Bacterial vaginosis (BV) and a home remedy question?
So I have BV... Went to the doc and they gave me an antibiotic for it and I took it all as prescribed... it helped for a little but the bv came back... I was wondering if the apple cider vinegar in the bathtub actually worked? Heard about it online and threw a friend... And does anyone know of any other natural remedies that work as well? Thank u!

It's awful! I take probiotics and a vinegar tablet every day. Seems to help. But I started by inserting a vitamin C tablet (not a capsule) inside there. Stings a bit and you might bleed a little but it cleans you out. You will have a lot of discharge with the Vit C tab but it helps. You can douche with half-strength hydrogen peroxide. It helps but it comes back. I hate it. Had it for ten years. One thing they say is to stop eating sugar, but I haven't tried that. I love chocolate too much. Good luck!
