No odor since ive started eating PICKLES?!

Posted , 5 users are following.

This is so odd...i have suffered from BV on and off for years, always an odor and i had finally given up these past couple years even trying remedies. My whole life ive hated pickels but was given one of those giant dills and randomlly fell in love with them! Ive been eating regular dills now for about 2 weeks.. About 2 a day, yum! I didnt even realize after about 4 days in (im guessing) my odor was gone.. I linked it to the pickles! This is the only new thing ive entered into my routine, im certain that this is helping. Am i losing my mind or is there some way pickels are actually helping my condition? :') i feel silly asking this.

    I've never heard of that before, so I looked it up ("pickles and bv" ).  Found this wikihow that actually mentions it!  http://www.wikihow.com/Prevent-Bacterial-Vaginosis-from-Coming-Back. ; Apparently pickles are a probiotic food, so you are benefiting from the probiotics.  LiveStrong.com says:

    "Some of the food sources containing live cultures include garlic, bananas, yogurt, sauerkraut, pickles, wine, cheese, bread and chocolate. However, some foods, such as chocolate, may contain a high content of sugar. Since unwelcomed bacteria thrive on sugar, choose low-sugar or sugar-free options to reap the full benefits of eating probiotic foods."

    Guess I should start eating more pickles too!!
