36 Home Remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis and Yeast Infection

BV can be so annoying. It causes an irritating discharge with fishy odor. I know how frustrating it is trying almost everything but still having recurrent BV, It's can be so annoying.

I cured my BV with Coconut oil, black seed oil, garlic, fenugreek oil with aloe vera. Try soaking a tampon with coconutoil and insert inside your Vagina when going to bed (do this 7days or 14days)injest two tablespoons of cold pressed coconutoil first thing in the morning and before bed time. One tea spoon of black seed oil once a day,I take mine first thing in the morning with coconutoil and fenugreek oil. (for fenugreek oil, one teaspoon of it in a little warm water and drink in the morning. 2 cloves of fresh garlic... chew or smash and swallow with water (for me I don't chew, I peel and slice the garlic cloves into tiny pieces and swallow with warm water) I do it last in the night with my pressed coconut oil with aloevera.

As a matter of fact, the first few days you start this remedy, you will notice your BV clearing up. Do this for a period of time to make sure your BV is completely gone. It's 100\\% natural and safe.

Thank me later.

Avid reader first time poster. So i just realised this morning the dreaded BV is back after months of pristine vjj condition. Worst timing ever as I've just started seeing someone new! Last time I had BV I was so desperate I had a course of cleocin despite all the dreadful side effects. It worked but it wasn't a pleasant week. But from my experience this is what I would recommend:
Cleocin did work but it totally destroys your stomach so if you decide to go down this path also get some kefir AND aloe vera juice AND slippery elm powder, these will help with the excruciating stomach pains. You also get bad reflux so chewable antacids help.
I am of the firm belief that coffee, an excessive amount of coffee set my BV off as well as sex with a new partner. Pee and shower after sex!!!( Rinse her with cold water and nooo soap) I think apple cider vinegar and the vit c things are only a temporary solution, you may get a few days to a weeks relief but that's it. I just did the tampon in ACV trick (it burned like crrrazy) to tie me over until I see the doctor tomorrow but I really think cleocin will be the go for me again. They say 30% of women who are treated successfully for bv have a recurrence within a few months so I guess there's just no rhyme or reason. I've been slack with the kefir and over doing the coffee so that's what I'm putting it down to! Also, the early symptoms can be confused with thrush. Taking diflucan seems to aggravate it more! Hang in there girls! Maybe there is someone out there with the miracle cure

Hi.I'm 28 years old. I have had bacterial vaginosis (BV) for almost 2 years. When I first had symptoms, I thought it was a yeast infection. I never really get any discharge with the bacterial infection as you would in a yeast infection but my symptoms are burning and itching, bad! I started going to my OBGYN for this and he put me on treatment with Cervugid Ovules ( vaginal suppository). After two months of treatment with Cervugid Ovules ,I had medical tests again and BV went away. I was cured of the disease. I am very happy that i got rid of those awful itching and that horrible smell. Now I can start my life again.

I've been suffering from bv for about two yrs now and I've tried almost everything prescribed and over the counter including Boric acid tea tree oil which burned like hell and the yogurt trick which worked for about a wk den it was back with a vengeance.i did some searching and someone told me to try all natural vitamin c capuals and insert one into my vag every night for about 3-7 days. So I went on a hunt for them because at this point I was fed up with the embarrassing odor. I went to my local vitamin shoppe looked for a straight vitamin c capuals with nothing else in it I looked for a lower dosage no more than 500mg because I didn't want to over do it being that vitamin c is a acid. I couldn't find any capuals that didn't have a coating on it or that was straight vitamin c so I purchased liquid vitamin c 300 mg per table spoon.i later went home and soaked a tampon in 300mg of vitamin c it was hell getting the tampon bk into the plastic but I managed I did that while taking a probiotic and and takin a hot bath with baking soda to maintain a healthy ph level once all the bad bacteria had died. I did that for about 4 days and continued the baths for about another 2 days just to be safe..ok let me say this the very first time I put one of the soiled tampon in nd left it for a complete night,agpfter I removed it the smell was gone I was elated but I thought maybe this is temporary so I continued for a couple more nights to assure it was gone.. And it worked its gone I have no smell now and I even had sex with my boyfriend and their was no smell at all wat so ever finally relief I can now be more confident during sex and everyday life knowing I've found a cure if u have been struggling to find what right for you try my remedy it may be the one for you IM BV FREE🙌🏼🙌🏼

I'm 19 years old and I first got the BV symptoms a few months ago but they would only last a day and go away and come back a week or two later. A month ago I noticed it wasn't going away and tried the Vitamin C method. At night I took a shower and then inserted a 500 mg pill into my vagina as far as it could go. A few minutes later I felt it leaking out and it burned! Like Satan himself was coming out of my vagina! A few minutes later the burning went away and the smell was GONE! I was so surprised on how fast the smell went away. I didn't do it the next day because I didn't feel like having my vagina on fire but I did do it the next day because I still had the white cloudy discharge. I will say the burning was worth it because the smell goes away along with the pill. You don't have to worry about getting the pill out of your vagina because dissolves. I will for sure do this after my period and after sex just to make sure no BV bacteria is alive in there. So I would recommend this method to every girl who has BV but vaginas are like snowflakes. Every one is different.

