Yogurt Treatment for Bacterial Vaginosis

Holistic Treatment: Internal

  • Plain Yogurt with no added sugar, or
  • Acidophilus tablets

Plain Yogurt can be eaten regularly to increase the body's supply of beneficial probiotics, to suppress yeast overgrowth that cause bacterial vaginosis. Acidophilus supplements can be taken to the same end.

Holistic Treatment: External Application

  • Plain Yogurt with no added sugar
  • Tampon applicator

Yogurt can be applied directly to the vaginal environment (try filling a tampon applicator with yogurt) to restore your supply of healthy bacteria and stop the odor and discharge.

[YEA]  Anita from Garland, NC: "Insert plain yogurt with a syringe or turkey baster. lay down as much as possible so it will not come down. A pad should be worn to catch the leakage. It really works and the itching will also stop almost instantly!!!!"

[YEA]  05/17/2011: I Did It from Saint Cloud, Mn replies: "I love earth clinic!! I read about a lot of people doing many things at one time but all I did was the yogurt soaked tampon 3 times for 2 days and it is gone!! Woo Hoo! It's been 2 months and that nasty smell has NOT come back. If it ever does I won't hesitate to do it again."
05/17/2011: From Texas from Garland, Tx replies: "What kind of yogurt did you use? And how did u soak the tampon?"
08/07/2011: Rick from Manila, Bulacan, Philippines replies: "yogurts are available in our country but my wife wants to try acidophilus for her bv are there any substitute for acidophilus since it is not available here.thanks!!!"
08/09/2011: Maria from Gippsland, Australia replies: "Rick, maybe you could try making one of these: rejuvelac, sauerkraut, kefir or kombucha. They all contain probiotics including acidophilus. Although each batch will differ in the amounts of acidophilus that they contain, these foods were being used sucessfully long before there were capsules of probiotics. Rejuvalac can be made from brown rice. All the best."
[YEA]  01/09/2012: Mountainvibe from Denver, Co replies: "Ladies, yogurt is great. It is extremely important that you use an organic PLAIN yogurt with live cultures. Do not use a processed or flavored (even vanilla) yogurt. Take good care of your body."
08/09/2012: Christie 14 from Liberty, Ky, Usa replies: "yogurt for vaginal smell did not work. Caused cramps and pain. My homeopathic dr recommended white oak tree bark. Boil, cool, and douche t. I. D. (3x/daily) for 7 days, then b. I. D. (2x/daily) the next 7 days, and lastly... Once daily for 7 days. Stop process while on period and pick up/continue process where you left off when period stops. The process took 2 months but I'm cured."

Yogurt, Oregano Oil

11/29/2010: Suzan from Lansing, Michigan: "Mix 1/2 c of plain yogurt (no sugar or fruit) with 5 drops of oil of oregano P73(full strength). Make sure to mix it well. A medicine syringe will be needed. Fill the syringe with the mixture. Lay on your back and insert cream into the vagina. Use 2x per day and wear a maxi pad (change pad often). Oil of Oregano is an anti bacterial, anti fungal and anti parasitic, so it will work for Trich, BV, and Yeast(fungus). Also make sure to soak the syringe in very hot soapy water for 45 minutes. This concoction makes a few doses, so keep it in the refrigerator."

06/15/2012: Daria from Cali replies: "I've done the boric acid for awhile and it works but kept coming back and then it seemed to stop working. Now I'm using the yogurt method and that's helping tremendously. I plan on sing boric acid and yogurt forever by rotating both and using after my totm."
