I've noticed after treatments, the vagina emits an itchy discharge as it cleanses and detoxifies. It is best to flush the vagina with warm water of discharge for approx 2/3 days before attempting another treatment, as over-treating with HP will only weaken the overall homeostasis of good bacteria and delay healing. The infection was lodged in my right ovary/fallopian tube and was painful at times

i say 'treatments' because I had been in a sexual relationship for a year where my male partner was repeatedly reinfecting me due to his own denial and lack of responsibility and even down right manipulation to get sex. So, be sure to address the nature of your relationship. A horny, careless man isn't worth damage to ovaries and overall loss of sensitivity. Sex has not been the same since and I am abstaining until fully healed and a more honest, communicative, understanding man enters my life. Anyway, hopefully the knowledge I've gained from my experience can help someone else. And if there is a man who has achieved cures through natural methods, plz plz post on the BV male link because technique and treatment knowledge for men is needed

here are some suggestions to apply to your own experimentation:

if you are experiencing discomfort right now, put this down and go flush the vagina with warm water and then come back to this with a clearer mind. Lie on your back and pour water into yourself anyway you can. Repeat until the water runs clear.

Water flushes, I am convinced, are the most important go-to to gage how the healing is coming along. Do not expect results overnight, though that could happen depending on your individual condition. If the infection doesn't clear after a 2/3 days of water flushes, you know its time for another treatment

I use a large plastic syringe bought in the kitchenware section of the dollar store.

First, flush vagina of any discharge. Then put 1 capful of HP in with purified water (if you have it), lay on your back and let it sit for at least 5 min, or longer if the infection is in your ovaries. In that case, you might even want to repeat with another capful + water. One treatment was enough to at least get rid of the horrid fishy smell

if you require another treatment, try next a few spoonfuls of the best, purest, probiotic plain yogurt you can buy. Dilute it with water and let it sit 5-10 min. I suppose acidophilus would work too, but I never tried it. Flush out yogurt with water

if you find that your BV has now uncovered symptoms of a yeast infection, insert a clove of garlic and let sit overnight.

If symptoms are reoccurring, repeat the cycle of treatments with regular water flushes. HP is very strong, so I recommend no more than 2 capfuls per treatment and after a period of water flushes, replenish good bacteria with yogurt. But you must learn what works for you as ever body is different! In my case, ACV did not work

Unfortunately, I cant remember which treatment finally cleared the infection from my ovaries but I think it was the colloidal silver. At this point, I was motivated by shear frustration from re-infection and an emotionally/physically unhealthy sexual relationship and not thinking too clearly, so details are missing. But I would suggest for anyone really suffering and the above mentioned treatments not working to try 1 capful of CS. I used 2 and thought that might have been too much, but perhaps it wasn't

ok, well I hope this helps! Be sure to cleanse the body with healthy foods as well. I eat LOTS OF YOGURT. it works wonders. and remember, most importantly, the importance of creating harmonious and hopefully loving sexual relationships! Blessings!

To be honest I think my BV started after dating this guy who wasn't circumcised. But it isn't always caught that way. I just noticed that it started while and still after.... My bv went away for a while, but after I had my child it returned... Of course I got prescribed the metro gel and the dflucan multiple times! I was sooo tired of it. I prayed to God about it. My husband even started to really let it effect our marriage . I was like God I know this isn't what life is supoosed to be. I was std negative and pretty healthy. Butttt! I looked healthy but honestly I wasn't.... I barely drunk water. I rarely had fresh vegetables or fruits.... I loved to eat alot of sweets. Im not over weight. 5"1" 106 pounds... Like I said I looked healthy....soooo I started off with just taking odorless garlic pills and folic acid pills... Instantly the smell was gone.... So I vowed to God that I would only drink water. And this helped a lot! I also dropped all unnatural sweets no candy or doughnuts...

Then one day the garlic pills turned on me lol... It made me smell super cheesy... So I backed off of the garlic pills. And started the half peroxide half distill water douches! And took 3 800mg folic acid pills. Some days I would take 2 some days 3....anyways yall I couldn't stop sticking a q-tip into my vagina every day for a smell check and it has been ordorless for 20 days...

Also I did drink Kefir for like 2weeks and it worked as well. I just actually started the acidophilus pills. I had a very bad sore throat and I got prescribed some antibiotics ...of course my period came on ...of course I got a yeast infection from the antibiotics! But I never stopped taking my folic acid pills.. Still no scent! My period felt normal too no extra ordors.... But I mixed crushed acidophilus pills with peroxide and the distilled water tonight, just in case BV tries to reresurface. I will also start taking an acidophilus pill in the am and pm along with the folic acid.

