Tell me your personal experience with the boric acid thankyou


I think the flagyl kills off everything. The doctor gave me two week of flagyl (metro) and i use it with estroil and femdo didn't work no sign of change. I use the messy cream the doctor gave me nothing!! I feel like doctor can't do nothing for me but make me mad that i waste 4 dollars in transportation to hear them say everything is fine and tell me i need to see a counselors yes they did tell me that!!

I don't use regular soap. I use baby bath gel-type stuff & take showers only. I don't overdo the sugar consumption, but I do eat a little every day, like 10-20 grams' worth, usually after or with meals to slow the glucose surge. I don't still use boric acid, but my routine now is a blob of estrogen cream inserted from the end of a q-tip every other day. On the alternate days, I insert a blob of SYLK pH -balanced (4.5) lubricant. Once a month, I insert a piece of a tea tree oil suppository http://www.herbalremedies.com/tea-tree-oil...positories.html
for good measure.

I don't get hot flashes very often; just from time to time.

I have purchased Yeast Arrest here:

Thanks Maggie for your responding back to me I really appreciate it alot. Your info is very helpful. It's interesting that you mention you are using estrogen. When neverending was on the blog she told me that she cure herself with estrogen prescribed from the doctor and she also use this that was very helpfully for her http://www.helenpensanti.com/prodinfo.asp?number=EVS1 which I bought and it took away my hot flashes and calm the smell down a lil. Im trying to get estrogen prescibed to me by the doctor but i gotta go through alot bs before i can get it. Thanks Maggie so much for the info it probably will work me and others on bust lounge. SOON WE ALL DON'T HAVE TO COME BACK TO LOUNGE BCUZ WE ALL GOING BE CURE AND NO MORE RECURRENCE!!!! IF WE DO COME BACK TO THE LOUNGE IS TO LAUGH ABOUT HOW WE DEFEAT BV AND THE PEOPLE WHO MADE FUN OF US TRYING BE OUR FRIENDS.

You shouldn't even call yourself that!!! Forget thoses stupid insensitive jerks if they too immature to handle your situation then they not right for you. People can be so mean sometimes but you know what goes around comes back around.
Have you try fem dophilus?
Like everyone on this board uses that to help their vagina to get healthy.
Antonia says that she maintain her ph level 4 or 4.5 and that help her odor by doing this:

Supplies - 800mcg Folic Acid (grocery store),
Sliquid Feminine Wash unscented (drugstore.com),
ph test strips 1-14 (got these at a local children's science museum gift shop),
Astrogide gel (Walgreens), 10ml medicine syringe (local pharmacy) this is a oral medicine syringe and does not have a needle

*Daily: 800mcg supplement of Folic Acid
*Daily: the last thing I do in the shower, I wash my vulva with Sliquid Feminine Wash, unscented (ph of 4) and rinse with water
*After period and as needed: I check my ph by putting a litmus paper inside my vagina. If it reads anything higher than 4, then I do a ph treatment
*After sex: stand up afterward to dump out semen (ph 7-8). (Condoms are probably the best bet, but my bf and I are monogamous and I use an IUD, pulling out would be a second but he and I are really good at and enjoy coming at the same time) followed by ph treatment
*ph treatment - fill a baby oral medicine syringe with 2ml of Astroglide gel (ph of 4), insert and dispense into vagina. I always do this after sex and any time vaginal ph is higher than 4.

So i'm thinking if i get my ph level on track and uses the sliquid feminine wash (unscented)then i'm going add to the mix MCF10 SAY TO ME HERE IT GOES:

I don't want to get into a "my vagina is healthier than yours" contest. Really. But I've been BV-free, according to my OB/GYN doctor and my nose, since 2/2007. (2 year anniversary! Woo hoo!)

And I do nothing. NOTHING.

Well, not exactly nothing. Here are the things that I do.

