Hey everyone,

I'm super frustrated at the moment, I've had recurring bacterial vaginosis infections for the past year my current episode of bv is really bad and is not going away. Metro gel doesnt work, flagyl doesnt work, and ive taken tindamax too... I've had at most 2 months when i didnt have the sticky white discharge and odor.  I feel disgusting and don't know what else to try, reading online i've seen so many women who just seem to have this forever :smileysad: I don't know if i should try something else, like hydrogen peroxide or boric acid... does anyone have any advice? is anyone else having this problem??

I'm so sorry you are struggling with this. I've been having trouble with yeast infections so I understand the frustration! While doing my research, I came across tea tree oil supplements. Have you tried that?

Are you taking probiotics? That might help restore some balance. I've also heard some good things about the product Rephresh though I've never used it.

Come here any time you need to vent!

I haven't used the tea tree oil suppositories. They do sell them on Amazon so check out the reviews. I think it's worth researching. I don't think there are any over the counter products that will cure the infection. I was just trying to think of ways to maintain a healthy vaginal environment after you are treated so it doesn't come back. An antibiotic is the best way to treat the infection.

By any chance, are you on the pill?
