Bacterial Vaginosis Home Remedy Comments

0 Comments for the Bacterial Vaginosis Home Remedy


I had BV for about two years. The Dr. prescribed pills and creams and none of it worked. It went on for so long with no relief that she finally gave me a prescription for an iodine douche. This gets a bad rap because it will kill your good bacteria as well. After years of suffering, it was worth the risk. It made a positive impact on my discomfort. Iodine can be bought OTC in the feminine hygiene isles. Buy a generic douche bottle for a dollar, empty it and douche twice a day. It has to be watered down before you use it!! I used the douche for a couple of months.

Secondly, I added a daily probiotic to my diet along with Vitamin D, Folic acid, and garlic supplements. I never inserted the pills into my vagina, I only take them orally.

Take everything you read here with a grain of salt, but the remedies are all worth a try when you have an infection and you are suffering something awful. Everyone's body is different so you may need to alter the suggestions to fit your needs. That is what I had to do and I feel soooooo much better. For two years I thought I'd just have to learn to live with it, but relief is possible. Good luck to all of you and I hope you find relief!!
