I've had chronic and sometimes intense bv for a few years. Looking over different remedies here, I thought cold water cleansing sounded easy enough. Although it's not completely eliminated, this has had longer lasting results than any of the many things I've tried. No soap, just a quick and thorough rinse with a detachable shower head. Start warm to adjust and then gradually turn the water as cold as you can stand it. It gets tolerable fairly quick. I do it at night before bed usually and then sleep nude without underwear.
I have no idea why switching from warm to cold water has helped but results don't lie. Maybe warm and cold water has different pH? I know warmer water has more sediment in it so maybe cold is just..cleaner? Idk but it helps a lot and is really easy and free!
It's a near miracle, but cold showers have cured what nothing else did for me for over two years. My bacterial vaginosis is gone! Incredible.
I start hot and turn the water cold gradually. The final 30 seconds is stingingly cold. Its addictive, energizing and for a warm water wimp like me, a big departure in habit. The fact I have stuck with the program, is testament to the wonderful and unexpected results I have obtained from this.
