Natural Cures For BV – Treating Bacterial Vaginosis Naturally

If you are a regular sufferer of this condition, you may be interested to learn that there are a number of natural cures for BV. Bacterial vaginosis is caused by an overgrowth of harmful bacteria in the vagina which is triggered by an imbalance in the naturally occurring pH levels.

Under normal circumstances, the pH level of a healthy vagina is mildly acidic. When the balance shifts and the environment becomes alkaline, harmful bacteria flourishes and the unpleasant symptoms of bacterial vaginosis will occur, which include that horrible burning and itching sensation in and around the vagina and the embarrassing fishy smelling vaginal discharge which is watery in consistency and white or gray in color.

It can be very difficult to determine just what has caused BV and this is why so many women find that they suffer on and off for many years as they never manage to successfully eliminate the root cause. However, by treating bacterial vaginosis naturally, it is possible to both enhance the immune system and treat the symptoms.

Two excellent natural cures for BV are probiotic yogurt and tea tree oil.

Probiotic yogurt is rich in live, beneficial bacteria which is the type which is lacking when you have bacterial vaginosis. Although some natural therapists advocate eating a pot each day, I believe that the best way of using probiotics for treating bacterial vaginosis naturally is to soak a tampon in it and insert it directly into the vagina. However, that\’s not to say that eating a pot of live yogurt daily isn\’t good for your digestive system!

Tea tree oil is a powerful, natural antiseptic oil and is used to treat all manner of conditions. There various ways it can be used as natural cures for BV. It can be used in pessary form, whereby pre-prepared capsules are used, or a few drops can be added to a shallow bath. Others might recommend bathing the vaginal area with a solution of tea tree oil, but if the dilution is not right, this could cause further irritation.

Although not harmful in its early stages, if bacterial vaginosis is left untreated it can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease and can even render some women infertile. Therefore, it is always a good idea to treat the condition promptly. You are particularly at risk if you get repeated attacks.

By treating bacterial vaginosis naturally, you can quickly restore balance in the vagina and get back to normal within no time, even if you are a long term sufferer.
