I have suffered from BV for years. Can't count how many times I have taken antibiotics only to have it come back. I have also tried yogurt, hydrogen peroxide and everything I have seen on this sight including tea tree oil which only got rid of the odor and after 2 or 3 days it was back. The only thing I've tried with any success is boric acid. I ordered if from Amazon and inserted it twice a day for a week and have had no problems.
I have been taking 'Probiotic Multi-Enzymes, Digestive Formula with active acidophilus cultures' from Wal-Mart for about a month. I have been taking them with each meal (when I remembered) when I found out I had acid reflux instead of ulcers. I also take at the same time 'Natural Spirulina with blue green algae,' also from Wal-Mart. I usually go to health food stores, but it was convenient at the time plus cheap.
I noticed recently, the odor is not unpleasant and my discharge has thinned considerably to my delight. I got the thick white discharge from taking vaginal estrogen cream only twice two years ago. I probably got the BV from urine leakage. I did take oral prescription from GYN, but the BV reoccurred.
I am looking forward to more progress. It's slow, but hey, we all need enzymes for digestion anyway after being in the 30's. I have always used Summer Eve's sensitive (unscented) feminine wash..so I don't understand why people don't recommend it.
BTW, for those who have problems with semen, you just might be allergic to your partner's semen. Sorry don't have the article as I read about it years ago.
Give me lemons and man I got something better than lemonade... I found relief from BV! Ladies I've tried everything and nothing helped I'm now a month into this thing and I know it is working. Lemons actually help your PH balance!? Who knew. I cut a fresh lemon in half..use about 8 Oz's of water squeeze the lemon juice in the water and drink. Nothing more. I did this before eating in the morning and right before bed at night. Everything doesnt work for everybody....this works for me!

So after suffering with BV for about 6 years I finally found this post that could possibly help me with a home remedy because obviously the doctors were not helping. After reading a few different blogs I decided to go with a probiotic with cranberry, odorless garlic, and a woman's multivitamins. I got all 3 of them for 12$ and some change, in California. I started off my morning taking 2 of the garlic capsules, 2 probiotic plus cranberry capsules, and then the multi vitamin. I took those with water because I had also read something about drinking my water. Throughout the day I drink 6 cups of water. I started this regimen at about 830 this morning and it is 10 in the night and I haven't noticed much of anything negative going on. It could be chance or luck but hopefully this is working for me. I was hesitant on shoving anything up me. I will post tomorrow night and see how things go. The one thing i did notice was the the garlic pills made me burp for a few hours after and i could taste it a little bit, nothing too wild and the burps are worth a clean feeling and fresh vag!!
I have been suffering from BV for two years. Dr. Prescribed the gel and pills and the BV never goes away. Now I am having horrible painful 'pressure' as well. It feels like everything down there is swollen even though it isn't. It is very stressful!! I have started using Vitamin c and vitamin d along with folic acid, garlic pills and cranberry tablets. Nothing is working. Has anyone also had the pressure feeling? Feeling very depresses.
Hello everyone! I had to share this with all of you :)
I had BV on and off for almost 2 years. Tried everything.literally!multiple pills,yogurt inserting and what not. what really worked for me is this guys:
1.totally cut sugar OFF your diet for atleast 4-6 months. completely! i mean ZERO it. all syrups,jellies,icecreams,chocolates(except v dark chocolate sometimes). one spoon of sugar lowers your immune system by 4 hrs! Only sugar you can have is from apples, melons, oranges may be, grapes and other fruits wt not v high glycemic index. this is the most imp factor. Sugar will never let your good bacteria have enough potential to fight the bad ones.
2.totally cut off processed breads/crackers with yeast/sugar/,biscuits wt yeast. what to eat then? try to go completely natural, make whole wheat tacos/indian rotis at home. try to go as whole in every kind of food you eat. cut preservatives.
3.The BEST cure for BV is to drink one tea spoon of ORGANIC Apple cider vinegar, twice a day. this should have the mother of the vinegar, which means the vinegar would look muddy with the sediments. This is imp since, refined vinegar/any other type pf vinegar would be rather harmful, could cause acidity.
This is the MOST effective of any treatment. NO DOCTOR ever told me this. but i'm cured and I'm sure you'll see results, if followed along with the other remedies, in a week-10 days! :)
4.your body is vitamin deficit thats why your immune is not working at its best. take multi vitamins for atleast 2-3 months. confirm with your physician once for best advise.
5.keep stress at bay. no matter what, your body is your temple and your mind controls everything. whatever works for you, dance, pilates,yoga,sun salutation. exercise in whatever manner, to cleanse your body and mind :)
6. pls keep away from sex or inserting anything for atleast 4-6 months. once youre cured, youd be back to an even healthier life, so be patient. if at all you require to, ask your partner to use water base condoms. But, this is only if you absolutely cant without.
7. Keep all unwanted hair neatly trimmed. Avoid tight under wears at night. DONT douche. wash yourself with a tea spoon of only organic apple cider vinegar, 1 tea spoon in half/1 litre plain water, twice a day if you can. it really helps retain good bacterial health in there.
8. Consume 200-250 gms of yogurt everyday if possible. it helps in the healing.
9. Keep away from perfumed pads, strong detergants strong chemicals close to that area.
10. Stay positive :) most imp! No body promised sunshine with no rain ever! :) if there's body, there would be issues with it. no biggie! stay positive and tell yourself its ok. i am healing each day. I am a healthy body and i shall be at my best everyday.
hope everyone benefits from this. cheers guys! :)
I second (k1993). This felt like the easiest way from most of the suggestions I read on here. I tried this except I took 1 acidophilus and 2 probiotic plus & cranberry pills a day. I'm on my fourth day so far it has cleared up. My vag doesn't have a fishy smell or a sour taste anymore I am so confident now with my partner no more trips to the bathroom first before we have sex lol. I hope this comment will help someone! I will comment back in a month or so!
Omggggg!! Odorless garlic tabs in my vagina works!! I left it in overnite and d morning no fishy smell. In the morning I take 1 fish oil, 1 acidophillus tab, 1 women multivitamin with two garlic tabs orally. At nite I take 1 acidophillus and 2 more garlic tabs orally. I then insert one garlic tab vaginally. No smell or itch.
COCONUT AND TEA TREE OIL: I had BV off and on for what felt like forever. It came and went in intensity but never fully went away. After my last pap it became more intense, and I kinda self-diagnosed and wore a tampon covered in coconut oil with a few drops of tea tree oil for an hour once or twice a day. Four days later my doc called to diagnose me with BV, but by that time I was as good as new! Whenever I start feeling a little unfresh I put one of these magical concoctions in while I have a shower, and by the time I'm done I'm clean inside and out!
