I got hit with a bout of BV 2 months ago and I tried everything but couldn't shake it.
Not being one to put up with this for long, I dug around the internet for affirmation every time I thought of something that might work.
ACV did not work for me. I drank a heap of it every day and douched with it to no avail.
I bought a stainless steel douche but that with water alone did not help.
In the end what has worked for me (it took about 5 days) was this:
20ml of chlorophyll first thing in the morning before food.
Douche with hydrogen peroxide mixed 1:1 with bottled water, and do not rinse
Glass of water with a heaped tbsp of diatomaceous earth (Food grade)
2 probiotic capsules
2 x 1000mg vit C tablets
1 folic acid tablet
At least 2 litres of water throughout the day and a probiotic capsule plus a vit C tablet in the middle of the day
Repeat the morning routine before going to bed
Note: I only ever douched once a day and I'm not sure if douching too much with peroxide would be detrimental.
The way I see it is that you need to treat the cause as well as the symptoms, so HP douching alone will not help.
I think the HP helps kill the bacteria inside the vag, but taking all the other things internally addresses the cause.
Honestly I'm not sure what the folic acid does but it was just part of the cocktail I took so I wouldn't change it.
The chlorophyll is a 'body cleanser and internal deodoriser' as well as antioxidant. The vit C I think helps to fight the bacterial infection, the probiotics obviously help replenish the good bacteria and most important of all, the diatomaceous earth adsorbs the bad bacteria and removes it from the body with bodily waste, but leaves the good bacteria in place.
Good luck to all sufferers out there! I wouldn't have figured out my own remedies without reading what worked for others so I hope my experience can be of use to someone.
