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!!! : )
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.
I have been suffering from bv for a few years off and on again. The discharge and the smell was becoming unbearable. And I was tired of the antibiotics from the drs. I looked up home remedies for bv and found this site. Once I read the post I was a little scared but I figured it could not be any worse then the he'll I was in. So I used the hydrogen peroxide last week. I filled half of the douche bottle with warm water and the other half with the peroxide. It burned a little at first but i took a cool wash cloth and placed it on my vagina until it stopped and there has been no odor no any discharge since. This site is very helpful !!!!!!
Feminine Odor - Cure:
I tried spring water and peroxide douche (I made it myself)!!! It REALLY WORKS immediately and lasts for weeks!!!!!! Thank GOD for this website!! I found it here!!!
Hydrogen Peroxide is perfect for curing BV!
I had BV once a few years ago and was given an antibiotic for it. It did the job. I had the same symptoms last month (strong rotton fish odor), so I knew it was BV. After a urinalysis and culture sample, my doctor actually told me there was nothing wrong, but gave me the antibiotics anyway. It cleared my symptoms. Within a month, I noticed a slight change in my vaginal smell, so I knew the BV was back. I didn't want to wait until the smell overpowered me again, but I didn't want to take any more antibiotics. They're not really good for you as they kill ALL bacteria, even the good ones. I did a search online for natural cures and found this web site. I saw that the Hydrogen Peroxide cure is all over the internet, and since I always have some handy, I tried it right away.
I measured 30 ml of non-diluted H2O2 in a turkey baster. With a towel under me, I lay down with my legs over my head and, using a mirror, squeezed the H202 into my relaxed vagina. (I did not insert the baster. It's much simpler to squeeze it in from the outside.)
Stay relaxed or you will push the liquid out. I waited 5 minutes before releasing the H2O2 into the toilet.
I did this once a day for 7 days. After the first treatment, the smell was negligible. After the second treatment, the smell was completely gone. It did the H2O2 reaction did fizz a little, but did not burn or feel uncomfortable.
Cheap, easy, immediate, effective, natural, and private. Try it.
For anyone who doubts if hydrogen peroxide cures BV, it really, really does, don't hesitate to try it. I had BV for months and tried all sorts of expensive antibiotics which only worked temporarily, and the infection would return after a few days. My doctor even prescribed flagylstatin which was horribly expensive and only worked for about 7 days. When I complained about the recurring infection, all the the doctor could suggest was that i get another prescription for antibiotics!! I found the information about hydrogen peroxide from this website, and other sites. I bought a reusable douche kit from the drugstore and douched with the half hydrogen peroxide, half water solution for 7 days and my BV cleared up completely. It has been 3 months, and there have been no symptoms whatsoever. The one thing I noticed was the symptoms did not improve until I started douching deep in the vagina (about 3 inches). The shallow douching (1 inch or so) did not work for me. I am also continuing with folic acid. God bless everyone that put the information about this miraculous and INEXPENSIVE cure on this website.
Hello! I read this site six months ago and decided to try the one part hydrogen peroxide and one part water douche for my reoccuring (i.e. every month or two) BV and yeast infections. I douche with this mix everytime after my husband and I are intimate and I can say that I have been BV and yeast infection free for all six months!! It is absolutely amazing. I had done a lot of research on possible causes and found that PH was a big factor. I also read that our bodies produce hydrogen peroxide naturally so I was less nervous about trying it. My infections started after my husband I got married (I was a virgin before). I had also read that semen is very alkaline. I figured that he was very alkaline and my body was not able to regulate my PH on its own. All my research took a long time between treatments at the doc (metronidozole, etc.) and OTC treatments. One time, a year and a half ago, I douched with only 30 ml of hydrogen peroxide after we were intimate and I was infection free for several months. I then decided to do this every other time we were intimate and my infections came back. For some reason I didn't attribute the reoccurrence to my not using the hydrogen peroxide everytime and did another round of doc visits and terrible medicines that only worked for a few weeks. Then I came back here and read someone's idea of doing the half water half hydrogen peroxide and decided to try doing it after sex everytime. It has worked! For anyone suffering from BV and/or yeast infections - I recommend doing this! I buy the disposable douches from the store, like summer's eve (they already have some mix in them but I dump it out and just use the bottle for a few weeks, being very careful to keep it clean), make my half water half H202 mix and rinse after sex and that's that! Sometimes it burns a bit but then I just hold a warm wash cloth to the area and the burning goes away in a couple mins. I hope this helps some people because no one should have to live with these infections!
Hey Ladies, BV Hydrogen Peroxide Remedy WORKS GOOD!
I wanted to take the time to say Hydrogen Peroxide is the magical cure, I used 3% to clear up Bacterial Vaginosis on a tampon the kind with the plastic applicator that way to will stay in as the solution expands it. Take a large shot glass fill it with 3 parts 3% Hydrogen peroxide fro local drug store and 1 part bottled spring water, it is more pure than tap. Soak tampon for about 30 seconds insert it for a half hour remove and repeat no ore than three times a week. I was nervous at first because I thought peroxide was to harsh but it isn't it shouldn't even burn. It should feel refreshing. Good Luck LADIES Hydrogen peroxide is naturally produced in the Vagina. I
I am also trying 1400mcg of Folic Acid a day! I will up date you on that soon. Thank you ladies for your feedback it really helped me.
