BV with no symptoms

Posted , 4 users are following.

I’m going to make this long story as condensed as possible. A couple months back I was diagnosed with BV for the first time. Symptoms were present. Mainly the strong odor. Was given oral clyndamyacin and was fine. I was just diagnosed again, but with NO symptoms. This time I was given flaggyl. Ugh, what an awful drug. Couldn’t handle the pills. They gave me the gel instead and I haven’t been able to bring myself to use it. I am on day 5 of boric acid suppositories. Have been taking probiotics for a week and just bough fem dophilus today. I have been testing my ph level and it still at abnormal not showing much improvement. I am so stuck on what to do. I have ZERO symptoms, but don’t want to just ignore this. Do I just need to give this more time? I hate seeing that dark green color come up on the test strip 😕

    I’m in the same situation! I never had a strong odor though, just excessive yellow discharge. The flagyl made me super sick too, and I totally get not wanting to use the gel. I refuse to put anything down there because I feel it will be too harsh, even the boric acid. Haven’t been able to test my ph because I started bleeding so I’m sure im back tacking a bit. Make sure your probiotics have prebiotics in them so they will help your probiotics survive your GI tract. I’ve been drinking lots of lemon water, minimized my coffee intake and my sugar intake. Started taking coconut oil with Laurie acid caps orally as well as cinnamon and that’s helped. Make sure you let it breathe as much as possible. I would also stay away from antibiotics for a while. I was on metro for 1 week then doxy the next; I’m just totally switching my focus from killing the bad to replenishing the good because that’s really the problem here. Also it’s possible that you don’t have symptoms because you killed off majority of the bad bacteria and the gram stain just caught what’s left so I’d give it time and just focus on getting healthier!
