Hi girls, I've struggled with BV for almost 2 years now. I'm single and have stayed single because of it. I felt like there was no hope, I was so embarrassed with myself I felt like I'd never be able to be in a relationship because of what I was going through. At first it started with only a fishy smell after my period and than it went away. Than the second time it stayed for months. I was 18 at the time and should have felt more comfortable telling my mom but I'd never been good with opening up about my ladie problems because I thought that things like this never happened - UNTIL...I found this site. For another consecutive amount of months I tried different remedies to try and help cure my problem, from Apple cider vinager to yogurt tampons. The only things that really work were peroxide soaked tampons; this would take away the discharge and smell for about a day but I was scared to use it any longer because I noticed how dry I was becoming from it. The other was folic acid and acidophilus, orally taking month and vagibally inserting the acidophilus. This cured me for about 2 weeks of constantly taking the pills but the moment I stopped it crept it's way back and became even worse and more uncomfortable. Just when I thought all hope was lost, I tried the one thing I thought to be the most ridiculous. Vitamin C tablets with rose hips. Today on January 12th, I tried this for the first time. I took one orally and one vagibally (whole tablet) and waited. It's currently 3:35 in the morning and I did a little finger test to see if there was any funny smelling discharge. And what do you know, THERES NONE. I feel like crying tears of joy because I can't believe how quickly this worked. After so long I'm finally feeling like myself and found the miracle that will hopefully cure me. I'm going to get back into the gym, which I have been putting off because of my discomfort, eating heathlier than I already do and hanging with my friends or even reconnecting with old flings without wondering if anyone can smell me.
I recommend the Vitamin C tablets to anyone who's lost hope. I purchased them at my normal grocery store for $6.99CAN
I hope you girls find your cure. I've finally (hopefully) found mine.
