    I have had chronic BV for probably 4 years now. I know I don't always have it, but more so than not I have it each month; for me its mainly the odor.

  • Chronic Vaginal E Coli infections

    Hi everyone,  So the last few times I was treated for BV (in the summer of 2014), it turns out once the cultures came back, that I had E Coli and not Gardnerella.

  • My cure

    Hello ladies!! All I do to keep bv away is use aveeno body wash with yogurt. I put some on my finger and stick it in my vagina. This body wash has live cultures that help get your ph level back to where it should be. My discharge and odor are completely gone.

  • Anyone treated bv without antibiotics?

    I have had bv in the past but always put on metronidazole for 10 days. I'm wondering if anyone got rid of symptoms by changing diet and doing apple cider vinegar baths or using tea tree essential oil ect. If so I'd love to hear what you did and how long it takes to get back to normal. Thank you!...

  • Chronic BV. What Ive learned (all in one place)

    As many of you here, I have suffered from chronic BV for years, four years actually. It's amazing to me how I can go to a doctor, who will tell me first that it’s just a “nuisance” problem, and when I go back he’ll tell me he's never had anyone who didn't respond to this ____ treatment. Yet...
