- Years gone by...15 mon
So, after all these years gone by that I have been dealing with my ”little problem” and all the research I’ve done... and I think it was around 7 or so years ago that I posted about BufferGel, which I still think sounds like a promising treatment and possibly a cure, that I am still here. Still treating it myself at home, still managing a problem that, in theory, should be very easy to resolve. It boggles the mind that a poisonous drug like AZT can be rushed onto market without any testing in a matter of months but something like Buffergel, which essentially is completely natural, takes 10 ... read more

It’s been so long since I’ve written but only because I had nothing new. The BV was under control to the point where I could have a relatively normal sex life, which is to say I would have to treat myself with the Vit C or Peroxide or L Reuteri or some combination of the 3 after having sex and maybe a few days later I would be able to have sex again without worrying about odor. In January this year I decided to try some new Birth Control pills to see if it would help my acne problem so I had to go get a pap and exam. The dr. told me (without actually testing anything) that I had what looke ... read more

- Renewed efforts6 y
I can’t believe it’s been 4 months since I’ve written, the time goes by so fast and still this problem hangs around. I have decided to renew my efforts and start seriously treating this problem like I want to cure it. I’m tired of just managing it and currently I’m not sexually active so maybe right now is a good time to deal with the inconveniance of a serious treatment. I have been using the three treatments that I have at my disposal rather lazily. When I have odor or discharge or itching or all three, I’ll use something just to get rid of it for awhile. I’m not very good about regular ... read more

- Still waiting on BufferGel6 y
For a long time I have fought with BV, at the doctor and at home, with no real success. it seemed I was successful with the Vitamin C, Hydrogen Peroxide and L.Reuteri Tabs... I think the truth was that it was easier because I just wasn’t very sexually active so there wasn’t much going on to upset the bacterial balance. Now I am seeing a new man and much more sexually active and it is harder and harder to keep the odor and discharge away. I have to use something about every day and have found myself wondering if maybe I shouldn’t just give the flagyl another chance. I know that’s what start ... read more

- Feeling better7 y
It seems my symptoms are gone right now, which is great! I haven’t gone for more than a couple days symptom free in a long time, at least since having that IUD out. The last thing I did was a dose of the Rephresh gel and I’ve still been taking the Reuteri every day - orally, it’s been a long building process but I think this is really the most normal I’ve felt in the last 3 years.
Even before when I was ”symptom free” I still had a heavy discharge, just not the odor. Now I don’t even have that, no unusual discharge, no itching or irritation, and certainly no odor. I’m really excited, I ... read more

- ongoing efforts7 y
Since my last posting I have been alternating hydrogen peroxide douche with RePhresh gel, trying every other day so one doesn’t defeat the other, and no luck.
Always, by day 2 the itching and discharge are back. Is itching normal with BV? I’ve always had a problem with it but never read it listed as a symptom of BV - I wonder if I have mixed issues with yeast sometimes - but there is no mistaking the odor of BV so I’m sure that I have a problem there as well.
Today I decided to try something different - I have some Femdophilus capsules in the fridge that I tried (orally) and quit takin ... read more

I’m off in unfamiliar territory now. I’m not sure what to do next, it’s hard to tell if the last round of treatments I’ve done helped me or hurt me.
I’m now having this discharge that looks like infection or healing matter (dare I say pus) uuugh. I hate even saying that. The odor is not bad but the itching and irritation are. I’m not sure whether or not to do another Hydrogen Peroxide wash? Maybe another RePhresh insert or just leave things alone for now. I hesitate to do the RePhresh because if it doesn’t work while there is existing infection - only as a preventative - I don’t want to ... read more

I’m still fighting major problems since having the IUD removed. I can’t seem to get anything to work for more than a couple days - which means it’s not working at all...
I used a Vitamin C tablet the night before last and yesterday was just dealing with burning and itching and discomfort, I didn’t feel like it helped at all. So I went to the store and bought some of the RePhresh gel and went home and used a hydrogen peroxide douche first, because someone on here said that the gel didn’t work for her if she was already suffering. Then I used the gel and finally got some relief. Today for ... read more

The above is a link to an article on yahoo, exploring the idea of using the retroviral drugs used to ”treat” HIV on health people as a means to prevent contracting HIV and make unprotected sex ”OK” again.
If you have done any reading on HIV, AIDS, and the discovery and use of common retroviral treatment - the ”alternative” reading on AIDS raises the question as to whether AIDS really kills people or if it is in fact retroviral treatment that actually kills AIDS patients.

I used the Vitamin C treatment for one night and luckily have the odor under control again, it’s been 3 days since and no odor.
It’s got to be obvious to doctors that inserting some foreign object in the uterus could be a breeding ground for bacteria and I question what the positive outcome of leaching copper into your system could be... Other than preventing pregnancy of course, hmmmm let’s see, rat poison or arsenic or lead or mercury would probably kill sperm also but do I want any of that in my system? I can’t believe I ever got talked into that!

