Ladies, I am a 58-year-old post menopausal woman experiencing BV. I went to my doctor for diagnosis; and, $500 worth of lab test later found out it was a Gardnerella bacterial infections. I went the Flagyl route which did nothing. I was then prescribed a vaginal cream anti-biotic which worked until I had intercourse again with my man. Then the BV was back. My man and I are monogamous, so I don't have any worries about him playing around. This all started after we had been together for about 5 months. I have never had this with any other sex partner, but had it with him when we were seeing each other as youngsters. I was beside myself when my symptoms came back again and dreaded returning to my doctor. The expense and probable results made me doubt I would be satisfied. I did some on-line research and tried the Vitamin C route. One 500 mg tablet inserted inside for 5 days, and the infection was gone! Probably should have quit after 4 days because I had some irritation after 5 days, but I used some VH Vaginal Health prebiotic suppositories to replenish my vagina, and I am totally discharge free. I plan to insert a Vitamin C tablet after intercourse and see if I can prevent the infection from returning. So far, so good!
