I started to get BV years ago, but sporadically, usually when I had a new partner. I remember finding VH essentials BV treatment and it totally worked, I loved it! Then I just didn't get BV for awhile, well now Im with someone new, who is uncircumsized...never had that before. I started out with UTI's that wouldn't go away then yeast infections, then several months after I started getting BV again. I tried the VH essentials and sometimes the metrogel, the VH essentials was always gentler on my body....well to my dismay they stopped making it. I went to specialists and I went to a homeopathic doctor who gave me other suppositories, I got a horrible yeast infection from those and then I get results back that I still had BV....enough already, my boyfriend felt like it was him, who knows, I feel like the medical community has no clue and I don't know why they aren't helping us, I get so many different answers from specialists, my gyno, the internet, the homeopathic doctor, we just decided to stop having sex for a couple months. When we returned to sex, we made sure he washed himself and we used condoms, but then surely we got lazy in the heat of the moment and didn't follow our rules, well guess what, it just came back. I was in so much pain from a yeast infection, went to my gyno, he saw yeast, and sent out for labs, so here I am waiting on the results and I feel the odor and discharge getting worse. Vh essentials stopped making their BV treatment so I was left with this option over the weekend til I get the results, I have never douched before, it was a little weird going in and I don't know if I did it right. I took the advice of another poster and did 50/50 HP, water and I put a tad raw apple cider vinegar. Instead of doing it twice a day, because I'm sensitive girl, I'm going to do once a day until I get the results on Monday. Any advice on how to correctly douche? I only felt a little run out, it felt very very weird and some air got up there, and I ended up not using the whole bag, it was a little burny after I was done, but after 10 minutes it is subsiding. I think I will just do the 50/50 tomorrow and no vinegar from here out. Lastly, I did go on a very low carb diet too when BV and yeast would just not go away. I started to get lazy on that about month ago and perhaps think that is another reason why it came back. Back to eating lots of protein, veggies, cheese and dairy, nuts and is so boring and I love bread :( lol

Just updating my results, so after the first douche last night, it was feeling great, no smell or nothing, no discharge, then I woke this morning and it was feeling dry down there, I did the 50/50, no straight up HP. I cleaned my area and just kept on with my day, I decided to try the tampon thing instead, I only did it for like 20 minutes, and this was early in the day. Well now it is almost dinner time and it was starting to smell down their again. So I just did another douche. I said I was only going to do one douche a day since I know my body and Im always sensitive to everything. I hope this helps again, I just hope I don't end up with a yeast infection. I have a YI pill on hand and I doubled my supplement of a probiotic today. Ive been on the probiotic for about 2 weeks now, just one pill a day, 30 billion live, and I've been on folic acid for about 2 or 3 months now. Arggghhh, I just want this to be gone, maybe Im just not being patient enough. Question though, those that did the douche for several days, did you do the douche, feel great for the day and then the next day feel that was still a little there?

The #1 biggie to keep in mind when you are dealing with an uncut lad, is that you treat him as well as yourself. Even if the sex is protected, he can very easily contract the yeast and the BV from you, and harbor it in the wee folds he has. When he touches himself and you (which will happen, even with condoms) he will reintroduce the yeast and bacteria back into your vagina.

I have some experience with uncut lads, and it's a beast to keep them clean and hence yourself. The main thing is, unless he wants to get cut, you have to treat his willy the same way you treat yourself. If you're using the home remedy on yourself, you must use it on him as well. Think of it like a tiny vagina on top of his willy, only when he washes normally, make sure he gets in those folds ALL the way. Cotton swabs may be of use if there are places he can't reach or treat. It's a bit like owning a western shar pei and why most US folks get clipped when they're bairns.

That alone should help a wee bit.

I think they still make the VH Essentials treatment but they call it Vaginal Odor treatment or something. You can find the labels both online and I compared them and they have the same ingredients. My guess is someone told them they couldn't claim to treat BV for some reason.

They still make vh essentials. I buy them as needed. CVS will usually always have them everywhere else like a needle in a haystack.

Just wanted to recommend what I tried for BV.. Had a case of BV, and I knew what it was as I have had it before.. Didn't want to get antibiotics, because that would probably just give me thrush, so I looked at earth clinic.

I bought some 3% H2O2 and a syringe, filled the syringe with 1ml H2O2 and the rest water, and inserted it into my vagina while I showered. Immediately, this took the smell away, but temporarily. After showering, I also warmed up some organic coconut oil, emptied a capsule of prebiotic and added a powdered probiotic, a few drops of tea tree oil and soaked the tampon in this mix.