- normal hygiene stuff
- try to exercise and eat healthy (the operative word is "try")
- stick something in it or on it once a month when it bleeds

Basically this is stuff that everyone should be doing anyway, at all times. Other than that, nothing else. Except enjoy sex without worries and wear whatever the hell I want. The only real precaution that I take is to keep a bottle of Fem-D in my fridge just in case I ever need to take antibiotics.

I don't think maintenance is necessary if your vagina is back in balance. Yes, sometimes the pH is going to go up (sex, periods, etc.) and sometimes it might be exposed to bacteria (I don't live in an antiseptic bubble). A healthy vagina should bounce back and be able to defend itself.

And I think that's how we all should be. I don't agree that everyone needs to stick something in there every day, lubricant or otherwise. Your vagina is supposed to be self-cleaning, so routine cleaning of the outside with a gentle cleanser should be all that you should need.

[Of course, I'm talking about if BV is your problem, and nothing else. Obviously, if you have other problems, than there are other things that you may need to do to keep yourself healthy. But if BV is your only problem, and you regained the balance of your vaginal flora, you really should not need to do daily maintenance. In my humble opinion, that is.]

The only daily maintenance that I do is my folic acid supplement, which is a great healthy thing to do anyway, I don't do anything on a daily basis, really, other than cleaning with a gentle cleanser, being aware of subtle changes and maybe ph test strip.

Doing nothing is great IF you don't have BV and haven't had it for two years. BUT if you are like those of us who have ongoing or chronic BV, then we get BV, clear it (if we're lucky) and then it comes back, usually in a few days/weeks.

If I do nothing, then I have my period, then the day after my period I start to notice more wetness than normal, then after a few days the smell starts. The smell will get stronger and stronger. If I continue to do nothing, it seems to clear itself, the smell subsides usually right before my period, repeat - repeat - repeat. If I do nothing, get BV, treat with Boric, then the next month I get it again, repeat - repeat - repeat.

I only do the ph treatment if my ph is off - yes, my vagina flora should self-balance, but has not for a long time. It is my hope that doing this prevention will keep me from getting and treating bv, which in turn will help repair my self-balance. I think that over time I will have to do less and less of these ph treatments.

All vaginas are different, some people can self-balance so well that they don't even get yeast infections after taking antibiotics. My vaginal flora is very sensitive, and I am happy to find a method to help it stay balanced.

First of all, I disagree that anyone needs to do "pH treatments." It took me a while to figure this out, but - high pH is a symptom, not a cause of BV. Apparently, this is a very difficult principle to get people to understand.

It's the good bacteria that keeps your pH low. Lowering the pH by "acidifying" your vagina with solutions, creams, gels, etc.? Doesn't work. That's why everyone keeps needing to re-apply it, over and over again.

And if you keep needing to do "treatments" every month? That means your vagina is out of balance, you've just managed to temporarily quell the symptoms.

Here's the thing - if my vagina smells bad? I welcome it. I don't want to stick things in there just to kill the smell off. That's my body's way of telling me that it's out of balance, and I want to pay attention to that. And it's been proven over and over again that topical products just don't work on a long-term basis.

Bacteria are living organisms. If the good bacteria are living inside you in dominant numbers, it should stay that way until external forces disturb it. (Infection, antibiotics, etc.)

I've had BV for a long time, for many years. And that's exactly how I felt - that I was just "sensitive." I got BV so easily, and yeast infections so easily, too. (like clockwork, everytime I took antibiotics, which was a lot, due to the BV. VICIOUS CYCLE. I've been through it, believe me.)

So it's not that I have some bionic vagina that "self-balances" so well. I just finally figured out how to replace the good bacteria, and focused on that.

