So I have had BV for almost a year now (it will be a year start of September). For the longest time I thought I had caught something but I have always tested positive for BV and negative for STD's. I have been through 4 rounds of the gel and before that one round of the pill. I believe i got it from too many rounds of antibiotics for a UTI last summer. My doctor has put me on what she called suppression therapy. This is where I use the gel at bed time for two times a week for 3 months. She claims this will attack and rid the bio-dome of the bacteria. I have no idea what strains I have, my doctor does everything she can to avoid answering my questions and to make my appointment as quick as possible. She tested and said I do have BV blue cells. Has anyone done suppression therapy before??
I get so depressed hearing about women who have had this for years. I've tried every natural remedy mentioned on here to no avail (I mean literally everything). I have an appointment with a very expensive holistic doctor that specializes in women's health in September, but until then, I guess this is what I have to do.
Also I would love input on if I should avoid sex for now? I'm sure it's probably a yes but just want input. Condoms and no condoms seem to aggravate it a lot...
Thank you ladies in advance! I hope we find a cure some day!