I’m so glad I did that. I was afraid it was going to be as bad as having it put in but apparently my body didn’t mind getting rid of it. A tiny twinge and it was gone.
I am once again using the Vitamin C treatment for the BV that was just relentless while I had the IUD, and hopefully now that it’s out I can treat successfully again.
I asked the OB/Gyn if she had any other suggestions for birth control, I am just amazed at how the medical community is trained to push the unnatural and discount the natural - even in the literature.
She said the best she could do without the use of h ... read more

- IUD - seems to perpetuate the BV problems7 y
I have had this IUD in for nearly 6 months now. Since January anyway - and I’ve had nothing but persistent problems with the BV again.
I have about 1 day per month when I’m not cramping, bleeding, smelly, or otherwise unpleasant that I can actually have sex. This is really getting to be a pain.
I think the only solution is to have the IUD removed. I’ve tried my previous method of treating the BV and it just isn’t working as well as before. I can go a couple days without odor during which time I am usually dealing with VERY heavy discharge - some of which seems to have been caused by ... read more

- Pointless?7 y
Sometimes writing in this blog...still... seems pointless. I mean, I haven’t come up with a cure or anything new and wonderful. I do feel pretty good that it seems as though my personal experiences may have helped some people out a little bit and I’m grateful for that. It was nice to share my experiences too, things like this are such a stigma it’s hard about to talk to even the person you care most about, it’s nice to be able to anonymously ’spill my guts’ so to speak.
and.... I thank you all for listening and reading.

- Femdophilus - Update7 y
I’ve been taking this stuff for the last 4 days, I am starting to have some BV odor now, for the last 2 days. This is about the time I would normally do the Vitamin C, and I haven’t because I wanted a true feel for how well the Femdophilus works.
But, as anyone who has this chronic problem knows, 2 days of this odor is 2 too many. I will probably do a Vitamin C tonight becuase the FemD isn’t working well enough or fast enough.
I’ll continue to take it - the purpose of it is to recolonize the vagina with good bacteria so if it really works, I’ll never have the symptoms of again after ... read more

as suggested to me in an earlier comment by Sapphire 20.
I ordered some of this from ProVitamins. At $18.94, the cost was very reasonable. The bottle arrived in a plain box - not refigerated - though the bottle says to store under refrigeration. Shipping was super-fast, it arrived in 2 days.
It’s an oral capsule meant to recolonize the intestinal tract and vagina with healthy strains of lactobacillus. It contains 2 specific strains, which I have not yet done any research on.

I wonder sometimes (most times) if these doctors even know what they’re doing, what the effects are of these drugs they’re pushing. I mean, do they even do any research, any reading after they graduate from Medical school? Are they required to stay abreast of the latest developments and occurrences in the world of medicine?
I’m asking because honestly I don’t know! I know things change quickly but if I were a gynecologist, I would want to read about things that I didn’t know about or understand things better that I wasn’t clear on. I’d want to know all the effects of all the drugs I rou ... read more

- So Frustrated!7 y
This is so frustrating! I thought I had these problems at least under control and now that I’ve had the IUD put in, the BV is back. Not worse than ever... the worst it got was after numerous rounds of antibiotics to cure it (silly doctors). The problem now is that the Vitamin C doesn’t seem to be working so good. I remember when it was at its worst I had to do 3 or 4 consecutive days of Vitamin C treatment and then every couple of months I’ve had to do a single treatment to keep it under control and non-bothersome.
I went in for my 4-week checkup after they inserted the IUD and she coul ... read more

- IUD insertion - Recurrence, after so long7 y
I finally decided to go off the pill for good. Due to possible hormonal problems, acne and weird cycle changes like menopause (I’m only 31), so I had a copper IUD inserted about 3 weeks ago. First let me say, Wow - that really hurt. After the first week or so of healing time I noticed a recurrence of BV. It seemed to come on really fast - fine one day and the next, well, it was obvious by the odor.
I’m assuming that having someone messing around up there caused a bacterial imbalance, which I’m prone to anyway. All of our ’female hygenic’ practices are so INVASIVE! I mean, who was really ... read more

- As close to a cure as I need8 y
As far as I can tell, I have come as close to finding a cure as I needed to. I will consider any further treatments to simply be a maintenance issue.
Since I began this blog I have used a Vitamin C treatment twice as mentioned in these pages and I am discharge and odor free. I can thankfully, have sex again without having to worry about anything.
I don’t know if I’m 100% back to normal or not but I do know that I have found MUCH relief compared to how things were 6 months ago.
I am concluding this blog with this message. visit the page

- more on Ear Candling.. sorry off topic8 y
Did one more Vitamin C last week and all is well. We decided we might try ear candling again, I have read up on it since. We got some new ear candles, they were 100% beeswax, I did one on my boyfriend and came out with a lot of yellow wax. As it burned down I could see runnels of wax dripping down the inside of the cone through the material.
Because of the doubts I had after reading I went ahead and burned one in my hand, cupping it around the end so as to create a vacuum such as it might in your ear. What I came out with in the end was the very same amount of identical yellow wax and e ... read more
