Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is pretty yucky: it is the most common vaginal infection, and can effect over 50% of the female population at any given time, causing a nasty fishy odor and some weird discharge.
It’s not always caused by sex. Not all of the causes are known, but it’s basically an overgrowth of “bad” bacteria in a vagina. I’ve suffered from BV once or twice in my life, and I personally think it has everything to do with what hormones I’m producing at any given time in my cycle. Also, leaving cum and using lubricants in my vagina can cause BV symptoms for me (more goodies for bacteria to eat!).
If you’ve had BV and treated it via standard US medicine protocols, you know it can cause a vicious cycle: the antibiotics given to treat BV kill all the bacteria in your vagina (including the “good” ones), leading to a yeast infection. Then, when you treat the yeast infection, the BV returns. And repeat.
The CDC suggests the following basic prevention steps to lower your risk of developing BV:
- Not having sex;
- Limiting your number of sex partners
To which I say: NOT FUCKING LIKELY! This is not a workable solution, so there must be another way!
Many of the home remedies to treat BV involve probiotics, and include putting yogurt and whole capsules of Acidophilus in your vagina. I’ve tried these solutions, and I don’t recommend the yogurt. The whole Acidophilus capsules also don’t dissolve in a vagina well, and can still be there a day or two later. Not good. So I recommend the following:
- Buy Acidophlus/probiotic tablets with the least amount of fillers and additives that you can find
- Crush a tablet up into powder
- Dampen your fingertip to get a good coating of probiotic powder on it
- Stick that finger in your pussy and work it around, Girl!
- Repeat as necessary
The best part of this method is that it doesn’t inhibit your sexual activities. In fact, getting dick will just help to work that probiotic around into places that you can’t reach with a finger. Once it’s up in there. sleep on it, and your fishy odor should improve by morning. Wash your vagina and repeat as necessary (wash with water, not douche). This method also works with minor yeast infections. However, if you aren’t getting the results you need, please see a doctor! Pussies are important, and should be treated as a health priority. Good luck!