I inserted the tampon and left it for about an hour, and it seems to be helping - the smell has definitely subsided. I have continued this for 2 days so far, it seems as though it is slowly but surely fixing the issue!

I have also been taking 2 probiotic capsules and a spoon of probiotic in my cereal, and avoiding sugar where possible.

I will reply to this post with my feedback after a few days to let you know whether it worked or not!

It seemed like I was more susceptible to getting infection than the normal person. a couple of days after having sex (unprotected) I noticed a clumpy white discharge so I though it was a YI. I went out and bought the CVS version of monistat 7. I began to use it and my discharge began to change colors. At first it was white, then changed to a pinkish one (by this point I stopped using monistat) then it changed to like an organgish color then it was yellow followed by brown. The brown discharge was just old blood because I take BC. okay so what I did was take an EMPTY douche applicator and mixed it with half peroxide and half boiled water. I let this solution cool down after shaking it up. Immediately after this I noticed a change and that the discharge had calmed down. A couple hours later I douched again (make sure you always rinse out and clean the nozzle after each use) and after this time I no longer had ANY discharge or smell. So the next day (sunday) I douched once when I woke up and once before I went to bed. still absolutely no discharge. The next day I went to my healthcare provider and I told her everything I had done. She then took a swab of the inside of my vagina and told me I was as clean as a whistle. I was shocked to know that she said that by doing this I had actually cured the BV. She did say one time was enough because I didn't want to be too rough on my vagina and that doctors don't recommend douching because it can sometimes push bacteria further up. Well from now on a couple hours after sex I will douche with peroxide and water and I will also do this after my period is over. Also eating yogurt can help maintain a healthy vagina!

Worked Temporarily

I've suffering to this BV since I gave birth. I had leakage before but the doctor said that is normal. But then it wasn't gone. And then it getting worse. I got this itchy feeling, burning, and bad odor. I went to my doctor and she gave antibiotics and a pill to get my embalance flora back to normal. But then, nothing's happen. I tried this hydrogen peroxide for a couple of days. YES! It worked for me. But when the time I didn't use it, here comes the BV again. I do douche the HP today and it works but I want to know here if there is other thing to do or to take other than using hydrogen peroxide. Thank You...

Hi Aye, I'm Juris from Philippines as well, how's your BV now? Is it completely gone? Right now I'm also suffering with BV, it's driving me crazy! It's recurrent, how do you use hydrogen peroxide (like the amount of hydrogen and how much the amount of water to dilute) and aside from that did you discover other things to cure your BV? like taking probiotics or vitamins? I hope for your response. Thank you.

Posted by Relieved And Hopeful (Tempe, Arizona) on 01/21/2014

Hello everyone! I just want to first start off by saying never in my life have I created an account or post or anything to review anything but for this I just had to. I'm 21 years old and pretty sexually active and it started to scare the hell out of me when I noticed I was starting to become itchy down there and I was completely mortified when the smell began--it's awful! I immediately felt so ashamed and rushed to the health services of my campus to get and STD test and figured this is what I got for not having a boyfriend and sticking to one person. All of my test results (thank god) came back negative. What confused me though is that even my test for BV came back negative, which after doing a lot of research on the web, was exactly what I thought I had. The doctor was pretty much zero help and her advice was to try wearing loose clothing and switching all of my underwear to cotton…suuure. I came across the hydrogen peroxide wash and decided to give it a try and I'll admit I was a little nervous. I couldn't find anything to specifically tell me what to do or what it would be like so I'll post what I just did (literally twenty minutes ago…sorry if it's TMI! ):

I went to Safeway (closest supermarket with a pharmacy) and bought a bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide (I don't know if there's actually any other kind, but just in case, it's the one in the brown bottle, brand does not matter) and one of those small plastic oral syringes (without the needle). Came home and filled up the whole syringe (I think it said 30cc or something like that) and laid a towel down on my bed. Then with my hips tilted upwards, I put just the tip of the syringe in my vagina and slowly pushed the liquid in. Two things…one: you don't feel it like you think you would…some women I read about reported a burning sensation, so if you know you're sensitive you might want to use 50% peroxide and 50% distilled/purified water (tap water may have bacteria in it). Two, and I didn't expect this so was a little surprised: it's going to bubble…a decent amount. It feels more than a little funny but not in a painful way, just a strange way. That part only lasts about a minute or two. Then you sit up and let whatever's still there come out. I can't tell you how pleased I am with this result! I guess it's been about 30-40 minutes now and everything is completely dry and no smell at all. For the record, I didn't shower yet because I'm about to go to the gym (which I guess will be the true test). Absolutely nothing though. I'm very happy with the results. The only thing I'm not sure about is how frequently you can use this wash, but based on what I read I think it said once a day for the next two or three days and then only as needed. I hope this helped anyone still dealing with this issue and good luck!!

