I had bacterial vaginitis and I was given something at the doctors but I decided to use 3% hydrogen paroxide douche with water (half of each), folic acid pills, and acidophilus pills (4 billion). Immediately the smell went away, and eventually there was no sign of the BV... Thanks guys...

I've suffered from BV for about three and a half months now I tried all the usual suspects, flagyl, metronidazole, in pill and gel, and nothing worked. I also around that time was diagnosed with low risk HPV. I had BV once before, a long time ago and it responded well to the antibiotic treatments, but this time, no go. I'm inclined to think that its because of my HPV, anybody else thought of this? If not, get checked for to the current home remedies I'm trying...I'm doing the full 3% hydro peroxide douches, which knocks out the odor really well, but I haven't been doing it long enough to see if its making any difference, I'll keep everyone posted. I'm also doing a round of supplements, including folic acid, acidophilus bifidus capsules, as well as echinacea (more for the HPV than anything else) and alternating days with my WOmen's 1 a day supplements. I'm also looking into Goldenseal, its a little pricey, but I'll try anything at this point. Doctors are stupid and make you feel stupid, so I'll do anything not to deal with that. Hope it all works, and hope I helped, I'll keep you all posted!!!!

Worked Temporarily

I wrote about a week or so ago about trying the folic acid and acidophilous and I did notice a change in the begining but since then it really hasn't helped. I still have the discharge and the itching. I even tried the peroxide douche.There isn't an odor and I am glad for that but I think that i am going to have to just go ahead and go to the doctor and after the antibiotics just use the folic acid and acidophilous as probiotics to replenish the good bacteria but right now I just need some relief.

Hello to all, I have been suffering from BV for 5 years now. Antibiotics will make it go away but i hate the way flagl tastes and metro is cool but both will cause me to have a yeast infection :( I started taking probiotics to not have a yeast infection and that worked while I was on the flagl.

The only thing that makes me get bv is having sex without a condom. I don't mind condoms but sometimes you get into a moment where you dont use them. For a while now I have stop tub baths and using perfumed soaps wich I am sure would cause BV too! What a hassle this thing is. I came across this site looking for a natural cure b/c I am soo sick of going to the doctors when I know for sure what the problem is. Today after reading everything on the site I am trying the folic acid (2/800 mg), Hydrogen Peroxide and h2o(50/50)and probiotics (14 billion). I pray that is works and if it does ill be sooooo happy!!!! Ill be back to let you guys know how it went.

Incidentally I have been trying to increase my alkiline with ACV/no baking soda and greens mix. Im am trying to cut back on sugar but its hard and I have learned that artificial sweeteners are acidic and bad for BV suferers trying to keep their PH right.

I tried the acidophilus and practically finished the entire 180 pills there was along with the folic acid and the peroxide, it did get better as far as the discharge having a little less odor. however, the itchiness is still mild and the discharge comes once in a while, but it is still there!!!! i already tried metrogel given by my doctor, it went away for a couple of months and it came back. my doctor prescribed me metrogel again, and i'm worried i'm just going to give the bv more strength. honestly, metrogel kills everything good and bad bacteria, but how on earth do you keep good bacteria when this acidophilus isn't enough?? i thought i was done with this problem, but ovbiously i am not. i'm still sad, though i try to forget about it. my boyfriend says that from a 1-10, he gives .me an 8 in improvement of odor. least my sex life is much better, but i still have that discomfort. does anyone have any other remedy... please!!! coming from a person who has struggled with this for about 3 years. i just wish this bv never existed. thanks for listening. tear.

I found out in December that I had Chlamydia and I was pissed (because I pretty much knew that my ex gave it to me!). My OB-Gyn gave me Azythromycin, which cleared up the infection. But I was still having alot of this odd-smelling white/yellow discharge (that smelled like fish after my husband and I would have sex). My doc said it was just my body changing (I had a miscarriage in March 2007). I didn't believe that so I kept pestering him about it and he took a swab and we found out I had BV. My doc prescribed Metrogel. That didn't work very well, it seemed to lessen the discharge but it would come back and there would still be a lot! And the smell? I'm clean person and I feel like I could smell it eveywhere I went. Plus, I know my hubby loves me and I hate for him to have to deal with this . . . it's not that bad, but it sure isn't a nice smell. And I would have to wear pads
EVERY DAY to try and mask the smell and because the discharge would soak my underwear(goopy, nasty!)
So I have been searching for natural cures because I don't want to wear my body out with antibiotics (I try to stay away from meds as much as possible).
Well, today is my first day trying the folic acid, acidophilis and 3% hydrogen . . . I'm going to keep up with this and pray that it works because I have seen the positive responses from others. I had all this goopy stuff come out after I did the 3% hydrogen douiche. Did anyone else have that?
'To add to this, my hubby is being to supportive and he's telling me it's going to work :)
I'm also taking cranberry juice and pills and lots of water because along with the BV and Chlamydia, I kept getting UTIs and the antibiotics were NOT working! The cranberry juice is helpiing! I am having no pain in my bladder! Yes!
Another thing . . . My doc told me that BV was harmless, right? YEAH, RIGHT! I did a lot of research that BV can cause complications with pregnancy and has occured alongside premature births and low-birthweight babies. I don't know what other problems BV could cause. Anyways, pray that this works for me . . . I want it to be gone because makes me self-conscious! I want to be clean! And . . .me and my hubby are hoping to conceive soon . . . keep in your prayers.
