Nothing works!!! Help!!!

Posted , 29 users are following.

Ok so I have been suffering with chronic bv for 3 years now. My mind and body is Sooo tired!!! I don't know what else to do I have tries everything and nothing has worked. I'm tired of wasting money on things that don't work. I feel like I'm gonna b stuck like this for the rest of my life and I don't think I can handle that I've suffered long enough. I just want to b normal again!!! Why doesn't anything work!?!? I'm losing my mind literally. I don't know what else to try does anybody have any suggestions. I've tried lemon and water, boric acid, several antibiotics, yogurt, vinegar, peroxide, gels, salt baths and tea tree oil. Also probiotics and nothing!! My main issue is the ODOR it won't go away!!! Oh and also my doc done a procedure where he frozen my cervix and that didn't work either so I'm desperate I'm tired of being embarrassed and getting made fun of. My children hears and sees all this its so heartbreaking how people in this world are about things.

    If you’re sexually active, are you using protection?

    saj72607 I understand how you feel I battled BV for seven years.  The odor was bad and discharge and itching were horrible.  Like you I tried everything under the sun and nothing seemed to work.  Until I started the following:

    I only use Original Dove Liquid soap. (white and blue bottle)

    I cut my sugar intake gradually until it's almost none.

    I use Kotex ultra thin liners daily and changed often (these pads are as thin as paper you can't feel them at all) they are sometimes hard to find but Walmart and Target usually carry them.

    As soon as sex is over go directly to the bathroom urinate and use Dove Liquid soap to clean up good.  If you have sex again repeat the urinate and clean up process.  (even if you use protection)

    After you shower dry off really good and don't put underwear on right then just like go without while you put your make up on or whatever at least 10-15 minutes of no underwear.  (everything airs out and dries)

    After you have dried off and aired out and your ready for underwear rub on some Hydrocortisone cream 1% this works wonders you may need to carry some with you through the day until it really starts working. (this is available anywhere and is really inexpensive)

    Sleep without underwear and DON'T use any kind of OTC yeast treatments.

    This will take a little time but just keep it up.  I don't have to wear the liners every day anymore just right before and after my period.  I also don't have to carry the cream around for emergencies anymore.  But I do use the cream every day without fail.  So far this has been working for the last 5 years.  Good Luck

      I use dove wash religiously but for my skin not my vagina .

      Dove and fem fresh etc has only made my BV worse

      every nurse and doctor in the last 10 years I've had BV have all said no products in our lady garden.Theres something you can use in the outside of the vagina is Aquarius cream

      Only use this cream

      Asda and Boots and pharmacies sell the cream .

      but definitely dont use Dove for your vagina.

    Hello, I am in the same boat :”( I have bad odor that is very noticeable in public and small places. (Car especially) and I am single so trying to have any type of a love life has been non existent for almost two years... I tried everything you mentioned except the freezing cervix procedure. I can’t afford to keep buying “Refresh” (spelled that wrong on purpose) and other products like tea tree oil, sea salt, apple cider vinegar, baking soda etc.... I tried everything separately. Nothing worked... I have not been having sex at all. I have been to my Gyno at least 20 times the past year or two.... antibiotics are useless.. gels and creams are useless. Douches are useless!! I am SO DEPRESSED I can barely function each day. Idk how much more I can take.. I’m only 25 I just want to be able to live my life but I can’t be happy with vaginal odor :”( I also have been exercising more and eating clean for months... that doesn’t help either. I wish the CDC would resize how terrible this is for women and find a cure!

      *hi, I've been suffering from this for about seven years now, and I have still haven't found a cure. I have no idea what it is and why nothing will work , whether I have sex or not. I can go months without sex, but still have the odor and I have no idea. it is so embarrassing. I'm 27 now. if you have found anything to make it stop permanently, please share

      I hope you're now cured of BV.

      but I just wanted to say I'm where you are or where you've been.

      I'm 36 I've suffered 10 years .

      but it's been 4 years now and nothing works

      I can.smell my BV odour on my leather sofa or on my pjs

      its summer I've lovely dresses to wear but I didn't realise I couldn't wear them because of BV.

      ive been single 4 years so it's not sex related

      like you I can't begin to meet a guy I would be so paranoid I'd never get intimate

      hope you reply back as your post is exactly how I am .

      I completely know you feel!!! I'm so depressed over the smell and discharge and nothing seems to work for me either 😦 It really impacts how i act, and it bugs me to hear my friends tell me about their sexual experiences when I'm too self-conscious to even engage because my bv won't go away!!!

      I have yet to find a solution, but I wanted to let you know i'm here for you and can relate!

    Hi there, I'm so sorry you are going through this, I did for year an know exactly how it feels... I also tried everthing with no luck.. so in the end I stressed to my Dr who said to try the antibiotics again (Metronidazole) with a full course of 5 tablets in 1 day instead of the usual course in a week. .. I did this for two days and the bv went .. now to prevent it coming back , me and my partner wash with just warm water (maybe a little soap-dove is the best) before and after intercourse.. I haven't (touchwood ) had it for nearly a year now.. hope this helps... it's really important to wash and pee after sex. 🤗
