Gotta think CURE not MANAGE

I can't believe it's been 4 months since I've written, the time goes by so fast and still this problem hangs around. I have decided to renew my efforts and start seriously treating this problem like I want to cure it. I'm tired of just managing it and currently I'm not sexually active so maybe right now is a good time to deal with the inconveniance of a serious treatment. I have been using the three treatments that I have at my disposal rather lazily. When I have odor or discharge or itching or all three, I'll use something just to get rid of it for awhile. I'm not very good about regular routines and remembering to do something every night or every morning. The three treatments I have been using are Hydrogen Peroxide "douches", Vitamin C tablets vaginally, and L-Reuteri tablets vaginally. Alll three treat a different aspect of BV infection - Hydrogen Peroxide serves to kill the unfriendly bacteria and immediately dispatch the odor, Vitamin C helps restore the acidity level, and L-Reuteri helps replace the friendly bacteria. So, instead of just using one of these when the symptoms are at their worst, I'm going to try a 7-day treatment with all three working together and try for an actual cure. Of course, while I may achieve a long-term symptom-free state - the question remains as to what will happen when sexua| activity resumes. Nonetheless, here goes. For 7 days: I'm going to start with Hydrogen Peroxide and do a very thorough wash, then I will use a Vitamin C tablet at night and an L-Reuteri tablet in the morning. I'm only going to use the Hydrogen Peroxide the one time in the beginning because I don't want it to wash away the effects of the tablets or to kill off any of the good bacteria (I don't know if it will or not, so won't chance it). At the end of the week I'll give myself another week and see if I'm still symptom free without any treatment. After my period I will have to check again because that is a time it usually is bad. I'll let you all know how it goes.
