Bacterial vaginosis help

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've had bacterial vaginosis on and off for a year now. It's ruining my sex life and self esteem and i feel like I'm so upset over it I'm starting to get depressed. I just finished another round of doxycycline have been taking rephresh probiotics drinking kefir and inserting plain dannon yogurt. I still have fishy smelling discharge and burning. I'm supposed to spend a weekend with a guy I've been wanting to be intimate with for a while now and I can't tell him bc we aren't in a relationship where I feel comfortable exposing that much. He said he loves giving oral and now I'm even more scared that this isn't going to go away in time. I have a week. And if I do get it to go away were spending a whole weekend together, is there anything I can do after sex each time to keep it from coming back instantly? I've heard of using peroxide. Would that be safe for oral afterwards? I feel like I'm never going to get over this and it upsets me so much.

    Hi I truly feel you. I have gone to depression and lost self esteem due BV too. I mean I dont know if it was BV ... but yes, fishy smelly vagina, sometimes the smell could be so worse that I could just smell it when I am shifting my legs. ... sad in the same forum, i tried inserting vitamin C-1000 with rose hips (greenlife brand) at night before going to bed and in the morning I orally took probioic 1billion active (Pearls) .. in two days, the smell vanished. smile But i do not know if its a side effect of this? But I got thrush (yeast infection) after....But smell completely vanished. I did the internally inserting Vitamin C - 1000 for two weeks. After which, I treated my thrush with Monistat 3-day treatment pack (this comes with inserts, a cream for itchiness. After the 3 day treatement my Thrush also disappeared. smile Happy as I could be... However note that I have refrained from sex during the treatment phase (1 month)... sad 

    Now I continue to orally take probitoc (Pearls 1 billion) every morning, and the same Vitamin C 1000 with rose hips orally during at night before going to sleep. No inserts currently. My Vagina is fresh and no smell at the moment. smile 

    But also I havent had sex after being cured yet. I am taking a break from sex (both oral and vaginal for 3 months just bring back natural flora to my vagina) I have to see if it reoccurs after oral sex again now.... Hope this helps ...

      Hey random question... Did you ever feel a burning feeling while dealing with bv? I get this random burning feeling but only once or twice a week at random ?? and I am currently doing the suppression therapy with metrogel twice a week and fluconazole once a week.

      Haven't had a yeast infection or thrush and have been diagnosed with bv off and on for the past year.