I really think it's a good idea to focus on that, and not on anything else, like topical gels and stuff. Because if you do that, it's hard to tell what's working. And you're throwing off your body's natural healing process.
horror_movie
Lori I totally understand where you coming from with putting too much stuff up there. It can throw off our vagina natural healing. I agree with antonia also not all vagina's work the same way!! three different people told me how they got cure and it was all diffrent procedures to lead to their victory no recurrence. BV DON'T ONLY AFFECT YOU PHYSICALLY BUT MORE MENTALLY. I WOULDN'T MIND HAVING BV WITHOUT A SMELL SO I CAN TAKE CARE OF IT ON THE LOW LOW INSTEAD OF EVERYONE ELSE KNOWING I HAVE A VAGINALLY PROBLEM THAT HURT. IT'S HARD TO EXPLAIN TO INGORANT PEOPLE NOWDAYS THAT YOU HAVE BV WITHOUT HAVING YOUR BUSINESS SPREAD LIKE HOT CAKES. I LIVE IN NY AND SOME PEOPLE OUT HERE IS COLD HEARTED B****S. ANOTHER THING THAT SCARES US THE MOST IS WHEN YOU HEAR THAT SOME OF THE LADIES ON HERE HAD IT OVER 15 YEARS. I DON'T WANT THAT AT ALL IT BEEN 6 MONTHS FOR ME. SO WHEN YOU TELL OTHERS THAT YOUR BV FREE WE WANT TO KNOW WHAT/HOW DID YOU GET TO THAT POINT? I'M SURE YOU WASN'T JUST DOING NOTHING BEFORE YOU HAVE GOTTEN CURE.

1)DID YOU CHANGE YOUR DIET?

2)DO YOU STILL USE FEMDO ?

3)DO YOU SHOWER WITH REGULAR SOAP?

4)DID YOU USE ANTIBOTICS FROM THE DOCTOR AND GOTTEN CURE?(WHAT KIND OF ANTIBOTICS)

5)BEFORE YOU GOTTEN CURE DID YOU EVER HAVE HOTFLASHES?

EXPLAIN TO ME BREAK IT DOWN ON YOUR STEPS TO VICTORY!!!!!!!

LOL Lori's bionic vagina : )

oops, I forgot to mention that I eat Nancy's plain yogurt almost daily. I'll edit my post to show that important detail.

I completely agree(d) with you. For years all I did was probiotics, in the form of supplements as well as eating yogurt, because I prefer a completely natural approach.

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough for me.

I haven't given up on it, in the yogurt form, because I know it helps my vag as well as digestive system.

So, you can disagree that anyone needs to do ph treatments, but for me, it works. Maybe not as a true prevention method, but it stops the imbalance before BV starts.

I will report back on the long-term. As I said before, my hopes are that stopping BV and therefore the Boric Acid, will help my body balance on it's own, my hopes are that I will have to do the ph treatment less and less ... Eventually just eating yogurt everyday and that being enough.

Hi Antonia,

I used to believe regular yogurt containing lactobacillius acidophilus was good for preventing and maintaining vaginal health, until I further researched it, and realized that regular lactobacillius acidophilus only colonizes the intestinal tract and doesn't normally colonize the vaginal/urogenital tract. Below is a quote from WebMD pertaining to my statement.

"For decades, some women have used Lactobacillus acidophilus in yogurt or supplements to treat bacterial vaginosis. But experts now know that dairy lactobacillus is not the kind that normally lives in the vagina. This is why dairy lactobacillus does not work for bacterial vaginosis. But researchers have found that two different types of lactobacillus-L. crispatus and L. jensenii-are most commonly found in a healthy vaginal environment. Research is now focusing on using these types of lactobacilli in capsules."

Thanks Sweat ... You're right and I had seen that before, but forgotten ... No wonder it works for GI stuff, but not so helpful for vag flora. I still take supplements when needed, i.e. during antibiotic treatment ...

Hey all!!

I'm happy to say I haven't posted here in almost a year!! I am BV free and think it's permanent!

