Has anyone had any problems doing this peroxide/water treatment? I did the 50/50 treatment and got pelvic and back pain. I am going in to see my doc. to see if I've hurt myself. Is this safe to do? Thanks.

Did you ever find out why you started bleeding, because I used the 50-50 hydrogen peroxide and water as well on the tampon and after that I started bleeding!?

I too started using the H2O2 with a tampon and started having extreme itching on the outside of my vagina. Is this normal? I am going to continue the treatment because I am tired of having BV with the hopes that the itching goes away. If anyone has solutions that would be great.

I just tried the tampon deal soaked in hydrogen peroxide 3%. I actually had to do it two times the first time I left the tampon in the plastick insert that you normally use to put the tampon in. Then I didn't feel any "bubbles" how everyone said so I thought it wasn't working or I didn't have BV. Then I tried again I soaked just the tampon in the hydrogen peroxide and then pushed it up there. I left it in for about 15 mins or so and I definately felt the bubbles this time. However when I took the tampon out it had blood on it and I am not on my period. I think that I may have a cyst again and maybe the hydrogen peroxide helped to open up the gland. (I get them in the glands that normally keep us wet or moist) So anyway I am hoping that maybe this could be the cure to that too. Otherwise I have no idea why their was blood on the bottom of the tampon. By the way I do not currently have any funky smell.

Thank you for the assistance.

I started douching 2 days ago with hydrogen peroxide 1/5 and distilled water 1/5 for vaginal infection. afterwards i started feeling itchy in my vaginal area. has anyone experienced this before? I used a small travel douche as an applicator so i don't know if this was one of the cause.

Warning about hydrogen peroxide douche. I was douching with one third peroxide, 2 thirds water almost every day after sex to stop the bv and it gave me a really bad UTI. I spent thousands at the urologist trying to figure out why i was peeing blood. After having a scope of my bladder an infection was found and I was on antibiotics for 3 months. After that I made my boyfriend wear a condom which stopped the bv. I noticed his saliva also caused it. I think some people just have the creepy crud and my body couldn't handle it.

Hi, I am ACH, I think I have BV from the sounds of it...YEP! I have been fighting this for a month now and I have been on flagyl, metro gel, clindesse, bactrim, diflucan, all of it. I read your comments and tried the hydrogen peroxide douche for about 3 days and I am as red as a lobster on the external part of my that normal? Should I continue the hydrogen peroxide or stop, I read where a lady used iodine and water douche and I am just about ready to give up. The odor is still there but the discharge is gone, I don't know if it is because I am on so many meds right now that my body doesn't know if its healed or to produce more yeast...PLEASE HELP! Got any suggestions??
