Ladies, Ladies, Ladies,
Here is what worked for me...although some of you may not like what I have to say...but here is my story: This is long but you have to read it in order to understand where I am coming from. I have spent countless hours reading tons of posts relating to this horrific problem. I have tried to find a way to get rid of this but now I can finally say 'WOW' I never thought it would go away naturally. Rome was not built in a day so you will have to work at this until it goes away, but I feel it is easy compared to other solutions. First thing first, ever noticed when you scrape your skin your body heals naturally...you don't really have to do anything? Well that's part of the secret to what helped me.
MY STORY: It all started April 2013 I became very ill with a sore throat...I was prescribed Amoxicilin for 10 days and towards the end I felt I was not getting better...so back to the Doc... she perscribes me 7 days of Z-Pak without giving me a throat culture YIKES! I know this is when it all started because I got a yeast infection and I had never had a yeast infection in my life! The raging course of Diflucan begins so the next couple of months are spent taking this (it gets worse before it gets better, by the way...over $3,000.00 dollars spent on this whole @&%#$@# process!). Guess what August 2013 no more yeast, now my OBGYN has diagnosed me with BV (WTF is BV never heard of it before!) Just for giggles let's just look at all the pills that have be prescribed over the course of 11 months April 2013 - February 2014 (by the way antibiotics were not my solution!) Starting April 12, 2013: 875mg Amoxicillin twice a day for 10 days. April 25: Z-Pak 7 days. May 2: Diflucan 150mg once a day 3 days: June 26: Diflucan 150mg 1 day. July 6: Diflucan 150mg once a day for 3 days. July 10: Terconazole vaginal cream 0.8% for 3 days. Aug 8: Tinidazol 500mg twice a day for 5 days. August 28: Clindesse 2% vaginal cream for 3 days: Sept 12 Terconazole vaginal cream 0.8% 3 days. Oct 3: Metronidazole 250mg 3 times a day for 10 days. Nov. 26: Metronidazole 500mg twice a day for 7 days. Dec. 2: Boric Acid suppositories twice a week for 6 weeks. So at the end of December 2013 I had enough and decided to go to a Acupuncturist who gave me these very expensive herbs to make into a tea twice a day that tasted like dirty socks in coffee topped off with something that tasted like NyQuil...Yuck! I did this very expensive little dance for 2 months. STILL NO IMPROVEMENT! Feb 7, 2014 was diagnosed with a UTI (WTF...never had one of these either!) More antibiotics: Nitrofurantoin 100mg 7 days...at least the UTI went away! Back to the Doc. Feb 15: Last chance prescribed Tindizole 500mg for 10 days along with Metrogel twice a week for 4 months Yikes...Yikes! So...what happened next was...I decided I had had enough of antibiotics I did not take the prescription of Tindizole and Metrogel! I was on mission to fight this without antibiotics! Ok let's backtrack a little bit to the end of December...yes this is the part where I tell you what worked for me...at this time I started taking probiotics Jarrow Fem-Dophilus once a day sometimes twice a day I also drank a green super food mix made by Green Harvest...or something like that with acai mixed with apple juice and some other Garden of Life Woman probiotic. I also purchased a Breville Juicer Jan. 15, 2014 and started juicing every day (5 carrots, 1 beet, 4 stalks of kale, and 2 apples and I split this up into 2 servings) Starting mid February I was taking every day the following 1, 5000IU vitamin D, 1 400IU vitamin E, 1 800mcg B-complex, 1 400 folic acid pill, 1000mg vitamin C, 3 cranberry pills 3 times a day, 1 Garden of Life RAW probiotic 100 billion with 1 Fem-Dophilus by Jarrow. By the way...I have not had intercourse since the beginning of June 2013...I read somewhere you were not to do this or d-o-u-c-h! The main issue here is your Immune System and boost it so your body can heal itself. So take the vitamins listed, eat Stonyfield yogurt and add slivered almonds (only this variety has the right Lactobacillus rhamnosus in it). Eat healthy organic food...stop eating sugar and sugar free drinks and stop eating fast food...BV has been linked to a high saturated fat diet! Also, go workout...this really helps! I started training for a Marathon...yes a Marathon...I told my Acupuncturist (I see her still for acupuncture only...no more nasty herbs) I was going to do anything to get rid of this thing...I was going to 'RUN' I told her...'I am going to run, I will beat this'. I started the training February 26 2014...and guess what March 10, 2014 I no longer have BV. I truly believe that the combination of the vitamins, juicing organic vegetables and fruits, eating lots of veggies and healthy foods, probiotics, acupuncture, and exercise boosted my immune system and my body was then able to recover. You don't have to train for a Marathon, just get out and work up a sweat, it will boost your Immune System!! So that's my story and how I fought BV and won! Don't give up keep fighting!
