Hi everyone!!! I've been battling BV the last 2 or 3 years on and off and the first time I realized I had it, like anyone else who has,freaked the hell out!!!! Went to the doc, got prescribed Flagyl, it worked well but f*cked up my flora and gave me the worst yeast infection I've ever had and made the BV come back! Whatta waste of time and money... so I started looking up ALL natural remedies and tried everything! Through all the crazy experiments my vag and I have gone through, I have come up with 2 sure-fire remedies that do the job for me anytime it wants to start back up again (which is once or twice a year, as opposed to every month the first year I had it on Flagyl)
1ST REMEDY(my fav): 1 part 3\\% hydrogen peroxide, 1 part water mixture in a douche or medicine syringe. Insert and drain. Cleans out all the bacteria, good and bad. Immediately after doing so, push an acidophilus pill towards the back of your vagina to distribute back good bacteria, this is a very important step to rid of your BV forever. Make sure to wear a liner the next 1-2 days while your vagina rids of the excess acidophilus (always get checked up to make sure it is just BV and not due to something else). Acidophilus is available in most grocery stores in the vitamin isle $5-$15 (also really good for bloated bellies if taken orally!!!)
2ND REMEDY: Insert a Vitamin C tablet or pill (NON-FLAVORED) and push it all the way back in your vagina. Wait one day as the pill starts to dissolve and exit. Next day insert an acidophilus pill, pushed all the way back, and make sure you're wearing a liner the entire time! And BAM! You should be clean and foul smell-free!! This remedy takes a bit longer time (3-4 days) but if you don't like hydrogen peroxide this is a great alternative (:
These two remedies have helped me so very much and I hope they work for you too!!! Good luck ?
