    Have you been to Dr. for an antibiotic? Vitamin C isn't a going to get rid of the infection, it may temporarily mask symptoms.

      Yes bv sucks. It's so embarrassing, and I've had people laugh at me. It p****s me off because, it's nothing to laugh about. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Not being able to live a normal life sucks, not being able to have sex due to embarrassment sucks. People thinking that you are dirty, and disease ridden sucks. Feeling dirty sucks. People can be so cruel, and heartless. It's like, to live with this/ to be depressed about it sucks. I avoid people, and I've cried, and wanted to commit suicide. The odd thing is, is that ceartain people don't smell it. Or at least they haven't made it known.

    Let me ask you this...while on the medication, did you take care to repopulate your good bacteria with a women's probiotic, folic acid and vitamin d3? This helped me and I've not had any problems since. I also discovered that my recurring BV was caused by my partner. It may be a good idea to have yours get treated as well.

      My partner (at the time) never got treated so I left him and moved on to someone new. We haven't had any problems with BV and things have been great. I have read (I think on this site) that women have had their partners treated with metronidazole and had success. Google "male partners treated for BV" or "can men carry  gardnerella infection", and you'll find studies that will support these findings and forums where women share their experiences.

      I actually haven't been on medication. I have been trying to practice good hygiene. I've also been drinking kunbacha, and kefir. I take vitamins along with placing vitamin c inside of my nether regions. It's worked for a long time, but I just recently stopped bc, and I've been really stressed. I am about to schedule an appointment with my obgyn today though. I'm kinda scared that they won't find it. I saw them 2-4 weeks ago. I had a Pap smear, but it came back normal. Wouldn't  the results have been abnormal with infection?

      So turns out, I didn't have to schedule an appointment. I called in, and described my symptoms to my nurse at the obgyn office. They are sending me flagyl today, and told me that if I still have issues they will evaluate me further. I will get my probiotic, d3, and folic acid asap. However, couldn't I just take a multivitamin or a prenatal vitamin? How many miligrams of each are sugested?

      The items I mentioned were included in several studies and shown to be effective in curing BV caused by gardnerella which was what I had. They worked for me and I had been bv free for 6 years until I changed partner. Even after that, I used these items (got rid of the boy as well) and still bv free. VERY IMPORTANT: after you take your flagyl, wait 2 hours AFTER, then take 800 milligrams of folic acid, 5,000-10,000 iu's of vitamin d3, and 1-2 tablets of Jarrow Dolphilus 10 billion (you need L.crispatis to repopulate your good bacteria, Jarrow brand is the only on with it). Do this after EVERY dose of flagyl, and continue with these vitamins/probiotics at least a month after you finish your meds. If you can find it, purchase purfem suppositories. This stuff is a miracle, but it's hard to locate. I sincerely hope this helps you as much as it helped me.
