At first I'd like to start out with saying hi everyone, I'm a 19 yr old girl and I have bacterial vaginosis. It all started from me taking antibiotics and the problem started for me almost a year ago.
my symptoms are;
Milky sticky gooey discharge to watery and clear. I sometimes have a fishy to metal like smell, I have pelvic pains sometimes and from reading these forums, I've read other women do too. Itching is an annoying one, sometimes a burning sensation.
I have a boyfriend so sex is a difficult task sometimes because I also tend to get dry easily and the gross discharge does not help that situation either.
So yeah I've had enough, I'm stumped because I felt like I have tried a lot and I can't seem to find something that works really, even for temporary relief. Through out the year I've had maybe one or two days or relief but not complete relief even.
Antibiotics (metrodinazole), pro-biotics(rhamnosus reuteri), folic acid, garlic supplements, inserting vitamin c into vagina, rephresh pro b vaginal gel, lemon water, boric acid suppositories, douching with probiotics, probiotic suppositories, inserting Greek yogurt. There might be more but this is all I can think of for now.
Either these made it worse or they simply made no changes or very slight improvements.
I am currently drinking kefir, taking rhamnosus reuteri probiotics and taking vitamin d supplements everyday (my blood work showed low vitamin d levels). So I hope maybe kefir and this vitamin d make some sort a big change, for the better.
All in all I am pretty healthy. My hormones are in tact, I eat healthy, I take care of my health with exercise. I don't use tampons, I try to wear cotton underwear, and I only shower down there with warm water. Oh and of course the famous wiping from front to back, yes that too.
I am simply seeking out to you ladies, if I am maybe overlooking something or if any of you have some advice for this. I will report my progress with my current treatment route. Thanks for reading and for your time :-) :-)
