sassy and jewels.... thanx for answering so fast. I agree w/ jewels i'm going to call my dr tomorrow and have her give me a prescription for flagyl metro gel or whatever and some diflucan on the side just in case. You know i realise now that i've been neglecting this whole thing for a while. I was feeling a lot better when i was doing all the supplements and natural things and eating well .... so i'm going to get the meds and go back to a life of organic food and soap. and the all the supplements.... i've come to terms w/ it being a long term thing.... no magic cure :-(
ps honey i thinl i'm going to try out the flaxseed oil....too

Bincha2: I still use the TTO a couple of times a week just to help with the discharge control. It helps me stay drier, although I'm not entirely sure why. It doesn't however keep BV away for me...sadly, the smell returns.

Bincha, I still have the TTO, mostly only use the mouthwash before oral, and the TTO before and after sex. Don't really know why I'm using it, don't think it really helped much. And I never bought the Primal Defense, so can't say anything about that. I'm waiting for my prescription to get here sometime this fricken year, so I can at least kill this shit, and then try to maintain it again. Sassy, you should definatley try the vitamin C, because remember we are all different. I have full blown B.V. right now, and again, I truly don't think these preventative things we do, take it away. That's just been my experience.

Well, I wasn't going to use the vitamin C after what jewels said but I feel like I must give it a try since a couple of you had good results...I hope my vagina doesn't burn off.

Well, everything has been going pretty well over here.I think my body should be back to normal by the next year.Every year this thing seems to get better.I have no discharge and whenever I see something I just slap a vitamin C pill up there and it goes away.I think this is the best treatment ever.More sex please! :-)
quietmadness:I understand how you feel.I think we all do!(This BV thing is enough to induce madness!)

I guess "uncomfortably dry" would be the phrase I'd use.

The dryness only lasted for about 5 hours, though. I'm ovulating, however, and there's always "extra" discharge when that's going on.

I'll use it just for that one benefit, though. I get so tired of walking around with the pantyliners on all the time.

This BV thing is enough to induce madness!

Sassy, if you read up on it, it is one of the biggest side effects of using Vitamin C. I didn't get a yeast infection, just burning so bad that I can't explain it, and the smell is there 10 fold. There's a website you can go to that sells Vaginal Vitamin C made by "Total" and it is only 250mg. So, the 500 may be to hard on the kitty. At least it was on me. And to bleed, after not having periods for over 5yrs, is scarey. I'm debating on buying the Vaginal Vitamin C, but, still waiting for the other crap to get here. The Flagyl or whatever it's called. Once I'm done with that, I'm headed to the doctor. I'm bloated, and have other things going on now. Oh, had sex today, and no smell. So, who knows, maybe the vitamin c did work, or is it the Apple Cidar Vinegar pills I found, which by the way, causes diahrea. (Just an FYI) lol. Bye

neverending: Thanks for the info. Do you think I should use an applicator to put the vitamin C in my vagina? I'm not sure how to deep to insert it...I was planning on doing it overnight. Did anyone else experience yeast infections? I just am very hesitant to trade in BV for yeast, if you know what I mean.

Ok, girls!

I went to the Post Office today and picked up the Jamu stick.

It came in what I thought was a "plain brown wrapper," but--when I turned the package over, there it was--plain as day--"herbal soap" labeled on a BRIGHT GREEN sticker. Yeah.

So, it's shaped like a cigar. Tapered at both ends. Off white, with a few specks in it that are black/grey. Has no scent. It's not like a "soap." It's more like a stick of chalk, but doesn't have the feel of chalk. It's more like a stone, in fact!

Ok, so I'm supposed to stick this thing in there, about 2 inches I guess, and swish it around, then rinse thoroughly.

Yeah. So I wet the stick, after thoroughly cleaning the "area." I insert it, and swish it around, for probably like 15 seconds or so.

What I immediately begin to notice, is that my girl starts to "grab" onto this thing, right? Like she's lost ALL of her lube/discharge, whatever.

Then I pick up my trusty clear water douche, and go to rinse this stuff out of there. Yeah. Suddenly, there's no acceptance of the douche nozzle on the part of my girl. Almost none. She doesn't have room for the nozzle, nor does she want to even think about it. She's dry, and tight...but not like "muscle tight," more like--hard to explain--and it's a kind of--DRY tight.

Ok. So I'm rinsing her with the plain water, and then I go to dry off the Jamu stick. Like I said, it's more like a stone/chalk like substance. I notice a little bit of the chalky liquid (very miniscule amount) on my fingers, but that just seems to be the stick itself melting away a little with water. It rinses clean very easily, and washes off my hands quickly, with plain water. It's all dry now and back in it's box.

I'm inclined to think at first that it's alum. But, coming from an old Southern background, I've done my share of canning vegs/fruits.

When you touch alum to your tongue, it immediately begins to draw and tighten on your tongue, and it stays there for a while, with that effect.

This is not alum. This stuff is very sour tasting, and does not have a "drawing up" effect on the tongue. Nor does it have a lasting taste. (I only touched the tip of my tongue to the thing, to see if indeed, it was just plain alum...)

I don't know what to expect, but after that initial use, I can say that my girl's all nice & dry. EERILY DRY. I have almost forgotten what it feels like to be free of a discharge.

If all I get from this thing is *freedom from a DISCHARGE* for a while--it's *WORTH THE PRICE* of admission for me!

As for the odor? I'll have to give that a few days to see. Right now, (4 hours past using the stick) she's odor-free...but that could just be from a good cleaning.

I'll let Y'all know more, as I will use this thing for a while & see what happens!

Hi ladies,

I've been missing in action for a few months. Wanna know why....i thought i was cured. Then...one night...i had sex....and BOOM! my "stuff" exploded!...just kidding. but that sure as hell what it feels like. i was doing the cranberry juice, vitamin, yogurt regimine. I cant tell if the irritation is yeast or BV. Now...i've got to pay to go the doctor. Since when has it started to cost to have sex. I missed the memo that read "have sex, pay the doctor". Also, could it be that i soaked after sex in epsom salt that has caused the irritation? Thoughts?

neverending: What kind of vitamin C did you buy? Is it like tablet or a gel kind of thing?? How much did you use it? I'm worried about it causing a yeast infection. Do you guys think that's what helped you get more normal down there?
