Do you have a BV diagnosis?

I started to try yogurt plain inserted vaginally and yogurt one container orally but went ahead and did go to the Dr. and am on metrogel which hasn't done it's job after 6 days. I don't know if the yogurt would have worked vaginally but there are some studies that say it does work for BV. Peroxide has also been studied with success.

I go back to the clinic today to see what's going on with this infection I guess, so we'll see how the meds even work. I either still have flaming BV or it's turned to yeast. I know I read the pamplet and the cure rate isn't that impressive so who knows.

Don't put yogurt in your vagina!!!
It's only meant to be eaten.

(This was discussed on an episode of The Doctors a couple days ago).

Re: Does yogurt trying work to cure BV?

All metrogel did for me was give me the worst yeast infection I'd ever had in my life. It was horrible. Peroxide is the only thing that worked for me. Antibiotics worked; however only while I was taking them. And of course we know that a person can't just take antibiotics forever.
