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.

Sounds like an std. Go to your doctor asap.

@Steph... that sounds like something else other than BV! You should see a gyno...

You may possibly have a yeast infection maybe? Because a yeast infection is somewhat like that, has some BV symptoms in there but the "yellow cheese" in your description, is described as yeast infection because that has the symptom of "Cottage cheese" discharge. Hope you figure it out. I have BV as well and I'm trying to find some home remedies other than taking my prescription for 7 days.

Try to find a physician who deals with gyn issues and urology. The "yellow cheese" could be yeast but the fishy odor could be something more serious.

Definitely agree with the other posters in this thread... be on the safe side and see a specialist who will take a culture to give you a definitive diagnosis of what it is. I had a friend who smelled so bad, she left behind an odor after riding in my car for only ten minutes. I urged her to see a gyno. Once she finally did she was diagnosed with an STD (I forget now what it was...) and it was easily treated. If left untreated these things can cause serious harm. If it turns out to be BV, I've read that Borax capsules (make them yourself) inserted into the vagina for a week or 2 is helpful. I would also take high dose probiotics.

[YEA]   When there is itching or burning you should not try to treat it yourself, that is the sign of something serious. And if anything the tampon is just soaking up your discharge. It may work a little, but it's just gonna come back.

You got to understand, ladies, that your clothes and underwear and pants harbor bacteria from your vaginas, so you HAVE to wear panty liners daily to protect yourself from infection. And if you have an infection, you keep re-infecting yourself.

I recently had an issue I could not seem to get rid of until I realized this. No itching, burning, nor green discharge but it was yellowish and smelled like hell! Tried Monistat. No luck. Then I realized it was either BV or an STD. So first, I got some Borax and added to my detergent (Wisk that removes oils) I washed all my underwear in it, with HOT water. Including my pants, as it seemed the smell was seeping into my clothes. I then hung it all out in the sun to dry, with the inside out area exposed to the sunlight. (Sunlight's UV rays KILL bacteria that cause smells in your wet clothes.) If you have an infection I recommend liners with baking soda to help mask your smell until your discharge is over, but for everyday normal use I recommend unscented cotton liners. I started douching with 3% peroxide and it worked for a day or two, but the yellowy discharge and the gawd awful, obnoxious smell would come back. At night the discharge would run amuck if I slept with no underwear (sorry this is gross) I would wake up with it on my thighs, AND the sheets. I called the clinic to make an appointment and they gave me a date almost two weeks later!

I decided to try one more thing for relief and possible cure in the meantime. After researching this for a few weeks prior I armed myself with 35% Food grade peroxide, distilled water and some lactobacillus tablets from a health food store. Also got a turkey baster from a dollar store. (don't laugh.)

I first mixed a weak solution of the peroxide with distilled water and got in the tub where my bottom was at an angle and used the turkey baster to insert. After I did this for a third time I noticed it was starting to get uncomfortable (probably because I was literally killing and washing everything out) so I had to fill a douche bottle with water to rinse out. I decided to make a stronger solution the LAST time around. Let me tell you. It didn't burn, but felt like Mike Tyson was in there beating my walls. I rinsed with water, let out a long "Wooooo! " and when I was done I felt like I had a long night of sex!

Then I inserted two lactobacillus tables (NOT capsules) as far up as they would go and went to bed. I also took three per day orally. No smell or discharge the next day, nor the day after. So I inserted another two before bed on day three. It has been a week later and to date, I have NO smell, NO discharge! I cancelled my appointment. Hell, I don't see the point in going now. (And if you think I should still go, no, because if it was something else I'd be having symptoms again.

Ladies, BELIEVE the hype. 35% food grade peroxide IS the TRUTH for your hoo-ha. You have to be careful handling as it will burn your skin and turn it white but seems to work fine on mucus membranes. NEVER, EVER USE FULL STRENGTH!!! Always dillute in a glass container or empty brown preoxide bottle, I'd say no more than 15%. The good bacteria like lactobacillus produce peroxide when it kills germs, so while douching may rinse some out, it does not kill them if they are left inside. By adding the tablets to my vagina PLUS taking them I was able to re-colonize an army of the healthy bacteria to ward off the invaders!

I am a real woman who did her research and I will say I will only buy 3% drugstore peroxide to empty and use the plastic bottle, as it's made of special plastic that may not be safe for other containers besides glass. I realize this may be long but I want to help the ladies that need the help. I put hours of research into this, and did what I had to do and swore if it worked I would share the news.

