03/22/2009: Bobbi from Louisville, KY: "I have been fighting BV for about 2 years off and on, with no success. I am so thankful for this website. I have done the 1/2 h202 1/2 water douche and it seems to be working. I am experiencing dryness during intercourse, and wondered if there is something I could use naturally as lubrication. I'm afraid to do anything to upset the balance right now. Any input would be greatly appreciated. God Bless."Replies
03/23/2009: C.S.M from VERO BEACH, FL replies: "Try melting coconut oil and pouring about 1/4 inch deep into a silicone (or supported paper cupcake cup)--then refrigerate.
Break this resulting solid coin shape 1/2 or 1/4s. When you're ready to use it, you can insert a few minutes ahead of time...And ENJOY!
Do use care to protect your linens."
03/23/2009: Kelly from Nashville, TN replies: "Jojoba is a great natural lubricant as it mimics the sebum in skin."
03/23/2009: Jessica from Jefferson, GA replies: "The best lubricant I have found is ______ Extra Virgin COCONUT OIL.Try it and I think you'll be astonished. It is also an excellent skin conditioner just apply as you would any skin cream."
04/08/2009: Charlotte from Dallas, TX replies: "Do NOT use coconut oil if you intend to use the usual latex condoms. Oils break down latex. If you are using another form of birth control, or sheepskin condoms, then coconut oil is fine to use. So is olive oil, which may be cheaper."
[YEA] 03/20/2009: Stacy from Bronx, New York: "I am so thankful I found this site. I have been suffering with BV for about 1 year and it has been awful. I have spent hours searching the web for anything that could help, then I found this site with helpful info. I just came from my GYN and there are no signs of BV. I never would have been able to accomplish this without reading many many of these entries. I wasn't as strict as I should have been but this basically what I did. I started my day by taking 2 folic acid and 2 acidophilus. Then when I got home on Monday, Wednesday and Friday I would douche with 50/50 peroxide and water and sometimes open a acidolphilus capsule and add that to the douche. Then when I went to bed I would take 2 more folic acid and 2 more acidolphilus. I would also open a acidophilus capsule and pour that directly into the vagina. On Tuesday and Thursday I didn't douche. I began to just take the 1 of the folic acid and the acidophilus in the morning and the night. That is the basic regimen. After do this for about 3 weeks I just mixed and matched the procedure as I saw fit. If I thought I smelled anything I would immediately douche and the smell was gone. Yes, this is a lot to do but it is better then the horrible creams the doctor was prescribing. All they do is hide it for a short time. What makes me most happy is that I just came from the GYN told her everything I have been doing and I asked her to test me for BV. I am happy to report that she says everything seems to be normal. No yeast infection and no BV. I am so very grateful that I found this site and I am thankful to all of the women who have shared their stories. I don't know if I will ever get BV again, but if I do, I know what to do immediately. Everyone please keep sharing your stories and I will give updates of my status."Replies
06/01/2009: Aprilluvv from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "use panty liners with ODER CONTROL, this will keep you from smelling bad until you can find something that works. To date, I have found nothing that offers a permenant solution and I have tried all of the formulas posted PLUS garlic orally and placed in the vagina. Good luck!!!"
[NAY] 03/06/2009: Ozena from New York, NY: "I have used these remedies folic acid and the acv doche and the acidolphillus and I smell the same, someone gave me a STD years ago and I had sex with someone new protected and i think it through my system out of wack, I said wtf? is this? discharge fish smell? I went to the doctor and they gave me creamn and a pill and its the same, I feel bad depreesed how in the hell can I work with ppl knowing they smell my vagina that is plain nasty and thats how I feel, what man would want me and this? How do we go out in public and your vagina smells like catfish? The doctors should do more omg I used to be so happy go lucky before this and now? sad and lonely I smell bad, I wish yall luck but I think its over for me"Replies
04/30/2009: Shannon from Boston, MA replies: "Hi Ozena, I wasn't sure if you meant to write "ACV douche" when you were referring to the cure that didn't work for you, but if you didn't, and you HAVE been douching with acv then STOP!! and THERES STILL HOPE!! The douche remedy is with 3% hydrogen peroxide and water, not with acv. (as a frequent visitor to this site, i can understand why you might immediately turn to acv for your every need, but with BV, acv is actually said to make it MUCH WORSE!) so try it again with the right ingrediants, and maybe you'll have better luck!"