I have had bv for probably two years now,not knowing what it was until late last year when the smell and the itching was really bad. i went to the gynae got meds and it didnt help at all (flagly and metro...) i found this site this morning hoping to find out what bv was really about. i did and tried the 1/2 peroxide 1/2 distilled water douche. when squeezing in the solution i didnt know what to expect..then i saw yellow looking discharge coming more like flowing out. i waited 3 and a half minutes, squeezed out all the liqiud from the vagina, then waited a minute. the area started foaming and it burned for a second. i then washed the area thoroughly with water..i actually dont feel itchy and dont smell anything literally anything..i will start the acidophlius later on when i eat. i will comment on my condition in a week... thannk u to every woman who posted their experience im very sure it made us all feel normal in the way that we werent alone.
Like most other posters, I've suffered with BV for almost 10 years, getting it sometimes up to 4 times a year. I always took metronidazole and that cured it, but the past 6 months it has not. I think maybe my body is simply resistant from taking it so much. A few months ago I again got it, and it is ALWAYS after I have sex that I get it. I took the metronidazole and it got better but not cured. After several weeks I thought it was gone but after having sex again it once again came back. Took metronidazole AGAIN and it didn't work. This BV has been affecting my life so much! I needed to find something that would work and found this website, I was skeptical at first about using hydrogen peroxide on my "lady parts" because it seemed harsh but after doing some research I found that actually the "good" bacteria in the vagina produce hydrogen peroxide naturally so I figured it was safe, plus all the testimonials here.
Before I started treating myself, I had a thick discharge with itching and burning. I used a 1/2 water, 1/2 hydrogen peroxide douche the first night before bed, it didn't burn but did feel tingly for awhile. The next morning I couldn't tell if I was better or not. It seemed the same so I soaked a tampon in 3% peroxide and put it in for about 30 mins. Again, same tingly feeling. That lasted a couple hours and I thought "Oh no, I might have made it worse" but then as the hours passed I felt better and better. By that night the discharge was much less and the burning was gone, just some mild itching now and again. I did the 1/2 peroxide 1/2 water douche again before bed and soaked another tampon with 3% peroxide, left it in about 10 mins. No tingling. This morning I woke up feeling better. Still a little discharge but nothing like it was. Over the course of the day I have felt better and better and now it's bedtime and I have no discharge and the itching is almost completely gone. Wow! I would say it's important to try the peroxide more than one time to ensure that it helps but also give your body some time to get balanced again. It won't be 100% fixed overnight, but I am definately on the right track, thanks to everyone who posted!
I'm a seventeen year old mother of one and i've been suffering from bv for almost two years, it's hell! i like most have visited the doctor for this many times and all i got out of it was a yucky cream or pill that was actually a yeast infection medication. a couple of weeks ago i went to the clinic and the nurse told me that i might have been suffering from bv and gave me diflacan, of course it didn't work. i decided to do a little research on bv and i came across this site, i saw that many women tried hydrogen peroxide (h202) in a douche and they had great reviews on it. i went to the local drug store last night and got the peroxide and douche, i poured 30cc's of peroxide into the douche and tried it when i took a shower. i did this three times and washed my vagina with (summer's eve feminine body wash for sensitive skin) when i woke up this morning the oh so familiar odor and discharge were completely gone! the discharge has come back slightly but i intend on douching regularly with peroxide for the next seven days. i hope this works for you!
I have dealt with BV for years. After medication from the doctors that never really worked I started to do research on it. I found a site from a Midwife. I decided to try the following hydrogen peroxide wash.
Directions for hydrogen peroxide washes:
Take a 30 cc syringe (without the needle) place 3 cc of hydrogen peroxide and fill the rest with distilled water. Insert the syringe in the vagina about an inch and push the fluid in. Do this once a day for seven days.
During treatment period the partner should wear condoms during intercourse. To prevent recurrences the partner should wash after intercourse with a mild antibacterial soap (like dial). I also had my husband wash with this every day for seven days even if there was no intercourse.
The only thing different I did was in addition to the above I got a perineal care bottle and put 1 to 2 oz of peroxide then I filled the rest of it with warm water, shake it to make sure it is mixed well then I would wash my genital area every time I went to the bath room, this seemed to help with the itching.
I have only had one reoccurance with BV in three years and I did the above and it has not come back.
I know this worked well for me but some people do respond differently to things. Hope it works.
Pam, stick with full strength 3% HP for at least the 7 days. DO NOT be lazy about it, just because the smell is gone after the 1st, 2nd day does not mean you're completely healed. DO 7 days straight. I'd say start the remedy AFTER your period. Blood is alkaline so is male pre-ejaculate/sperm and also female "lubrication/juice", that's why it comes back even with condom use. After 7 days, you should start feeling better without itch, odor, and decreased discharge. Do not have sex "OR" orgasm on your own (female juice is alkaline, it will set you back and you'll have to start from the beginning). No blood no sexual activity for the 7 days. I'm into my 3rd week even after sex and PERIOD!! My discharge is changing back to it's original consistency and texture. I have no odor whatsoever!! I actually have less of a "NORMAL" odor now than before I did the HP remedy - weird. Ladies 3% Hydrogen Peroxide works but, you have to use it FULL strength. Do washes NONE of that 1/2 and 1/2 douching. Douching IS bad for you. Ladies I wish you the best of luck with this crap of an ailment. Try this. It's working for so far. I smell like air!! Hooorayyy!!
