[YEA] Ladies I found it, yay! It's totally gone and clean clean clean! I know how terrible it is to read all of these so I'm just going to cut to the chase. I used two cups of purified water and two tablespoons of baking soda. It dissolves in about 30 seconds. I bought a douche at the pharmacy and made my own. I also didn't douche for weeks and weeks like a lot of people here did, only once and then waited for my PH to get back to normal. I think it's also important on how you do it. I normally don't douche since they say it pushes things further in so what I did was I didn't open the flow valve until it was inserted way in, that way the water flows from top to bottom vs. From the bottom up. Before this I also tried two cups of purified water and a tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar. I waited for my PH to return to normal and it didn't work. I also tried 4 cups of distilled water and 1 tablespoon of baking soda and like it was better but not completely so I knew I needed a higher concentration of baking soda. Thank goodness. Gone! There is no reason anyone should have to live with that. My symptoms were mild to none. It was only when my boyfriend was deep inside me that like I would detect a hint of bv. He said he could not detect it and the doctor said there was nothing wrong with me but I know my body! I had BV once when I was 20 so strait away I knew it was like a very faint hint of that. Detoxing and probiotics didn't work for this for me either.
Also, ladies don't think that men can't give you this. I noticed a former partner's pre-cum had a slight odor, not terrible but like a slight bv unclean smell. Go down there and check! Don't let these guys in! My present partner was married before me and his taste and smell is totally clean. I believe guys have bacteria that live in there too. Who here has noticed the second load is cleaner (with some or at least that one for me). Am I being OC? With my 'v' you better believe it! I smell every little thing. Also, I used a PH test that I bought at Whole Foods to diagnose it to be sure. You're 'v' PH is an acidic environment at about 4.5 on the scale. If it's more acid than that it's most likely yeast and they say apple cider vinegar and water is good for that. If your PH is more alkaline than it would be BV. I'm glad I did the baking soda because I was very close to using boric acid and water. Boric acid with prolonged use can be toxic although I believe it would have also been effective. I didn't want to put suppositories in there bc I read that during sex the male can actually feel the grittiness from the powder. I was going to douche instead but thankfully this worked.
