So, to finish my last series of thoughts..
After the recent changes i.e. adding fiber, trying to improve my eating habits, etc. I do feel better. My face is clearing up, and everything seems to be working properly again, then the BV problem gets worse again.
Now, mind you, it never has completely gone away in the last 2 years. It may improve, it may disappear with antibiotics (and my doctor would say every time - 'oh! it's back again!') They just don't get it. It never really was healed! My body is still screaming for balance--there is something missing that antibiotics don't replace and killing more bacteria obviously isn't the answer here folks.
Ok, my lifestyle is all over the place. I'm a Mom so the one thing you can count on is that I'm always busy. I'm not big into hanging out at the bars, I don't watch much TV, I play silly computer games - tetris type stuff - mind-numbing fodder! I should be reading a book. Anyway, I also make beaded jewelry. My lifestyle in itself is not unhealthy other than my eating habits, which are now on the chopping block.
So, 2 days into Vitamin C treatment now, things seem to be going well. There's some hope, Decieving maybe, that right now the annoying symptoms are at bay and I feel good. The true test is when I stop the Vitamin C in a week or so and monitor things.
The questions are: Will the symptoms return? does sex cause them to return? Does some other activity cause them to return (such as swimming, bike riding, hot weather / sweating), How long before they return?
Secondly, I am asking myself if I should try some sort of replenishing therapy like vaginal lactobacillus after a week of Vitamin C? The theory being that if the presence of the "bad" bacteria are low and then I introduce the "good guys" they may get a foothold and be able to re-balance my system. I have tried this before without success. The secret is getting the right kind of lactobacillus that produces hydrogen peroxide - Lactobacillus Jensenii is one, I forget the other - but that is the real key. I have looked and looked for a supplement that has one of the two specific Lacto strains and found nothing. It seems my efforts are futile (and messy, awkward, and uncomfortable) without the proper strain of Lacto.
