Rephresh question

OK I've been reading a lot about Rephresh so I went and bought a couple packs of Rephresh clean balance. I got these because they were less expensive and I wanted to give it a try before I committed much money. Each has a douche containing Purified water, vinegar and benzoic acid and they each contain one Rephresh vaginal gel in applicator.

I don't douche so my question is, has anyone used this particular one?

I used metrogel for BV and am still having pain and itching now also that occured during the treatment. I just want it fixed. I don't know if I still have BV or if it is yeast now so it's all guesswork and that being the case I want to do what's going to help the most. I just haven't heard a word on this two part kit and I'd like some feedback from anyone who has used it.

Re: Rephresh question

No one has tried it? I just had yet another Dr. appt for this pain and itching and after the last of "try sitz baths" and not "try gynolotramin" I am totally frustrated! I can't stand it much longer and the clinic won't even culture it since I used the metrogel to see if the BV is gone or if it's yeast or anything. I'm still eating yogurt daily in the hopes it helps with something but I don't know what else to try without irritating the tissues even more. I'm rural so there isn't an abundance of Dr.s around so I'm on my own I think.

Re: Rephresh question

I have heard about RePHresh on these boards and I read up on it on their website. I have not tried it yet. I think it was a little pricey? It did seem like a good alternative to regular douching. Is it suppose to help with any odors or something? I do not have BV or yeast, but just wanted something to help feel clean and fresh smelling.

Re: Rephresh question

I have heard that hydrogen peroxide mixed with distilled water also will work just as well as the antibiotics for bv. Have you tried that?

Re: Rephresh question

I have read up on the peroxide too for BV, I'm not sure what I have now is BV or yeast or just irritation so I haven't tried it. That's why Im upset the clinic isn't interested in culturing it. I'd like to know exactly what I am dealing with so I can treat it. I just thought the RePHresh might be nonirritating enough so it might help and not hurt the situation down below any more.
