      yeah it does get you down .

      I feel sorry for any ladies in relationships I live alone and single..I'm worried bv will never go and I'll remain single with no children forever .

      respect to anyone girl reading who is in a relationship I really don't know how you all do it .

      I was reading reviews on bv pesserys and a guy wrote a review for his wife and I thought..arrrr that's lovely .

      but I know all men are not as understanding I know a few of my exes who would throw this bv in my face .

      I really hope your cream works x

      i have been in a relationship since this started im pretty sure that changing from my long term partner to my current new partner is possibly what triggered the whole thing he has been sympathetic about the whole thing tho sex whilst stinking is very embarassing for me anyway i guess if someone loves u they love u even if u smell like the local fish market

      Kim,

      Good luck and please let me know if the clindamycin works! I have tried Flagyl three times ( the pills), metrogel twice and with a suppression therapy (taking twice a week) and it still didn't go away. I just took boric acid capsules (from compound pharmacy) for two weeks straight and it helped my urinary frequency and the burning feeling. Now I am on boric acid suppression therapy (twice a week for six months). I just finished my period and I am doing a few more days of the boric acid as I feel like its coming back. 😦

      hi michelle ye the metronidiazole took the urine urgency away for me an the smell ...the longest i have been free from it is two weeks then it came back i seem to just have the discharge and bit of lower back pain that i need rid of the discharge is the worst horrible thinking that people can smell you and not only that but having to change ur pants all the time it makes you feel dirty even tho alot of the time it can be caused by being to clean

      ha ha a fish market meets the sewers is how I'd describe it ( for me )

      I was using always pads every day for nearly 4 years now and some of the odours on the pad had me baffled then another girl wrote it's like a swerge smell .

      yes I was also given the same antibiotics 3 weeks ago I was better 2 days then my period came and it came back .

      I've brought pesserys and its 2 days free of bv but I know it will return.

      also my bv all started because of my ex bf sperm Ive suffered for 10 years.

      I'd get water infections all the time as well as bv and thrush

    i also found out that bv can be caused by abnormal cells within the cervix aka cin

    its best to have a pap smear whilst having swabs done cos they can both be done in one go

    Hey again, was looking at your posts after you responded to mine. Have you tried prebiotic suppositories? Or maybe see if your gyno has any thoughts on them?.. I have read that for some women it has worked wonders in maintaining and promoting normal ph and you can use them whenever or as often as you want. I used it once and found that it irritated me but everyone is different..

      iv tried probiotics but not tried suppositories im pretty impressed with the first nights use with the clindamycin no smelly discharge no back pain but how long it will stay like this is a different storey but one nights use has made a big difference i would recommend if none of u tried this cream to give it a go iv had no side effects yet but got another 6 days to go

      Yay! I hope it continues for you. My test is always after my period as it comes back 😦. Did you have the same issue in the past? I am perimenopausal and I think its tied to my hormone fluctuation.
