I've fought with BV for the last couple of years. I've been on the oral antibiotics almost 3 times. I did the metrogel twice. That seemed to be the only thing that worked to clear up the infection. I recently used the metrogel for the second time b/c of course, the BV came back. Last Friday was my last dose of metrogel. It gave me a yeast infection, w/ cottage cheesey discharge and a slight itch. But the awful smell went away, and so did the yellow discharge. Anyway, I did my research on how to keep my vag in check and keep the BV away. I ran across forums talking about vitamin c suppositories and I saw your article. So I decided to try. The following night after my last metrogel dose, I inserted the vitamin c (500mg, no rose hips) and the next morning, I felt great. It even cleared up my yeast infection. I just had discharge that was a creaming/yellowish (sometimes orangish) color. That night, I went to insert it again, and I had a rough time it itched, tingled, and burned. And I woke up the next morning with the same discharge and a slight itch. I don't know what happened. So the other night, I put the vitamin c in again, and it was fine. So I assumed that the reason I had problems was because I didn't insert it far enough. Next morning, no smell. Just a slight itch and the same discharge. I tried upping it to two times a day with the vitamins. Still the itch and the discharge. Just no smell. I don't know what to do. Should I keep on with the vitamin c? Do you guys think my BV has come back that quick, even with the vitamin c suppositories? I take probiotics made specially for women's vaginal health. I started taking showers as opposed to baths. I clean down there with only a wet, warm towel while showering. I wipe front to back. I drink water. I don't want to go back to the doctor. I spent so much money for them to tell me what I already know: I have BV, and then proceed to treat me with stuff that only gives me relief temporarily. If anyone could help, that would be great.
