Time for treatment again...

I'm really so tired of dealing with this problem! If anyone has a solution that I'm missing, please feel free to share it.
A couple of treatments I left out of the last post were:
Vitamin C tablets - Vaginally - I think I gave up on this one after the first time or two, but I'm trying it again now. I haven't treated with anything in several months so maybe I will have better results. I believe it works (theoretically) because it raises the acidity of the vagina, thereby killing the offending bacteria. This still doesn't solve the problem of replacing the "good guys" that have been lost but I can hope.
Something else I also tried before was Garlic tablets vaginally - this works surprisingly well but during treatment you can smell the garlic (not cool). Seems it may be gentler than the Vitamin C approach also. If I remember correctly I quit using Vitamin C after a couple days because I had some blood-tinged discharge (and it was not that time) and I was concerned that the Vitamin C may be too harsh for delicate mucous membranes, it is acidic after all. We'll see how it goes this time. I used some last night and I'll try it again for the next 7 days unless the irritation becomes bad and I have to stop. Then wait and see what happens. Sometimes after treatment the BV symptoms are very bad for a day or two and then seems to get a lot better and stays that way - sometimes for several weeks. Let's hope for that.
