**Scroll down if you want to know what I did without having to read my long story. Hope this helps someone!! I struggled with pain/burning during urination that usually lasted a whole day Also extreme pain/burning during sexual intercourse. Now I'm BV free and I don't have these problems anymore!!** I'm opened to any questions
My BV symptoms first started when I began to have sexual intercourse without using a condom. I started to get a smelly discharge and was really itchy in my vaginal area. I went to my primary care provider and she diagnosed me with BV and put me on Flagyl. The symptoms disappeared right away and I was BV free for like three weeks. The smelly discharge came back but not as strong this time. The smelly discharge only came right after sexual intercourse and after I showered it seemed to calm down. Months passed by and I started to get these episodes of painful/burning during urination--that lasted even after I urinated. It only went away when I drank at least 36oz of water. These episodes continued to happen and I finally decided to go back to my PCP after they became more frequent. They put me on Flagyl again and it failed. My episodes seemed to get worse. I started to do sitz baths with apple cider vinegar and it worked to relieve the symptoms temporarily. My PCP then recommended boric acid suppositories which also worked temporarily. I decided to go a CO-OP close to home and explore natural remedies. The worker there recommended me to take greek yogurt and douche, to leave in the yogurt for about 30 minutes. I did this about three times and got a little itchy. I also bought PH balance douche called "Bio-match Good clean love" Link is below. THIS IS WHAT CURED MY BV!!! I used it three nights straight and at first, I felt a tingly feeling and it went away gradually. I was getting my pain/burning at urination every week and this PH balancer saved my life!! My BV got worse when I drank a lot on the weekends or when I had sex. I started to panic because I wasn't able to enjoy sex with my boyfriend anymore. But after using this PH balance there was not more burning/pain during sexual intercourse. It literally changed my life.
How I cured my BV:
I used this PH balancer three times a week. Now I use it as a spot treatment. Once a week or so. Whenever I get itchy down there.
