|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (1)||50%|
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] My husband and I had been using the "withdrawal method" for birth control. I finally started taking the "mini pill" and he ejaculated inside me for the first time in 7 months. Three days later, I had BV. I speculate that my husband's semen changed the ph of my vagina. My doctor appointment was 4 weeks away. I bought a ph test and scored a 5.5, which indicated BV. I'm currently breast feeding my 19 month old son and do not wish to take antibiotics or other harsh medications. I stumbled upon this site and after reading success stories decided to try the apple cider vinegar. First I put two cups of apple cider vinegar that was 5% diluted into my bath water with 1 spoon of baking soda. I soaked for 20 minutes. Then I swabbed the outer and inner of my vagina with a cotton swab soaked in apple cider vinegar. It tingled and burned for a minute, but it was well worth it! I have done this for 2 days now and finally notice relief. I'm not "cured" by any means, but the burning and itching has gone away! I've also been drinking 2 spoons of apple cider vinegar with water each day. I'm hoping by the time I get to my doctor appointment the BV will totally be gone. I also ordered some acidophilus pills from the internet and hope to try those as well.
