508 Home Remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis

Kaki

For a few weeks I was experiencing heavy cramping in my cervix. I went to my GYN & he tested me for STDs & did a pap smear. Results came back negative for STDs & a normal pap. He told me I probably just had a cyst & that it would go away...fortunately it did. Shortly after I began feeling a burning sensation in my vagina. To embarrassed to say anything much less make another appointment to my GYM I decided to go online and do a self diagnosis. 3 options came up Yeast infection, UTI or BV. Well I got meds for yeast & a UTI but the burning feeling was still there. So I googled home remedies for BV & found this website. One of the post talked about the Dr. Oz show. Basically saying that the reason why women get BV is due to a deficiency in Vitamin D! This made complete sense to me since I rarely eat fish or drink milk, & rarely get exposure to direct sunlight. So I bought some vitamin D gummies at my local supermarket, since I don't like swallowing pills. And I promise you in a matter of 3 days the burning sensation was gone! My boyfriend is a pharmacist...all I told him was that I self diagnosed myself with a vitamin D deficiency & that I was taking Vitamin D gummies. He suggested I eat yogurt, cottage cheese or some form of diary product because it helps our body absorb the Vitamin D plus as women we need the calcium to help with preventing osteoporosis. Unlike the other women I didn't douche but I was daily with feminine wash.i hhope tia post helps someone else experiencing the same symptoms I was.

Hi Ladies,
Thank you for all the information, it's been really helpful. I’ve never posted before, but wanted to share my experience in the hope it helps someone. I’ve read the posts on douching, but it scares me too much (sounds like it’s going to burn or cause other issues), so I have not done this.
I’ve had BV 3 times in the past 2 years, each time doctor subscribes metronidazole, which, the first time round worked fine, however the 2nd and 3rd I seem to have become immune to it. So this time I’ve had BV for 3 weeks, and the antiobiotics have not made the slightest difference.

I’ve finally seemed to have kicked it, (thanks to suggestions from this site).
What has worked:
5 mls of Apple cider vinegar (orally before breakfast)

Morning and night taking Lifestream Bowel Biotics Powder (if you don’t have Lifestream brand, Im sure you can find other brands with this formula, has slippery elm, probiotic and prebotics. It’s a powder I mix with water, tastes pretty yuck, but worth it! I didn’t realise prebiotics and probiotics were two different things, and i suspect its taking the prebiotic with the probiotic that has helped this to work.

2 x Ester C 1000mg (orally)

3 x Kyolic garlic capsules (orally)

2 x probiotic capsules (morning and night, orally)

Inserting 1 probiotic capsule per night for 7 nights (I use the shelf stable ones, not the refrigerated ones). I have the capsules, the ones you can pull apart, i take the top off, then insert, using a tampon to get it far enough in. But i remove the tampon.

Also the below research article helped me immensely. I hope this helps someone else too! Please note I had taken the antibiotics for 3 weeks (with no result), i took them for 2 days with the above combined, as wanted to kill the bacteria first and repopulate with good stuff at same time. So you may want to experiment with this, it might pay to try both?! Good luck ladies!

Google 'jfp inserting probiotic research'

Hello ladies! After dating an uncircumsized man I started having BV issues after sex and during my period. itching and a horrible fish smell. I went to the doctor and she said i did not have a BV and to take Pro-biotics made for women that my flora was getting knocked out of balance by sex and my period but i did not have clinical BV. She would not give me a RX. I went online and saw everyone elses struggles and I felt so much better like Im not the only one struggling. I used a 70% water and 30% hydrogen peroxide douche for three days and also starting taking Pro-B probiotics especially for women vaginal health. I am VERY happy to report aftet 3days days the smell was gone and now after a 7 days I smell like my old self-YES! and less discharge and less itching. I will post back after my period if I have any issues I plan on using the hydrogen peroxide douche again. I am not sexually active hopefully I can stay on top of things if i do get a bf again-hoping :-)

I've suffered from bacterial infections for quite some time and hated the fact of having to go to the doctor every single time for treatment. The remedy I tried gave me instant relief and also got rid of that horrible smell. I mixed 50% water and 50% hydrogen peroxide and inserted it in my vagina, after that I inserted a 1000mg vitamin C pill into my vagina, and then I saturated a tampon in plain non fat Greek yogurt and inserted it into my vagina and left it in for 2 hours. When I removed it the smell was gone and so was the discharge.

Money

I went back to 86 years of the old wives tale. 50% hydrogen peroxide 50% water. It is an antibiotic. Use as a douche or soak a tampon and insert for 20 minutes. Has worked better than anything a doctor perscribed and lasts. Very happy I don't have to keep going to the doctor.

BV B GONE

I have tried everything that's been suggested hydrogen peroxide, apple cider vinegar, white vinegar...none worked, for me!
What has worked for me is, 1000mg odorless garlic soft gels. After my period is when BV acts up. I take one soft gel insert before I go to bed, next morning I douche with regular tap water just to flush out the slight garlic smell. After that I'm back to normal!!
I hope this helps you ladies!!

Heres the deal girls.......bv or yeast means you have a over growth of 'the bad stuff' one way or another.Stop the medications.women have been dealing with this since the beging of time.natural cures will alow you to have a healthy vagina.I suffered for so long untill I realized this.

First you have to kill the over growth that swhere the peroxcide or applecider vin or tee tree comes in.choose one and douche with it mixed with water
Next you need to replace the healthy growth by either live culture plain(no flavor no sugar)yogurt or pure acidophilus.I have found that opening capsule and mixing with a shotglasss of water and inserting into vagina with a medication needless syringeworks best.

Last...treat it from inside out by drinking half your body weight in ounces of water.Taking acidophilis pill orally everyday or eating yogurt every day.Also take good multi vit everyday and cut back on sugars : )

HateBV

First of all I want to Thank all of you ladies for the suggestions!! Now, I have tried everything and finally found the one thing that works for me. Long story short, now get BV towards the end of my period. This is what I do and it works!
When I smell the fishy odor I take an odorless garlic capsule 1000 mg, insert it before you go to bed. If you feel like you smell garlicky, douche with plain water, nothing else, plain water!
I hope this helps you ladies!!!
