Hello, I am 32 and 5 weeks postpartum and have symptoms of BV. I was treated with a 7 day clindamycin vaginal cream. Symptoms came back 2 days after course. I then used boric acid suppositories for 7 days and symptoms are coming back after a couple days even though swab came back negative halfway through boric acid treatment. I’m looking for something safe to use while breastfeeding. I know the website recommends gold but I just want to verify that it is safe for breastfeeding women. Thank you!!
During breastfeeding the milk promoting hormone prolactin increases while estrogen decreases. As a result, vaginal dryness and atrophy occurs due to reduced estrogen. Vaginal atrophy in turn reduces the resistance against infection. BV commonly occurs.
Since you are on breastfeeding, the cause of BV is due to vaginal atrophy. Clearing bad bacteria alone may not stop the infection from coming back because your atrophy still exists and resistance is still low.
The right approach is to clear bacteria and reverse vaginal atrophy at the same time.
NeuEve is the only product that can do both.
All NeuEve products are safe for women, including breastfeeding women, because NeuEve is made with all-natural, hormone-free, and food-grade organic ingredients. To date, over 100,000 women have used NeuEve safely without any side effects.
Below is the suggested NeuEve formula for you:
For the first 12 days: 1 pack of NeuEve Gold (4 suppositories). Use 1 suppository every 3 days. The first treatment period is 12 days.
If by day 12, your BV is cleared (~90% of chance), you can switch to the maintenance mode. Using 1 Gold suppository per week, skipping the menstrual period week. One pack is good for a month of health maintenance. You need to do maintenance for at least 3 months. If you do not see BV coming back for 3 months, you may be BV free for a long time.
If by day 12, your BV is not cleared (~10% of chance), you can continue using NeuEve Gold once every 3 days for clearing BV until your BV is cleared.
If after you use 3 pack of NeuEve Gold, your BV is still not cleared (~1% of chance), you may have a stubborn case of BV. You may move up a level to BV Clear (https://www.neueve.com/products/bv-clear). This article shows you how to use BV Clear to clear a stubborn recurrent BV:
The previous NeuEve Gold is not wasted because they help you reverse vaginal atrophy and boost your resistance to infection and tolerance to the stronger treatment product like BV Clear.
When you are on breastfeeding, BV Clear cannot be used upfront because you have vaginal atrophy and may feel burning when you use BV Clear. But if you use NeuEve Gold first for a few months, your atrophy will be reversed and you will be able to tolerate the stronger product BV Clear if your BV is a stubborn type and not cleared.
After your BV symptoms are cleared, your job is only completed by one half. The other half is maintenance to stop BV from coming back.
If you like NeuEve Gold, you can subscribe to it for long-term health maintenance until you wean breastfeeding. Your atrophy and BV will be gone for good.
Please print out this letter as a hard copy so that you can follow the instructions listed above.
