    I am the OP and I just wanted to share my experience with this new antibiotic for recurrent BV.  I have tried every possible thing to cure my BV to no avail. I happened upon this new FDA approved antibiotic called Solosec.  Good news is that I took it 2 weeks ago and fingers crossed, I have been non-symptomatic.....bad news is that insurance doesn’t cover it yet.  I was able to download a coupon from the pharma company that manufactures it.  I paid $93 out of pocket, but it is a single dose.  I haven’t started my period yet, so this will be the ultimate challenge to see if it works.  But I am quietly optimistic!

    I'm going to my doctor tomorrow I think I'm going to ask for this. After all I've done to try and remedy this naturally it comes back every other week still.... I'm just worried about the side effects (i.e. making me sick?)

      Believe me I understand your concerns...I stopped using flagyll(metro gel) because of what I read on it, plus the fact that it didn’t work.  I have been using essential oils for the past 2 years and that has helped when I became “symptomatic” as using boric acid suppositories.  I honestly happened upon this new antibiotic Solosec and felt like I should at least give it a chance.  I’d say the worst side affects from this was nausea and a metallic taste in my mouth for about 3 days.  I am 3 weeks past taking it and so far I have not had any BV issues!

      Michele how long did it take for you to see improvent with your BV symptoms? I’m going to take the Solosec today but having a chronic case of BV makes me pessimistic. I’m so happy you have found relief!

      I had almost a full month of relief.  But unfortunately I had sex the other night and the all true persistent odor was there afterward.  I treated it with boric acid suppositories and massive doses of fem-dophollis.  So I’m not certain it was effective.  If it does continue, I will try it again.  Out of all the things I’ve tried, this has been the most effective

    Ugghh I’m sorry it’s happening again for you. I read on another post that this girl has been trying garlic supplements with the highest number. It’s said to work well. Maybe give them a chance. I just bought them I’m on my 4th day. I hope it works for us ladies. I’m so over it I can’t even sleep peacefully without having bad dreams about it and I feel bad pushing my bf away because I’m scared of it coming back.

      My boyfriend thinks I just don’t like him anymore it’s so sad! We went from passionate 3 times a day to once a week! I’ve been taking garlic supplements and a probiotic for about three weeks now. No luck yet but I’m not giving up. I just finished taking the Solosec with yogurt it’s disgusting! Hoping for some relief.

      Solosec is disgusting!!!  That metallic taste will linger for a few days too.  I have made boric acid suppositories mixed with tea tree and lemon Young Living Essential Oils.  It definitely helps when I’m symptomatic.  I insert them and then put in a tampon to keep it all in to do its magic
