I cannot believe your gyn told you to douche!!!! I have been told to NEVER douche as it disrupts the PH balance in the body and can actually cause yeast and BV. Your gyn actually told you that if you douche it will restore the PH balance. Why is he/she having you do this?

Actually Daisy drs will suggest douching under the right situations and apparently this is one of those times. It can be safe to do as long as it isnt too often and with the correct solutions.

Peach, I suggest talking to a pharmacist to see what he/she might suggest is better for this on your choices. You could also talk to the nurse at your dr's office to see what she/he has to say.

What do you mean by the "one with the mother" - is that a different type of liquid solution?
