  • Bacterial Vaginosis(BV)

    I need help! Im 18 soon to be 19, I have had BV for some months now. At first I didn't know what it was untill i started doing some researching. I am so tired of it! The discharge and the smell.. I'm really embarrassed by it. I tried finding ways to get rid of it but nothing works. I was thinking about usen the Hydrogen Peroxide with water method or drinking water with baking soda, but i am not sure if it is safe to do and if they actually work.. So please, any help will help me at this point.. and if anyone has tried the two methods i named and it has work please let me know. Im so ready to get rid of this.

  • Have you seen a doctor? They will make sure it's BV and not a yeast infection and should give you antibiotics. Shoving drying and damaging materials in there is not going to help. Have you taken probiotics? Ate lots of yogurt and acidophilus or equivalent capsules? The vagina is made to fight bacteria so you need to get it healthy not damage it more. You need to boost good bacteria levels, get the tissue in good health, and maintain an acidic environment. Make sure when you use the toilet you are wiping front to back or you could push bacteria in to the vagina. Baking soda is an alkaline. I would try something acidic like some apple cider vinegar. The good little unfiltered bottles and not the giant bottles of regular vinegar with flavoring.
