Natural Treatment of Male Partner Bacterial Vaginosis
While Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is by its very nature a female health problem, it can certainly be passed between partners. Additionally, many women report that they got their first case of BV after having unprotected sex with a new male partner. For this reason, a woman with BV may need to have her partner treat himself as well. Natural treatment of male partner bacterial vaginosis include home remedies such as apple cider vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, oregano oil and dietary changes.
1. Hydrogen Peroxide
3% hydrogen peroxide found in drug stores and grocery stores in a brown bottle is a simple and inexpensive topical antibacterial. It can even be bought in a spray bottle, which is extremely convenient to use after a shower. Hydrogen peroxide is then used to clean the entire private area following each shower.
2. Vitamin C
A weakened immune system is more likely to experience an outbreak of bacteria. A vitamin C supplement, taken internally will strengthen the immune system and help it to fight bacterial infections. 500-1,000 mg of vitamin C can be taken three times a day, or even more often for serious illness. If your body has had enough vitamin C, it will flush it out through the bowel. If you experience diarrhea with your vitamin C supplement, cut back the amount you take.
