So, I'm 22 and I've been having BV since I was 16 years old.

On and off since then. I use to get it about 2-3 times a month. Right after I take the antibiotics it will come back. Sometimes it would come right after my menstrual went off. I would get so frustrated. I currently am pregnant. About 2 weeks ago I had BV following up with the antibiotics. I discovered I was pregnant about 53 days ago along with noticing 5 ago I had BV. So I went to the Dr and she told me it was the high level of acidity was high because of the hormones I'm producing from pregnancy and it's unbalancing my pH level but The “infection” Would go away on its own in a few days. No antibiotics were given. So I looked and looked on this BV situation.

I've been soaking a plastic tampon in coconut oil (CO) for 3 days then pushing the tampon up for a few hours. I saw you can do it for 2 hours but I kept it up there as long as possible 3x a day. The smell this morning was almost gone. no more weird discharge. I am kinda skeptical on maybe this will give me yeast infection But I read CO can be used for yeast also. So let's cross fingers, (it is now 8:53 AM) that by tonight the smell is completely gone! Try it ladies! I have no complaints. No itching no discomfort or anything with the coconut oil. And I am really really sensitive. I say give it a try!

I tried the coconut oil suppository method for BV after reading about it here. I quickly warmed a cup of organic CO in a pan on the stove on low heat and transferred it to an ice cube tray and put it in the freezer. At night, I took one out and let it melt slightly and pushed it in and used a tampon applicator to push it up as high as I could. Did this for a week, but noticed results on Day 3. I will do this in the future as needed, but hopefully I won't need to again. I am taking probiotics and cutting back on sugar. Good luck to all.

So I would like to share how I cured my BV after 6 years of having it. After many doctors Apt's, many prescribed and non prescribed medication did not work I continued my search on the internet and YouTube for ways to cure chronic yes “Chronic" BV; I came across a post that said to use unrefined coconut oil as a suppository. How I did that was melt the coconut oil in the microwave or let it melt at room temperature afterwards I would pour a little into a small ice tray and let freeze for a few hours or overnight. The reason for freezing coconut oil is because it is very messy and melts extremely fast once touching a warm surface. At night time after work I would come home take the coconut oil ice tray out of the freezer and get in the shower, I would wash my body up as usual and then slide TWO small coconut cubes way into my vagina. The coconut oil melts fast so stay in the shower until you have rinsed off the coconut oil that was dripped out. You will notice either later on that night or the next day that the smell, itching or whatever problem that you may have is GONE. I'm not saying that this remedy works for everyone but it WORKS for myself ...coming from a person that has tried EVERYTHING for over 6 years to get rid of the smell. I hope you ladies try this it is very cheap and would rather do this treatment than buying expensive pills on cream.

A couple weeks ago I woke up in the middle of the night with vaginal itching. I wasn't sure if I had BV or a yeast infection but my vagina was not smelling the way it normally should either. I searched the web for a natural remedy that would work for both a yeast infection and bacterial vaginosis, since I wasn't sure which infection I had. I was not in the mood to go to the doctor because all they want to do is prescribe drugs, and I wanted to treat it naturally. I tried drinking apple cider vinegar for a few days and it didn't do much. So I decided to try coconut oil after seeing reviews that it works well for both BV and YI. I got one of those plastic siringe things from the drug store and filled it with coconut oil. I laid on my back in bed and inserted the plastic siringe as far up as I could and squirted the coconut oil inside me. I had some paper towels on the outside to prevent any mess. I layed there for 30 minutes. After that I would go to the bathroom to pee and have the coconut oil leak out into the toilet. (TIp: don't stand up without paper towels on your vagina or it will leak everywhere) I would then rub some CO on my inner and outter labia for good measure. Then I would put on a pantie liner and go to sleep. I did this for 5 nights and my infection is now gone. It's been a week since I did this and my symptoms have not returned and my vagina smells normal again!

I have tried antibiotics, tea tree oil, probiotics, vitamins coconut oil (refined), acv, yogurt and nothing helped my BV. I logged on this site and saw people talking about virgin coconut oil. This stuff has changed my life. I take about 1 1/2 teaspoons out, put it in a cup and microwave it for about 9 secs. I then use a medicine syringe to get it out and stick the syringe inside of me after my nightly shower, place a pad on and go to sleep. First time I tried this i woke up with no smell! I also take probiotics with prebiotics & cranberry and drink plenty of water.

I literally have just made this account just to tell you my cure :D BV sucks and it can drive you mad with the doctors pushing you out with antibiotics, making you feel nuts, and the smell and burn and itch and ugh, Ive had symptoms like constipation, creamy discharge, itchiness after sex, painful sex in general. JUST SUCKS. Just to tell you of myself a little I am 19 and have been with my boyfriend for 3 years, the amount of time I have had bv. I believe that I have had bv because me and my boyfriends juices or skins bacteria don't mix. I'm not sure but it has only been around when he has been around and he is extremely faithful. But I wasn't about to maintain a bv sex relationship, screw that nastiness I felt so bad for him but he was amazing an awesome. I am a healthy vegan/vegetarian/ raw foodie and eat like 9 meals a day consisting of fruits nuts and veggies fish all day everyday I'm very active. GLUTEN FREE I feel is important as well! But good gluten free stuff. If I ate unhealthy like breads or too much fruit (natural sugar) I noticed a hint of bv would flare so I would try to do mostly greens and nuts and limited fruits.