But in all honesty I feel good and I smell like nothing dead lol.... I just had to come back on here and say that the combos do work. And I thank God❤ btw my husband can't keep his hands off of me! Ladies you are not alone! Be honest with yourself and drop the bad stuff out of your diet.... Drink plenty of water too. I hope this gives someone a peace of mind. Im glad God helped me find this site! Sorry it's so long! If anyone has any questions please ask away! Have a blessed day❤

It works ladies! I have done a combination of the hydrogen peroxide douche, acidophilus and folic acid. For the douche I inserted an acidophilus pill used half water and half hydrogen peroxide. After douching be sure to douche again with just cold water so the hydrogen peroxide doesn't burn the skin. I repeated two times a day. I also take acidophilus by mouth everyday. This has provided instant relief for and I've had no side effects.

Hello. So first off I'm really excited I've run into this. I've been battling BV since I was 16... (now 28) and I'm positive my flare ups happen with new sex partners and sometimes my period. I'm sick of antibiotics as I know it doesn't take care of the underlying issue but simply strips all bacteria away leaving your V confused only for the infection to return...in my case. I was BV free for a year or so a couple years ago and thought I was free. Until a few months ago...it returned and I got antibiotics. It hasn't stayed gone more then a week in 6 months. I could cry. I found this site and am on day 2 of 2× day dough of 1/2 distilled water 1/2 3% peroxide, after the morning douche I insert Acidophilus capsule to restore good bacteria. I also take orally the Acidophilus 2× per day and Folic Acid 1× per day. After day one I had little to no symptoms except a little bit of itching/mild burning. Here on Day 2...basically no symptoms at all. Smell is gone also.

My question is how long to keep up with this? I was thinking 7 days. Also wondering what preventative measure should be taken after the treatment considering I actually get rid of this. I don't want it to come back. It has ruined me mentally and sex has been embarrassing plenty of times...although no complaints, it bothers me. If this works I literally will cry happy tears.

So, maintenance? And how do you deal with periods as this has been a trigger for me also. I want to be able to have unprotected sex with my partner freely with out the worry of waking up to this awful situation like we used to. Also I use a PH balanced feminine wash. Input would be appreciated. And I will post updates. Thank you :)

You will not be disappointed! I have been dealing with bv and yeast infections for about a year. 1 to 2 times a month and I already tried everything that over the counter and prescribed. this past Saturday I noticed my inseparable friend bv was back and I came across this website. I work at a hospital so I brought home 2 10ml flushes (syringes) and the first night I diluted the h2o2, a ratio of 1:9 ml. 2 flushes Saturday night. Since in the hospital the most used schedule for antibiotics is every 12 hours, I decided to do the same thing with the h2o2. YES! It has worked. 2 days later (today) is the first time in about a year that my panties are 99.9% dry. no discharge.

I have an appointment w/ a vaginal imbalance specialist in the summer( yes 3 months way) that I can see myself cancelling, that's how optimistic I feel w/ the results I just got.

ps: 1st time writing a review only because I know it really works and I absolutely love the results.

Thank you so much for this recommendation! I have had BV for years ( I am 34 and it started when I was around 24 or 25) and since I am not sexually active, I could not understand why I was having these problems. I would just wait until it would go away. However it go so bad 2 years ago that the bottom of my stomach ached and my undergarment was soaked with discharge. Just like everyone else, I was given antibiotics that only offered a temporary fix and I was too embarassed to keep asking for more. Recently, the odor got to be embarassing and unbearable so I decided to look for what else I could do.

The hydrogen peroxide douche is excellent. I used 1/2 hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 bottled water. After the first cleaning, the odor was drastically reduced and so was the discharge. After three douch treatments and daily doses of acidophulus and folic acid tablets, it is now 5 days later and I am finally good. These treatments worked much faster and better than the antibiotics. ( And the douche provided an extra bonus because I feel clean. ) The douche did not burn when I used it. I also slept without panties so that that area could get air and I would wear cotton panties only to assist with that area getting air during the day. I also bathe that area with an antibacterial soap. Thank you all so much for sharing. I feel like a brand new woman!

This will work for you. You just need a bit of patience. Completely cured in 2 weeks. Purchase the following:
Summer's Eve disposable douche (empty the contents), Folic Acid 800 mcg, Hydrogen Peroxide and the best Acidophilus you can find. Folic Acid - 800 mcg - twice a day. Acidophilus - Need 4 capsules a day. Hydrogen Peroxide - Several bottles

AM - Take 1 acidophilus and 1 folic acid orally and douche with solution of 1/2 Hydrogen Perox. & 1/2 water. Noon - Take 1 acidophilus orally

Evening - Take 1 acidophilus & 1 Folic Acid orally. Douche with same mixture as AM. Insert 1 acidophilus vaginally (after douching)

If you want to add an extra Acidophilus vaginally at noon, it couldn't hurt. By week three I cut the douching to once a day and continued the oral regimen. By week four, I quit using the peroxide douches but continued with the supplements. I have not had any symptoms of BV for 3 weeks. If anything changes, I'll submit an update.

