  • LaurenB - holy crap it worked!Well like many other cursed women I've been dealing with Bacterial vaginosis for over five years. I literally have tried everything the doctor threw at me, from antibiotics to vaginal inserts to neglecting my husband out of fear sex would make it worse. I recently looked at my medical records because I switched insurance companies and I have been treated for BV 23 times!!!! As I just mentioned I switched insurance companies and was assigned a new OBGYN. She quickly suggested probiotcs and said it would work. I went home ordered the pills and waited an agonizing 4 days to get them. I have been using them for 5 days now and it is a 100% difference from before. I couldn't believe how quickly it helped. I tried the ultimate test with my husband and to my surprise I was still A OK. My BV was really bad, I was showering twice a day with no relief from the symptoms.
    The only downfall, and I'm not sure this has anything to do with the pills. I noticed that using the bathroom (number 2) I would have bad gas cramps that lasted a few minutes. This is a walk in the park compared to BV!
    I hope this helps. I thank god I finally found an OBGYN that knew her stuff!
