508 Home Remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis

Hello ladies!!!!

I wanted to write in here because I myself suffered from BV for almost 3 years. I'm engaged and we have been together for almost 5 years. A lot of people say that BV is from sex, when I know this isn't true however, having sex can make it worse if you already have it from the sperm. So if you have BV and your trying everything to get rid of it, don't have sex until its gone.

I myself continued having sex because I was trying to have a baby however, once I stopped I noticed a little bit of a change. Not much but a little.

I Went to the doctors numerous times and the doctors kept prescribing me Metro- something. lol. I cant remember the name. Anyway, it would go away the first day of the medicine but right after the medicine was gone it came right back.

So the last time I went to the doctors. I took the medicine for 7 days and as soon as it was gone I started taking acidophilus pills. It said to take 1 but I took 2. 1 in the morning and 1 at night.

I also ate yogurt every single day and lots of vegetables more than usual. The yogurt I was eating also contained acidophilus, however I wasn't eating the plain kind because I'm not so big on yogurt. Also try to stay away from sugar, not all sugar because your body does need sugar however, if you can cut your intake of sugar in half that's awesome. Because bad bacteria thrives off sugar. I myself had a hard time with that. I drink atleast a 2 liter of mountain dew a day. But if your struggling with BV anything is worth trying.

I have been clean for almost 6 months!!!!

The reason why this medicine the doctors are prescribing to you is only working for the time you're taking it is because it's killing all of the bacteria, good and bad. So when your bacteria comes back it's nothing but bad. Taking the acidophilus right after your antibiotics will help restore the good bacteria before the bad bacteria has time to take over your vagina.

A lot of you like to douche with vinagar and water, or hydrogen peroxide but I'm telling you it's not good for your body. It even says it right on the bottle, DO NOT USE INTERNALLY!! Now I'm not going to say that it doesn't cure people, even myself I tried it but I do know that it made it worse for other people because it pushed the bacteria farther up them and actually cause an infection in there ovaries.

I know everyone who has BV cannot stand it and doctors don't seem to help but If you follow my advice I can almost promise you it will work.

Now some of you may ask, Do you have to take acidophilus for the rest of your life? I'm not sure too be honest. I've been BV free for 6 months however, I still take acidophilus pills, I have went down to a smaller live count at 100 million live culture cells, and was taking 1 billion for about 3 months right after the antibiotics. but I dont want it back so I continue to take it. I know it won't hurt you, it only makes you healthier, and really it's not that expensive so why take the risk.

I went through so much hell trying to get rid of it, taking the pills, folic acid and acidohphilus, hydrogen peroxide and vinegar douches, yogurt suggestions, literally everything you can possibly think of I've done it.

So do what I have suggested, it won't hurt you to try and please keep me updated. If I can help one person, I will feel good, because I know it's a pain in the ass.

Also, another thing, if your man is willing, suggest having him take a probiotic as well. So that way when he does ejaculate inside of you his sperm is a little more healthier for your vagina.

Well I hope I've helped, please let me know ladies, I'll check back everyday or so. Thank you.

After having to take antibiotics for six weeks due to a kidney infection, I found a few weeks later whilst having sex the most rancid odour filled the room. I honestly thought the cats food bowl had been knocked over. To my utmost horror, it was coming from me :( I'm 27 years old and had never experienced anything like it. Thrush, yes and two or three uti's.

A check up at the doctors confirmed bacterial vaginosis. Like many people here I was prescribed metrogel, yes it worked, until my period came, then it returned with a vengeance. I tried again with the gel but again after my period it would just come back.

So, after many desperate hours of trawling the Internet for causes and cures I found many variations. What I summed up was that; it returned after my period or sex (with ejaculation inside) because blood and semen 7-8 are more alkaline ph than your vagina. It should be slighlty acidic 3.5 - 4 So blood and semen make a level of ph which allows bad bacteria to flourish.

I may have gone to the extremes in treating this, as I read some are cured by just a few steps and others it keeps coming back. These are the steps I took.

1- wax or shave the entire area. I don't know if this helps pysically, but mentally you feel cleaner.

2- hydrogen peroxide, 3%. Unable to buy a douche I simply used a water bottle. This stuff is amazing, it bubbles and fizzes when it encounters bad bacteria. So the first time I used it it fizzed out of me like a rocket! The good bacteria actually produces a little hydrogen peroxide themselves.
The smell disappeared instantly :) use it in the morning

3- tea tree oil, this is a natural antiseptic. It will also kill bacteria. Put a few drops on a tampon and insert it. It may feel a little cool and smells but it is good. Use it at lunch time a few hours after the h.p. for a out an hour.

4- douche with a mix of warm water and apple cider vinegar. About half half, more water if it stings. This restores an acidic environment. In the evening. (It smells but not as bad as rotten fish tank)

5- insert a probiotic VAGINAL capsule, they're found in the feminine hygiene area of some chemists. These aren't the same as the oral ones.
Do it after the apple cider vinegar.

These are the steps I followed every day for a week after my period. After that I did the hydrogen peroxide twice a week and just the capsules.

Along side these steps I also tackled it from the other end. I took - many vitamins
Women's multi vitamin
Folic acid 400mcg twice a day
Vitamin d
Zinc
Biotin
Iron
B-complex
Probiotics, orally, they must be the refrigerated kind as these are the live ones.
Cranberry capsules.
vitamin c
Fish oil

Not all of these were aimed at eliminating the b.v but I thought it couldn't hurt. Folic acid, vitamin d, the multi vitamin and the oral probiotics seemed to come up in a lot of other people's suggestions.