If you want to just cut straight to the remedy scroll to my last paragraph.

SO I have tried " everything under the sun" to get rid of this bv, the only thing I probably haven't tried is the gnarly stuff like boric acid and hibiclens. I try the most natural stuff like acv, hydrogen peroxide, acidophilous , yogurt up the vjay. But nothing worked. For two years it was a long hard struggle but the third year I went gluten free, drank lots of water and started to take more vitamins because I felt maybe I'm lacking some nutrients from the way I eat. I started to take 50 billion count probiotics. b complex vitamins and a D2 or 3 vitamin. I felt better but not cured. I still had the hint of bv but discharge was different for sure.

I then tried the apple cider vinegar douche but mixed with mostly coconut oil. I was better for 3 days! Cured but then it came back. I tried the Apple Cider Vinegar douche again with coco oil but more Apple Cider Vinegar this time. THE BV GOT WORSE.

SO then I started to get very frustrated and I thought about the coconut oil :D I was like lets just try the coconut oil ( Which is extra virgin and organic) . SO I laid on my back filled a small medicine syringe/dropper with coco oil and pushed it into my vagina and filled up the syringe again and repeated and continued to lay for 30 min. After 30 min I walked up to go pee and let out all the liquid and bv stuff and repeated this twice a day for 5 days and it was gone. Clear stretchy vaginal discharge with no smell. Gone after 3 years.

So the CURE :D

COCONUT OIL EXTRA VIRGIN

A LITTLE SYRINGE, MEDICINE THING (dosage per day is 2 syringes full for 30 min laying on your back) *ALSO DO NOT INSERT WITH FINGERS IT WONT GET TO THE PLACE WHERE IT NEEDS TO GO*

B COMPLEX VITAMINS, FOLIC ACID TWICE A DAY, D3 OR D2 and 50 BILLION COUNT PROBIOTICS.

LOTS OF WATER EVERYDAY 8 GLASSES AT THE LEAST.

When doing the coco oil cure, Fill the little syringe up twice and put into vagina while lying down, lay for 30 min then empty liquids in bathroom. Do this for 5 days twice a day( If you feel you are getting better by 3 or 4th day u can reduce it to doing once a day)

HOPE THIS HELPS

Everyone is different but I really have hope for this cure coconut oil is supposed to be very good for bv and vaginas in general.

Hi Ladies,

A bit of history into my condition: I've been having weird discharges only after drinking beer. Discharge is brownish and smells like vinegar. This started occurring after I had been vaccinated with gardasil and also having unprotected sex for the first time with my boyfriend. Been to the gyno. They say nothing is wrong with me and I have no infection, STD or otherwise. Everything is fine with me, no problems with my vagina, ovaries. However, still have weird discharge. Been on vaginal metronizole several times which got rid of the discharge. However, would come back if I started drinking beer.

Now you might think, why don't I give up beer? However, I really like organic beer, and I'm not an alcoholic, but beer is a nice way for me to release stress and plus it makes it happy.

Then I was reading earthclinic and someone recommended making coconut oil vaginal suppositories by shaping it into a bullet via clingfilm and then putting it into the freezer.

I did just once, and now the odd vinegar smelling discharge is gone and I do not smell like anything at all (I smell my panties everyday to check) I used to have a slightly stinky smell (my boyfriend told me I didn't smell like anything however) and my gyno told me I smelled normal, but now, I have ZERO smell after the coconut oil suppositories and ZERO discharge, even after drinking beer. For safety measures, I've been doing it for the last two days.

In addition, I had been suffering from low sex drive for the last two years. My vagina would literally clamp close if I thought about having sex with anyone and had problems with tampon insertion. However, now my sex drive has suddenly returned and I feel horny all the time LOL.

I still have no idea what I was suffering from, but thanks to the contributor who suggested coconut oil suppositories. Not only did my sex drive return, but I do not have that weird vinegar smelling discharge problem after drinking beer.

V.

I can completely understand your misery! Another user recommended ingesting virgin coconut oil, but if that sounds icky, try swishing it around in your mouth for 15-20 minutes every morning and then spitting it out. This is called oil pulling and I discovered quite by accident that it must balance either the good and bad bacteria or the pH of the vagina, because I'm cured after dealing with bv for four years! Before I discovered oil pulling, a few other things helped lessen my symptoms:

-avoiding sugar.

-using a mix of Apple cider vinegar and water as a douche and feminine wash.

-a homemade suppository of coconut oil mixed with the contents of an acidophilus capsule.

-daily probiotic supplements.

These things helped but didn't solve the problem. But since I began oil pulling I no longer douche, and I save tons of money because I no longer have to take tons of probiotics every day. What a huge relief! I hope this helps!

Here is an easy and fast remedy for bacterial vaginosis, which is relatively harmless but very smelly 'down there'. Simply put some virgin coconut oil in and around the vagina. The smell will be gone within hours but keep it going for a few days to make sure the infection is gone.