One other thing I will share - to keep your vagina fresh DO NOT USE SUMMERS EVE WIPES! They seemed to make my problem worse. Use Hemorrhoid wipes instead (which are just witch hazel) or the peroxide wipes you can buy at the drugstore. They even make peroxide sprays which are great and I recommend the 3% solution at the store for freshening up on the go and use to clean up after sex before or after shower. Re-use the empty bottle with your 35% super dilluted forumula and always use DISTILLED WATER! Good luck ladies!

[YEA]  I am so happy for discovering this site! I had my first BV last year in November, out of nowhere as I am with the same partner for years. Since then it came back 3 times! I was desperate. The doctors would prescribe me antibiotics, and tell me to wear cotton underwears and avoid excessive hygiene and waxing. Every time I left the doctor office, I almost cried, that's how helpless I felt.

When my BV came back again last week, I just decided there must be a different approach, so I spent several hours on the internet, and found out about hydrogen peroxide. Just one single douche made the smell and the burning go away! It was 3 days ago, so I am curious how long I will feel good, whether it will come back or not, but so far the results are amazing! Thank you so much to all of you who took their time to write here and to share your experiences!

The research I have done about using hydrogen peroxide when treating bv is you must use it 3 to 5 days before stopping, I don't think 1 day is enough. I thought about stopping but today is my second day.

Does the hydrogen peroxide burn a little when you use it or did I put too much in? I'm so sick of having bv's I used to never get them until a year ago and now I have had 3 and I just want to cry because it grosses me out and I don't want to keep going to the doctor. This is my second night trying it and it does burn. Help!

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]  I used this method last night and this morning; the smell is gone but I'm spotting. There is no way it is period related. I've read almost every post on this site relating to BV and H2O2 and I'm confident it will work but I'm a little nervous about the bleeding. There is a little burning sensation on the outside as well. Am I ok?

[YEA]  The Hydrogen Peroxide has helped me significantly with BV. I was once prescribed with antibiotics, but it came back soon enough. I added 50/50 of water and Hydrogen Peroxide and I douched myself. The odor was gone! Hydrogen Peroxide was a miracle for me.

@YEA, when's the last time you had a BV? By douching hydrogen peroxide solution, did it cure your BV completely? How about now, do you still have BV? I'm sorry if I have so many questions 'cause right now I'm suffering from BV and it's recurring for about a year now and I'm really really FRUSTRATED to the point that I'm really depressed, I'm married and I'm worried that I might neglecting my husband's "needs"... Seriously, I envy those women who doesn't suffer from BV, whose enjoying their "sex life" with their husband, confident about their body, etc. IT SUCKS YOU KNOW...! I've already went to 3 doctors and STILL NOTHING HAPPENS, they keep on telling you about your "hygiene" and prescribing you with Metronidazole even though I'v e already done EVERYTHING THEY SAY but still my BV keeps on coming back! I'M GOING NUTS ABOUT MY BV! And what adds to my suffering and worry is the "limited" resources here in our country when it comes to that issue (BV), medicines are too expensive, as well as organic foods which are healthy, affordable foods here are not that mostly processed unlike there in America...

So PLEASE help, how will I use that Hydrogen Peroxide (inside my Vagina), how much will I dilute it with water? I'm quite worried 'cause I know that Hydrogen Peroxide are only applied topically like on your skin. So please need help. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Utilisation of hydrogen peroxide in the treatment of recurrent bacterial vaginosis.

Cardone A, Zarcone R, Borrelli A, Di Cunzolo A, Russo A, Tartaglia E.

Minerva Ginecol. 2003 Dec;55(6):483-92. Review. English, Italian.

The study concluded, "Hydrogen peroxide represents a valid alternative to conventional treatments for recurrent bacterial vaginosis, and associates the absence of collateral effects with low costs, excellent tolerability and real therapeutic efficacy."

All of you ladies are wonderful for the advice and telling your experiences.

I've battled with BV for about 7 years. Tried the H2O2 50/50 last night. Definitely feels better but I am also taking Acidophilus, Vit D3, and Vit C. I need to kick this problem once and for all. Will keep you updated.

