Well, I've tried yogurt, garlic, and then tea tree oil - nothing. So I tried this website : www.arcadiaherbs.com, go to "herbal support for chronic bacterial vaginosis". I ordered the herbs and take two a day. I also went the website that someone mentioned about bv in a virgin. They talk about using hydrogen peroxide as a vaginal wash, not douche, for 7 days (to correct the ph balance), then right after your period and maybe even after intercourse if you want. After three days - no sypmtoms, after sex - no symptoms, and since my period just ended - still no symptoms. I also take a multi vitamin w/zinc, flax seed oil, garlic & vitamin C. I hope this will rid me of this horrible curse. None of it costs too much and it's a fairly simple routine to get into. My step mother is an RN and she agrees that the peroxide should not be detrimental to my body in any way. I don't know which of the above has been the real help, but I'll stick to all of it for now. If anyone tries this routine - good luck. I've been bv free for about 2 1/2 weeks - and it has been wonderful.
