I suffer from BV.

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi, I'v had BV for 1 1/2 yrs now. I'v been to 3 different Doctors have taken every kind of Meds including Boric Acid & nothing helps. My symptoms are burning, itching & irration and a grayish discharge.I do not have an odor ( for which I'm grateful) but nonetheless I am miserable & continually uncomfortable.I am afraid that it will NEVER go away & I guess I'm reaching out for some support.

I'm past childbearing age and have had the same boyfriend for 1 1/2 years.

    Hi there, am sorry you have had so much trouble. I don't really have any advice as I am suffering as well and your symptoms sounds the same as mine. Had mine for nearly a year. I have tried Clindamycin cream which is an antibiotic as I struggle with normal antibiotics in pill form. And not been able to tolerate Metrodinazole at all even in the cream as am allergic. It is a nightmare. I have tried natural yogurt but thats not helped. I not heard of Boric Acid. I feel like I will have mine forever as well. I've been trying to get into hospital as I have polyps but they keep refusing me because of this BV. I thought of taking Acidophilus as it has the friendly bacteria but can't see it doing much. Is the burning you get feel like its in the lower part of stomach like bladder and ovaries? Mine hurts now. I suppose my last option will be metrodinazole which I will end up in bed with for a week. Cos I have to get into Hospital. First I am going to do another BV test to see if its still there which am sure it is as I just finished the Clindamycin cream. I know antibiotics can make it come back again. Sorry I don't have anything to suggest. Am at a loss like you are.
