I have no clue what to do

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have had bacterial vaginosis for 4 years now. I wouldn't say on and off but definitely recurrent. I've tried metronidazole, boric acid, vitamin c supplements, clindamycin, probiotics. I've been tested for the mycoplasma and ureaplasma and treated but STILL, no relief!!! Any other suggestion??? Please help me!!!

    Agree some vitamins for some things can be very helpful and think you are on the right path with trying them out.  As far as C, try the buffered C, it is not so hard on the tummy and readily available thru your favorite online vitamin shops or Amazon, etc.  B is great for damaged nerves/nerve endings, which you almost most positively have due to recurring infections, inflammation and irritation, the wicked 3 I's.  B complex time release is great, 500 mg twice a day or all at once as they are time release.  If anything irritates your tum tum, do address that right away.  You want to keep your body ALKALIINE, so your favorite antacid should always be on hand.  Bcomplex is the up and coming for nerve damage and inflammation.  And do keep up with your probiotic regimen, lots of good quality organic Greek with nothing else added to it (you can make this yourself if you have access to raw milk in your state), they may not cure you, but will keeo your other systems going and help fight off secondary issues.  The question is, is this truly infection, chronic inflammatory disease, or a permanent condition causes by some sort of imbalance in the urinary tract or elsewhere in the body...and what triggers flare ups, etc.  I would keep a real good voiding and food diary, sleep, activities (sex), etc., and see if you can establish some sort of pattern, and don't forget any meds/supplements.  Do this for a few weeks or month and see if you can see what may be triggering or even causing things.  Good luck to you, and do try to stay away from RX meds and treat this from the soul out.

    Have you tried chlorophyll? Let me tell you, its amazing. With 2 months of dieting to get rid of my bv there was no difference, along with the thousands of home remdies, probiotics and feminine products. Two chlorophyll pills made the smell go away within minutes. I take 2 in the morning and 1 at night. Chlorophyll is an internal deoderant that detoxes your whole body including your vag. It's really amazing, plus it's natural so you're not slowly poisoning your insides with so much medicine. These pills can only be found in vitamin shops, I highly reccomend you invest into it smile

    Can also try eating lots of raw fresh parsley...contains the chlorophyl and also alkalizes the body, aside from having tons of vitamins a, c and iron and fiber.

    Hi Shaba,

    I have been dealing with Chronic BV for 6 years now and it's been awful...I came across a discussion on here recently that had so much information and I am feeling hopeful for the first time. Here is a link to the discussion in case you haven't seen it.

    https://patient.info/forums/discuss/chronic-bv-what-ive-learned-all-in-one-place--16756?p_token=37e08707-96fb-48da-95b6-90455e55aaee&order=oldest+&page=4#topic-replies

    Like you, I have tried almost everything out there with no success. I just started on the probiotics yesterday. Did the ones you took contain Rhamnosus and Reuteri? Apparently they are the only two strains of Lactobacillus that can survive the digestive track and get where they need to be. 

    I'm sorry that you are suffering with this, and hope that this link gives you some helpful information! Good luck!