Don't know how this is going to work. But at this point I'm desperate for anything. Had this going on for 13 yrs and like all the other comments. I've been to the doctor and they have prescribe me with pills/gels and even tried some pills pid (pelvic inflammatory disease) but once again it came back. I am so tired of being paranoid about walking past someone or going to gym. But will let viewers know what the turn be..Wish me luck

The H.P. can be irritating so be careful to not start w/ too much. For this reason many health professionals recommend Povidone Iodine which is quite effective.

I start treatment fo BV with H202 douche once (somedays twice), acidophilus and folic acid daily, after the 2nd day I really see a difference and notice a lot of improvement, so I'm super happy about it, but this is something I been wondering if I can have some help...

I read before here about H202, acidophilus and folic acid as a treatment for BV, I just have some concerns and help please...After 7-10 of H202 douche and both pills daily, how often then I'll need to douche just to prevent and be clean fresh and the pills I continue taking no matter all is gone...Thanks

The Hydrogen Peroxide Absolutely Works! I've have this probably for 3 years now. it started after having sex with my current boyfriend, who is not circumsized..... ugh. But desperate to find a cure I came across this remedy. But I will say the other thing to do along with this is to wash your vagina with baking soda. Any kind of soap or perfume will irritate your vagina and will add to the problem. Baking Soda is a life saver. I use it all over my body It even totally cleared up my minor acne on my face. I use it every day. It might seem harsh, but it is totally natural and wonderful for your skin and boda. Removes all odors. It wo't cure you but it will help prevent further reactions.

Curious - with the baking soda what kind of mixture did you use for your face?

I've struggled with yeast all my life & BV for about 4 years. Now it has been 2 years since I did my last hyrdrogen peroxide and distilled water douche. NO BV, NO YEAST. I consulted my doctor - he gave me metrogel. No success. I tried yogurt tampons, apple cider vinegar, and borax but nothing solved the problem permanently. God Bless Earth Clinic - I don't know WHY I haven't written this sooner.


Distilled** water
Hyrdogen Peroxide 3%
Oral syringe, irrigator, or douche system.
**DISTILLED WATER IS ESSENTIAL. Distilled water has no bacteria or extra minerals in it. Tap water isn't filtered enough. Distilled water is the only safe drinking water for patients with liver disease who can't process extra minerals, etc. It's much safer for your vagina than tap water.

Mix equal parts peroxide with distilled water.
Douche by method of choice (in the shower - for any first timers out there).

If using an oral syringe, take care not to put too far into the vagina. You are simply flushing out your system. I only inserted it 2 inches & avoided my cervix. Go slow! Be gentle! Too much pressure from any douche can push the bacteria up to the cervix. You don't want that...

You may notice a tingling or bubbling sensation. Try to let it work as long as you can! If it is too bothersome, flush with more distilled water gently. (I danced around in the bathroom to cope).

Only use when you notice you need it. I think this is essential not to shock the system and to give the body a chance to fight back on its own (as we would prefer it to do anyway).

A candida diet might be helpful during this process, but I did not follow one.

It took approximately 2-3 months for it to clear. One major benefit is that the odor is gone immediately w/this treatment.

So that's it! 2 years BV & Yeast free w/o further treatment. I really hope this works for others out there!! Good luck!!

Better But With Side Effects

Hi ladies and thank you. I've been dealing with Bacterial vaginosis off and on for 3 years now. I take healthy doses of probiotics and acidophilus every day cause I have UC. I started the peroxide douche last week and it's been a miracle worker, but today when I did it I had a rather large clear mucusy clot come out. (No odor). Has anyone ever experience this? And should I be worried? Thanks in advance.

Hi Bonnie, how's yuo BV now? How about the last one you've mentioned after you've douched with HP, you said "large clear mucusy clot come out", how is it now? Sorry just asked 'cause it'll be the first time I'm going to douche especially with HP (I DIDN'T DOUCHE AT ALL DOWN THERE EVER SINCE) out of desperation, I'm going to try douching, 'cause I'm suffering right now with BV, and it's driving me NUTS!

I'm married, and I don't want my sex life with my husband be ruined just because of this BV! I don't want it to be a hindrance especially were trying to have a baby

Hi! How big was the clot? I have a little clot coming out every month during my vertile period, which is completely healthy & normal. If it is about half a centimeter (sorry I'm from Europe, don't know your sizes), and if you are right in the middle of your last period and the one coming up, then it might just be your ovulation.

