Well, when I was 17 I became sexually active. I broke out with bc and a yeast infection (at the same time) thinking it was an STD.. I got tested and came back positive for BV and a yeast infection. The doctor prescribed a diflucan for the yeast infection as well as Metrogel. after taking the pill and using the Metrogel, the BV was gone for about 5 months. Later in the year, I took an antibiotic for strep throat and the BV came back with the worst pain ever that I had to put ice on my vagina at night. I did ONE peroxide douche a few days before I went off to college. The burning went away but the smell became VICIOUS. It tore me down. I didn't know how to get rid of it. it didn't matter how many times I showered it was still there. The gel wouldn't work, the peroxide douches would work, or inserting a probiotic vaginally. it was almost like it was there forever. I came home after the semester tired of not being able to have sex and feeling dirty because of BV. I was determined to get rid of this. I began with drinking a WHOLE bottle of lemon water with fresh lemon. After that, I took a shot of apple cider vinegar. next I took about 5 acidophilus pills, the next day I took 5 Fenugreek pills along with garlic pills. lastly I douched with peroxide but I used more than I normally would. i still have a white discharge but it is only a little! just like how it looked before BV took over my life. ABSOLUTELY NO SMELL! no burning, itching, or anything. I'm going to keep following this method. Consistency is key! you have to keep fighting this and don't give up.