I started to get BV years ago, but sporadically, usually when I had a new partner. I remember finding VH essentials BV treatment and it totally worked, I loved it! Then I just didn't get BV for awhile, well now Im with someone new, who is uncircumsized...never had that before. I started out with UTI's that wouldn't go away then yeast infections, then several months after I started getting BV again. I tried the VH essentials and sometimes the metrogel, the VH essentials was always gentler on my body....well to my dismay they stopped making it. I went to specialists and I went to a homeopathic doctor who gave me other suppositories, I got a horrible yeast infection from those and then I get results back that I still had BV....enough already, my boyfriend felt like it was him, who knows, I feel like the medical community has no clue and I don't know why they aren't helping us, I get so many different answers from specialists, my gyno, the internet, the homeopathic doctor, we just decided to stop having sex for a couple months. When we returned to sex, we made sure he washed himself and we used condoms, but then surely we got lazy in the heat of the moment and didn't follow our rules, well guess what, it just came back. I was in so much pain from a yeast infection, went to my gyno, he saw yeast, and sent out for labs, so here I am waiting on the results and I feel the odor and discharge getting worse. Vh essentials stopped making their BV treatment so I was left with this option over the weekend til I get the results, I have never douched before, it was a little weird going in and I don't know if I did it right. I took the advice of another poster and did 50/50 HP, water and I put a tad raw apple cider vinegar. Instead of doing it twice a day, because I'm sensitive girl, I'm going to do once a day until I get the results on Monday. Any advice on how to correctly douche? I only felt a little run out, it felt very very weird and some air got up there, and I ended up not using the whole bag, it was a little burny after I was done, but after 10 minutes it is subsiding. I think I will just do the 50/50 tomorrow and no vinegar from here out. Lastly, I did go on a very low carb diet too when BV and yeast would just not go away. I started to get lazy on that about month ago and perhaps think that is another reason why it came back. Back to eating lots of protein, veggies, cheese and dairy, nuts and seeds...it is so boring and I love bread :( lol

Just updating my results, so after the first douche last night, it was feeling great, no smell or nothing, no discharge, then I woke this morning and it was feeling dry down there, I did the 50/50, no straight up HP. I cleaned my area and just kept on with my day, I decided to try the tampon thing instead, I only did it for like 20 minutes, and this was early in the day. Well now it is almost dinner time and it was starting to smell down their again. So I just did another douche. I said I was only going to do one douche a day since I know my body and Im always sensitive to everything. I hope this helps again, I just hope I don't end up with a yeast infection. I have a YI pill on hand and I doubled my supplement of a probiotic today. Ive been on the probiotic for about 2 weeks now, just one pill a day, 30 billion live, and I've been on folic acid for about 2 or 3 months now. Arggghhh, I just want this to be gone, maybe Im just not being patient enough. Question though, those that did the douche for several days, did you do the douche, feel great for the day and then the next day feel that was still a little there?

The #1 biggie to keep in mind when you are dealing with an uncut lad, is that you treat him as well as yourself. Even if the sex is protected, he can very easily contract the yeast and the BV from you, and harbor it in the wee folds he has. When he touches himself and you (which will happen, even with condoms) he will reintroduce the yeast and bacteria back into your vagina.

I have some experience with uncut lads, and it's a beast to keep them clean and hence yourself. The main thing is, unless he wants to get cut, you have to treat his willy the same way you treat yourself. If you're using the home remedy on yourself, you must use it on him as well. Think of it like a tiny vagina on top of his willy, only when he washes normally, make sure he gets in those folds ALL the way. Cotton swabs may be of use if there are places he can't reach or treat. It's a bit like owning a western shar pei and why most US folks get clipped when they're bairns.

That alone should help a wee bit.

I think they still make the VH Essentials treatment but they call it Vaginal Odor treatment or something. You can find the labels both online and I compared them and they have the same ingredients. My guess is someone told them they couldn't claim to treat BV for some reason.

[YEA]  Just wanted to recommend what I tried for BV.. Had a case of BV, and I knew what it was as I have had it before.. Didn't want to get antibiotics, because that would probably just give me thrush, so I looked at earth clinic.

I bought some 3% H2O2 and a syringe, filled the syringe with 1ml H2O2 and the rest water, and inserted it into my vagina while I showered. Immediately, this took the smell away, but temporarily. After showering, I also warmed up some organic coconut oil, emptied a capsule of prebiotic and added a powdered probiotic, a few drops of tea tree oil and soaked the tampon in this mix.

