Hi EC family!
I just want to tell you how happy I am and thank you for sharing all your experiences.
It all started two years ago, after I got the worse uti! My pee was blood red, in so much pain. I went to the doctor and she told me to take cefuroxine axetil 2x/day for 7 days. My uti cleared but noticed that I was having bad discharge n fishy smell.
I tried everything to no avail. On and off it went. I took antibiotic upon antibiotic, no cure. Worse than ever. The smell was just revolting and I slowly lost my confidence in bed and stayed away from my partner. He was very supportive and tried his best to understand me but at times he would mention the smell and how embarrassed I was!
I do know what you all went through and how horribly clean you all are and yet this thing happens.
Thank God I read all your wonderful testimonies. I would like to share my experience in hope that it would help many women going through this.
- I bought probiotics specifically for womens health 9.8 billion cfu, several bottles of 3% hydrogen peroxide, tampons and a douche bottle.
- I douched at night from 50/50 mix with distlled water. Going up till I could tolerate a pure 3%hydrogen peroxide douche.
- In the morning id soak a tampon with hydrogen peroxide and insert it as far as I could and leave it for 15 minutes.
- I took one probiotic pill by mouth and I'd insert another inside my vagina pushing it as far as I can.
I did that for a week. I noticed that the smell slowly diminished.
On the second week I did not douche as much anymore coz the discharge and smell was nearly gone. I douched only twice a week n did not insert any hydrogen peroxide soaked tampon. I continued taking the probiotics. For the probiotic vaginal insert, I just opened the capsule got about a pinch of the powder n inserted it inside as far back as I could.
Also after being intimate, douched wd hydrogen peroxide and probiotic inserts were done.
Now I have zero discharge, no smell at all even my partner said the smell is gone! Plus my backache has gone as well. I'm not using any panty liners anymore. I'm cured! Thank God!
Ah it did bleach my pubic hair blond lol!
