PLEASE help! BV cures? :(

I'm almost 20 years old and have noticed a strong odor for about a little over a year now...I'm almost positive that it is Bacterial Vaginosis because although I don't have any itching or inflammation, I do have a metallic/somewhat fishy odor and it's so embarrassing! I just started a new birth control and the metallic smell has gotten even stronger, I can evem smell it through my clothes. I would really appreciate tips on how to get rid of it naturally, preferably someone who has their own experience with BV. I've been reading and apparently antibiotics are not the way to go, so anyone that has a great natural cure that would help or if you know anything that could do any good for a long term cure I would love and really appreciate the advice! Thank you so much

Re: PLEASE help! BV cures? :(

I have also had this issue and just last month my gyn told me to take three baths a week with 2 cups of vinegar. Don't add any perfumed soap to the water. She also recommended Kefir a probiotic smoothie sold in major grocery stores. I have to admit I have been faithful and the BV actually dissappeared.

Thank you so much! I just started probiotics and using a yogurt tampon so hopefully it works...I'll definitely start your methods too!
