Everyone, I just found out that bacterial vaginosis or leuchorrea are often misdiagnoses for a parasitic infection called trichomoniasis.
After being diagnosed with leuchorrea and being told to take a dose of 10 billion probiotics daily (this didn't work, but helped a little) I went to another doctor and was told that I had BV. I was then prescribed an intra-vaginal gel which worked for probably less than a week before symptoms returned. I have been investigating ever since (3 years). I have taken everything I can get my hands on.
Garlic helps. Folic acid helps only slightly (be careful here... Large amounts of folic acid taken daily can be dangerous if you do not take other B vitamins with it!)
I have FINALLY found something that seems to be working. Because I cannot use the product name, I'm going to give you a list of what is in it. If you pull this up on an internet search you should find the product. This is a cleanse, and I found relief from symptoms almost entirely after 6 days. I am on this formula now and will continue until my bottles are gone. I wish you all the best. I know this is horrible. YOU CAN FIND THIS PRODUCT AT MOST HEALTH FOOD STORES and if they do not have it ask them to order it for you. I work in one so I know.
Ingredients in Cleanse:
CANDIDA CLEANSE WITH BLACK WALNUT AND COPTIS
WHILE YOU ARE CLEANSING TRY TO AVOID SUGAR AND CARBS AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. EAT AS MANY VEGGIES AND YOU CAN GET YOUR HANDS ON. LIMIT MEAT CONSUMPTION AND DO NOT EAT A LOT OF FRUIT. EAT YOGURT EVERY DAY.
the good thing about this cleanse, is that coptis (and many other ingredients in it) has been proven to help cure bv, leuchorrea, trichomoniasis and yeast. So no matter what your condition is, you will probably benefit here and it may just cure you.
Good luck everyone.
ps: wash your underwear, towels and washcloths (anything that touches the area) with bleach/detergent. Trichomoniasis can live outside of the body and will likely spread to others using your towels etc. Also, please have your partner take this cleanse as well, as they are likely infected if your fluids have been mixing during intercourse. No one wants to talk about this condition, but it is essential to your relationship that you let your partner know what is going on. Be honest and open. Drink lots of water.
