Vitamin C

Posted , 6 users are following.

I tried this today, I bought the pills and inserted one, well guess what it sent me to my OBGYN! The nurse was upset with me for doing so, they are acidic and can damage the tissue inside there and cause you to bleed.

      I would say just know every woman reacts differently. I tried everything else and because some said vitamin c gave a burning sensation but worked, I used it as a last resort. Got my first case of BV about a year ago and tried EVERYTHING. Vitamin c worked for me with minimal discomfort. I'm on day 2 and feeling normal and fresh! Been happy all day!!

      I agree I tried vitamin C with rose hip tab for the first time last night and I didnt have any bad reactions just relief. I think everyone's body will respond differently.

      It worked for me but it's back again. My period is set to start this week which is usually around the time my BV acts up. So sad to say, vitamin c wasn't my cure. :-(

    I'm so sorry that you're having that result from the Vit C. 

    I have recieved lots of different adivce on what to do avout BV.. I think that's just the unfortunate part about it being a condition that is not fully understood by the medical community (what causes it, how to effectively treat it, how to prevent recurrance). These are all of the issues my doctor and I discussed and becuase I personally can't handle anitbiotics of any kind (I get insane yeast infections and also horrible nausea). So the vitamin C did work for me but I would like to add that I got organic vitamin c, no added sugars, no coating, I also only inserted the vitamin c for a couple of nights in a row and then went without - the smell was finally completely gone so I didn't feel the need - I pla on using the vitmain c vaginally if I need it for maintenance but otherwise I'm sticking to probiotics, vitamins b12, d, c, mutli, folic acid, and other changes in my diet that have been EXTREMELY helpful. I also refrain from douching and haven't been sexually active often. It was my one year wedding anniversary and my husband and I were able to be intimate and I didn't start smelling like a dead fish.

    I also refrain from douching, which I used to do once a month after my period ended. 

    A low bath with about a cup of apple cider vinegar helped me with soothing before I found the vit c.  I would liek to add that my mother has experienced bv several times and the antibiotics her obgyn prescribes clear it up and she usually wont get it again for a few years, I think every woman's body is a tad bit different and we all deserve to feel confident in our bodies. 

    I really hope your doctor is helpful when you go back and that you get good info and a solution to BV. Sending you good, healing thoughts!
