508 Home Remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis

I used to get BV every month after my period and the antibiotics just made me feel sick. So, I did a lot of research as the doctors didn't help and what works for me hands down is that natural yoghurt with that ingredient beginning with L. I suck some of it up in an applicator type thing and then squeeze it in and leave it all nighta and I wear a pad so it doesn't go everywhere. The first night it's dramtically improved so I do it a couple more nights and it is gone. Now I have started using natracare cotton tampons and I have used the twice now and touch wood it's staying away.

I started developing BV in my 50's. I had never had it before in my life. I only get it when I have sex with a new partner - but not all new partners 'give' me BV. I've had BV three times now in the past 3 years. The only thing that worked was going to the doctor and getting the antibiotic prescription. The antibiotics made it go away completely - until I had sex with a new partner and then, 'Hello BV' within 1-2 days. I don't understand it. I never used to get BV when I had sex with a new partner. I think it is a new STD. It behaves just like an STD.

Hello ladies!

I have been suffering with BV for the past 6 months. I was seeing a new GYN Dr., only because my GYN/OB Dr., is too crowded always had emergencies (deliveries) but he is good. Anyways I would always get the metro creme and like clockwork the flowing month after my menstrual cycle BV returned. I like most ladies turned to this remedy page to see what would work I tried everything from changing my diet and eating habits, to bathing with tea tree oil, taking pro biotics and vitamins well guess what nothing helped me. So I finally switched back to my GYN/OB Dr., who I been seeing and delivered my babies for over 19 years I told him the problem he took one look at me and said 'I bet you're not wiping yourself correctly' of course I responded with 'yes I am, front to back'. Dr., says 'that's what everyone says who suffers with BV'. Dr., says if you're not wiping yourself correctly a dime size of stool can cause not only BV but major health problems so I suggest you follow my instructions and I promise you BV won't ever be a problem for you again'.

Here's the Dr.'s instructions:

1st I will give you and your husband antibiotics to treat the BV this way we both would be bacterial free. (Meaning not passing the bacteria back and forth among each other).

2nd you will wipe from front to back at least 3xs but each time you wipe front to back (mid way right before anal area) you wipe with tissue drop, get another tissue wipe drop and so on until the area is clean.

3rd you wipe from midway to anal drop repeat with clean tissue until the tissue is clean.

4th take more baths soak for at least 5 min in clear water avoid using soaps with perfumes shower less.

5th don't douche or use tampons.

6th whenever you and/or your partner are handling your private area make sure your hands are clean. Try washing off before having sex.

Believe it or not I am 3 months BV free!!! Its just this simple. I hope this can help some of you ladies.

Hi ladies, I'm 18 and I suffered from BV for a couple months, with it occurring off and on. I self-diagnosed myself in November by researching the symptoms online, and went to a minute-clinic where they gave me an oral antibiotic to treat a yeast infection, and also Flucanazol to treat the Bacterial infection after the lab results returned. I assumed I wasn't being as cleanly as I should (multiple unprotected partners) and was glad when the symptoms disappeared with treatment. But to my disgust the whole infection returned. The smell wasn't the worst part, it was the discharge. It was disgusting. I got into a relationship and was afraid every time we had sex he would wonder why it was so funky. So I returned to a doctor - this time my family physician - and she treated me with Flucanazol as well. Again the symptoms disappeared but they came back even sooner (with my period) this time, and brought an odor worse than ever. I went to the doctor yet again and got a stronger antibiotic this time, and again my infection came back worse than before. At this point i was tired of antibiotics failing and destroying my immune system, it's winter and I had 3, yes THREE sinus infections in 2 months! So I resorted to reading and researching and fact-checking every home remedy I could find. I bought vitamins, douches, plain organic yogurt, gulped water by the gallons it felt like. For 2 weeks I followed a strict routine I devised myself from all the different remedies I could find. In the morning in the shower I would douche once with a hydrogen peroxide-water solution to 'treat' the bacteria. wait for it to empty, and then douche with Apple-Cider Vinegar and water, to return the vagina's Ph to about what it should be. Once out of the shower I would insert a capsule of Probiotic Acidophilus, and a tampon soaked in the plain yogurt. I removed the tampon after about an hour or 2 and wore a pantiliner to catch the discharge from the acidophilus. I would insert another capsule before bed every night. I was also taking a multi vitamin and an acidophilus capsule orally every morning. Well as long as I continued this my sympyoms were gone. no discharge and no odor. of course I was somewhat pleased but deep down I knew it was only because of the amount of douching keeping the symptoms at bay. so I stopped my routine (except taking the vitamins orally) and sure enough the symptoms returned, but they were definitely not as bad. the odor was less noticeable I actually had to shove my finger up there and smell or smell my panties. and the discharge wasn't as much or as thick. so I knew what I was doing was somewhat helping. so I tried one more totally different technique. Garlic. I was very weary about this for many reasons. Inserting that odd food up there, leaving it until it expels itself naturally, and having a very strong smell of garlic coming from down there was not something I would've tried casually, but I read only good about garlic as a natural antibiotic. so I tried it. I didn't do anything else besides continue taking one acidophilus and one multivitamin orally each morning. and I was amazed that it worked. completely cleared up. the smell went away about 24 hours after the clove of garlic expelled itself and the discharge has not returned nor has the smell. it's been about a week and I am so relieved! all I did besides peel away the skin of the clove was cut several slices into it to release the juices. keep in mind I have been making my boyfriend withdrawal the past couple weeks, which isn't something he likes to do so we didn't use to (I was on birth control) and could've added to the yucky feeling with the infection. and I also haven't had my period yet this month (I might be pregnant actually!) so hopefully that doesn't bring it back but please please give this a shot of nothing else is giving lasting results. one more thing, I would NOT waste my time or money on the darned tampon soaked in yogurt. it did not seem to anything but make a mess and leave me with a quart of the most disgusting yogurt ever. it tastes more like sour cream. and 'soaking' the tampon is a LOT harder than it sounds. I tried taking it out of the inserter and it expands and is nearly impossible to insert. But leaving it in the package it doesn't absorb much if any, but enough for the tip to expand to where you can't get the tampon out of the tube!! So, I will very much regret getting anyone's hopes up IF my BV returns, but this is the longest I've been symptom-free and felt amazingly fresh since the first time I was treated with antibiotics, and hopefully this time it does not return.

