hi everyone. i've been reading so much online lately about bv because i want to get rid of it!! my name is christina and i'm 21. and my doctor told me i had bv in august and since then i've been on flagyl 3 times, metrogel once and clindesse twice, not to mention all the prescriptions for yeast infections caused from the antibiotics.
needless to say, i'm done with prescriptions. i was reading about boric acid and i was going to try that first but now i think i will try the peroxide. but i have a few questions. i read about how you should insert lactobacillus (sorry if i'm not saying the right thing) because you need to help the good bacterias grow too? i'm kind of confused actually so i'm probably not making any sense but what should i be doing in addition to the hydrogen peroxide?
right now i'm on flagyl. tomorrow is my last day. i'm getting my period next friday so i think i will do the peroxide after my period to keep the bv from coming back. right now i don't feel like i have it but i'm sure it will come back after my period.
i think it's crazy that you can get better advice from women on forums who aren't doctors than you can get from doctors. i haven't been having any good experience with doctors at all lately.
ok sorry for writing so much!
