Have you tried using really cold yogurt for the burning?Also,I avoid hot water in the shower and rinse well with cold,that seems to help.
thank you for answering..Rephresh does not bother me ...I have been using it weekly for 2 months...
I am going to stop using even no fragrance shampoo near the vaginal area...
and continue using the vagifem hormones twice a week, taking fem dolphilus and another potent probiotic by mouth too..then I am going to look for
just a NON Enteric coated.. acidolphilus at the store and insert that vaginally every night.. I hope all that keep the flora normal in the vagina..
The burning must be from menopause..I had a total hysterectomy at 29 and ovaries removed too..I took premarin hormone replacement till I was 50..
I had depression and anxiety and fibrocystic breast tissue from the hormones...they never got balanced well..
At 50 I went off all hormones...and that was a nightmare...
Hair thinning, skin dry, nervous, hot flashes all day and night
still all that is happening ..am using the vagifem vaginally to keep the
tissue from getting dryer and then setting me up for bladder and more vaginal irritation...
Do have the burning when I do not have Bv, I do burn when on Flagyl or antibiotics...so I suppose that is just menopausal changes in the vagina, don't you?
I think I found a good health board in that two people cared enough to answer my post..Thank you so much...I need the support and am here to offer help to anyone I can...
