I have had bouts of BV for the past 6 months chronically. It was first noticed after my boyfriend and I first got together. About 3 wks after we started having sex, I got BV. I was treated with Clindesse the 1st time and it went away. It came back 2 wks later, with a vengeance. I went back to the Doc and she gave me Metrogel. She told me that if it came back she'd consider treating my partner. He is uncircumcised, and she informed me that he can harbor the bacteria easier in his foreskin and keep reinfecting me. Needless to say, he was treated and I still got BV again. So, I searched multiple sites and did a home treatment. I bought a regular box of Massengil douche (just for the bottle), bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide and a bottle of acidophilus pills. I did one douche of half peroxide and half water (bottled). Then I followed it with all warm water and 4 acidophilus pills emptied into the water. I did this for only 4 days in a row (just to make sure it was gone). I had no smell instantly after it... the itchiness/irritation was completely gone the next morning. It has been 3 months since I did this and I've had no other episodes! Not only am I happy, but so is my boyfriend, and certainly my sex life!!!

I must say after suffering from BV for so many years I was really tired and fed up. At this time I do not have any insurance and was suffering from BV for about two (2) days. I was trying to find a location that would sell me over the counter medications to cure BV was instead I came across this web and read all of the comments and home remedies. I must say I rushed to Walgreens where I purchased the Folic Acid and Probiotic Acidophillus, came home douched with half water and peroxide. Took the pills and I feel clean and fresh. No discharge so smell after a couple of hours. It has been 3 days now and still nothing. Thank you so much for this helpful information. May God Bless you all.

I started having a fishy odor and discharge a few months ago. I at first thought it was because my period was about to begin but when my period ended and the symptoms were still present I got worried. I went to the doc., got tested was told I have BV and she of course prescribed me an antibiotic..I started using home remedies a year ago after a nasty reaction to penicillin because of strep throat (which of course caused me to get a yeast infection..) I found this website before takin the drug she prescribed and based on what others wrote it seems that it may not have helped. I tried the Hydrogen peroxide and H2O, plus I bought folic acid pills and acidophilus. THe first time I used it the odor was gone. I used half Hydrogen peroxide and half H2O in a douche. I could see the discharge coming out. I didnt feel any pain thankfully but I sure felt alot cleaner. By the second night the discharge became thinner. I did the douche for three nights only and now a month after starting the hydrogen peroxide and H2O, plus the pills I feel, look, and smell normal again. I continue to take the pills daily. I made an appointment to make sure the BV is gone, but I feel so happy again... I am thankful I found this site.

All I can say is AMAZING!!! Seems like for the past 2 years, any little things has been throwing me Ph off; even different types of spermicide from condoms. I would be so embarrassed when I would have to go to the doctor smelling like any pond in a local park (smyl). Last night I came across this website and began to read the posts. Ironically, I started noticing the smell two days prior. After reading the posts I immediately rushed to Walgreens where I purchased 800 mcg of Folic Acid, probiotic Acidiphollus and 3% peroxide. Upon returning home I mixed half water and half peroxide in a summer's eve container and douched twice. I waited approximately one hour for results of any kind. All I can say is WOW!!!! The discharge was gone, and the smell was VERY minimal (if you didn't know what u were looking for u wouldn't think there was a smell at all). I then took 1 800mcg Folic Acid pill and 1 Acidiphollus pill. It is now 10:42 a.m. and the smell and discharge is GONE!!!! I just took another dose of the pills after finishing breakfast and now I'm posting my comments. I never really belived in reading blogs and such but I'm so happy I did. I want to thank everyone for sharing this cheap, EFFECTIVE, home remedy as it has helped me tremendously. I plan to take the dosage of pills for the next week to ensure that my vagina in normally balanced; then I may consider taking them twice a week. Thanks to everyone who started Earth CLinic and thanks again to everyone who shared the remedy. I encourage any female with this problem to please try the remedy. What do you have to lose. THIS REALLY WORKS!!! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL AND MAY GOD BLESS EACH OF YOU!!!

I came across this website after searching endlessly for a cure for Bacteria Vaginosis. The culture test came back with Heavy Gardenella, which is BV. I've have this horrible smell and itch for 2 years. My bf noticed, and obviously he complained.So the doctor prescribed me metrogel, which worked... but it came back after 4 weeks!! Dammit! Again, I went to see him and complained, and he prescribed it again. I didn't use it this time... I had to give Folic Acid and Acidophilus a shot! As soon as I read this, I went to CVS and bought Folic Acid 800mcg, Acidophilus probiotic and last by not least 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to wash down there with water. Just the first day I drank the pills and immediately the discharge was no longer watery, the smell went away, and the itch was gone!!!!!!! My GOD MY GOD why didn't the doctor tell me that all I needed was some good bacteria to fix my imbalance. This definitely restored my immune system and my LIFE BACK! I can't emphasize how joyful I feel, and I can finally say that my bf was incredibly happy and supportive. I now can celebrate christmas and new years with joy, instead of sadness. GOD BLESS YOU ALL FOR YOUR COMMENTS THAT HELPED ME RESTORE MY LIFE AND MY DEPRESSION IS GONE!

Thank you all for your valuable tips. I had been on four courses of antibiotics (metronadizole) in as many months. After finishing my last course on Monday morning by the evening the symptoms had re-occurred just as badly. I was at my wits end and finally decided to try to find a cure myself after being told by my doctor that it was caused by an imbalance in my system. I had also had a swab taken to confirm the presence of BV. I had tried the yogurt approach and although it worked for a few weeks my BV returned. After reading all your comments I went out on Tuesday morning and bought the hydrogen peroxide and made up the solution with water and used it to treat myself, as well as the folic acid. I had already been taking the Acidophilus capsules. However, all this combined seems to have made a remarkable difference. My symptoms have improved dramatically and I am going to continue with all of the above in the hope that it will finally rid me of it. This site was a godsend to me and I cant thank you enough. I wish you all well out there in our fight against this!

