    Hello Samantha Having felt the same I sympathise. Do you have people to do practical things for you as this can alleviate the stress. The condition is under valued by the Medics like many gynaelogical problems. Have you looked on YouTube about the condition? Have you tried fine sea salt in baths and hydrogen peroxide?

    hey samantha,

    ive battled it for almost two years. i know how you feel. i spent so much money and time going back and forth to my gyno and on different medicine. she finally referred me to a specialist. i seriously recommend you do all your research and find a bv specialist. stop listening to your other doctor. then go prepared with every single question you have. i dont know where you are located but ppl come in from out of state just to see the specialist i go to. hes helped me so much. his name is DR. Sobel in philadelphia. look him up. you wont be disappointed.

    hey! i struggled with Bv for a year and a half. it was the worsecyear and a half of my life. i tried everything! nothing worked. i went to 3 different drs and 3 different nurse practitioners. they all just gave me antibiotics and probiotics and told me i was doing something wrong. after 10 months, i finally figured out my trigger was sugar. i could have natural sugar in fruit, but NO ADDED sugar. i didnt understand how all of a sudden i just couldnt have sugar. my dr just told me to treat it like an allergy. i demanded that sone labs be drawn bc it jist didnt make sense. she drew a bunch of labs, my VIT D was 24. which is really low. this can cause sugar intolerance. i was started on VIT D 10,000iu daily. after 3 months i am totally fine! no more Vb!!!! i can eat sugar all i want. you should havecyour level checked. dont just take it. too much vit d can be harmful. Before i got all better, when i would stsrt to get one, i would use the lactic acid suppositories. i got them on amazon for like $8 for 15 of them. i would open my probioitc and dump it in the end. some had divets already. if they didnt i would make one. there are two specific strains for the vagina. L RHAMNOSUS and L REUTERI.. its refridgersted and really good. you ca also make a little paste by dumping it in your hand and adding a few drops of water. you can apply it up in there with your fingers. the smell would go away. hope this helps!!!! let me know if any of it works for you!
