... Has anyone beat this? I just finished my fourth round of antibiotics for 2013. I've tried everything. I've just about fallen into a deep depression. I've tried every at home remedy, am loaded on probiotics, can't dress in cute clothes, stopped having sex, don't wear cute panties, don't workout. I'm miserable. I'm only 26 and am a prisoner of this. I can feel my boyfriend becoming as frustrated as I am and I'm so sad and upset. Is there anything that will help me?
you seem to be doing everything right. i have had bv twice in the past two months and i did not have sex in between those two times, have changed my soap (frangrance-free, hypoallergenic), wear only cotton underwear, take probiotics daily, everything they recommend. mine was a very uncomfortable case (constant burning). i have heard of extended therapy with metronidazole as an option. you take it three days before and three days after your period. keeping your vaginal pH acidic (<4.5) appears to be key in keeping the bad organisms away and things like your period, soap, semen can raise that pH. i have heard of rePhresh products but my gyno has not personally recommended them to me but they are supposed to help maintain healthy pH, too. i, too, feel like a prisoner and have experienced a lot of anxiety over my situation so i totally empathize with you. i wish you luck!
I am sorry that you are a victim to this awful situation. I was once plagued by this too. I don't know if you are still suffering from BV, considering it has been two years now that you have typed this forum however something that doctors will not tell you is that there is a cure over the counter. I will get to that in a moment. Let me just warn you that taking antibiotics will only make matters worse and the BV will come back with vengeance as I am sure you have encountered. Antibiotics help if you have a virus otherwise they weaken your body's immune system and resistance to fight off colds. That of course, is a whole other issue. Go to a health shop and get Reuteri. You can even do your own research on this wonderful medicine. I was like you and felt suicidal and did everything imaginable to treat the BV. Nothing helped until I did some research and discovered this! I hope this helps! I have been BV FREE for 2 years now, and could not be happier!!
