Hydrogen Peroxide Douche cured my Bacterial Vaginosis!
Sunday, I started having this fishy odor for the first time in my entire life. I am in my mid-20s. Before then, I had never douched nor had any feminine problems down there. I'm thinking this odor came from stress, eating poorly that week, and drinking too much alcohol that weekend, plus I tried a hard liquor that I've never had before. I was thinking about setting up an appointment with a gynocologist but decided to do some online research after "self-diagnosing" myself with BV. I came across this site and decided to give it a try.
So yesterday (Wednesday), for the first time in my life, I douched. My mother had this a summer's eve douche in the bathroom. I took one of those unused bottles, unwraped it, emptied out the solution that was already in it, then rinsed it out, then filled the douche bottle 1/2 with Hydrogen Peroxide and 1/2 with spring water, shook it up, got in the shower, inserted it and squeezed the solution up in there, held the solution inside for 2-3 minutes, then released it out in the shower. Then I did a douche rinse with water. Today (Thursday), I have no odor and no discharge AT ALL!!! I never thought I would be sharing something like this! Hope this encourages someone that is suffering from this odor for a short period of time.
I also did a mouthwash and gargle with Hydrogen peroxide and had fresher breath too!
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.

I have suffered from BV forever! Have sex, have period, boom, have BV. I have had to wear pantyliners for YEARS! Everything was tried by the Doc...forget them! I used 3% Hydrogen peroxide, do not dilute. It is already diluted to 3% with buffered water. I douched once and the odor decreased, went to dinner for 2 hrs, then douched before bed with same full strength solution. I had a lil itch and tingle that was not originally there for about 15 mins, then gone. Everything gone. No odor, no discharge, no itch, no redness, no pantyliner, NO EMBARRASSMENT!!! I plan to continue the hydrogen peroxide for 7 days, then start life again. I am soooo very happy I found this site and thank all the women for their testimonies. I am taking a 800 mcg folic acid pill and probiotic daily already for intestinal issues and will continue. But the addition of the 3% Hydrogen Peroxide has been the glory help I have been looking for! I just texted my main squeeze who has had to be on the side lines in bed due to this BV and requested we test the results soon with some great sex(this is what usually induces an attack). I will keep you posted of the future results for I know readers need to know if there is a long-term help, not just a quick partial fix. Good luck to all!
OK ladies, I have read countless fourums on BV trying to find home reamedies. I started having that dreadful fishy odor with LOTS of white cheesey gunk....... the odor only got worse, to the point to where it smelled like reeking dead fish. I never have an unuasual odor, most of the time I am odorless, with occaisonal sweet or normal odor from excercise or arrousal. I shower twice a day, I use a mild soap like baby wash or dove on my vuvla and labia, then just squirt the shower water up as a water douche. This method works great for me and I never had any problems. Anyway, I started having the BV symptoms last Saturday. I tried the salt sitz bath, the vinegar douche, and tea tree oil, although they cut the odor down, it was still there. I also tried the plain yogurt on a tampon overnight, it did cut the odor down but not fully. My instinct was to use peroxide, and so I researched that and found a clinical study where 80% or so of the patients were cured with peroxide. This is what I did: Yesterday, I soaked a tampon in 3% hydrogen peroxide, full stregnth. It made the tampon swell, and it was kinda hard but I had to just shove it up there. I left it in about 30 minutes. Then I did the finger smell test. Wow!!! Only a faint smell of fish. Then, I used a douche of 1/4 perioxide, and 3/4 water. I was always told to never douche with anything but plain water .....I had several GYNS and midwifes say if I feel the need to douche, plain water is always fine, which is why I just use the shower head. Then, I filled a syringe without the needle with straight peroxide, and flushed it up there, twice. The past two nights I've used the yougurt on a tampon, it seems to help also. As of today, there is NO fishy odor, no odor at all! I will use the perioxide tampon method (because douching scares me) for today and tommorow, then maybe once a week for a month to make sure this is really gone. I'll also go ahead and use the yogurt overnight for at least tonight.....it did seem to help. So thats it ladies!! This is how it worked for me ........the yogurt drastically reduced odor over night, and the perioxide cut it out instantly. Good luck , I'll post more if this comes back. I heard alot of good things about ____, and its just so expensive, I hope I don't have to use it. But I'll say this, I will keep some on hand for after intimate moments or cycles so that the PH NEVER gets so thrown off again!!! What a horrendous, embarrasing infection!!!! (I'm pretty sure mine came from semen; after my boyfriend ejaculated inside me for the first time, I was having symptoms that night-if that ever happens again-afterwards I guess it will be time to "refresh".)

