I tend to get BV a few times a few and I found the prefect remedy that works literally overnight. I use plain yogurt directly to the affected area because it works best that way. What you'll need is plain yogurt,a baby medicine syringe and a pad for the night. I guarantee you'll be back to normal in the morning. I've been doing this for years and it works.

Hello ladies ! There are many women who suffer from the horrible condition known as BV. I struggled with it for about 3-4 months now and I finally found my cure and I think this will work for a lot of ladies which is why I want to share it all with you ! This is something I came up with myself and it worked ! When I was first diagnosed with it I was prescribed Flagyl and it came right back when I stopped taking the medicine and I got a nasty yeast infection from it. I tried apple cider vinegar and the yogurt tampon thingy, and hydrogen peroxide. It all just worked temporarily. I could still smell the fishy smell after sex, and I still had really watery and annoying discharge. I didn't know what else to do.

So finally I looked into the supplements and I went to Walmart and bought two small bottles of acidophilus for about 10-12$. It was 1 billion active cultures each pill. I kept taking the pill orally everyday. Some days I would take like 6 pills.(after i realized women were taking other pills with 10 billion active cultures !)
IT STILL WASNT WORKING ENOUGH FOR ME ! I COULD STILL SMELL THE FISHY SMELL LINGERING SO I THOUGHT WELL HOW ABOUT THIS!

I took 1 DOUCHE CONTAINER
3-4 ACIDOPHILUS PILLS CRUSHED INTO POWDER

I dumped the powder into the empty douche container carefully (might want to make a small cone so you wont make a mess pouring it in container) and then I added lukewarm/cold water (not hot ! this will kill the good bacteria ). I kept swirling it around to activate the cultures. I sat on the toilet and squirted all those little buggers in there. I held in the liquid as long as I could(3-5 mins) with my vaginal muscles and pinching my lips around the nozzle so the liquid wouldnt just all fall out as soon as being in there.

I did this for 2-3 days and one day after having sex with my boyfriend we noticed the smell was completely gone! I havent had a smell or any watery discharge in a week so far and I am so happy my last attempt worked!

I would still take some orally just to kind of work the insides of the body even more plus its good for your immune system. Another thing I think helped a lot is DRINKING LOTS OF WATER! I hate water but my body health was way more important !

This is all I did and now I am BV free. I now also drink lots of fruit juices now. REAL FRUIT JUICES not the ones with just sugar and corn starch. Ladies try it and see how it goes.

I wanted to add to the discussion about remedies for bacterial vaginosis. I too have had this problem constantly over the years but I have found many things that work and will keep you from going to the doctor every time you believe you have it and have to take that disgusting medicine. The first is the yogurt thing on the tampon that someone else mentioned. Make sure it's plain yogurt. Also, apple cider vinegar on the tampon works as well. For people like me who get a yeast infection after taking antibiotics, these two remedies may have the same effect and you may get a yeast infection but you can just the over the counter cream for that. The last thing that works and is really healthy for your body is drinking lemon water. Cut up a lemon and put it in a half gallon of water and drink it through out the day. It also helps to slightly detox your body and can give your metabolism a boost if you drink it first thing in the morning. It works because it alkalines your body and that pretty much means that it balances the bacteria in your body. The unbalance of bacteria is the cause of you getting the infection in the first place. Look up food that are acidic and foods that alkaline your body online and try to eat less acidic food. I did the research on this and I never get bacterial infections anymore. Also, make sure you use a soap for sensitive skin and don't actually use the soap inside your vagina. The vagina is like a self cleaning oven. As long as you are drinking lots of water and cleaning out the inside of your vagina with water only, your vagina will clean itself out. I hope this helps you ladies!

This is theONLY thing that worked for me

THIS IS HOW TO FIX IT:
I was suffering from bacterial vaginosis for over 3 years now and nothing would get rid of it. My boyfriend and I stopped having sex because the smell killed our mood. Going to the bathroom at work, in public, ect was always a scary experience because I never knew if someone would have to go right afterme and smell it. I tried pills, I tried apple cider vinegar, I tried hydrogen peroxide..NOTHING WORKED! I can't tell you how many times I cried about it.

I FINALLY tried Plain Greek Yogurt on a tampon for a few hours. smell was gone instantly and in the morning the discharge was gone! Seriously, for all you girls that just can't seem to get rid of it, try plain Greek yogurt!!!!!!

