What are your BV symptoms?

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hello! Before being diagnosed with BV I never even knew of it. Since then and with much research, I have come to realize many of us have a variety of different symptoms. Curious to know if any of you struggle with the same symptoms as well? Mine started out with a feeling as if I were "dry" down there, excess discharge and the smell! Since taking several rounds of antibiotics the smell is no longer there, however I still have a dry feeling, my skin feels as if I have razor burn most days and air bubbles/pelvic floor spasms. Curious if anyone else has similar symptoms, or if I may be dealing with something other than BV?

      yes, I have this as well!! Do you have any treatment that you seem to think helps? I have found hot baths with sea salt and baking soda ease the symptoms a bit!

      yes i have hot baths with sea salt now and they do help. but now what ive started to do is soak an organic tampon in boiling water and sea salt and leave for 30 minutes than i insert it and let it sit for about 2 hours twice a day. try this for 3 days and see how u go..

    i typically get the most common symptoms- the fishy odor, discharge, and the feeling of little cuts or abrasions on my vagina. I also get a weird and kind of gross symptom that i hardly ever hear about. it may be due to the increased discharge, but i get this kind of residue all over my vulva that will clump up when touched/rubbed. (i used to think it was my skin peeling.) it's very annoying and i end up cleaning down there multiple times every day to get rid of it

      the cuts and abrasion feeling is the worst for me! Do you use anything to help with this? I have tried several ointments but have not found anything to completely take the pain away.

    my BV symptoms are abnormal discharge, sometimes thick white and sometimes a yellow color, and the worst of it all the fishy smell!

    yea I know what you mean I get feelings that I've cut myself down there or another sore is coming up .

    but the worst by far is the smell

    I'm buying a new mattress ( honestly lol ) cuz I just feel like the bv smell is in every fiber possible but I only started getting the smell go into fabrics after trying boric acid could just be a coincidence though.

    definitely understand the nagging pains though .

    I hate that so many of you are suffering as well. I hope we can all find a cure and releif. Do any of you ever have burning right before urinating or during?

    I was just recently diagnoised and have a painful feeling all the time.

    its not severe but I'm very much aware of my area at all times.

    There is a slight discharge, not too stinky and its worst when I exercise.

    I hope it clears up soon without RX.
