l hav had b.v. a million times over the years, it just kept coming back. l tried it all, b.v. has caused me more grief than i can describe..i was so sick of taking medicine and trying things that dont seem to kill it for good! so i am more happy than i can tell u women to share a couple things that i hope can cure u of this! i had luck with boric acid inserted vaginally. now remember ladies, if u are having unprotected sex with a guy who's semen is altering the ph balance inside your vagina, u WILL keep getting it. the ph imbalance is what makes it possible for bv to breed in the first place. people blame this on everything from diet to soaps or the type of panties u wear. i personally dont feel like changing my whole diet, shower regime, etc. so, without further hesitation...
bee propolis- insert capsule vaginally for a few days.
bee propolis is effective against several strains of resistant bacteria.
mesosilver- i did EXTENSIVE research, this is one of few true colloidal silver solutions, u get alot for a low price. this will not cause the reaction where your skin turns gray/blue! this is proven to wipe out the bacteria in b.v., also yeast infections. u can try taking it internally ( it's effective against MANY viral,bacterial,fungal, infections.) or wet a tampon with it, insert and leave overnight.
please tell me if u have success with either of these, ladies! good luck!!!

What are the symptoms of BV? I've always been under the impression that I am very prone to yeast infections (which I am), but this EXTREME itchiness has been going on way too long and often starts up again VERY shortly after using a YI treatment. It is so itchy I can't help but scratch, though I try very hard to resist for as long as possible. Then I can't stand it anymore and I scratch it raw until it becomes painful. It's very red and looks very dry, but it's not. Please help! At my last physical I mentioned to my doctor that I am always itchy and use a veterinary cream (corticosteroid, antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory) on the areas that itch. He said that was okay (to use the cream). There's also a human form of this cream, but I don't remember what it's called. I've found it to be very helpful, but not a permanent "cure".
I have been trying to get rid of BV for ages now thanks for the tip. I am sure my husbands sperm is reinfecting me the whole time, so will it work even though i will continue to have sex with him, i have not allowed him near me for a few days now and he is going insane but i am so afraid of getting it again.
Shellym...I have reacurring BV infections as well! So i know what you are going through. Have you ever had your husband treated with BV medication as well? I had my boyfriend treated and I'm going on 4 months infection free. I don't know if thats the reason I have not had one yet, but it's worth a shot. Maybe his sperm keeps infecting you because he is infected as well. Maybe you already have had him treated, but if not just thought I'd throw a suggestion out there! Good luck!! I know how frustrating it is!
Well I'm happy to say I finally found out what was wrong in my case. I just have a dermatitis in that area. I got the "people" version of that cream. It's called Viaderm-KC (triamcinolone acetonide/neomycin). It's a corticosteroid, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal cream. It's good for any kind of itchiness. For me this cream is a God-send! Even if there is an infection (yeast or bacteria) it will still be okay to use this cream.
My mom went to her doctor today reguarding BV and the doctor didnt prescribe her anything this time. they told her regular yogurt on a tampon works about as good at the meds they give?! Who woulda thought anyone heard of this?
Yes, I have. It works for yeast infections also. I was told to fill an empty tampon applicator with plain yogurt and put it in the freezer to harden then insert it before bed. I never tried it, but I know someone who did.
