I am twenty one years old, and after having discharge and a foul odor I assumed it was just another yeast infection I also treated myself for that but my symptoms never went away. And no I did not go to the doctor and get tested, I started doing research online trying to figure out what was wrong with me and how I got this nightmare called bacterial vaginosis. Nothing added up, I didn't have a new sex partner and I've been with the same guy for a year. So then I started questioning has he only been with me... Of course so I knew that wasn't the case so I continued to look into it, and I found out that the ph in semen (7.35-7.50) is higher than our ph (3.5-4.5) And me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex, so after the frustration it all begin to make sense. I first tried the 'natural remedies' I had read online, I tried the apple cider vinegar in the bath, the tea tree oil, the hydrogen peroxide and water, which all led to masking the odor for a short period of time and no discharge for a short period of time also.. Eating yogurt, drinking a lot of water, taking folic acid and acidophilus, and probiotics, even the vitamins for bacterial vaginosis. This went on for three months. I just want to say that didn't work ladies!! Not for me anyways, I was nervous but I finally breakdown and got VH essentials homeopathic BV vaginal inserts (6pack), it was $19.99 at Walmart. You use it preferably at bedtime, and I would recommend wearing a panty liner or pad to bed, because you will have discharge and a odor from the insertion. I also use the vagisil ph balance wash. And everything is back to normal all in the matter of a week, couldn't be happier. I hope this helps you ladies out.