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 03/02/2009: Gina from Pensacola, FL: "Hello friends/sisters in BV,
like everyone else, i have suffered with BV for about 12 years and have gone through all the antibiotic treatments, without a cure. Until i found this site, i had always felt alone and that no one could understand me, not even my sisters or bestfriends..it was my dirty secret, i was in tears when i found this site and read other stories of never being able to spontaneously have sex with anyone, always douching, always wearing tampons because of the disgusting discharge and odor...but then i found this site about 3 months!!!THANK GOD...I bought the folic acid and acido pills AND I douched with the peroxide AND betadine...i went for an all out assault and attack against my vagina!!!!! It was a miracle, i was clean and fresh for the first time in over 10 years....i am not completely cured of this plague BUT...the foul odor is completely gone, the discharge is minimal, and the only thing that i do to maintain this is to take the folic acid and acidophilus pills AND perform the douche..once every 2 weeks...AND I'M HAPPY !!! Like other women, i notice that it is worst during my menstrual, so i always do this afterwards. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO HAS SHARED HER STORY....
Gina in Florida"
[WORKED TEMPORARILY] 02/06/2009: Carolyn from Boise, Idaho: "I tried the peroxide douche, the acidophillous pills and the folic acid. It worked for the first couple days and I was in shock. But then the smell came back. My period started, but I kept doing what I was doing which caused me to get a very bad urinary tract infection. I took the acidophillous pills vaginally and I noticed they were not disolving as I thought they would. Perhaps that is what caused the UTI.
Since then I have been trying to figure out anything that works. One day this last weekend I smelled so bad I ended up doing 3 peroxide douches, plus 4 acidophillous pills. I honestly think you can overdo it.
Now, I take a bath and pour apple cider vinegar in the water. I open up my vagina to let the water sort of wash in and out. I then take 2 folic acid pills in the morning and night. I also have gotten acidophillous that was from a health store that is stored in the refrigerator. I take one in the morning and night. I may start to do one during the middle of the day as I notice my underwear get wet and then start to smell.
I found at least at this very moment that the peroxide cleaned me out right as I douched but the smell would come back fairly quickly. I don't know what combination will eventually work. I know it has cut down on the smell by about 90% when it works. But on days when it doesn't, I am once again forced to deal with the embarassment that people can smell me."
02/10/2009: Carolyn from Boise, Idaho replies: "I have been struggling with just the right way to handle this problem. As I mentioned before, I used 1/2 peroxide and 1/2 h20 douche's but they didn't seem to work long term. I then used 50 million acidophillous pills but when they didn't disolve properly I got an infection.
I started to take 2 folic acid pills in the morning and 2 at night. I also changed from a pill to acidophillous capsules that have 14 billion bacteria. I put one in me morning and night and sometimes in the mid afternoon. That resolved the problem for a week. However now I have a yeast infection. I think the key to this is not to do too much. I tried to flush my vagina out with a syringe filled with liquid. I think that was just too much.
I am finding that you don't really need to douche at all or at least I don't. As long as I add the apple cider vinegar to my bath it seems to do the trick.
This isn't as easy as I thought it would be. It's a lot of work in progress for each individual person to find what works for them."
[NAY] 01/31/2009: Angela from Las Vegas, Nevada: "I am 21 and have been suffering with this awful affect for 7 Years (Since my first period) and something has got to change. First I liked to say I have tried all the medical treatments such as flag, clind, and even something called the oddessy. Ive been taking them so long my body just drinks them up without any positive affects on my body. I don't have any other std's and seem to be all around healthly. why won't it go away? So I have resorted to other women's feedback to help. I tried the 2 100bill Acidohil, 2folic acid, and douched 1/2 peroxide 1/2 h2o. It still hasn't given me any comfort. Can I still conceive? My question is for those who tried this method and it didn't work. What other methods are you trying????? Thanks, Angela"Replies
01/31/2009: Tenay from Atlanta, GA replies: "Hi Angela! I was tired of suffering from this too and the folic acid, acidophilus, and 1/2 h2o2 and water helped only initially. I felt like it was pushing the bacteria back into me only to return later. After a couple of times of trying this, my body just ignored everything I did. I did extensive research and decided to go on a limb and try the boric acid suppositories. I made them myself, but in most pharmacies you can ask the pharmacist to prepare them for you. I use the size 0 capsules and fill those with 600 mg of the BC. you can either insert this twice a day (morning and night) for 10 to 14 days or once at night for 14 days depending on the extent of the condition. I did twice a day for 14 days. While I was doing this, I took a very good probiotic and continue to take this. have not had a problem since. Hope this helps!!!"