My BV problems ONLY started when I went on low dose birth control pills - literally the same week. I was on Yaz and Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo for about a year with BV problems. I switched to Ortho Tri Cyclen regular and feel very NORMAL.

I know some people don't think it has anything to do with hormones, but for me, it did. It started and stopped when I started and stopped low dose birth controls pills.

I also used FemD during my low dose BC pills days and DO think that helped.

However, regular BC pills are the permanent fix for me.

Thanks! Good Luck!

Hello ladies, I've never been in here and I don't even know if I have BV but I do have an embarrassing bad smell! It's gotten to the point where I don't even want my boyfriend to go near my cunt. Will a doctor definitely be able to diagnose this properly?
whateverfitsyou
hello,
I haven't been on this website in a while because my BV(or whatever it was) has stopped. I used one of the members advice and tried the 1/2 water,1/2 peroxide douche. However, lately I've been having a slight odor,it's not horrible but as the discharge absorbs in my panties it smells,on a scale from one to ten(one being the least,ten being the worst)...i'll give it a 3 1/2. Furthermore, the discharge isn't discolored. The discharge is a normal color but when it starts to set in my panties it turns to this blackish color. It takes about five to eight hours for the discharge to change to the blackish color. Does anyone know what this could possibly be? and what's the cause? Thank u in advance!!

Hello everyone, I have been reading the posts for months and I can relate to many of the stories that i have heard, I believe My BV started with the use of Birth Control, I have not found a cure yet, but I am still trying, the last thing that I have tried was the estroil supp., which hasn't worked completely for me, I was thinking about getting on a different type of BC to get my hormones back on track b/c i too believe that my issue is related to hormons. I am 22 and sometimes it feels like i'm have hot flashes (LOL), but my main reason for the post is b/c i read some post when people were saying that they usually smelled like fish when they ate fish or other foods and I just wanted to let them know that they should really look into something called TMAU(just google it).Thanks everyone...I hope we all find our cures

Hey-o,
Your theory about birth control causing your bacterial vaginosis is likely true. After I've read some health articles on birth control and it's effects, it's safe to say taking birth control could possibly cause bacterial vaginosis or other forms of vaginitis. Apparently, the birth control that is placed into the vagina is more likely to cause a vaginal infection of some sort. The articles I read are listed below:
    1. eMedicine - Vaginal Infections
    2. Women's Health - Bacterial Vaginosis - Frequently Ask Questions
    3. FDA - Birth Control Guide
    4. MayoClinic - Birth Control Guide (Very good source, great information)

I noticed that you mentioned something like your having "hot flashes," a woman told me that she felt as if she had hot air coming out of her vagina, it's totally normal. It's just a compression of air and moisture. This can be bad if you have a vaginal infection, after all, yeast and bacteria thrive in warm moist conditions. This is also why I suggest that women let the vagina "breathe," by going without panties/undergarments when ever possible, it seems to help those experiencing discomfort.

Toodles,

If you have BV, is the smell constant? Or is it just on certain days? Because some days I don't smell so bad. I'm still going to have to ask a doctor though.

no depends on the person however for most people the smell is always there, especially when your having intercourse.

Ive had BV for 4 years and as people have said it doesnt go away. it contiuously comes back. sometimes not as often but hey its still there. Doctors like what has been mentioned are not really educated about B.V. and tend to turn a blind eye to it because they consider it like your commen cold or sickness nothing life threatning or of any interest unless they find a break through product that will cure it for good and help them make millions. THIS BV SHIT has no frikkin sense of time it always comes when you go to have sex or your smell it after. I make a joke and call it a cock blocker. but i find my boyfriend of 3 years i never experience it with yet if i find a new partner (Post break up) it comes about. some say it reacts differently to NEW people. yet im back with my Ex and havent had it in months. THAN again i dont know if its that or the fact that even if i dont have it i take the pill for 2 days in a month. just in case. THANK GOD for CANADA and free health care and presciptions because i could imagine how much it costs those who have to pay or that tries to find another solution. Anywhoo. i been doing some internet research and i found a book that "Claims it can cure it for good" now im a cynic and very skeptical so i will be digging into this but it doesnt hurt to try and the woman had the same problems as us and has done alot of research and she has it spot on. havent got the book but i will be doing so today. just wanted yto leave this link her for others to look because i know how much of a pain in the ass this shit is and how embarassing so im gonna try to find ways to help others too. and after i try any methods and they work unlike other successful ppl who forget to share it with other sufferrers i most definitely will share my success story with others IF IT WORKS


