    Angry Cronic Bacterial Vaginosis

    Hello, I can't get rid of my BV infection. I have been perscribed Metro..... (a common drug for this) I took it twice/day for 7 days and then they also tried giving me 4 pills all at once. Did not work!!! Has anyone else had a similar experience & how can I get rid of it??

    Have you tried any cream type meds that you place directly into the vagina?My doc told me that there is pretty much no way to get rid of BV with oral meds, only by creams that are directly inserted into the vagina.I have been on Clindamycin for the last couple of days and already feel some relief from my symptoms.Hope you find relief soon.Marcia

    BV doesn't just need treatment to cure the infection but it needs the right bacterial balance back, it also needs you to insure good vaginal health - no soap, no tampons, no purfumes, talc, harsh washing powders, tight jeans, thongs, etc. anything chemicals around your vagina should be avoided, it may have been what sparked the infection to begin with and is certainly what is carrying it on.

    Re: Cronic Bacterial Vaginosis

    I have taken oral meds and tried a cream called Metro...
    Neither one of which worked, I am now trying to balance my ph by taking something called primal defense. It can't hurt, I'm in constant pain...

    I have taking both! And they both work for me. The oral is even the best because it is going through the entire system. Maybe you need to watch what you put up there from time to time. Like if you douche or something like that. Use an anti-bacterial soap before and after unprotected sex... Hope that works.

    No, no, no on the antibacterial soap! That's how my BV got started....it destroys the protective bacteria in the vagina which can actually lead to BV. Use a gentle soap like Dove instead.