So I tried the inserting of the acidophilus, yea that didn't Wk, so I tried the 1/2 peroxide 1/2 water and well can we get angels to sing!!!! It worked I took a measuring cup and measured 2/3 cup of peroxide and 2/3 cup of water (preferably warm) and douche away!!!! Thank u all for ur remedies and thank u so much for creatin this website!!!!! Oh I do take one acidophilus pill every morning.
Warning: I decided to try the H2O2 Acidophilus combo for BV.
Most people mentioned using a solution from the 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, but I thought I had also read about people injecting undiluted 3% H202 directy inside the canal of the vagina. I soaked a tampon in neat 3% HP and left it in for a good 4 hours. Bad mistake, I feel my insides burning and really sore. I think I was just eager to get it over with and forgot how sensitive those parts can be. The smell is gone, but I will have to wait a few days for it to heal before I try again. So please make sure you only soak the tampon in a diluted solution.

Omg. . . I thought I was the only one suffering. . I've been dealing with this since I was 20 off an on. . If it wasn't a yeast infection it was bv. . . The doctors said it was normal and I would just have to keep taking meds. . .after college I stopped with med an tried to change my diet. .I can't believe it took me this long to find this site. . . .always though bv had to be cured with meds. . . I was sooooooo anxious to start. . .I loaded up on my prenatal vitamins and did a peroxide and water douche . . .then I dipped a tampon in peroxide and inserted it for two hours. . . I woke up the next day. . No odor or discharge. . . I'm still taking the prenatal pills and eating plain yogurt ( a lil honey in it helps). . I will continue this for a while. . I'm soooooo thankful for this site and ur suggestions. . . I can enjoy my sex life. . Not worry about the smell or others possibly smelling me. . . Ladies we are free!!!

After searching the web to find no answers... I finally thank you god found real ways to fix this prob! So I was reading over this sight and got to page 6 and realized WOW I have to try the 3%... it was after 12 a.m. And I was tired but I was eager to have this issue gone! I did the 1/2 water 1/2 3% and the next day.... it was gone!! but I did it again tonight (day 2 ) and it didn't seem to do the trick... do I need to do it more maybe twice a day? My husband came home from being out of town so we had sex... should I hold off on sex for a few days? Help!!!
I have used the peroxide and water douche for bv which I have suffered with for ten years or more. I started using it about 2 weeks ago. I douched with 3/4 h202 and 1/4 h20 for 4 nights and h202 only for 3 nights. To date, the discharge is so much less than before and the foul odor is gone. Even after sex with there is no fishy odor. I do plan to continue this method at least once a month and sometimes douche after sex. So happy that I came across this site.
Hi all you with various forms of BV. Since I became allergic to antibiotics and turned my diet upside down and eat only real foods, I treat all my illnesses completely naturally.
For yeast/candida I take acidophilus orally and insert one capsule vaginally in the evening, before bed. If it's really bad I insert 2 capsules per day, am and pm.WORKS
But for BV such as gardanella which is an anaerobic bacteria, in other words it proliferates in places where there is no oxygen I use hydrogen peroxide. I use a 10ml syringe ( without the needle obviously) And draw up clean water (distilled or ozonated) and 1 capfull 3% hydrogen peroxide. Insert it vaginally push the plunger and "hold" the liquid in for a few mins ( lying down helps) and then push it out, may gurgle or froth a bit. Do this twice a day until symptoms seen to have gone and then 1 a day or 1 every other day for maintenance.WORKS WONDERS.
It is important to keep our vagina acidic, I wonder if a solution of water and ACV would help?
Hi, I too had BV and could not get rid of it...until I did some research and found this site, boy was I happy to know I wasn't the only one in the world with this awful problem. After reading so many of the entries, I tried it that same night!! I remember I had a bran new bottle of Hygrogen peroxide in my cabinet,So I went and got a syringe ( the kind you would use to put medicine into; for a yeast infection) Its the only thing I had on hand and I was desperate. So I did the half and half (water with peroxide) I use the needleless syringe to insert it up my vajayjay, and I repeated it about 3 times, then I used the pure peroxide (3%) and washed in the outside. That was about 3 weeks ago and the smell was gone instantly!!! and has not come back as of yet. I'm soo happy and women do not hesitate on trying it cause it does work!!!! You will feel fresh fully clean!!!! You have nothing to lose but the SMELL!!! : )
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.

A Note about H2O2 and BV: Just to clarify...I noticed several ladies worried about douching with Hydrogen Peroxide and calling it "bleach". This is incorrect! Yes, peroxide can have a bleaching (i.e. removing color) effect but it is NOT the same as the agent used on hair for color stripping. IN fact, your vagina makes a version of hydrogen peroxide. If you read the bottle you should see it is used as a gargle...if you can put it in your mouth rest assured you can put it in your hoo-hoo! Hydrogen Peroxide helps to balance the vaginal PH, and imbalance is what causes yeast and BV infections. If the PH swings too far one way the you get a yeast infection if it goes the other way then it is BV.
??? Is the peroxide and water douche a mask or does it work every time? Any have the smell come back or see that it only works temporarily? I hope someone who's been doing this long term can give us an update!!! I tried the douche it does get rid of it but month or 2 motnhs later, it will come back right after my period...followed by a yeast infection :o( Im so frustrated!