09/04/2009: Erica from Baltimore, Md replies: "I have had this since 2003 when I was pregnant and for a year I would have to change my panty shield every hour and wash up in public bathrooms just so I wouldn't smell. My doctor would prescribe me with Vandazole (generic Metrogel) and I started using it once a week and it works like magic. I never ever smell again but I know I am not cured because I know the symptoms before they come. It is expensive though so I am going to try the home remedies here but I am just going to use it every week and see what happens."
03/29/2010: Chrissy from St Charles, New Orleans replies: "i have had bv for about 5 years and nothing seem to work. when i tried douching with pd it worked well for me but after sex you must douch unless it will come back. i douch, take 4 folic acid pills (400mg) a day and itake 2 acidophilus pills (1millons) a day. i have tried everything and nothing works as well as this douch when you douch uses distilled water with it, you will see the difference.and reader garlic pills did not work for me at all"
[YEA] 01/18/2009: Melisia from R, NC: "As most of you have stated, I was eternally grateful to have found this website. I switched birth control methods earlier this year and found my body in a pattern of recurring BV. After 2 visits to my doctor and 3 rounds of antibiotics, I decided that was enough and I was going to rid myself of this problem. I first started with the Acidophilus(refrigerated kind) and Folic Acid pills 2x a day. I also washed with the 1/2 and 1/2 Apple Cider Vinegar and Water combo. This provided some relief, but still experienced some discharge and itching. I then began using the 1/2 hydrogen peroxide (3%) douche before bedtime and this was a mircle. Instant relief. However, I did still experience some itching over the next few days. I increased by Acidophilus and Folic Acid intake to 3 pills a day and I did the Hydrogen Peroxide douche every other evening. I also have not been using any soap to wash my vaginal area, only the 1/2 and 1/2 mix of ACV and water or just plain water. Wow, what a difference this home remedy has made in my life. I can't wait for my visit to the doctor for my annual appointment so I can tell him about this remedy. Of course, it probably won't be shared with other patients, but I'm telling everyone I know."
[YEA] 01/16/2009: B from Smiths, Bermuda: "I had been diagnosed with a mild case of BV back in Late October and because I knew nothing about it I told the doctor that I will wait it out because I do not like taking medicines. Well it just kept getting worse and worse. The most embarrassing would be when I was having sex, I could smell it strong and it was so embarrassing. So I had just had enough and looked up cures online and found this site. I was sceptable about trying the HYDROGEN PEROXIDE DOUCHE, FOLIC ACID, ACIDOPHILUS and I basically came home everyday and read peoples comments and stories. Then I decided that I would try it. And guess what.... It seems to be working.
Here is what I have been doing. I take 2 folic acid tablets and one acidophilus tablet in the morning. Then when I get home from work I take 2 more folic acid tablets and one acidophilus. The when i get my bath I douche with a 1/2 Hydrogen Peroxide 1/2 water solution and after that i get a bath and put 1 acidophilus tablet as far as I can get it in the vagina. I have waited for a week and done this religiously and it is working. No more smell and no more discharge. Today makes it a week since I started and I have decided that I will only take 2 folic acid tablets and 1 acidophilus in the morning and douche less often because it seems like thing are back to normal but I just want to make sure.
I just want to say thanks to all the people who post here because all of the stories gave me the confidence in the method to finally go out and get the products and try them myself. I feel so much better now. I hope my story helps someone out there who is spectial about trying it. Trust me you will be glad you did when you see the results."
[YEA] 01/14/2009: H from Bixby, Oklahoma: "So far so good as a treatment after the antibiotic cream. I was on Clindesse about a month ago and since going off Clindesse, I have used a hydrogen peroxide/ distilled water wash with a few drops of tea tree oil each time I shower.
I noticed when I douched with the mixture I had an extra discharge that I did not find pleasant. Just after finishing Clindesse, I inserted two to three acidopholous caplets vaginally for three nights in a row. I think this kept a yeast infection at bay although I did have some sensitivity/redness when doing both the hydrogen peroxide and vaginal acidopholous caplets.
I continue to take acidopholous caplets and folic acid daily, in addition to Vitamin E & B-complex.
Also helping immensely with the odor: an occasional apple-cider vinegar/distilled water douche. I've done that a day after sex as well as after my period. It helps keep the odor away quite well. I just bought a Summer's Eve douche that I refill with half organic apple-cider vinegar/distilled water.
