I get it every now and then, usually after having intercourse after going a period of time without having it... lol

My dr always prescribes Flagyl, bc I can get the generic for very cheap, it's a gross pill to swallow, but it takes care of the problem!

Try oil of oregano.  You can get it at the health food store in liquid and in capsules.  Take it with food, though.  You also might want to think about douching with betadine as well.

I have it constantly too.  The smell is awful and it's so embarrassing.  It went away when I was pregnant so I think it may have something to do with hormone levels.  Flagyl or metronidazole clears it up but it always comes back as soon as I have sex again.

I used to make a yogurt popsicle type thing, and then insert it like a tampon... Amazing relief, and it would cure it lol

I get it sometimes when I get my period, and sometimes it just goes away on it's own.

Have you tried a probiotic? Maybe something in your system is off?

I had it after I had my son. I used a tampon too soon. Anyway, I went to the dr, he gave me something and it went away within a few days. Never saw it again. ??? I didn't know you could be stuck with it for a long time.