LADIES LISTEN! Home Remedies, douching, homeopaths, yogurt etc. DO NOT cure BV. It only helps relieve symptoms such as odor and itching. It is a bacteria and bacteria needs antibiotics. THE WAY TO CURE it is to get your vitamin D levels up. I've been suffering from BV for 6 years and it was tearing me up, killing my self esteem and my sex life. *This is a little explicit so brace yourselg* But every time my husband ejaculated in me I got an infection. EVERY TIME! The sex was painful and I just felt so dirty. I finally gave up on all the home remedies and thought I would be bound by this disease for the rest of my life but Fortunately my very awesome OB who was willing to help me instead of continuing to prescribe me antibiotics and after antibiotics said that the infection is most likely bc my vitamin D levels were very low and my immune system was weak b/c of that, which was allowing the infection to keep recurring. So she put me on (D3 1000 IU for 3 months). Well I have a testimony... It WORKED! It honestly and truly worked.
Here's what I did; I took 2 vitamins EVERYDAY (2000iu/day) for 3 months. I had sex with my husband but we used condoms so no semen would throw my ph balance off (he's very understanding of the situation :-) After 3 months my OB sent me to the lab to check my Vitamin D levels and they were a little higher than they were previously.
So *Explicit* My hubby and I had sex (uprotected) and he came in me twice in 1 day. The next day we had sex again he came in me once. Every other sexual encounter over the next 2 wks were the same. WELL I waited for the discharge... None! I waited for the odor... None! Its been over a month now and NO BV. I used to get BV between 4-7 days after he would ejaculate in me but my vagina has been great! Sex doesnt hurt AT ALL, he can go as deep as he want now w/o the pain. So Ladies... PLEASE TRY VITAMIN D for 3 months faithfully/or longer... DO NOT MISS DAYS. It is so worth the benefit. Btw I am not a OB, Doctor, Physician, and you should consult with yours. Thank you

I was wondering if anyone ever got hives from using peroxide to treat/cure BV. I am on day 4 of using the diluted peroxide mix on a tampon and leaning it in for 30 minutes. Tuesday was my first time. I worked Wednesday 12.5 hrs and literally the moment I walked out of work I had hives ALL over my arms and face. Nothing lower then elbows. I took benadryl and went to bed. Hives went away. Thursday AM I inserted the peroxide tampon for 30 mins. Then hives again Thursday night, again benadrly and bed. Woke up with hives this morning (Friday). Any chance I am having a mild reaction to the peroxide?

After reading the advice of using hydrogen peroxide as a douch for bv, I mistakenly grabbed the wrong bottle and mixed rubbing alcohol with the water. I hadn't realized my mistake until after I had inserted the top and if began to burn. I immediately jumped out of the shower and made the correct concoction of half hydrogen peroxide and water. After douching with that, I douched with plain bottled water and then water with a small amount of hydrogen peroxide with an attempt to rinse the rubbing alcohol out. What concerns should I have about the mistake I made? Thank you

So excited to share this with you. I have struggled with BV for around 8 years. I've been to doctor and specialists. The only thing they have ever prescribed were antibiotics, metranidizole (gel and pills), and clindamyacin(sp). The metronidozale pills make me very ill and I've even had to undergo 4 pills a day for up to two weeks. Each treatment either didn't work or the BV came back after a couple of weeks even when not sexually active. My self image and confidence was affected negatively and hearing the doctors say there was no other way to treat me left me feeling discouraged and depressed. I didn't feel clean ever. SO after extensive research during which I found that in China doctors begin treatment with natural/holistic remedies and changes in diet and only as a LAST resort prescribe medication I was determined to battle this naturally. I looked all over the internet and finally decided on what I would try. THIS is what I did a week ago. I purchased a Douche package and rinsed and cleaned the bottle. I filled it with about 1/8 apple cider vinegar, the next half with Hydrogen Peroxide, and the final half with water. I swear to you that within a couple of hours I now longer felt the regular discharge I'd been experiencing for most of the last 8 years. It is something I am always aware of so there is no way I would not notice if it was still happening. I became hyper aware waiting to feel it, notice a smell, or see it when I go to the bathroom.

