So I turned 39 and all of a sudden couldn’t get rid of my BV. It was CONStANt! I spent so much money going to the dr, on labs and medicines. They told me all the normal things to do, no laundry detergent, no soaps, probiotics, cut out sugar. I tried everything for months. No better. I went to 3 drs and asked if I husband needed to be treated, they all said no. Finally found one that treated him, and for the first time in 9 months, I went a whole month without an infection. I was still staying away from all the things they told me to. Then I had dessert at thanksgiving. Got an infection. Went away, had dessert at Christmas, got an infection again. So sugar was definitely the trigger! Now, I ask my dr why all of a sudden my body is doing this. She says she doesn’t know, but I just have to treat sugar like it’s an allergy. So I do. It sucks. I love sugar. And it’s everywhere! After 7 months is this I go back in. I ask for labs to be drawn bc it just doesn’t make sense that something hasn’t caused this. She draws blood and checks everything, hormones, Vitamins/minerals, blood counts. Turns out my my Vit D is low. She doesn’t think this is related to my BV. But I read up on it. Find out Vit D deficiency can cause sugar intolerance. So after taking Vit D 10,000 a day for 2 months, I have been eating sugar and have not had any infections at all!!!!! Totally back to normal!!!!!! It’s unbelievable that they haven’t figured out to see if something else is wrong. These drs are only looking at how the vagina works, not the body as a whole! It’s so important to have all your labs checked if you are having any chronic issue! I hope this helps someone. I thought my life was pretty much over bc if the BV. I had to get on anti depressants. Life was miserable! And all it took to fix it was $30 worth of vitamins.