I inserted the tampon and left it for about an hour, and it seems to be helping - the smell has definitely subsided. I have continued this for 2 days so far, it seems as though it is slowly but surely fixing the issue!

I have also been taking 2 probiotic capsules and a spoon of probiotic in my cereal, and avoiding sugar where possible.

I will reply to this post with my feedback after a few days to let you know whether it worked or not!

[YEA]  It seemed like I was more susceptible to getting infection than the normal person. a couple of days after having sex (unprotected) I noticed a clumpy white discharge so I though it was a YI. I went out and bought the CVS version of monistat 7. I began to use it and my discharge began to change colors. At first it was white, then changed to a pinkish one (by this point I stopped using monistat) then it changed to like an organgish color then it was yellow followed by brown. The brown discharge was just old blood because I take BC. okay so what I did was take an EMPTY douche applicator and mixed it with half peroxide and half boiled water. I let this solution cool down after shaking it up. Immediately after this I noticed a change and that the discharge had calmed down. A couple hours later I douched again (make sure you always rinse out and clean the nozzle after each use) and after this time I no longer had ANY discharge or smell. So the next day (sunday) I douched once when I woke up and once before I went to bed. still absolutely no discharge. The next day I went to my healthcare provider and I told her everything I had done. She then took a swab of the inside of my vagina and told me I was as clean as a whistle. I was shocked to know that she said that by doing this I had actually cured the BV. She did say one time was enough because I didn't want to be too rough on my vagina and that doctors don't recommend douching because it can sometimes push bacteria further up. Well from now on a couple hours after sex I will douche with peroxide and water and I will also do this after my period is over. Also eating yogurt can help maintain a healthy vagina!

[WORKED TEMPORARILY]  I've suffering to this BV since I gave birth. I had leakage before but the doctor said that is normal. But then it wasn't gone. And then it getting worse. I got this itchy feeling, burning, and bad odor. I went to my doctor and she gave antibiotics and a pill to get my embalance flora back to normal. But then, nothing's happen. I tried this hydrogen peroxide for a couple of days. YES! It worked for me. But when the time I didn't use it, here comes the BV again.

Hello everyone! I just want to first start off by saying never in my life have I created an account or post or anything to review anything but for this I just had to. I'm 21 years old and pretty sexually active and it started to scare the hell out of me when I noticed I was starting to become itchy down there and I was completely mortified when the smell began--it's awful! I immediately felt so ashamed and rushed to the health services of my campus to get and STD test and figured this is what I got for not having a boyfriend and sticking to one person. All of my test results (thank god) came back negative. What confused me though is that even my test for BV came back negative, which after doing a lot of research on the web, was exactly what I thought I had. The doctor was pretty much zero help and her advice was to try wearing loose clothing and switching all of my underwear to cotton…suuure. I came across the hydrogen peroxide wash and decided to give it a try and I'll admit I was a little nervous. I couldn't find anything to specifically tell me what to do or what it would be like so I'll post what I just did (literally twenty minutes ago…sorry if it's TMI! ):

I went to Safeway (closest supermarket with a pharmacy) and bought a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide (I don't know if there's actually any other kind, but just in case, it's the one in the brown bottle, brand does not matter) and one of those small plastic oral syringes (without the needle). Came home and filled up the whole syringe (I think it said 30cc or something like that) and laid a towel down on my bed. Then with my hips tilted upwards, I put just the tip of the syringe in my vagina and slowly pushed the liquid in. Two things…one: you don't feel it like you think you would…some women I read about reported a burning sensation, so if you know you're sensitive you might want to use 50% peroxide and 50% distilled/purified water (tap water may have bacteria in it). Two, and I didn't expect this so was a little surprised: it's going to bubble…a decent amount. It feels more than a little funny but not in a painful way, just a strange way. That part only lasts about a minute or two. Then you sit up and let whatever's still there come out. I can't tell you how pleased I am with this result! I guess it's been about 30-40 minutes now and everything is completely dry and no smell at all. For the record, I didn't shower yet because I'm about to go to the gym (which I guess will be the true test). Absolutely nothing though. I'm very happy with the results. The only thing I'm not sure about is how frequently you can use this wash, but based on what I read I think it said once a day for the next two or three days and then only as needed. I hope this helped anyone still dealing with this issue and good luck!!

