ok ladies..bring your vaginas and your questions, concerns, and tips.. maybe we can learn something from eachother..it doesnt have to be all about the vagina but this group will be very graphic so for those of you who cant handle it,,,bye, go somewhere else and gripe..this is our version of dr. oz but this is dr. mom ok..so let's get started ladies! 


so my tip of the day is:

BV (Bacterial Vaginosis)

Caused by offset of pH balance of the vagina. (from sex, perfumes, soaps and other stuff i cant think of right now cuz its 6am n i cant go bk to sleep lol) And can have a very unpleasant and embarassing fishy odor and change in discharge texture. This is a very common thing ladies so dont be ashamed or embarrassed.

Home remedy (and i've done it so i know it works)..plain yogurt with live active cultures. This will create the proper environment (pH balance) for good bacteria to grow and the bad bacteria will rid itslef

Shoot ladies! What questions do you have? Feel free to share whatever you like!

  kiss Be u n do u boo!

 I think you can do that for yeast infections too.

 Sounds like BV. You will just get on some antibiotics for about 2 weeks. No biggie. I would suggest for now use ant bacterial wash and wash after every time you use the bathroom. Even when you just pee. Only use white cotton crotch undies and make sure they aren't tight. I been there and done that. It is common.

Thanks for the advice. I wash myself a lot and notice it makes the smell worse. I dont use antibacterial soap though.

I think ni might have a UTI but it doesn't hurt like before or sting, well just a little after I pee and then I see white stuff lingering with my pee. I think it might be an infection

I created a post in another group bout a recent issue. When my period is ending, the smell is horrifying. Like WTH! It happended this month and last month. The responses were ph balace, bacterial and shift in my diet. After it fully ended, I was smell free. I mean I was so fresh and so clean. Now Im having a great amount off discharge. And this is after I added yogurt back into my diet

I developed BV at the end if my pregnancy, didn't notice a smell though. They tested a gush of discharge I had (thought my water broke it was so much!). One week of antibiotics and it was cleared.
