Okay... im fed up. Im 26 and I've had "recurring" BV. At this point its not recurrent is just there. It hasn't gone away for 6 years. So basically from my memory I have been dealing with it since 2018.. its 2023 so... yeah.
It all started when i was 15 i got trich from a guy once after that nothing has been normal down there and i got that cured in 2015 and now i constantly have bv always. I think the only time i didn't have it was when i was 13... I have tried EVERYTHING under the sun.
I tried Veefresh which kind of helped, boric acid pills, sitz baths, apple cider vinegar, loose clothes, drinking excess water, changing clothes often, showering 2 times a day, changing my diet, quit smoking, eating more fruit, PH washes, antibiotics, doctor appointments, tests, treatments... NOTHING works im loosing my freaking mind and my boyfriend is starting to complain i get where he's coming from. Its ruining my life its so bad you can smell it just by sitting next to me in public.
I go to the doctor and get it treated, it goes away and then comes back 2 months later WORSE than it was before the treatment. In high school it was extremely bad. Was i like born with this or something? Why is this not going away?
My period blood smells horrid there's no forgotten tampon ir anything up there. I just want to cry... im so tired of feeling unattractive (when i know im not) and knowing people can smell me. Something has to give. I know my boyfriend is probably the cause as well since we are trying for a baby. Does anyone else deal with this?