Thank you so much Earth Clinic for all of the advice on a problem that can be pretty embarrassing! Now I know the steps to take to prevent BV!"
01/14/2009: Terri from Boone, NC: "Please inform me if my sexual partner needs to be treated, I just found out I have BV 2 days ago and I have taken probitics for years. I am vegitarian and eat little sugar, my vitamin has 800 ml of folic acid. I have a very mild case with no itching and only a smell with sex which has only happened once since my last period ended that was enough to go get checked and diagnosed. I have a feeling it was from the 2 of us with new sex partners this summer and then coming back together. I dont want this to get worse and am doin a gentle apple cider vinigear/ herbal douche with warm water as well as supplements, yogurt, and good bacterias daily. I am considering the peroxide today.. "
[YEA] 01/13/2009: Georgie from Washington, DC: "Hyrogen Peroxide seems to be working, been doing to he douche for two days now in addition to 800 mg of Folic Acid. Dr. diagnosed be with yeast infection even though i told her i believed it was BV. needless to say the Yeast Infection Medicine i was prescribed did NOTHING
Home Remedies seem to be doing the trick, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!"
[YEA] 01/13/2009: Miss from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida: "This website is a blessing and I'm so glad that I found it. I've tried several of the holistic remedies and they have all worked successfully. I use 3% hydrogen peroxide to take care of yeast infections as well as BV. With only one use, it works like a charm. I put about 2TB of 3% hydrogen peroxide and 2TB of water into a tube used to give babies medicine (basically you are filling up half the tube with 3%HP and the rest with water) insert it into the vagina, tilt your hips and leave it in for about 4 minutes and there it is, instant relief. I also take folic acid tablets on a regular basis as well as lactobacillis pills I get from a natural food store. I also eat a yogurt everyday. All of this is definitely helping any woman issue I could ever develop. Thank you earth clinic!!"
01/06/2009: in dyre need of a cure from New York, New York: "I am a 28 year old. I have been suffering from Bacterial Vaginosis since a teenager. I'm a very assertive women and always went to the doctor and told her straight up, I don't like how it smells. The odor is so overbearing. I take a wiff and want to just die. So i've been browsing the earth clinic because the dr's prescriptions are quick fixes and the BV always comes back.
I think with alot of these cures or prevention you have to do it for longer. We all want quick fixes but the key is to maintain. I did the 50% hydrogen peroxide 50% water and was so happy that my vagina smelled good.
I am very sexual person with my boyfriend. we have amazing sex and I know that he notices the smell. I always make sure to wash before he comes over. but during sex I can smell it. and it wreaks. He things the discharge is sexy and calls it cream but I don't mind the "cream" which is actually yeast. but my underwear minds it alot. sometimes it's embarrassing to take off my underwear for my boyfriend and their is all this white junk dried up or drying in my underwear. looks yucky. but the smell is what is most horrific. I can smell it through my pants. yuck. my boyfriend says he knows when my period is coming because of a smell. he doesn't make a big deal about it but it still bothers me because I can smell it.
Ok so I did the half water half hydrogen peroxide (3% for topical use) after finding this site (I was at my wits ends) and it worked for a while but then i didn't mantain with folic acid or the acidophilus.
I notice that the smell and heavy discharge comes on more frequently after sex with my boyfriend (we haven't used condoms in over 4 years) but i've always had the odor problem as long as i can remember. My vagina sweats easy to the point where my underwear is soaked and I know the bacteria is just breeding down in the wet heat.
I've tried everything to maintain clean hygiene down there. but the smell is awful. while i am bathing i could smell it. I wash correctly down there.
So now i'm trying it this way and I will come back to let you know if it worked or not. I've been doing it for 48hrs now.
I first started off with a "loading dose" of 1600 mg of folic acid) I have 400 mg so i took 4 of them at a time. Then I inserted 2 acidophilus pills in my vagina. I had the capsule so I opened it up and and poured it in my hand and shoved it up my vagina.
When i woke up this morning the smell wasn't as bad as when I started. But I could still smell a little something something. But the discharge wasn't as heavy as it normally is on my underwear which is a good sign.
I take 1 400 mg of folic acid in the morning and another 1 400 mg at night b4 I go to bed.
Tomorrow I have a gyn regular check up with my dr and i'm going to tell her what i've been doing and see what she says. but i'm definitely not going to go on any prescription she recommends.