[YEA]  The Hydrogen Peroxide Absolutely Works! I've have this probably for 3 years now. it started after having sex with my current boyfriend, who is not circumsized..... ugh. But desperate to find a cure I came across this remedy. But I will say the other thing to do along with this is to wash your vagina with baking soda. Any kind of soap or perfume will irritate your vagina and will add to the problem. Baking Soda is a life saver. I use it all over my body It even totally cleared up my minor acne on my face. I use it every day. It might seem harsh, but it is totally natural and wonderful for your skin and boda. Removes all odors. It wo't cure you but it will help prevent further reactions.

LADIES LISTEN! Home Remedies, douching, homeopaths, yogurt etc. DO NOT cure BV. It only helps relieve symptoms such as odor and itching. It is a bacteria and bacteria needs antibiotics. THE WAY TO CURE it is to get your vitamin D levels up. I've been suffering from BV for 6 years and it was tearing me up, killing my self esteem and my sex life. *This is a little explicit so brace yourselg* But every time my husband ejaculated in me I got an infection. EVERY TIME! The sex was painful and I just felt so dirty. I finally gave up on all the home remedies and thought I would be bound by this disease for the rest of my life but Fortunately my very awesome OB who was willing to help me instead of continuing to prescribe me antibiotics and after antibiotics said that the infection is most likely bc my vitamin D levels were very low and my immune system was weak b/c of that, which was allowing the infection to keep recurring. So she put me on (D3 1000 IU for 3 months). Well I have a testimony... It WORKED! It honestly and truly worked.
Here's what I did; I took 2 vitamins EVERYDAY (2000iu/day) for 3 months. I had sex with my husband but we used condoms so no semen would throw my ph balance off (he's very understanding of the situation :-) After 3 months my OB sent me to the lab to check my Vitamin D levels and they were a little higher than they were previously.
So *Explicit* My hubby and I had sex (uprotected) and he came in me twice in 1 day. The next day we had sex again he came in me once. Every other sexual encounter over the next 2 wks were the same. WELL I waited for the discharge... None! I waited for the odor... None! Its been over a month now and NO BV. I used to get BV between 4-7 days after he would ejaculate in me but my vagina has been great! Sex doesnt hurt AT ALL, he can go as deep as he want now w/o the pain. So Ladies... PLEASE TRY VITAMIN D for 3 months faithfully/or longer... DO NOT MISS DAYS. It is so worth the benefit. Btw I am not a OB, Doctor, Physician, and you should consult with yours. Thank you

Umm you live in Florida.. Why on earth are you supplementing for Vitamin D.. Go out in the sun - much healthier and a natural source of Vitamin D.

I was wondering if anyone ever got hives from using peroxide to treat/cure BV. I am on day 4 of using the diluted peroxide mix on a tampon and leaning it in for 30 minutes. Tuesday was my first time. I worked Wednesday 12.5 hrs and literally the moment I walked out of work I had hives ALL over my arms and face. Nothing lower then elbows. I took benadryl and went to bed. Hives went away. Thursday AM I inserted the peroxide tampon for 30 mins. Then hives again Thursday night, again benadrly and bed. Woke up with hives this morning (Friday). Any chance I am having a mild reaction to the peroxide?

Thanks for sharing your experience. I suffer from the same exact thing. Everytime my boyfriend comes in me I get an infection. I suffered from bv from the age of 18-20, then after I had my daughter it stopped for little over a year. Now that I think about it I was taking vitamins for a year after she was born because I breast feed. I stopped taking the vitamins and every since I've had a problem every time semen got inside. I will try this, the D3, and I pray it works. So tired of doctor visits and dealing with the symptoms of bv. I will give an update on my results. Thanks again.

To: Alyssa, (Boca Raton, FL), Thanks for that advice about vitamin D3 1000 mgs. I heard this on the Dr. Oz show about in-taking vitamin D3 to help cure BV. I started taking this and has been going strong for about a month now, crossing my fingers hoping this works for me. Thanks Again!

After reading the advice of using hydrogen peroxide as a douch for bv, I mistakenly grabbed the wrong bottle and mixed rubbing alcohol with the water. I hadn't realized my mistake until after I had inserted the top and if began to burn. I immediately jumped out of the shower and made the correct concoction of half hydrogen peroxide and water. After douching with that, I douched with plain bottled water and then water with a small amount of hydrogen peroxide with an attempt to rinse the rubbing alcohol out. What concerns should I have about the mistake I made? Thank you
