Ph Testing Paper

Since around October I've been having problems with BV. I'll get rid of it for a while and my period would throw everything off and it'd come back right after. I went to the ob/gyn and got a prescription for Flagyl and took two full weeks of it. I'm not sure if it helped or not because shortly after the medication was finished, I got my period and felt the symptoms come back. I did get my pill changed at the same time from Desogen to Loestrin so hopefully the lower dose will help to keep things from changing so much.

I've been doing at home treatments which may or may not be working but I'd like to get some ph paper so I can see what's going on down there and how/when to fix it. Has anybody here bought ph paper for doing this? I seem to be having a hard time finding exactly what I need. I know Vagisil sells a kit but it's pretty pricey and when I search Amazon, most of the strips don't go far enough down into acidic levels. I'd be really grateful if somebody could point me in the right direction! I'm tired and frustrated of dealing with all this but that could be a whole different post.
