Ah, : Ah, why don't women know about the benefits of a vinegar and water douche? If you can change the ph of the vagina, the flora will change back to normal. One hot water bottle, one quart of warm water, a tablespoon of white vinegar, and miraculously that nasty odor is gone. Repeat this treatment every few days or whenever you notice an abnormal vaginal odor. Use of a probiotic (any lactobaccillis containing yogurt by mouth or in vagina) will help to restore the bacteria that belong there. The pain of intercourse probably has little to do with the vaginosis. If ovaries were removed at the time of hysterectomy, you probably also have atrophic changes of the vaginal tissues. Your doctor can prescribe an estrogen vaginal cream that will help to toughen up the tissues and restore normal lubrication. You are not doomed. ...Read more
