Yes you are right, doctors are useless when it comes to BV, and all the information out there about what to douche with or what it insert is also useless. If you really want to cure BV, you have to be willing to change your diet. That's right BV is a nutritional problem, not a vaginal problem, that is just where it manifests itself. If you don't believe me try this. On an empty stomach, drink a glass of water with half a teaspoon of baking soda stirred into it. The empty stomach part is very important. If there is food in your stomach when you do this it will interfere with your digestion and nutrient absorption which is very bad. So one hour before or 4 hours after you eat something. Next time you start to smell the odor on you toilet paper after wiping, try the baking soda treatment twice a day, morning and night for 3 days. The smell will be gone. Because baking soda is a powerful PH lowerer. I used baking soda twice a day for 30 days and have not had a recurrence of BV since. But the underlying problem is your diet. The american diet is grain based which is very acidic. If you go online and do some research on the low acid diet, this will help you discover which foods to eat and which to avoid. But basically vegetables lower your PH. So you need to eat more vegetables than any other food group with every meal, even breakfast. What I eat is a large salad full of all the vegetables I can find seasonally. and with that I eat a small serving of organic meat. I avoid all grains and sugars, they will activate BV very quickly, and that includes fruit, it is mostly sugar, and remember corn is a grain, not a vegetable, and potatoes are a starch, not a vegetable. basically any vegetable that grows above the ground is good, if it grows below ground it is a starch and therefore a sugar. If I feel like a glass of wine now and then I just chase it with baking soda water because alcohol will set off my BV in one night. with the tools of vegetables and baking soda, you should never have to worry about BV again and never have to douche or insert or use gels or creams or any drugs. Good luck and good health to you.
