Got BV about a year and a half ago and freaked out. The most awful thing I've experienced in my entire 25 years of life. I smell bad all the time and even went to wearing tampons everyday to control the smell which of course was not the brightest idea. I took to the enternet to find a cure. I will admit, some of you ladies have done some extreme things and I have tried almost all of them. To the Garlic suppositories to eating a clove of garlic once a day to eating yogurt and shoving it up my vagina to using ACV to douche with and yet nothing was happening. The symptoms continued and I slowly gave up. Recently, I received a job offer to be a flight attendant and to survive probation, you have to stay healthy and a lot of them suggested drinking ACV with water daily. So before training I figured I would get a head start. 3 days into drinking this stuff every night before bed, the the symptoms have slowly disappeared the smell was completely gone after day 2 and I'm noticing less and less discharge. So far so good. Today made day 4 and my plan is to continue this to day 7 and drink this mixture every other day. I also plan to take a probiotic daily along with some other vitamins I'll need for this new lifestyle in the sky. :)
I have been suffering with BV for the past 6.5 years. I've tried so many home remedies and prescriptions but it would get better for a day or 2 and then come back.
I started a liquid fast yesterday to help detox my body due to some other health issues I'm having. The night before I started my fast I mixed 2 tablespoons of ACV, a little bit of ground cinnamon and about 3 tablespoons of distilled water into a shot glass and drank it. I use ACV with the mother in it. When I woke up yesterday morning I immediately drank another shot of the ACV mixture. Keep in mind I had no idea ACV would treat BV. I had zero odor when I woke up yesterday but I did have discharge still. I drank a total of 3 shots of that mixture yesterday and by the time I went to bed last night I had no odor and no discharge. I must say this is AMAZING. I only took this 3 times yesterday and it was all oral consumption. I didn't apply anything in or near my lady parts at all. I highly recommend drinking a "shot" of this miracle in a bottle 3 times a day. You will be so glad you did! I
I've had recurring bv for 8 months. Ive tried home remedies and meds several times but nothing helped.
2 weeks ago I started drinking apple cider vinegar 2 times a day in water. Within a week, the smell was gone. I didn't take it for 3 days and the smell came back.
I started it again, and the smell and itch went away after 2 days.
I highly recommend trying this!!
I have been an avid reader of EC for years, and have tried many of the cures suggested for various ailments. I have been battling Bacterial Vaginosis for two yrs., tried almost all natural remedies that I could find out about, some worked some didn't and the ones that did only lasted for a couple of days, then right back to the old drawing board...I was at my wits end with this smelly, frustrating and embarrassing ailment..so a few days ago before taking my shower I decided that I was going to use straight white vinegar inside the vagina, but not douching but soaking a washcloth in the vinegar and ringing the vinegar in the vagina from the back..it burned like heck, but I guess that is from the irritation that goes along with having BV.... it has been 5 days and NO scent nor discharge. I even had a couple of glasses of wine last night and today still no discharge nor smell at all! Normally if I have a drink it would have a bad effect on the BV and I would discharge more than normal, but not this time....White Vinegar has always been used for Centuries as cures, and as we women know, it is used in most store bought douches, but it doesn't always receive credit for ailments of the vagina. I just wanted to share my relief story, and hopefully it will help someone else out there...and if for some reason my bv comes back I will most definitely applying the same treatment as before....also up your water intake to at least 64oz per day and if over 140lbs drink enough ounces of water to equal half of your body weight, water is very important in this fight against BV. Make sure you are well hydrated everyday, I think that dehydration has alot to do with this and so many other ailments. I drink tons of water per day, I eat a piece of garlic everyday or night, I use an antibacterial soap to bathe, and I take probiotics also...but it wasn't until I inserted the white vinegar directly, that any great results are being achieved....I will post again in a couple of weeks with an update...God Bless.
Hello ladies, I have been suffering from BV for years off and on. I am now 35. I have tried everything but nothing has worked. My doctor even gave me on- going prescriptions of antibiotics to try and assist me with my constant complaints of odor and discharge. Some months I have had to wear a pad everyday to help keep myself dry. The winter months are not as terrible as the summer months. I have limited my activities, and started not to attend gatherings, or wear dresses, tights, or do anything that might expose my problem. In the summer months it is quite unbearable. I just found out about this site from my drs nurse. I'm so glad to know that I am not alone. After researching, I decided to use the Apple Cider Vinegar. I've been using it for three days now and my smell is completely gone. First day: mixed 2 tablespoons of ACV with a full glass of water and drank. That night mixed 10 ml of ACV with distilled water in a douche bottle and used. almost immediately I could tell a difference. The second day I did the same. Today, I drank the same mixture, but I increased my ACV in the douche mixture to 15mL and also soaked in a tub half way full of water and added two cups of ACV for 20 mins. ( just enough to cover my vaginal area) .The smell is completely gone. I plan on continuing this regimen for seven days. The 2nd week decreasing to four days and then every other day For the third week. The last week just once Or twice. I'll sit in the tub with the ACV twice a week from now on.
Please mix the ACV with water always And gradually increase in your douch mixture slowly. Because it can have a burning sensation.
In addition to doing this new regimen, I also take acidophilus 4 billion live cultures, zinc, folic, acid, and vit B12 every night. so far, I feel great and my confidence is coming back. Thanks so much for this site. I'll keep you posted.
Yes!! Thank you Lord! I added 3 cups of Pure Apple Cider Vinegar to my water and soaked for 20 minutes. It started working that same day. By the next day it was completely gone. No smell at all!! I hope this works for you!
