Thanks so much, S. Your response was really helpful. I may not do the rephresh, but continue with the boric acid as I believe they both accomplish the same goal– normalize ph and return the vagina to a happy acidic place that discourages yeast and bad bacteria from growing. My only concern is that, originally, my ph was totally normal and I still had bv. Only in the last week did my ph become abnormal. So I’m just concerned that “fixing” my ph won’t fix my problem since I had normal ph and BV for a while. But I’ll keep persisting. I’ll also take the digestive enzymes that were suggested and I need to start taking my calcium/magnesium/zinc pill. I think Zinc may be related to recurring infections? I’m not sure.
Anyway, I definitely will NOT take the oral antibiotic and will use the Metrogel if after some more time I still have no success. And great advice about the diflucan– I will take that after, not during. I actually got 1 new diflucan and have an old one I haven’t taken, so I have 2. Should I take both if I use the metro?
