Re: BV!! I Keep Getting It!
Oh my Gosh! I'm so sorry you're going through this! I have too but I finally found a solution after years of dealing with Bv and the odor etc. ! I have done a bunch of research and can tell you what's going on.
Women who get BV - their bodies have an inability to naturally repopulate their vaginal flora because their digestive tracts don't have what they need. Recent clinical studies show that there is a direct link between what is in your gut, and how healthy your vagina is. The study even showed a cure of BV in women who orally took a specific combination of probiotics over a 30 day period. L. acidophillus and l. fermentum.
What people don't know is that when you take normal probiotics, they're killed by the stomach acid, so they never make it to your gut. After trying other products I finally found one that not only had the right strains in it, but others to help keep a healthy digestive and vaginal tract. It even has a protective coating on it to make sure it gets through your stomach intact. Since I've been taking it, my symptoms are totally gone!
Now, having had BV in the past, I really recommend getting to your doctor as soon as you can, just because BV can cause some serious problems, but I would try the probiotic thing in the meantime, and don't be too quick to go on antibiotics, because that just destroys the stuff in your belly, creating more infection, needing more antibiotics and then the circle begins.
Good luck! Hope to hear back from you!
