A Review of The Acidophilus Probiotic

Acidophilus Probiotic

If you’ve suffered from vaginal discharge you know how uncomfortable, undesirable and shameful it can be. I’ve been suffering from strange discharge for about eight months now. Over the past several months I’ve been to the doctor, tried antibiotics for BV, bought many other treatments over the counter and replenished my pantyliner reserve but I think I finally found the magical cure to my problem: acidophilus.

RepHresh Pro-B Review

Rephresh pro-b

If you’ve read my other blog posts, you’ll remember that I suffered from horrible discharge that nothing seemed to get rid of. I tried antibiotics, natural inserts and most recently RepHresh Pro-B pills. RepHresh is a highly debated brand when it comes to their inserts and pills; you either hate it or your love it. I’ve read other reviews before buying my own little bottle of Pro-B pills and many people seemed to swear by it and sing its praises. That’s probably why I ended up buying it – I felt that after wasting so much money on feminine hygiene products I had nothing to lose at this point. While some reviews were rather skeptical, a lot of them were actually positive. Continue reading…

VH Essentials BV Treatment Review

vh essentials bv treatment

Before I get into my review of VH Essentials BV Treatment, let me give you a little background. The first time I went to the doctor and got diagnosed with Bacterial Vaginosis, I was quite surprised. Not only had I never heard of this but nobody was able to tell me what caused it and how I could avoid this infection in the future. I took my antibiotics exactly as I was told – 2 caplets of Flagyl for 7 days. I happened to be on my period during that week, so I had no idea if the discharge was actually getting any better as I took the antibiotics. However, once I was done with both my period and the antibiotics, I quickly realized that nothing had really changed. I was still stuck with the same excessive discharge and just didn’t know what to do. It wasn’t painful and it wasn’t smelly – maybe it was just normal? But then I remembered what life was like before I noticed that discharge; before I had to wear a pantyliner everyday. This discharge wasn’t normal and I had to do something about it.

Vagisil Screening Kit Review

Vagisil Screening Kit

Let’s face it; there’s not anything much more embarrassing than going to the doctor because you’re itchy or you smell down there. I know too well the feeling of shame associated with the thought of discussing your hygiene with a stranger – especially if you’re like me and don’t have a regular OB or family doctor. Thankfully, the big manufacturers understand this as well and are now providing us women with products to help us demystify common symptoms. The Vagisil Screening Kit is supposed to do exactly just that; let you know if you have a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis or any other kind of similar infection.

Naturalamb Condom Review

Naturalamb condoms are non-latex condoms, made by Trojan, designed to prevent pregnancy. They are great for those in a committed relationship who are not concerned about STDs. They are made from the intestinal membrane of a lamb and have been around for ages. These condoms are not an effective preventative measure against STDs. Studies have proven that the tinny pores in lambskin condoms are not large enough for sperm to pass through, but are large enough for HIV and possibly other STDs to pass through. If you are in a committed relationship and are not a vegetarian, you may want to give Naturalamb condoms a try.

My husband seemed to like the fit and feel of the Naturalamb condoms much better than the polyurethane condoms. For me, it’s as close to not using a condom as you can get. It feels very natural and does not cause any irritation whatsoever. I also like the lubricant on the condom. It isn’t sticky and the condom doesn’t dry out quickly. If you like additional lubrication, both oil based and water based work with Naturalamb condoms (I prefer water based). Some people complain about the smell of the condom. They do have  a somewhat odd smell, but it isn’t nearly as strong or unpleasant as latex. Most of the time I don’t smell it. The only time I get a whiff of the smell is if my face is for some reason particularly close to the condom. I don’t smell it at all during sex. So far we haven’t experienced any problems with the condom breaking or sliding off, even after lengthy or rough sex sessions.

Naturalamb condoms are much pricier in comparison to latex or even polyurethane condoms (you’ll pay at least $20 for a box of 12). They are more expensive to make due to the fact that they are made from lamb intestine membranes. Depending on how often you have sex, the price of these condoms can really put a dent in your wallet. Some couples alternate between lambskin condoms and a cheaper condom to save money. We use Naturalamb all the time because it’s hard to go back once you get used to the barely there feeling.
