Has anyone tried FloraFemme for B/V and/or yeast infections?

No, I haven't, but I would try it if I was dealing with that. That was highly recommended by the well informed people at the natural food store I used to go to when I thought I might have a yeast problem. If you haven't researched, there's lots of info about it online.

Honestly, the fastest fix I've ever had for yeast infections has been Boric Acid suppositories.  During my last pregnancy my midwife told me it was their recommended treatment and I've been using them for years.  They are also very easy to make and substantiallly cheaper than any of the fancy yeast infection treatments I've found in natural food stores that never worked for me anyway.  One bag of gel capsules + one jar of boric acid powder has literally lasted me years.

I've heard boric acid can work well as above poster said. I would still take the probiotics. I know they are helpful and they are overall good for ya.
