We all know, or at least have heard, of the miracle cure hydrogen peroxide. But, when it comes to treating sensitive issues like bacterial vaginosis, we?TMre likely all a little skeptical. However, we?TMve discovered that hydrogen peroxide is such a safe, effective remedy it is often passed down through families. So, you can safely count bacterial vaginosis as another win for the hydrogen peroxide hero of health and try it for yourself.
What Is the Issue?
While many of us don?TMt like to talk about vaginal health issues, the truth is they exist and they are relatively common. Bacterial vaginosis, like a number of other vaginal issues, is often caused by common sexual practices, such as douching. The condition is caused by an imbalance of bacteria in the vagina that results in inflammation and often a foul odor.
How Can I Naturally Treat Bacterial Vaginosis?
When it comes to treating sensitive parts of our bodies, we are even more concerned about treating them naturally and effectively. BV can very easily be treated utilizing a variety of methods, but one of the most effective is hydrogen peroxide.
How Does It Work?
Hydrogen peroxide is a natural disinfecting agent. The treatment functions to eliminate the bad bacteria in the body, which, in turn, allows the body to restore the natural levels of good bacteria. Hydrogen peroxide also helps eliminate inflammation-causing irritants and other common issues associated with bacterial vaginosis.
How Do I Use Hydrogen Peroxide for BV?
You can use hydrogen peroxide in a couple of different ways to treat BV. First, remember that you always want to use 3% hydrogen peroxide mixed with equal parts water to avoid a concentration of the treatment that could cause additional drying and irritation to the vagina. After you?TMve created the appropriate solution, you can use it as a douche or apply it to a tampon to be inserted directly. If using this option, do not leave the tampon inserted for longer than 30 minutes. These treatments should be followed until the odor subsides, indicating that the issue has been resolved.
In addition to treating BV with hydrogen peroxide, you may consider taking a regular probiotic or eating probiotic foods to avoid further issues with bacterial infection.

[NAY] So, I tried this for 5 days. h2o2 douche, the pros and vitamins. Here is Day 7 and all symptoms have returned with a vengeance!!!! UGH. I am going to try the Vitamin C but I am not optimistic.
[YEA] I am so thrilled! I had what I believe to be BV (thick, smooth, white-ish discharge, itching and burning, raw feeling on my vagina). I also was very bloated, it was terrible and interfering with my everyday activities. I had so much uncomfortable itchy wetness and the smell got worse every single day. I came on this website to find out what I had and how to cure it. I figured I'd try ACV, so in addition to drinking it as I do most days in my water in the morning, I put it on a tampon and used that internally. The pain was unbearable, it literally felt like someone was knifing the inside of my vagina. I came back on here and then decided to try hydrogen peroxide, hoping it would work. I put that on a tampon, left it on for 15 minutes, and for the rest of the day I didn't have extreme, thick wetness coming out! I had wetness but it was lighter, not super smelly and very little of it. I couldn't believe it! So I tried it again at night before I went to bed. I woke up and had some wetness but again, very thin and a small amount, not like before where it felt like it was pouring out. I used it this morning again since it was working. All day today, no wetness coming out except when I went to the gym, but it was very thin, small amount, and not smelly! After gym no wetness for the rest of the day! I feel healed. I'm going to keep it up for the next two days just to make sure I'm completely over it, but I'm so thrilled this worked when I felt like nothing would.
I see that a lot of women are stating that the fishy like odor is coming from the vagina... My vagina doesn't have a bad odor, just the yellow cheese like, sometimes brown discharge. My vuvla has the fishy smell. I get vagina pains, like needles are in there and abdominal pains, itchiness and burning... But the smell is disgusting!! I know within my heart its BV though. I had Pelvic Inflammatory Disease a year ago and took antibiotics and cleared it up. The BV symptoms never went away, I just covered it up with soap and baby powder... Recently my boyfriend left me because I informed him about my symptoms... We were never intimate though but he couldn't "be with a girl with an on going problem" anyways , its been taking over my life. It's an everyday struggle. I've been fighting this for years, even when I was a little girl. I'm 18 now... It feels good to know I'm not alone. Will the h2o2 help the fishy smell go away on my vulva if I douche???? Someone please help. I can't take it anymore.
