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!

      Lol, a thousand guinea pigs.  I think you raise a good question (though it's a bit sad that a 1000 guinea pigs might have to die). But every every preclinical study I know, also uses a fairly small number of lab animals.  It's rarely more than a few dozen.  For example, the EDITAS proof of concept ocular herpes solution tested in 36 animals, of which some got placebo, and some got AAV with no editors.  So testing in only a handful of animals seems to be the norm.  So I wouldn't read into that caveat too much, if I were you.  But whether that vaccine can ever enter human trials, that I don't know.   Some things I've read seemed to suggest that ppl are kind of down on the idea of testing vaccines, on account of the failures.  I hope that's not the case.

      Yeah @Lukeherpwalker I agree. Many people just see the igg tests and listen to random internet strangers about their results being from a childhood infection and on their mouth.  The fact is I got genital herpes because someone didn’t want to believe their HSV1 was genital when it was. Blood tests never can tell you location. Fact. Let’s deal with facts instead of highly unsupported opinions in the name of a life long virus shall we?

      hi Imsu, No problem about the questions.  Sangamo is a research stage stem cell and gene editing company.  They currently are not researching HSV.  But they have a gene editing and stem cell stage 1/2 trials going on regarding HIV.  The gene editing solution they are using is zinc fingers. https://www.sangamo.com/pipeline/partnered-programs And no problem about your questions.  Feel free to also inbox me if you like and want to continue the conversation.  I'm not an expert, but I've done my research.  Cheers.

      I’m more than sure you got it from your current boyfriend. 5 days later and you have an outbreak in the anal where you did it for the first time. I had a vaginal outbreak 5 days after unprotected sex with my ex. I knew I was from him because of the negative tests I had during my outbreak. Unfortunately he was i denial about the situation and didn’t support me at all. Your boyfriend may not have been aware that he had it. And he may also lie about it if he finds out he actually does carry the virus. Hopefully he gets tested and things get sorted out for the both of you.

      If you are having genital symptoms. . and test positive for hsv1 its very relevant. Op may indeed have ghsv1