CHECK THIS WEBSITE www.bvcures.com and see what u think. doesnt hurt to try

Hey Antonia,
I'm curious, have you been taking the yogurt or any probiotic supplements vaginally?


No, just eating it.

In the past I have taken it vaginally, but the probiotic supplements worked better and less messy, but also more expensive.

I think this is true. I think my BV started when I started hooking up with my ex. I think my hoohah was taking care of me! by getting BV it wanted to tell me that that boy was a bad one wink.gif
It stopped after I left him (I also took some flagyl, but weirdly enough it def stopped when I stopped having sex with him). Havent had it since then, not even with my new bf.
As a side note, my ex used to smoke a LOT, LOT of weed. I wonder if that's what triggered it..hmmm.

I feel really concerned about your health. From what I know, you have a hemorrhoid, bacterial vaginosis, and now, persistent bleeding from your vagina. You need to go to an emergency room. I'm afraid you may have something more serious like pelvic inflammatory disease. Three of the symptoms of PID are irregular menstrual bleeding, abdominal pain and a foul odorous discharge.

Hello Ladies! I have spent the last 3 days reading all 230 pages and have learned more than I could've possibly imagine! I feel like I know you all and to see ladies like Sassy & Jewels & Neverending still on here to support those of us that haven't yet beaten this horrific battle brings tears to my eyes. I hope that one day I can say that I am NORMAL again and I will continue to do what I can to enlighten the ones that are still fighting for relief. Anyhoo.. I have been dealing with chronic vaginal infections including BV, yeast, & strep for almost a year now. I, like many on here, have been on every antibiotic and antifungal medicine known to man with NO cure. But, after reading all that I have I am starting the FemD and estrogen today! I am currently not taking any antibiotic because Im waiting for my culture to come back to see what I have this time!!!! Woo Hoo! But my dr read all that I have researched and agreed that the estrogen may help me because I have had a hysterectomy although I do still have an ovary. I will keep you all posted how it goes. But just a little about me... Im 29 years old, have 2 children, in a relationship for the last year and a half & live in Idaho.
Love to all~

I took your advice went to the emergency room and they did nothing!! They did a blood count came back normal.
They check to see how I was bleeding no inflammation. They told me to go to the obgyn and see why I'm bleeding and so they can give me a
Ultrasound. I think when I do the pap smear the smell of the bv stop doctor from getting a really good look at the inside
Because they don't want to go close bcuz the smell is strong so they keep their distance and assume its nothing. I set a appointment
At the obgyn so for now I'm going to continue to bleed.


I appreciate your concern sweaty in social studies. I'm also concern about my condition and so upset that no.
body takes it serious they make it seem like this is normal. All I can do is pray that god let me see another day.

I know you feel incredibly miserable because of all of this. I practically went through hell and back while I had a simple yeast infection. I couldn't imagine having to deal with all your going through.

Your gynecologist should examine you whether you have an odor or not. If you feel like your not being heard by your gynecologist, you should seriously consider seeing someone that actually wants to help you.

