Warning

JUST WANTED TO POINT OUT THAT ALTHOUGH THE COMBINATION OF FOLIC ACID AND PROBIOTICS, ACIDOPHILUS WORKS....USING FOLIC ACID ON A REGULAR BASIS WITHOUT ALSO TAKING A B COMPLEX OR B-12 CAN MASK A B-12 DEFICIENCY. PLEASE LOOK THIS UP AND IF YOU DO TAKE THEN JUST ADD B-12 ALONE OR A B-COMPLEX WITH IT SO YOU DON'T BECOME DEFICIENT.

OTHERWISE I TOO HAVE TRIED THIS AND IT WORKED...BUT KEEPS COMING BACK! DAMN CANDIDA! AND OH...THE DRUG OF THE DEVIL..SUGAR! ;I

TAKE CARE.

So I came across this site regarding home remedies for BV. And I bought Acidophilus (10 mg-100million active lactobacillus acidophilus) and folic acid (400 mcg). The first day I took 1 folic acid in the morning and at night. I also took 1 acidophilius in the morning and at night..and it didn't work. The next morning is was still there..so I thought maybe I should increase my dose? So I started taking 2 of each morning, afternoon, and at night..and i even inserted a capsule of acidophillus..and now the discharge is worse than before. It's still the white discharge and the odor is still there. Nothing seems to be helping..How long does it take for this work? Some girls have said overnight?? Am I taking the wrong dose?PLEASE HELP ME..I'm tired of going to the doctors and paying for meds and insurance when I'm gonna have it all over again..Someone..help me..

Hello everyone, I've had recurring BV since 2004. My doctors have given me every rx known to man... it goes away but soon comes back. I came across this website about 1 month and half ago and decided to try the acidoph & folic. I've been taking 3 (1 billion cfu's) of acidoph along with 2 (800 mcg) of folic acid in the AM and the same dosage in the PM and so far it has NOT worked. All though I'm not itching or burning, I am having that god-awful 'fishy' smell and some discharge. I'm currently engaged and all though my fiance always tells me it doesn't bother him because he loves me no matter what -- i feel like it does. This is affecting my self-esteem and I'm not as 'sexual' as I use to be because of this darn BV. I just wish it would go away. Am I not taking enough of the acidoph & folic acid? Can anyone please help!?

I have been suffering with BV for about 5 years now and have tried everything under the sun from doctors. Gets cured for a while (if that) but ALWAYS comes back. I came across this site last week and decided to give it another shot. I have been taking folic acid (800mg) and 2 acidoph (2 billion) pills in the morning and also at night for 7 days now and still NO improvement. Am I not taking enough of the pills? This has been really depressing me and is affecting my sex life. Can someone please help?

Ok, So I have had BV for a year as of now and I'm tired of the thick disacharge that keep comming out. I go to my GYNO and it seems like she keeps giving me medication that doesn't do anything to it... It seems like my BV is immune to just about anything... Nothing seems to work and I'm getting frustrated. First, My GYNO gives me metro Gel and then the Flagy Pill... Which doesn't work at all... All it gave me was a bad taste in my mouth and an upset stomach... The next visit she prescribed me something called Clindessa (I might spelled it wrong)... This didn't work either.... I'm thinking about my next visit cursing her out for not giving me something that does work... But anyway, I was doing my research online to see if I can find my own cures or remedy... And then I came across this site... When I finished reading what other women wrote... I was impressed by the result of the remedy that they've used to treat their BV.... I was happy... This made me go out and buy Folic Acid, Acidophilus and yorgurt the very next day... Which I did, and when I did... I did this, for like a week already, but yet I haven't seen any difference.... I still have the thick discharge comming out... Assuming that it would within a couple of hours or the very next day since, some wrote that when they took it they've noticed a difference... As for me, I noticed nothing!!! Am I doing something wrong?!? I took 2 Folic Acid which each pill is 400MCG, combined is 800MCG.. and took 1 tablet of Acidophilus which contain 500 billion CFU.. By the way, this one that I took is called Accu-Flora Probotic Acidophilus, which is the one that is found in yorgurt... Please can someone tell me what is wrong or anyother treatment that would work...
