  • Iv had BV for 2 years!! Im sick of it.. Iv looked up BV on the net and with nearly every woman's comments it has returned! I visited my local GUM clinic where they gave me antibiotics called Metronidazole! I dont think they worked due to the fact they made me throw up due to the disgustin taste they left in my mouth. I visited my GP this week and she prescribed me the same thing which is once again making me throw up! If its always going to return then why prescribe this antibiotic? I feel like Im gonna be stuck with this for life and Im very worried due to only bein 20 years old and reading that it can make me infertile. Im lucky that I have an understanding boyfriend that isnt grossed out by it. I also read that using tampons, having sex, wearing thongs etc is a key factor in why it returns. what am I supposed to do.. Become a Nun? If anyone can help me then id REALLY appreciate it as its really getting me down.

    • I had recurring yeast infections for about a year and a half. I think I tried just about every product out there. The best one that I found was "Yeast Arrest". You have to order it online, but its actually cheaper than the products that you buy over the counter. I finally figured out what was causing my problems after going to several different doctors and being tested for everything under the sun, changing my diet and being on several different medications. My boyfirend works with a lot of chemicals at his job and apparently had not been that great about washing his hands. We starting buying him LAVA soap and my problems stopped almost immediately!! My doctor also told me that yeast arrest is often used for BV infections because of its natural ability to rebalance your Ph levels.
