swissmiss, letnia-- thank you for confirming this peroxide treatment. I've been doing a wash and sort of douching with the perio-bottle and now day 2-- I am not NEARLY as itchy and the smell is much less. I still feel sticky however. And yeah after having sex is how I was SURE I had something going on. So. Unfair.
I've read douching while pregnant can be dangerous? Maybe that's a myth like so many things. If I am swabbed positive for BV should I avoid the antibiotics? They usually work well for me generally speaking. Though i am very sensitive to them. Last time I was RXd I had my first ever UTI right before getting pregnant and the pills made me so sick. I stopped taking them after like 3 days.
I could bet that THIS is why I have BV to begin with. AAAARG.
