The chances of me getting pregnant this cycle are slim, but possible. I would be 3 dpo today. Anyway I've recently realized that I've had an ongoing problem with Bacterial Vaginosis. I didn't want to take antibiotics in case I do conceive/implant and get pregnant. For the longest time its just been a yellowish watery discharge which comes and goes and I feel stupid now for not knowing how long its been going on (my guess is 3 months) but finally a couple days ago I started noticing an odor. I was HORRIFIED and worried everyone could smell me!
I read up on hydrogen peroxide and water douching being extremely successful. I think the last time I douched was like 10 years ago. Well then I read somewhere that the only thing you DONT want is to get air in your cervix. I bought a reusable douche, sanitized it and last night in the shower did my first go round. It's like a pink balloon with a screw on douche tip. I had no issues slowly douching the area. Went to bed and I cannot belive how quickly the odor vanished upon waking this morning! I was thrilled and I had read to do this morning and night for about a week with no sexual activity and to also put good bacteria up there during the day for a couple days to keep the good bacteria growing (have not actually done this part yet). Also taking garlic tablets along with my prenatal.
ANY way...this morning I did it again but there was air in the balloon twice that made these gurgling air bubble noises and I would assume pushed air into my vagina and maybe cervix? I'm now worried about two things:
1) Why is it bad to get air up there and wouldn't it come back out say if you pooped or had to bear down a bit? What is teh danger of it getting trapped?
2) If I am implanting (because of course I'm crampy today!) have I done damage? What if the air bubbles happen again whilst I douche away this BV? Is it safe to do this during this next week? I'd rather clear up the infection now then be miserable and smelly...