I tried inserting vitamin c instead of using apple cider vinegar, it is acidic too and less hassle. But it did make me itch.

The first time I tried to do all these steps I was a little slack and skip a day or skip the apple cider. Because it did seem I was cured....but it kept coming back after my period :( so I ensured I did it every day for a week, then twice every week and after my period even if there wasn't any signs.

It has really helped, after my last period it's been two weeks and no smell so far :)

My partner has also refrained from ejaculating inside me. It think this has helped too.

Also I bought natural, oranic pads and tampons. Using mostly pads throughout my period.

To everyone who has suffered this dreadful experience I hope it goes away for good.

It's taken me six months to really get rid of this, mostly due to the fact I was relieved of symptoms and stopped the steps. Don't stop keep going :) it will go away. Look after your body, restore your immune system from all fronts.

To add another health booster to this list, I tried a juice fast for one week, it's a challenge but wow, I looked easily five years younger and felt fantastic.

Good luck

For most people having multiple partners isn't the reason why most of us have BV even though It's one of the symptoms causing it. I've been with the same person for almost 5 years and didn't have any complications with BV or any other vaginal infection until about 2 years ago. I went to the doctors for a normal check up and was told I had BV, never heard of it before. I know that I had just began experiencing with douching and thought that could have been the cause. I stopped doing that but I still had BV. The doctor prescribed me a medication and it went away for about 10 days and came back. I started looking online because I don't want to keep going to the doctors and getting different medications for the same thing and getting my hopes up that it's gone with a not so happy ending. Also, I'm trying to get pregnant which is very difficult with having an imbalanced PH balance and taking medications.

I had seen what works for many woman without using expensive vitamins or constantly going to the doctors, that you can use plain yogurt on a tampon for 7 days, and yes drench the tampon ladies. You can also take a vinegar bath, adding two cups of vinegar to your bath water and try to do that at least once everyday for about 20 minutes, no less. Hell, the longer the better. Also, every time you use the bathroom instead of wiping with just toilet paper you can use a disinfectant wipe, or just a wash cloth with ONLY water. & YES EVERYTIME you use the bathroom. Also while showering try to use soap for sensitive skin, dove preferably even though it's a little more expensive. And AVOID bubble baths, bacteria sits in your water and may be worsening the BV. Try to cut out sugar from your diet and add grains and fresh vegetable and fruit, as well as drinking at least 2 cups of cranberry juice a day.

I know this may seem like a lot of things to do but you don't have to do them all. Main things are the yogurt and baths. However, I've done it all and I've been clear for about 2 weeks now.

Hope it works for you because it did for me!!!!

Hello Beautiful Ladies !
After a couple of weeks I AM CURED ! AFTER ONE DAY ! I know there's some of you that have been suffering for months and even years but I am here to tell you that this can be solved !

I read a post here earlier and someone suggested the whole Vitamin C-1000 and Vitamin D3.

I kid you not, It cured me within hours ! I'm so happy I can't even contain myself. Trust me I tried the whole garlic thing (The smell started disappearing but it was never completely gone), Liquid Chlorophyll (Never worked at all), Apple Cider Vinegar, and so on.

I never told anyone or approached my doctor about it because it's a very embarrassing predicament. All you have to do is buy Vitamin D3 (I brought the 10,000 one) take one, drink water and swallow it. Then buy Vitamin C-1000 capsule and insert it (I brought the Vitamin Shoppe one because it doesn't contain yeast, wheat, sugar or any of that other junk). The heat of your private area will dissolve it. And it cleared me out within hours ! I felt a huge difference !

I hope this helps someone out there like it helped me ! Stay strong ! There is hope ! (IM SO FREAKING HAPPY ! lol)

THIS CURED ME IN TWO DAYS
Just some background info im an african american woman, been suffering with mostly bv n occasional yeast infection on and off for 3 years. I've tried everything imaginable.

1- Stop Douching Immediately ! Its no good for your vagina nd also gets rid of good bacteria and can cause PID. Also do not use any soap around your vagina. only put soap in places where hair grows in that region. take your hand or a CLEAN washcloth with only water n wipe away any debris gently. The key is to leave your vagina ALONE, it will clean itself through discharge!

2- Take 1,000 mg of Vitamin C daily and insert 1 capsule only once and let it come out on its own. This will regulate vaginal PH, keeping it acidic.

3-.THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP. Go to the store and purchase Vitamin D3. Make sure each pill id atleast 2,000 iu. I have dark skin, do not go in the sun and don't drink milk so my Vitamin D levels were in the pits. Without Vitamin D your body cannot regulate intestinal or vaginal flora. It would be best to go to the doctor and ask for them to check your vitamin D levels and have them prescribe you the correct amount of iu's of vitamin d to take. I knew I was severely deficient so in the morning I took 10,000 ius of vitamin D and 1,000 mg of vitamin C. Then at night I took another 10,000 ius n went to bed.
Your odor will leave immediately as the good bacteria flood your vagina. I urge everyone to try this especially if you feel u might b deficient in this vitamin. Lastly, I previously was taking Vitamin D3 for months but only 4,000 ius. Dont be scared to up your dosage, I urge you to research. I hope this helps someone somewhere.

There is a simple solution to this...Forget all that garlic in the poon...douche and all that fun stuff. One word. Soap. Soap is your friend. Wash that thing every now and then. Give your poon a good scrubdown on a regular basis...
