Bacterial Vaginosis Remedy

Bacterial Vaginosis is a very common condition that occurs in women. Unfortunately some women will find that the problem becomes recurrent. However there are remedies that can be used to treat the problem and make sure that it does not come back.

Bacterial Vaginosis or BV is caused by an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in the vagina. A healthy vaginal environment will include small amounts of certain bacteria and when an overgrowth occurs and the balance is thrown off BV can arise. This can happen for a variety of reasons and often times the reason is never known. Some things that may make it more likely for the condition to appear is poor hygiene, intercourse without the use of a condom, frequent douching, or even birth control pills. Birth control pills changes the amount of hormones in the body and this in turn can change the consistencies of vaginal fluids. These changes may give rise to the same imbalances that lead to bacterial vaginosis.

So how can you find a bacterial vaginosis remedy? Your doctor will often prescribe you with an antibiotic. The antibiotic will usually clear up the problem promptly. However, if you have recurrent BV antibiotics can prove to just be a mask on the problem. Some natural and home remedies have been known to work such as the use of tea tree oil or even yogurt and garlic. These remedies will help get your body back into balance.

As always you should check with a medical professional before you attempt treatments for any disorders even if you are planning on using home remedies.
