I have always been a very painfully shy woman and I was also an only child. I have never had anyone to talk about what happens “down there.” It is also not in my culture to talk about these things much.Like so many women I just believed the doctor and suffered for years. I took the antibiotics with no change. I was also always getting sick and worried that the antibiotics were affecting my immunity. after I read this ebook, my bacterial vaginosis gone forever. can you imagine?

Bacterial Vaginosis is an infection of the vagina that causes a greyish-white discharge and itching.the disorder is due to excessive growth of bacteria that normally live in the vagina. It is very common in women of reproductive age.

The best course of action to avoid vaginal irritation is to keep the genital area dry giving the region room breathe.

1 Cotton underwear should be worn
2 Change sanitary towels and tampons at regular intervals
3 Refrain from using vaginal sprays, deodorants or other type smellies
4 Remove damp clingy clothing caused through sweating
5 Avoid tight-fitting clothes; not only to help keep vaginal smells at bay but for comfort too
6 Wearing synthetic materials next to the skin can cause irritation
7 Cleanse well after using the loo. Use the front to back motion after bowel movement
8 Hot sweaty conditions should have you wash more

  • I have been suffering from BV since 2006 and i think i have found some reliefI have found that there are a lot of ways u can get it, PH being disturbed by sex, birth control pills, or just from nothing but I will tell u ladies seriously listen to me, DO NOT TRY to fix this problem by simply putting things in your vagina ( douching, cream, pills, yogurt, etc) TRUST ME BV can make you so desperate that you will try everything, i know i have tried a whole lot of remedies. I REPEAT understand that BV is "REOCCURING" BECAUSE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY, some of my girlfriends have gotten it once, treated it and that was it. some other feel something coming on and their bodies get rid of it. we are NOT supposed to get sick from sex. so enough of my soapbox i will tell u what i have doneFIRST GO TO THE DOCTOR AND GET ANTIBIOTICS PILLS, for you and AND YOUR BOYFRIEND/HUSBAND, forget these folks who tell u it's not transmittable ( dont know if that's a word , lol), treat both u and him and abstain from sex during treatment. IMMEDIATELY AFTER TREATMENT, start taking folic acid and VITAMIN C EVERYDAY . FOlic acid promotes reproductive organ health all around and vitamin C helps your immune system. i did this and didnt get an infection until for a couple of days i was having sex and didnt take my vitamins. Then the next thing you should also do is really try to eat healthy, whole foods, veggies, cut sweets and crap from your diet. That's very important. Then ANOTHER reason we keep getting it is because the "flora" of the vagina, once it gets messed up it can take weeks, months and sometimes years to build itself back up so the way u can help it is by detoxifying your body and toning your reproductive organs. Buy some detox herbal teas and drink daily, do body cleanses ( colon, urinary and such), and drink a lot of water. You may be thinking, man that sounds like slavery to be doing all of that, but to be honest i think BV is God's or nature's way of telling me to take care of my body better, so now my pantry is full of herbal teas, and i buy mostly healthy food - ( i have a little pepperidge farm cookie addiction:-)) but if i do right by my body the majority of the time, it's ok to splurge sometimes. So far so good. My last bout of BV is still lingering just a little bit, but the reason it's not like a raging beast is because i m detoxifying and taking vitamins , so in effect right now my body is fighting it and it feels great to feel in control because honestly, even though i recommended doing the antibiotics treatment to start the regime, i do not recommend running to the doctor every couple of weeks to get antibiotics, it's going to hurt your body after a couple of sessions because your will also kill good bacteria in your gut and vagina and that messes up the flora even more. It kills me that doctors NEVER mention diet and holistic lifestyle changes to fix this problem, it's amazing, i guess since they cannot patent it, then it's not a good option. Also buy Chasteberry tea or pills ( tones uterus) and cerasee tea ( purifies blood and body, but tastes nasty) and try to incorporate herbal tea in your diet daily. I have seen results. Do not let this thing ruin your life, self esteem, relationship or marriage, stay strong and keep your head up.