My mom would say "what is that smell," so I'd go and change into the extra clothes and undwerwear I brought with me. THANKU THANKU THANK U!!!!! So far its been 3 days, and I'm praying it keeps up. THe BEST!

I came across this site after a sneaking suspicion I was dealing with BV again. I'd only had it once before after sex with a new partner years ago, and back then I was prescribed metro and was fine, plus I dumped the guy. No problems for 2 years after. I'm positive I got it from a new sex partner, again, and I dumped him fast. It wasn't to the point where I was smelling like a fish tank before my last period, but there was a distinct sour smell and alot of drainage and after my period was over... Yuck. My new insurance isn't effective yet so here I am.

Here is my own version of the treatment per the other ladies' suggestions:

800mg Folic Acid, twice daily.
A 3% peroxide-soaked tampon inserted every evening for about an hour while lying down.
Acidophillus (the refrigerated kind) - three 135mg tablets at least twice daily.

I've been doing this for a week and it seems to be working. Last night was the first time I didn't sound like a soda pop fizzing "down there" from all that gunk the peroxide soaked tampon was attacking. I took the tampon out and it was CLEAN. No gunk or anything stuck to it. I have some minimal drainage but no smell, and I feel comfortable most of the time. I'm going to ease off of the peroxide for the next few days but keep up the pills.

This website is really awesome - I'm so glad I found it. Y'all need to keep up the re-posting because I need to know if this works long term or if I need to tweak it. I'll definitely re-post if I come up with anything new. I thank God for all of you and for Earth Clinic!!!

Hello, thanks for the website. I like most women have suffered from Bacterial Vaginosis for the past 2-3 years. Nothing worked until I tried the Hydrogen Perixide Douche. It's been almost 4 weeks and I'm great.

After reading the stories I decided to give it a try. One night at about 7pm I emptied a summer's eve douch bottle, filled it with 50% H202 and 50% water. Inserted into my vagina and held for 30sec. I took 2 folic Acid pills (400mcg) along w/2 Acidophilus pills by mouth. By morning the smell was gone. I did this for three days straight. The smell stayed away for about 7 days and then it came back. So I repeated the steps, only this time I inserted 2 Acidophilus pills (pill form) into my vagina immediately after douching. I douched for 3 days straight. I stopped douching but continued to take pills by mouth. It's been about 4 weeks and I havent had a problem since. Hopefully I am cured. I continue to take the pills by mouth. I will give an update in 1 month.

I have been suffering for 5 years with BV. I started doing the H202 douche 1x/day plus 800 folic and 2 capsules of acidophilus. It is the first regimen that has worked and could not be happier. I am so petrified of the BV coming back that I have been doing this regimen for about 2 months never missing a day. I am now planning on getting pregnant. Does anyone know if the this is a safe regimen to continue while pregnant?

Hello everyone. I am glad to be posting this info on this website, since I thought I was the only one with this problem. I have suffered with this problem for amost 15 years, until I came across this website. I just wanted to say that I did the Peroxide Douche only once (50%water/50%Peroxide) and then inserted 1 Acidolphilis pill (not capsule) in to my vajayjay for 7 days. I bought Folic Acid pills (500 mg) and I take 2 daily--one at night and one in the morning. I do the acidolphils pills the same (by mouth). I have been doing this for a month now and I have not have one issue, no smell, no itching, no burning, no nothing. I want to thank whoever made this website. I also wanted to add that if you do decide to douche more often please make sure you insert an acidophilis pill ASAP. I think that is the problem with the girls who are mentioning there problem is getting worse because you flush the bad and the good out when you douche--but you need to replenish the good ASAP. Thank you all for your honesty and help. I will keep you posted (30 days from now) And to the girl who says it burns when she uses the monistate--that means you don't have a yeast infection. Its either BV or something else. But, following this procedure is supposed to help trichonomisis too.

I have been dealing with BV for years. I get it once a month no matter what and it is always right in the middle of my cycle. I have tried every medication under the sun. Flagyl has gotten to where it no longer works for me...my body has gotten immune to it I assume. The creams that you have to insert for days on end, make me feel terribe. I had reached my wits end and stumbled upon this website. I was skeptical at first and didn't get to excited. However I did go out and purchase the accidlophoulus, folic acid and Hydrogen Peroxide. Been taking the pills as well as doing the peroxide douche twice a day for 6 days. IT REALLY DOES WORK!!! I am just wondering if it will continue to work or if I can possibly get immune to this as well?? I urge any woman with BV to at least give this a try. I have also read that hydrogen peroxide can help cure yeast infections as well. Has anyone tried this and found it to be true?