I was prepared to do this for 3-7 days as some forums suggested but after 6 days without any symptoms I have not repeated the douche because this is a new remedy for me and I do not want to overshoot what my body needs and cause more problems. I'm listening closely to my body. Every morning I eat one regular sized container of Greek Yogurt to reintroduce good bacteria. I am so opposed to using any kind of pill for this I will not buy the the Acidophillis or any other vitamin in pill form. I know that it has only been a one week but I decided to share now because someone might be desperate for relief like I was and I'm driven to try to help. I hope if you try this that it works for you. We as a western society are driven by cures in pill form and many times this causes even more unbalance in our bodies. You can get every vitamin you need in the food you choose to eat. I intend to eat Greek yogurt every day for the rest of my life because clearly my body has a problem with maintaining good bacteria. I promise I will update this if my symptoms come back anytime soon. Well that's all ladies. Good luck!!!

I came across two articles by the NIH.

1) Acidophilis produces H2O2:

2) Hydrogen peroxide has been clinically proven to erradicate BV. The ladies who participated in the study were ALL improved by the treatment after a week, and 89% had no recurrance after 3 months. So, its not just us old wives spreading tales to each other, it really does work.


The results clearly show that the use of hydrogen peroxide in vagina can eliminate the main symptoms of bacterial vaginosis, and in particular the malodorous leucoxanthorrhea in 89% of cases at 3 months after the end of treatment, a result that is comparable to that obtained using metronidazole or clindamycin as a vaginal cream. Moreover, hydrogen peroxide facilitates the restoration of normal vaginal bacterial flora (represented by H202-producing lactobacillus) in 100% of cases and normal acid pH (pH<4. 5) in 98% of cases; it also fosters the disappearance of clue cells from vaginal smears and anaerobic pathogenic flora from vaginal secretions in 100% of cases..."

After doing a lot of research I now understand there are alternatives. I have recently started the hydrogen peroxide douche ( I have never douched before, because I was told it could cause BV) , and I have noticed the smell has gone away. I also started taking folic acid once a day and Acidophilis. I am not sure if all this is going to work, but thank you for posting. I really need to try and alternative!

Hi. I had bacterial vaginitis for a year back in 2003. It began shortly after a bladder infection & a bout of heavy duty antibiotics. I tried everything possible but nothing helped until I googled EC & found organic ginger (pills ok) & organic aged garlic supplements listed as a cure. Well within days my BV disappeared along with The strange rash on my torso. Sure enough, candida had attacked my immune system. Ginger & garlic wiped most of the candida away. ACV pills also help me with main ting candida at bay.

Thanks for sharing info, BV is annoying. I thought the wetness and discharge was after sex so we went to the doctor. The doc prescribed pills. They worked. I had my period and going into 2 weeks after I felt the wetness and discharge again I didn't have sexual intercourse at the time. A friend told me she douched with h2o2, I was huh. I was surfing the net for natural remedies at home for acne, nail care, basically the body. I came across this site and another on apple cider vinegar. I zoom in on hydro peroxide and it has so many uses. I couldn't get a douche mechanism so I bought a syringe and I started squirting away, I also used a tampon soak in H2O2. The wetness has lessened. I will douche with H2O2 2 times a week now.

After placing an IUD (spirale) I encountered for the first time bacterial vaginosis. I went to the shame of questions from my docter if I had more sexual contacts. Since I am a stewardess, I felt the prejudgments heavy. Feeling embarassed and ashamed. Thank God for internet. I had to find out myself that the slimy substance with ammoniak smell is a BV! With this again I went to the doctor, who prescribed me metronidazole. This helped, so I was relieqved. Then it came back..... It ruined my self esteem. With my husband no more sex, I was too insecure. Then I found the hydrogen peroxide cure in utter dispair. Yesterday I started. First I had to translate the product in dutch to make sure I found the right cure. That was easy. I mixed half water half h2o2 and some betaine. The water in the vaginal douche I left in for 5 minutes. No more slimy smelly discharge. Overnight I left in a tampon with yoghurt, since I did not have yet the aciduphilis. I used 2x2 folic acid. This morning again took a vaginal h2o2/wat douche. Do noteven have to use pantyliner. Finally dry! I feel sorry for the older generation, who had to battle through this BV without internet. Thanks to these ladies and now altogether I feel we can beat this. You all helped me so much! A grateful, one man minded stewardess.

I read the article for BV and hydrogen peroxide, I tried the douche and ladies it works, I mixed 50/50 solution water and peroxide and douched for three days in a row and the smell and the discharge both were gone, I also used it after having sex to make sure that it would not come back because some reports state that sex could cause it to become active. So far so good and my husband noticed the difference and I feel so much better, it has only been a week but most of the things I have tried only lasted 2-3 days at the most so I am very impressed, I have been suffering with this for over 4 years now.
