When it comes to Bacterial Vaginosis, there are usually two treatment approaches: There are the conventional bacterial vaginosis treatments and then we have alternative treatment options also.
If you visit a doctor, it is likely that he will rather stick with the conventional treatments which is treating the BV using antibiotics.
The antibiotics are then taken orally, some forms of it can also be applied externally. Furthermore, antibiotics can sometimes be fairly expensive also.
But this is not the problem with antibiotics. The problem is rather that antibiotics are really a “brute force” treatment.
We know antibiotics are effective at killing off the bacteria in the vagina, there is no question about it. But antibiotics they do not take into the account the sensible and very important balance of microorganisms in the vagina.
This kind of treatment does not differ between “good” bacteria and “bad” bacteria. By simply eliminating all vaginal bacteria they basically ignore the importance of restoring and keeping a healthy, natural vaginal environment.
A disturbance of the otherwise balanced and healthy environment of microorganisms is the reason for bacterial vaginosis outbreaks in the first place. Normally, the female body can very well adjust and regulate itself in that regard, there is a natural mechanism in place which keeps infections like Bacterial Vaginosis from appearing.
Only in such cases where this natural balance is off we see infections occurring.
A reason for such a “disturbance” and a BV occurance could be overdoing it with scented body washes, douches, washes and baths which contain certain chemicals, just to name a few examples.
Using antibiotics may well treat the symptoms, all right, but it is hardly ideal in helping to restore the so important and healthy vaginal balance which prevents the infections in the first place.
As a result, we see a big number of recurrence seen if the Bacterial Vaginosis is solely treated this way. The other problem is that the harmful bacteria might develop a resistance at some point if treated with antibiotics over and over. Potential side effects not even taken into account.
For that reason, we urge that females who suffer from bacterial vaginosis should look into those alternative options. There are actually many such natural bacterial vaginosis treatments around, some surprisingly effective and surprisingly simple to apply.
Let’s talk about the obvious benefits of natural BV treatments:
*) Natural methods will support and restore the natural, beneficial vaginal balance
*) There is either none or only very little risk of recurrence of infection which we otherwise see due to simply treating symptoms instead of the underlying cause.
*) Bacteria will not develop resistance over time
*) No potentially harmful side effects
If you suffer from BV, such natural bacterial vaginosis treatments might be just the solution for you.
