I’ve suffered with BV before and anti-biotics for that has resulted in me being here dealing with candida! I got both thrush and BV consequetively for a year and then my digestion started getting bad so now I’m sure its candida overgrowth. I thought it was constant BV but the doctor tested me for both at Christmas and it was only thrush that was diagnosed. I agree – the symptoms were very similar!
I personally wouldnt take anti-biotics again, unless I was completely desperate. I think if you use the diet the BV would benefit too particulary the pro-biotics.
