I had been having recurrent BV infections for a little over a year. I tried the hydrogen peroxide and that didn't seem to work very well. I also tried plain yogurt and that didn't work well either. I read somewhere online that the vagina should not be washed with soap, just plain, warm water. I started to skip the soap. At the same time I took probiotic tabs and did a 5 day regiment of inserting q-tips soaked in t-tree oil 2 times per day. I am happy to say that i have not been experiencing BV symptoms for about 3 months now. I stopped taking the probiotics about a month and a half in and have not done any t-tree treatments since. Boy, was i happy today when i saw the doc and she confirmed that I am indeed BV free. Seems the key ingredient was the skipping of the soap for me. Hope this helps someone else, because it was extremely distressing for me.