Alleyuia ! Thank God for this website. I too suffered from BV,10 years now. I visited with so many dr's and not one of them could give me a alternative. No explanations to why the imbalance, or how can I restore it.No, no,just a prescription knowing that you will be back. There was one dr that told me "it's impossible for you too have so many" how do you know that it's BV. Did he not hear me when I said that I have suffered with it for 10 yrs? You'd think I know, dah, anyhoo, after reading testimonials, I decided heck, what do I have to lose except for BV, so I tried the 1/2 & 1/2 water and peroxide& water,in the morning, plus folic acid & acidophillis (orally). My goodness what a difference, Thank You all for your suggestions, I pray that it will help others like myself... God Bless You Ladies...

I don't normally give comments back, but I am going to this time. I have had a yeast infection or BV for 4 days and thinking yeast first, I treated it with Monostat 1. It did not work, on the 4th day I was more miserable than I was on day one. I do not know how ladies put up with such a nasty condition for so long. Anyway, I dislike going to the doctors very much. I found this site and read your antidotes, then I found a medical site that backed the information about using a certain kind (that most people do not have) of H202 internally. I only have the 3% at home and that is what I used. The medical site does not recommend it for internal use. I do not own a baster or anything else like that. I used a tampon which I tried to soak with a solution of 50% bottled water and 50% H202, but I found it expanded too much in the applicator. In my frustration, I removed the tampon from the applicator and drenched it with straight H202 and used my fingers to push it up into my vaginal cavity. It was messy and a lot of liquid just came dripping back out. I also took paper towels and soaked them in staight H202 and methodically cleaned the entire external area from inside thigh to inside thigh and from start of pubic hair well past the anal opening. I let myself air dry then put on clean cotten underwear with a pad, and went to make a phone call, I talked for 67 minutes. During that time expanse there was a bit of a warm sensation that I felt and a bit of pain (like a cramping pain). After my call was over, I pulled the tampon out, then I literally dumped some more H202 over the entire external area and left myself air dry again. I woke this morning and have checked 3 times so far. No external cheesy stuff, no internal excessive white stuff, no musky smell, and I am pink again. I am going to the store to get some folic acid today also, but I did want to let you know of my success. P.S. I already eat Breyers probiotic yogurt daily regardless of state of health

FOLIC ACID H202 DOUCH WORKS WONDERS FOR BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS! GOD BLESS THIS SITE!!!!! I have referred to this site several times over the last few years and within the last YEAR I have had serious bouts with BV and frequent Candida/Yeast Infections. I tried EVERYTHING under the sun and didn't want to go back to the doctor AGAIN. Recently after having PROTECTED sex, I began having the usual itching, burning, thick discharge and because there was no odor, assumed it was yeast. I spent almost $60 in OTC meds in vain. I drinking ACV--this made it WORSE. I tried drinking Sea Salt and water to cleanse out my system--no cigar! I tried soaking in the ACV & Salt while douching--this solved my problem for only 1 day. I tried Cranberry concentrate and acidophilus for several days---again, worked temporarily and symptoms returned in full force within a few days. Finally, I realized that this may not be yeast after all and maybe I had another BV infection. So, naturally I logged on to this site and read up on the testimonials for BV cures. Douching with 1/2 cup 3% Hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 cup of water seemed to be a good idea, especially since it didn't require a visit to the grocery store and I'll be darned---my symptoms vanished into thin air (after the burning subsided after 30 seconds, my insides were raw at this point). I used the douche this morning and I cannot believe the results. I ran to the store and bought the Folic Acid and found it on sale for $1.85 (400mcg/350 tablets WOW!). I came home and took 3 Folic Acid tablets and 2 more acidophilus pills and I cannot believe how NORMAL I feel. I am FINALLY back to my normal self again. The itching and redness is gone!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR THIS WONDERFUL WEBSITE! YOU ARE TRULY A GODSEND!

I have been dealing with what I thought was a yeast infection for almost 9 months this year. Over the summer I went to my family doctor and dropped hundreds of dollars (i do not have health insurance) to get my pap and get std tested because I thought something was severly wrong. My doctor prescribed me Flagyl and told me I had BV. Instantly my symptoms stopped and for once I felt normal again! But this lasted for about a week or so until my symptoms returned. When i found this website I went to the 24 hr grocery store and bought folic acid (400mg), Stress Complex B vitamins and acidophilus pills. I also grabbed some Activia. When I got home I took 4 Folic acid pills, 2 acidophilus pills and one stress complex B pill. Then I soaked a tampon in hydrogen peroxide and inserted it for about 10 mins. When I removed it the odor and the discharge were gone. I don't know if it was the combination of both the vitamins and the peroxide, but it's the next day and I feel BETTER. Thank you SO much for this website, it saved me a ton of sleep, stress and money.

All I have to say is that I am so grateful for this website!!! Amazing. I would get a case of bacteria vaginosis and immediately run to my doctor. I was seeing her so often that she would just write me a prescribtion without even an examination. I looked up the bv cure and I read all of the cures. I went out and bought some acidophilus and some folic acid. After a day or two of no results, I tried the half and half of peroxide and water for about 4days but after the second day no smell or discharge. Amazing!!!! I keep checking myself to make sure it's not temporary and not one trace of it. I will continue to take the acidophilus and folic acid but the peroxide and water as a douche was the winner for me. My prayers have been answered because I prayed to find an alternative to conventional medicine for all of my ailments and I can say with confidence that I have thank you. Rachel from New York