Thank God for you ladies!!!! First off, I don't write on blogs but I just had to share my experience and give thanks to you ladies who also shared this embarrassing experience.

I have suffered from what doctors claimed was YI and Vaginitis for 2 years after having my baby. However that was not the case. I did my own research and found out I had BV. My searching lead me to this site. I decided to try some of these remedies since nothing the doctors gave worked.

I started off by taking 1 Women's One a Day Vitamin, 1 D3 2,00iu, 1 folic acid, and 1 vitamin C. At night I inserted 1 Folic acid vitamin up my vagina and the next day the smell was completely gone.However, the next day I started smelling the foul smell again so I decided to use the douche method with equal parts of peroxide and water. I was smell free for about 2 weeks then my period came on. 2 days after my period the smell came back which is today. So I inserted the folic acid, vitamin C and E up my gf again. But if this doesn't work I will just have to douche which I know will help until my period comes on. It's a start until I find a long lasting cure.

Once again, thank you. God Bless you and I hope this helps someone

Ok I have been to this website a number of times. I have tried the natural remedies. I have read some the remedies that other ladies have suggested and none of it worked for me. I was diagnosed with BV in the summer of 2011. I don't have to explain the hell that you live through since anyone that is on this site is dealing with it. I tried every natural remedy out there. Every combination. I downloaded the book that swears that it will clear up BV forever, NOT. I don't want to say 'don't waste your money' but for me it didn't work. It is now 2014 and I waited six months before I came to post what has been working for me. I went to my Dr. and worked closely with her. There seems to be this controversy surrounding antibiotics. Let me share my experience. I did the first round and it did come back. I went back to the Dr. with my boyfriend of 4 years. She gave him a prescription and gave me another one. He does not orgasm inside of me. We started this back in the fall of 2013 and I have been symptom free. I also take a very strong probiotic. I take the largest dose you can take. I take fish oil every day and Vitamin D. I do experience some discharge but there is no odor and no other symptoms. I know that everyone has a different remedy and I think that you have to keep trying different treatments. I really wanted to share my treatment and hopefully it will work for you as it has for me so far. I also wanted to share that I am post menopausal and my Dr. said that this infection usually affects women in child bearing years so she has referred me to a menopause clinic as well but I have not had an appointment as yet. Once I go I will share what the outcome of that appointment will be. I know that I experienced depresssion, humiliation and didn't even want to have sex over the past few years but as I said I am symptom free and this is worth trying. Our sex life is on track again. I wish you the same results.

Hi, after having BV for about 3 years, if tried everything, the docs were always testing me for clamidhia, I had a camera up me, the anti-biotic loads of times and using soaps for dry skin (that works a bit) I thought it was my periods causing it, so had the implant, still got it!

Anyway so I was reading this page again, and saw a couple of posts about taking vitamin D Tablets, thought I would give it a go, I'd had BV for over a week at the time and within 2 or 3 days it had gone, I've taken a vitamin D tablet every day and it's not come back, it may well be a coincidence but it's working for me, I certinally won't stop taking them and £5 every 3 months to get rid I'm happy, I've never wrote anything like this before but I know how depressing BV is

Hey everyone
I had BV for an entire year, I would go to my doctor and get a prescription but as soon as it ran out I was back to where I started. I tried a variety of immune boosting supplements including spirulina, vit c, echanicia etc etc and nothing worked. I would even put a sugar free vit c tab inside of me and although it cured the problem for a day it never lasted.
Finally, thinking lubrications could be the problem I switched to organic olive oil. One day that ran out and I decided to just use a little coconut oil instead. Instant cure. That is now all we use for lubrication and it has put a complete stop to my reoccurring BV. Brilliant!
