So about two years ago my doctor ran some blood tests and told me I needed to get a vitamin d supplement because I was a little deficient. I knew nothing about vitamin d deficency. I never took the supplement. I recently saw on a blog on bv that a woman said she was cured. I went and got me a bottle. Making sure it was a good brand. I did my research. I started taking 3 gel caps. 5000 iu each making the total 15000 iu a day. Things changed IMMEDIATELY. Like literally the same day. I am a black woman and lots of us are deficient because of the pigment in our skin makes it hard to soak up the vitamin d from the sun. It's a hormone technically which is Extremely important!! Just try it. It could be live saving for you. Keep in mind I had bv for about 7 years with no cure. Took antibiotics numerous times. It would only work for a week then come right back. Ladies maybe your deficient in something. Get your levels tested. I believe there is no one cause of bv. Everyone gets it for different reasons. U just have to find out what your issue is. Mine was vitamin d3 deficiency! Hope this helps! I've suffered too long so I know how you are feeling and what you are going through!

    Wow thank you!! I dont think I have been taking enough vitamin D, I did start on a regimen of acidolphilus and vit D but I quit the D. Will start taking again. I have been significantly better recently but I believe the D may save me. Again, thanks so much!!

      You're welcome! I hope this is your solution. Make sure u get blood work done to see if you're deficient anywhere else. Iron ect. Something so small could be the issue. smilesmile

    Hi! Ive been doing so much research on bv and im so lost. Ive taken probiotics and they just make things worse(i guess just for me since it works for a lot of people). But im glad i came across this because i had a blood test not too long ago that said i was vitamin d deficient (im also black and its interesting to know that this is common). I never took the pills she recommended to get but now i think ill give it a try!! I hope this works!

      hi! so far ive only been taking them for a week and see a slight improvement, so it looks promising! Im also taking 5000iu but only one gel cap a day, so im thinking about bumping it up to two. ive read to that cutting out sugar or carbs would be a good combo too but i know thall be hard! ill see how it goesbiggrin

      Are you using a brand that requires refrigeration? If not, I suggest you try one. I use Ultimate Flora Vaginal Support 50 Billion cultures. It worked wonders. I'm also going to add vitamin d to my regime. Hope it helps. I buy mine from the Vitamin Shoppe. They also sell them at whole foods. Remember they have to stay cold because the culture are live.
