So about 6 months ago I went to the doctor and got diagnosed with BV and Yeast infections. They gave me pills for it which I didn't finish (my bad) and ever since I've always been infected with it until now. It's always BV and Yeast. Yesterday I went to the clinic to get tested and said all good except clue cells were still positive.
SO I think I figured it out. Been reading online about it and apparently the bacteria that causes BV has created a biofilm that antibiotics can't penetrate through. Metronidazole and all that helps but doesn't eradicate and destroy the biofilm which is why it just adds up and keeps creating a cycle.
I heard that boric acid helps destroy biofilms but a lot of reviews says otherwise. I'm trying out probiotics (Lactobacillus casei v. rhamnosus Doderlein) inserted vaginally as I heard they can destroy biofilms. I've heard soaking a tampon in salt and inserting it for 2 hours also helps but I'm a bit skeptical about it. Does anyone have any cure to this?