Well I have to say that this is one of the most embarrassing things that can happen to a women. Especially if you are in a relationship and have a sex partner. About 2 months ago I noticed an odor, so I went to my O.B. and had him test me for every STD possible, of coarse the STD panel came back negative but considering I have had B.V. before I knew what I had. I also tested negative for B.V. I told him I knew that I had B.V. because of the odor. He would not prescribe Flagyl. I thought what the.....? He told me to take probiotics, or eat yogurt or drink buttermilk. So I thought I know I am not crazy I will go to another Doctor. In the mean time I did a little research on B.V. It is an abnormal growth of bacteria in the vagina and a lack of your normal flora (normal bacteria) in the vagina. I have taken Microbiology and have a strong knowledge of bacteria. I have not seen the Abnormal bacteria under a microscope or on a culture so therefore I cannot identify it by name or even arrangement but I do know the normal bacteria is LACTOBACCILUS it receives it's name from arrangement, shape=rods, and what it ferments. So this is what I did. I went to the pharmacy and asked for probiotics, the bottle states that it has 1,000,000 colony forming units per pill. This is great!!!!! You want that!!!!!!! But after taken the pills for about 4 days there was no results. The colonies of the good bacteria would be present now but the colonies of bad bacteria were also still present, you want to eliminate the bad bacteria. Knowing that this bacteria is not very strong, I thought how could I get a dose of antibiotics? The only way I knew I could purchase antibiotics is bacitracin, I have seen the resistance that bacteria has against this common antibiotic. It will die unless it is a strong bacteria like what you would see in strepthroat. So I bought a tube of Neosporin and a bar of dial soap that said antibacterial. I washed well with the antibacterial soap and then inserted a small amount of neosporin into my vagina. Neosporin states for external use only but I also know that the worse that would happen is a yeast infection would appear as well as the B.V. so you want to be careful about how much you insert, I only used about 3cc or 3mL. It worked!!!!!!!!! I have been free of B.V. for about 1 month. So the neosporin killed the bad bacteria and the probiotics were in my blood stream finding homes all over my body including the vaginal area and digestive system. THANK GOD!!!! I hope this was helpful!

I've had BV 3 years on and off. I havent had one since I tried this remedy 3 months ago. First off,I want to remind women you should always wipe back to front and Never front to back..I am pretty sure this most womens problem.Also,The Dr meds Medizole is a temporary fix its not a cure and this also why it comes back frequently.

what I did is Filled 1/4th of the tub with HOT water as HOT as i could take it. This is important. a little red skin is not bad but don't burn yourself. Now, Add half a cup of all natural sea salt. sit in it with your vagina submerged for 20 minutes twice a day. (It's a long time but it works) do this for 5 days!

I got results on the 3rd day but, I kept going because,UGH i hate BV. Its a are pain and smells bad. I think 5 days is the best way I haven't had BV in 3months and counting ..So,I hope this helps you too.

I also, Have you used unrefined organic coconut oil to to get rid of the smell and discomfort and it worked.

I am 3 months and counting. Good luck!!

I have been dealing with bv for one year now,off and on. I have tried different remedies for it but to no avail. I finally began to pay attention to what I was actually taking during the times that my symptoms would go away and I finally realized that the answer to all my troubles was....apple cider vinegar. I drink a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar everyday with either a cup of orange juice,apple juice or cranberry juice. I have read that some people can take it with water but I cannot stand the taste of apple cider vinegar so I prefer to take it with some sort of juice. The discharge, the itchiness, the smell,its all gone when I use the apple cider vinegar. I do not take any probiotics or vitamins anymore. I simply drink the vinegar everyday. its a pretty cheap remedy in my opinion. You can usually find a pretty large jar of apple cider vinegar from the store for just a couple of dollars and it can last for quite a long time since you only need a teaspoon of it everyday. If you decide to go this route, please take the vinegar everyday, even if the symptoms go away. If you stop taking it, the symptoms will probably come back. I would also recommend that you limit your intake of sweets,drink plenty of water and use a very mild and fragrance-free feminine wash. Apple cider vinegar can help the body in so many ways, not just for the bv. I don't mind taking this stuff for the rest of my life since there are so many benefits anyway. I hope this helps ladies. Do not give up. You will be free of this problem in no time!

Ive had bv for over two years now. I have no idea what causes it ...I have tried drinking baking soda on an empty stomach which eases the discomfort and smell (you must not eat until one hour after... VERY IMPORTANT!)
Balance Active Gel and Molkosan (insert in vagina) which helps but does not cure and hydrogen peroxide.

I have decided to eliminate foods such as wheat and sugars which does help as i have previously tried it and take acidophilus and vitamin c and cranberry juice. I am also going to take a drink a friend recommended to ease any hunger so i can identify which foods flare up my symptoms.

Wish me luck!
