Anyone treated bv without antibiotics?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have had bv in the past but always put on metronidazole for 10 days. I'm wondering if anyone got rid of symptoms by changing diet and doing apple cider vinegar baths or using tea tree essential oil ect. If so I'd love to hear what you did and how long it takes to get back to normal. Thank you!

    Hi, you can treat BV successfully with raw organic honey. I posted this reply to someone else just a few minutes ago: “I will tell you what I’ve been telling everyone: Raw organic honey works for BV. Insert a small amount on the tip of your finger, once in the morning and again at night before bed. Use a panty liner to catch the honey when it seeps back out. (Enough will remain inside to do its work.) Honey is very effective at restoring the natural balance of vaginal flora, has no side effects and is relatively east to use.” I discovered this remedy after 2 years of BV—and was symptom free within a day of starting the honey treatment. I want to add that there is a lot of natural advice (about honey, vinegar and other remedies) at a site called Whole Woman Village Forum. (My comment may get flagged if I include the link, so just Google it.)

    You’re welcome, Brooke. I’ve learned that many women have BV, and after a lot of research I have found that antibiotics rarely cure it. (Antibiotics are much less effective for most bacterial infections nowadays because of overuse.) I wish more women would give honey a try.
