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 had BV off and on for several years. I have been treated with pills and creams. I was just diagnosed early last week with BV. I was given metro-gel and I found no relief. So I started my research and ended here. I have begun the hydrogen peroxide/water douch and the acidophlis pills.

I have a question... After douching I see this white cottage cheesy discharge. Is this from the douching and when does this go away? How many days am I to douche using this? I still feel slightly raw and somewhat irritated. How long will this process work. Thanks for your response as it is greatly appreciated.

Just received a call back from the doctor on the DNA test they took from the culture. It says all is completely "normal". Why am I so irritated and is this discharge from the metro gel stuff I used for 5 days. I was also wondering if I am having these symptoms because I am in my mid 50's and no longer have a period. Please, help me figure this out!! Thanks to all in advance who responds.

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