Will someone please help. I've been having issues with bv for about 2 years now. Antibiotics help for a few days AT most. I bathe regularly, I use a tiny amount of ph balancing feminine wash. Ive tried a few home remidies, but they ended up making things much worse. There's so many instructions and things to do on here, and I have a limited budget. I can not continue to have this fish smell issue... My boyfriend and I avoid sex like the plague now. It's unpleasant for him, he tells me when it smells bad, and he doesn't use much cooth when doing so, so I am MORTIFIED of sex. And when I don't get it, if you will, I get so cranky. I need the simplest, most permanent solution to help me. I drink a lot of beer, I don't exercise much but I'm still kind of in shape. I eat a lot of meat.. I just quit smoking. I'm 25. If anyone can help me please let me know. I can't take the embarassment..

After dealing with recurrent bv and yeast infections for over a year after having the IUD, I was getting really frustrated when I always had to make an appointment to go see the doctor. The bills were really addding up and it seemed like as soon as I got rid of one, the other would show up. It was a constant battle. I was embarassed and really emotional that I had to keep dealing with it. I researched the internet and decided to try the Vit C remedy. I thought, what the hell, I really have nothing to lose and it's a natural method. At bedtime I used one 500mg tablet and by the next morning the odor and discomfort was gone. Just for good measure I did that 3 nights in a row. I didn't have a recurrence for almost 5 months and when I did I just used the Vit C again and it cleared up right away. It's the only method I will use now. I feel like all the antibiotics and diflucan really didn't work after a period of time so I'm glad I have a cheap, quick alternative that takes care of it! Try it, it sounds odd but it really does work.

Soaking a tampon in STRAIGHT ACV sounds HORRIBLE! I definitely would dilute it. I use the stuff on my hair and it really is magic. Try using a Solo cup and filling the vinegar just to the first little line and then the rest with warm water before soaking your tampon or douching (I really do believe it is best NOT to douche at all, though, as you can actually push the bad bugs up through your cervix and into your uterus- this is what PID is). Try a sitx bath instead (couple inches of warm water in the tub with 1/2 cup ACV).Your skin will be soft, too!

Coconut oil is ALSO absolute magic, y'all. Just like the hot sauce commercial, I put that sh*t on EVERYTHING! I even feed it to my dog. Seriously, MAGIC. roll a tampon it it, use it as lube, soften up your frizzy hair-EVERYWHERE.Do it. Do it NOW! I stock up at Trader Joe's. a jar is about $6 and lasts a long time.
**If you are actively suffering from BV use CLEAN HANDS or a clean spoon everytime! Don't contaminate the whole jar with your bad bugs!!**
Also, buy the good stuff (unrefined, unbleached, organic). It smells nice :) You'll thank me!

Probiotics, like everything else that our body likes, work best when you get them from food. So get some Kefir! Lifeway is a brand I find at my local grocer (and I live in a food dessert). It has a wider variety of good bugs (12 different live cultures!), has a greater shelf life than yogurt (because it is fermented) and is lactose AND gluten free for those of you who suffer with intolerance. It's an amazing immune system booster and you only need 1 cup a day (it's like a smoothie!).Did I mention it is YUMMY?

I've found that, along with taking daily multivitamins (hair and nails is my jam)and using these three things my symptoms greatly improve.**Hair and nail vitamins contain chlorophyll, vitD3, Folic acid, and ALL the other stuff I've seen people list on this great site, but in 3 pills a day instead of a handful).

I tell ALL my patients about the Kefir thing and all my girlfriends about coconut oil (I am scary-level obsessed, in case you can't tell).

I also drink a ton of lemon water (because I love it). I've noticed I have only ever had 'flares' after a new partner or when I'm eating really crappily (including drinking ETOH). Think of it as your body's way of telling you it's out of whack. I would guess that many of you guys suffer from GI symptoms as well (bloating, constipation/diarrhea, nausea, flatulence). I promise, Kefir helps!

I apologize if this post seems 'all over the place'. I always get excited to tell people how to get well. It is an ER nurse thing- discharge instructions (literally!!).

I have a really bad yeast infection(all external) and it's been horribly itchy and painful down there for days!!! I read somewhere that cornstarch is good for rashes, so after my shower I took a cotton ball, dipped it in cornstarch, and gently patted it on all the affected areas. It's great for short term relief!!!