This makes me think back to the time my grandmother first came to this country, she couldn't speak very good English. One day, she said that she felt a small lump in her right breast. She went to a doctor that could understand her. This doctor prescribed her coumadin, which is a blood thinner, because the she assumed my grandma had a blood clot in her breast. My grandma took the medication religiously hoping the lump would go away. It never did. By the time the lump in her breast was finally diagnosed as cancer two years later, it was too late. The cancer had already spread throughout her chest and lymph nodes. Nonetheless, she still did the treatments, her hair was falling out, she could barely control her bowel movements because the cancer had spread so quickly to her intestines. The poor woman suffered so much. I remember how she would cry out in pain and break down in tears at night, and how I picked her up from the hospital one day after her chemotherapy, the sky was grey and cloudy as if it was ready to down pour. It took her so long to get out of the car, by the time she got to the front door, it started storming. I can just picture her, slowly walking with that little cane in her hand, while it just keeps raining and raining. She was soaked by the time she got through the front door.

My grandma was a tall, healthy, well postured, happy woman, with a full head of long thick hair and smooth radiant skin. During her final stage of cancer, she was the total opposite. The cancer spread throughout her bones, making her shrink in size. Her bones got so thin, if she sneezed, she would break one. Her hair turned from black, thick and shiny, to thin, greying and patchy. Her skin was wrinkly and transparent. It was as if I was looking at a shell of a person.

After my grandma died, my family went on to prosecute the doctor that caused her death, and soon found out this doctor happened to be one of those doctors that had many malpractice lawsuits. The doctor had prescribed the wrong medication to several of her other patients.

Something as simple as a lump in the breast turned into something so much worse. And then I think of the persistent bleeding that your dealing with and I have the most tragic thoughts racing through my mind.

My grandmother was once in a similar situation as you, her doctor was quick to right her a prescription without actually helping her, and as a result of that, she died. Not only did this phony doctor prescribe her a blood thinner for a lump in her breast, she kept giving her higher doses each time it didn't work! As a result of this, she died a very painful death. sad.gif .

I'm so sorry to hear what happen to your grandma. I hope your family sue the hospital an that doctor.
It's upsetting how doctor don't take the time to listen to their patients instead of thinking they don't know their bodies. I've been telling my doctor severely times about my hot flashes and they brush it off like I'm lyingand do another blood test. when i talk about my bv they give higher dose of flagyl which never work for me. I'm going to a different obgyn this appointment and i'm going get a full body examination hemorrhoids, bv, hotflashes,and the bleeding. GOOD LUCK TO ME!!!!

hello... i haven't been on here in a long long time. because my bv was gone. i stopped having sex for a while since i was single and it went away, so having sex is what triggers mine. recently i started having sex again and of course the bv came back. to keep it away i have been doing hydrogen peroxide douches once or twice a day and after sex. i use half water half peroxide. and i keep it in there for about 30 seconds to a minute. this keeps it away for me but i'm wondering if that is bad for you. has anyone tried this and had any problems? i have to do this every day because if i stop it comes back... right away.


also, i am taking primadophilus reuteri. i've used this before and it always helped.

Hey anitsirhc,

From what I know, hydrogen peroxide douches are bad. The douche could be spreading the infection into the cervix, causing a disease known as pelvic inflammatory disease. It's removing all of the bacteria that it comes into contact with, including the beneficial bacteria (lactobacilli) that actually keeps the vagina healthy, and hydrogen peroxide is also considered poisonous according to the National Institute of Health (click.) I don't even think hydrogen peroxide should be used in the vagina. It's used for cleaning and disinfecting cuts/scrapes as far as I know. It wasn't until I was introduced to this forum that I heard it can be used as a douche. In my opinion, douching in general will do the vagina more harm than good.

It's great that your taking a probiotic, probiotics are always a plus when it comes to preventing infections and what not. After all, the digestive tract plays a big role in your immune system. Although, I'm not too sure that the strains your taking actually colonize the vaginal tract. I'd rather not be repetitive but, if your bacterial vaginois came back, your better off just getting prescribed medication for it before you self treat.