I'm going to do these steps from 2mmrw and let u know how it went
1. take 1 (400 mg) of folic acid in the morning
2. b4 taking a shower use a syringe and insert 50% water 50% hydrogen peroxide into my vagina. I'm pretty flexible so i'm going to do it laying down with feet up in the air, pelvic lifted so it can get all in the creases of my vagina and rid me of that foul odor
3. b4 bed insert 2 acidophilus pills into my vagina. I have the capsules so i'll open it up and insert the powder with my fingers.
4. take another 1 (400 mg) of folic acid.
5. pray that the smell goes away!!!!!
WISH ME LUCK
I tried to be as open and honest about my experience. Having BV does something to your self esteem. So whatever I can do to help another women with BV i'll do because alot of women are suffering from this."
[QUESTION] 01/28/2009: Sarah from Las Vegas, NV replies: "Hi! I just read your article and I was wondering how that routine worked for you? Also what your dr said when you told him/her about what you were doing?? I'm going in about a week to my gyno and so I'm just wondering what to expect! Thanks much, Sarah"
[YEA] 01/06/2009: Deborah from Newport, Oregon: "A couple weeks ago I caught a nasty little head cold and while my immune system was hard at work combating the cold virus, the bad lil' bacterias were taking advantage in "other" areas.
I thought at first the little itch and discharge to be the starting of a yeast infection. So I treated it with your common over the counter "yeast" cures and NOTHING happened. The itch, milky discharge and every now and then with thorough inspection, a faint odor. Hummm....
I found this site through investigation and read through many comments sent in by women experiencing similar symptoms. After several cure options to choose from, here is what I did to help cure this BV.
Local drug store:
Florajen 3 - 15 billion CFU
Folic Acid 800mg
Hydrogen Peroxide 3%
Came home and immediately took 2 Florajen, 2 Folic Acid, 50% HP and 50% H2O thorough douche and went to bed. Woke the next morning with no itch and clear discharge with a "sweet" odor but not foul. The discharge still uncommon for me, I continued 2 Florajen and 2 Folic acid by mouth 2 x daily, once in the morning and once at night totaling, 4 Florajen and 4 Folic Acid tabs for that day.
Woke the next morning with still the same discharge symptoms, continued the 2 Florajen and 2 Folic Acids by mouth and went to the store and bought Primadophilus Optima 35 Billion CFU and treated myself as follows:
1 Primadophilus Optima inserted vaginally 1x
Continued the 2 Florajen and 2 Folic Acids that evening and went to bed.
Woke with still the same discharge and continued the 2 Florajen and 2 Folic Acids by mouth BUT also:
inserted vaginally 1 Folic Acid tab vaginally.
Took 2 more Florajen and 2 more Folic Acids by mouth that evening and went to bed.
Woke the next morning and upon inspection learned that my vajay is happy once again!!! BUT also learned that I am starting to get a bladder infection. For F$#!& sake!!! So I went and bought:
Natures Way Cranberry Fruit 45 mg tabs because drinking 100% cranberry juice is awful and I will be taking 6 tabs of this a day with plenty of water until the bladder is happy once again. GOOD GOD!!! If anything changes I will for sure report."
01/06/2009: Toy from Baltimore, Md: "Okay so Ive been on the internet surfing for home remedies for my on going BV problem. I decided to take this route because I am just tired of taking time off to go the the doctor and then to take those nasty disgusting metrodinazole pills. and then to have a doctor look at you like your disgusting. Im just out right embarrased and disgusted with this whole BV diagnosis...I mean I absolutley hate it...I have had it now for 6 years it started with my first pregnancy now two kids/6 year later I still have it....So I am happy to say that I am glad that I m not the only women in the world with this condition and other can feel my pain. boy was i feeling alone i have cried and cried over this. but now i see that there is hope and not just some antibotic...so i am goin to buy the folic acid and acidophilus wash with peroxide and see what happens...ill keep u guys posted....take care...and keep the BV away......"Replies
08/17/2011: Bre from Clementon, Nj replies: "to all the ladies out there suffering with BV, the cure is simple eat yogurt everyday plain yogurt vanilla yogurt any kind of yogurt as long as it has live active cultures. I was a long time sufferer of BV untill I started eating yogurt everyday. I eat any where from one cup to 5 cups of yogurt a day.

So ladies take my advice it worked for me and I have suffered with BV for well over 10 years. try it you have nothing to lose but the odor."
