Man I thought I was doomed to reek like a fresh cracked can of starkist tuna for life. About 1 yr ago I moved from the south to the north, got a full time job and gained 30 lbs. besides that- my life was the same. Same boyfriend of 3 yrs same sex same wardrobe( ok fine.. Bigger pants n panties but same fashion concept) is always showered every day, used whatever soap I felt like and never had any issue. All of the suddenly, months after I moved away from the charmed life is always known, my lady kitty turned into a catfish. I was mortified to pee I the bathroom close to my cube, bc I was scared my coworkers might run into my stall after me and smell my nasty self. It went on for over a year. I'd wake up, wash my privates w frangrance free soap) that's an interesting smell on its own) and I'd put on fresh panties. By 10am, I could smell the fish fry when I peed. By 1 pm, I was certain anyone I walked by could smell it . So I went to the doc, 3 times, and got 1 weeks worth of metro gel each time. Worked for about 1 week, no smell, no weird crampy achey feeling. And then back to reality after the honeymoon. I tried tea tree oil, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and putting lacto pills up inside that ratched thing. All of it worked for a day or 2... Then came back just as as or worse. I was doomed. Then I found rephresh gel. Use it every other day for 1 week, then every 3rd night for another week. Then-- use it after ur period until the smells gone. And it finally stays gone!!! Metro pills and fell kills most of the fish causing bacteria, except for the ones that are like immune to it. The rephresg raises ur ph, to a level that the bacteria can't grow. After 2 wks all signs of them will be gone. Putting other acids in ur vag will help raise the ph initially, but vinegar won't cling to ur walls. Ur regular discharge will push all the acid out in a day or 2, and the rotting salmon scented stuff will be swimming back in no time, since ur body didn't get to strangle it out. Represh gel suffocates in and makes ur junk inhospitable. Now go, spend $30 to knock it out and buy a 3rd stash to keep on hand after ur period. One other helpful tip: if u take a sip of beer wile on metro, if u can hold off on puking, really gives one an incredibly crazy buzz. I'm not recommending this part tho. Just the reprhesh .last tip: lose weight and don't keep a heater on the floor at work, blowing at ur vag. I think my legs were touching and not letting my girl breathe bc y legs had gotten so fat(there's more reasons than looking hot to try to get thigh gap) and then, bc my workplace thnks it should model its climate after Antarctica, I used a floor heater 24/7.. Causing my hoo ha to sweat and suffocate. It was a bv cocktail. That, and shoving size 5 panties over a size 10 ass. Good luck!!
