Treatment of Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)

Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)

Treatment

 

General Guidelines

 

      Don’t create an environment in GI tract and vaginal tract conducive to non-beneficial bacteria

 

-       Lay off the sugar and carbs  (which turn to sugar after metabolism) you’re giving the bacterial  “unfriendlies” and fungi a reproductive party.

 

      While the infection itself is not considered dangerous - if not treated, the bacteria may spread up into the uterus or fallopian tubes and lead to a more serious infection.

 

After treatment, the condition generally resolves without complications, but up to 15% of women have recurrent symptoms that need to be treated with a second course of treatment.

 

BV Treatment Options

 

      Mainstream medical Antibiotics - Metronidazole (Flagyl) and clindamycin (Cleocin) are examples of antibiotics that are effective in treating BV. Unfortunately, most are aware that antibiotics kill off all bacteria (good and bad), which then creates more problems E.g. Yeast infection, weakens immune system.

 

      Most recommended DIY treatment -  involves 3% hydrogen peroxide, folic acid and Lactobaccilus probiotic bacteria (particularly, L. acidophilus)

 

Do all of the following both morning and night for 5 days:

 

(1)    Douche with hydrogen peroxide – to reduce overpopulating unwanted bacteria. Fill the douche bottle with ½ cup  water + ½ cup 3% hydrogen peroxide. Sit in shower and insert as far as you can and douche. Keep your knees up - it's easier to hold inside. Try to hold it in for 5-10 minutes

 

(2)    Take folic acid supplement – 800 mcg

 

 

(3)    Use Lactobacillus species probiotics (E.g. L.. acidophilus and L. Bifidus) – to repopulate both the intestines and the vaginal tract with the “good guys”

 

-       Take oral probiotic dose  Minimum 10 billion CFUs per dose. This can be:

 

(a)    A quality probiotic supplement

Or

 

(b)   A quality, probiotic-containing yogurt with no added sugar (E.g. Organic Stonyfield, plain yogurt has the necessary numbers and types of live cultures)

 

How to increase body’s probiotics

How to supplement probiotics

 

-       Also put probiotic bacteria in the vagina – either place a probiotic capsule or a quality, probiotic-containing yogurt-soaked tampon in the vagina. For some extra “oof” to the therapy , you can first use a turkey baster to insert some yogurt into the vagina before inserting the yogurt-soaked tampon, which should hold the extra yogurt in place.

 

 

      Boric acid powder for BV (or yeast infection) - works by reacidifying vagina and killing off problem fungus and/or bacteria.

 

-       Treatment:

 

         Fill size zero gel capsules - with <2% boric acid powder (you can find it most pharmacies, it’s not the kind to get rid of cockroaches).

 

         Insert filled capsules into vagina nightly - as you're lying down to go to bed, insert two gel (some ladies use only one with success) caps into vagina for 3- 10 days (until symptoms are gone), Staying flat helps to keep the boric acid inside of you. When you get up the next morning you’ll need to wash off ooze.

 

-       Boric acid is also used whilst taking antibiotics to prevent a yeast infection
