BV - rose hips with vitamin c

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hello. I’ve seen some posts where this has helped. Do you take it orally or insert it? I also took solosec last week and not noticing much change. Thanks!

    Insert it into yr vagina. Just make sure the brand you buy is silicone encapsulated. It didn't cure me, but it helped with the smell a little. But everyone is different.

    I’m sorry you didn’t have any change since taking the antibiotic sad. I have not used rose hip with vitamin C, but I have seen others who have and had improvement in symptoms.  I don’t recall how it was used though

    Yea Solosec didn’t help me at all 🙄.  Have you tried the boric acid suppositories? Im on day two and my BV is almost cleared up. My first one I took yesterday morning and by the time I got out of work no smell. I had used them once before for only three days but had to stop because I had a gyno appointment but I was clear for two days after that. I’m going to do them for 14 days then hopefully I’ll see enough improvement to go to 2-3 times a week. Fingers crossed but so far this has been the most relief I have felt in months.

    I have taken the rose hips a while back but it didn’t help me. I was just taking orally though.

    I actually take it orally and insert it. Started 3 days ago, I do believe there is a change I haven’t been experiencing any odor after the second day.

      Thank you. What kind of capsule do you insert? Is it a special kind? 

      Also I keep getting confirmed Bv cultures. My only symptom is itching.  I’ve never had odor. I wonder why everyone is so different

      Not any special kind, just regular vitamin C with rose hips from Vitamin Shoppe, just try to push it up inside as far as you can. When I first did it I did experience irritation, so the next time I did it I lubricated the pill in coconut oil. Smh idk why either, I literally had the most embarrassing smell ever; best of luck to you.
