BV/Yeast Infections/ Vaginal odor period! (Think I've found some answers)

Recommended Posts

There is no doubt that having GH is a pain, even without outbreaks. But, what has tormented me more than GH is that darn bacteria vaginosis! I have spent so much money on antibiotics (which research shows actually contributes towards the problem) that I should have stock in the pharmaceutical industry. I'm not sure if I've been bv free in years. If I am, it's only for a few days. When I don't have it, I still have some kind of issue going in down there (odor, itch, discharge).:(

Many of you have complained about vaginal issues as well. Seems GH throws the PH balance off. Good news! I've spent many hours researching other alternatives to cure BV. I've come across natural remedies, but never tried them. After much research, I'm on it. The following link(http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/bacterial_vaginosis19.html ) contains testimonies of many women battling BV, yeast, and other vaginal issues. A combination of HYDROGEN PEROXIDE DOUCHE, FOLIC ACID and ACIDOPHILUS seems to be the cure described as most effective. (Of course, each person's body will respond differently, so you have to see what works for you). In addition, taking a probiotic daily will help maintain a healthy vaginal flora. Probiotics specifically for women's heath are best (ex- femdophillus). The capsules can also be inserted vaginally.

I suggest reading the site to get detailed info on the proper supplements to buy as well as the regimen to follow. Generally, douching is a no-no; however, it is highly recommended in treated imbalances in the vagina (see below). Also a diet including plain live culture yogurt (should contain lactobacillus) is highly effective. Inserting it vaginally is even better.

Utilisation of hydrogen peroxide in the treatment of recurrent bacterial vaginosis.

The authors have evaluated the real efficacy of using hydrogen peroxide for previously treated recurrent bacterial vaginosis that is resistant to other forms of treatment. METHODS: The study included 58 women aged between 18 and 42 years old. Vaginal irrigations with 30 ml of hydrogen peroxide (3%) were prescribed in the evening for a week. The follow-up was carried out 3 months after the end of treatment. RESULTS: The results clearly show that the use of hydrogen peroxide in vagina can eliminate the main symptoms of bacterial vaginosis, and in particular the malodorous leucoxanthorrhea in 89% of cases at 3 months after the end of treatment, a result that is comparable to that obtained using metronidazole or clindamycin as a vaginal cream. Moreover, hydrogen peroxide facilitates the restoration of normal vaginal bacterial flora (represented by H202-producing lactobacillus) in 100% of cases and normal acid pH (pH<4.5) in 98% of cases; it also fosters the disappearance of clue cells from vaginal smears and anaerobic pathogenic flora from vaginal secretions in 100% of cases. The amine test became negative in 97.8% of cases. All results underwent statistical analysis and were found to be statistically significant. CONCLUSION: Hydrogen peroxide represents a valid alternative to conventional treatments for recurrent bacterial vaginosis, and associates the absence of collateral effects with low costs, excellent tolerability and real therapeutic efficacy.

I've started treatment tonight. Keeping my fingers crossed!

      Hi guy,  Just diagnosed and trying to move on with my life. Understanding to prevent further outbreak, we would be best to stay actively healthy both mentally and physically.  Due to my nature of work, I am always under pressure. Should I plan on quitting and look for another job that is well suitable for my current condition or is manageable?  :,)

      I have no choice, I have tried everything on this planet regarding holistic approach. Nothing work so far. Now I am on Neem, does not work. I just keep trying new things as I go along. I believe some like me actually have a very strong immune system (have not been sick since I can remember, maybe 9-10 years) but my immune system does not recognise my HSV, so it just does what it wants, thats why the continuous OB's.  Don't think about ending life, life is to priceless. This is not cancer. Try to date a guy who have it as well, then there would be something you could fight together.
