What other OB/GYNs won’t tell you about BV

Shannon Klingman, Inventor of Lume

If you have ever been diagnosed with BV (and wonder if it’s back every time you notice odor day to day) chances are you were given an antibiotic you didn’t need.

Physicians actually overdiagnose BV 61% of the time and yeast vaginitis 73% of the time!

That means you have a better chance of flipping a coin and getting the diagnosis right than going to your doctor.

As an OB/GYN, I was frustrated seeing so many patients going home with antibiotics that many times they didn’t need.

Why Does This Happen?

The short story is that BV is an imperfect diagnosis. It’s very subjective, and far too often it’s based on a hunch the physician may have.

For instance, if a physician detects a fishy odor during the examination, the assumption is BV right off the bat.

It turns out that the odor that forms with BV is exactly the same as the odor that forms on the outside of our bodies. The everyday external odor from intercourse, with our periods, or from menopause is indistinguishable from the odor that occurs with BV.

Finally… A natural home remedy that works

An external odor should be treated with an external remedy. And it should be one that women can use on their own at home.

That’s exactly why I developed Lume.

Lume is a natural deodorant for underarms and private parts that controls odor for up to 72 hours.

You might be thinking – “What?! A deodorant for my private parts?” Let me explain.

As a gynecologist, I initially developed this product as a solution for my patients, and it turns out it’s a superior underarm deodorant as well.

Lume is a patented product that’s unlike anything else on the market. It doesn’t use fragrances to cover up odor – it actually stops odor before it starts. It’s a cream that blocks bacteria from digesting bodily fluids that lead to odor.

In our clinical testing, we’ve found that Lume virtually eliminates odor in intimate areas:

If you have concerns about odor, there’s a good chance it’s external and could be resolved at home by using Lume.
