    Please respond with the name of the bacteria. I've been suffering for a decade with "BV". Nothing has worked up until recently when I was put on doxycycline for an unrelated skin infection and my symptoms went away! So i searched "doxycycline and bacterial vaginosis" to see if I could find out why it helped and that's how I found this post. My symptoms have returned but it was the first time I had relief in 10 YEARS! I made an appointment with my doctor so I can talk to him about this so if you could please tell us the name it would be much appreciated. It doesn't feel fair that you've found this answer, promised to come back with the name of the bacteria and then left us hanging. You could help thousands of women with this information.

      Hi! I've had something very similar as well. I went to the OBGYN last week and was diagnosed with non-infectious cervicitis. Cervicitis can be caused from STDs like chlamydia and gonorrhea but there is also the kind that's caused by tampons, fragrances, allergies (even to your significant other's sperm). I thought I had BV but it turns out I had the non-infectious cervicitis. They ran several blood tests for STDs, HIV, PID, thyroid etc. Everything came back negative thankfully!! My Dr. ended up putting me on doxycycline hyclate for 7 days, 100 MG 2 x per day and it seems like I'm in the clear. I have a follow up appointment on Friday, 10/28 to make sure I'm good to go so I can update you then! Hope this helps!

      Hello...I too have been suffering for years with bv...I can clear it up with metronidazole gel that goes into the vagina...but just as soon as the treatment is done which is 5 days...and when my husband and I have sex...with in 2-3 days afterwards the horrible smell is back...it literally smells like something rotting..I KNOW that sounds so gross but that's what I have to deal with...and it makes for a horrible sex life...my poor husband wants sex but I can't subject him to that smell...and I have to wear a panty liner all the time or sometimes ill even put a tampon in too to keep The smell down because I feel like people can smell me and I am a clean person but this smell makes me feel dirty all the time...what could be the cause of this coming back after sex?? Please help I've tried everything I've gone as far as putting plain yogurt inside of me trying to get rid of the smell.

    I've been dealing with BV for a few years now. I'm about to be 21 next week so maybe about 2-3 years I've been dealing with this issue. I tried everything and nothing worked completely for me either. So I finally thought about if it was just a yeast infection or not because my boyfriend and I talk about the issue and it makes me feel so down and out. But I went to Walmart and got a monistat test to see what it could be. The swab was still yellow after I inserted it into my vagina and that means my acidity was normal and that there was nothing more serious going on. I've been on day 2 of the monistat and I'm hoping that works. If that's all it really was I'm going to be so angry at my dr because I asked them about what I can do and what else there wasn't to take and they could never really help me out. $100s wasted on meds, different home remedy items, co pays for the Dr. So far I've seen a change so hopefully I have done the right thing

      I spoke to the woman who made this post and she said she had mycoplasma hominis. EVERY WOMAN WHO HAS STRUGGLED WITH CONSTANT AND/OR RECURRENT BV, go and beg your doctor for a test that tests for mycoplasma hominis, mycoplasma genitalium and ureaplasma Urealyticum!

    Hello I would like to share my story. So, for so long I have suffered with a bad odor here and there I did everything to try and stay fresh but I notice that after I Dutch even though it would be every blue moon I would have a thick white discharge it wouldn’t smell but it would be uncomfortable and destroying my underwear. I called my doctor after seeing him weeks ago for a pap test which came back clear. I told my doctor I need to be tested again and stated that he would Test me for more testing. When the results came back it was bad I had so much going on it was BV and I had no good bacterial. I have had several sexual partners so I knew that would be a issue he treated me with several antibiotic and a vaginal cream and I decided to remain not have sex for a year. Because I really wanted to take care of myself and listen to my Dr, he also recommended probiotics... well currently on my journey to a healthy vagina.

    Ladies, after I took the Doxycycline 2 tablets for 10 days along with Goats kefir(only probiotics that worked for me especially that it has only 2 percent lactose) I bought CERES SECRET WAND. Search it. My professor Gynaecologist recommended it and aparently in Germany they avoid use of antibiotics. And take the more Useful way. And I never got BV again. 

    You should bare in mind that I never stop Natural FRESH (not bottled) probiotics. NO SUGAR. Olive leaf extract 85% oleuropien. Since the antibiotics damage your immune system indefinitely. But the star is Ceres Secret. As it stimulates self cleansing as it gently exfoliates the skin. Tightens and you’ll suddenly have a new understanding to good sex.