Peace,

hi ladies. i posted here recently saying i was using hydrogen peroxide to keep mine away. well i stopped using that because i kept needing to use it more often and i felt like that couldn't be good.

since then i've been taking primadophilus reuteri, folic acid and something i found on a homeopathic website called kreosotum. so far, i don't really smell that much and my discharge isn't bad. it isn't gone completely but my boyfriend says he doesn't notice anything. i'm not sure what is working right now since i'm using all 3 at once, but i'm going to continue to use them since it's helping a lot. i'm also using calendula and washing with that. i found the kreosotum and calendua remedy on a homeopathic website.

i've been taking 2 drops of kreosotum 30c potency in a small amount of water (i drink it in one sip) 4 times a day. i got that from this website: <a href="http://www.hmedicine.com/homeopathic/dilutions/J-L/Kreosotum" target="_blank">http
://www.hmedicine.com/homeopathic/dilut.../J-L/Kreosotum
</a>


i put a few drops on my fingers of the calendula and wash with that. i got that from the same website. i got the tincture form of this. here is the link to that: http://www.hmedicine.com/homeopathic/tinct...ula_Officinalis


i only been taking one primadophilus reuteri pill a day and one folic acid (i'm not sure how many mg.) i've been doing these 4 things for about a week now and i definitely notice a huge difference, i will keep you updated in a few days on how i am doing with this.

good luck to everyone else, hope i can help maybe a little!

there are a lot of uses for kreosotum. this website lists them:

http://abchomeopathy.com/r.php/Kreos

also... if you look here it is listed as a remedy for yeast:

http://www.pccnaturalmarkets.com/health/2265000/


calendula is an antiseptic and i think you can douche with it too. it's mentioned in this article:

http://www.bacterialvaginosisrecurrent.com..._vaginosis.html

i got the remedy originally from here:

http://abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/99552/


i'm still doing this remedy. i can still smell it a little bit. my boyfriend doesn't notice anything, or says i smell normal. so i'm not sure if it's just me being crazy or if it's really there. i think it's there a little bit but nowhere near as much so whatever i'm doing is definitely working. (primadophilus reuteri, folic acid, kreosotum and calendula.) i might try douching with calendula soon to get rid of the smell completely.

i got the remedy originally from here:

http://abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/99552/
i'm still doing this remedy. i can still smell it a little bit. my boyfriend doesn't notice anything, or says i smell normal. so i'm not sure if it's just me being crazy or if it's really there. i think it's there a little bit but nowhere near as much so whatever i'm doing is definitely working. (primadophilus reuteri, folic acid, kreosotum and calendula.) i might try douching with calendula soon to get rid of the smell completely.

Have you tried an herb called golden seal root? I remember how my mother used to say how it was good for the immune system and a variety of other ailments. She grows it in her garden, so she can take it everyday. Her mother was Mojave Indian and a firm believer in natural medicine. I used to believe natural medicine was hocus pocus, until I did a little research, and found out there are some herbs that do have medicinal properties.

I hope your aware of the risk factors that come with douching. I know how stressful it is to have to deal with a vaginal odor. But even as desperate as I was, I never douched. Sometimes I think, if I had douched, the infection would've came back mellow.gif. I've noticed a lot of the women that have tried douching get reoccurring infections. Maybe you can try calendula suppositories, it's less damaging to the body.

oh, and i've taken golden seal a bunch of times. i take echinacea(sp?) with golden seal in it. i've always preferred treating anything with herbal remedies rather than antibiotics.

Did you notice any changes when you took the echinacea with the goldenseal? I remember, prior to my infection clearing up, I took a capsuled goldenseal supplement every morning before breakfast, and I could've sworn the odor and discharge was dissipating. I'm not sure if it was my mind playing tricks on me. I was also taking it with a probiotic at the time, but it was a regular acidophilus supplement, so I don't think that could've made that much of a difference. After it ran out, I didn't buy more. By then, I was already taking a prescribed medication that later cleared up my infection.
