Bacterial Vaginosis – Home Remedy
Getting Rid of BV is All About Restoring Balance ... In Your Vagina ... & In Your Body! You see, normally there is a delicate balance of "good" bacteria and "bad" bacteria in the vagina. The good bacteria control the growth of the bad. When you get bacterial vaginitis, the balance is upset. There are not enough good bacteria and too many bad bacteria. So how do you get BV? The experts aren't sure. They say certain things may increase your risk, such as having more than one sex partner, smoking and douching.

Certain conditions, such as pregnancy, Lupus, and low or high estrogen can also increase your chances for getting it. Here in the United States about 16% of the pregnant women are also battling with bacterial vaginitis.
But what it all comes down to is you got it ... now what are you going to do about it? Battling BV from over the counter creams to prescription antibiotic will never work nor it will cure the BV You can't keep avoiding sex because of the excess discharge and the fishy smell, as the lack of intimacy could drive you and your husband or boyfriend apart. You can't keep spending tons of money on douches, deodorants, mini-pads, perfumes and just about anything else you can think of because these things often make the smell worse not better! And you can't keep using antibiotics because they often don't work at all and other times seem to get rid of the BV for a while, until it inevitably returns. Why don't antibiotics work?
