5 Natural Treatments For Bacterial Vaginosis In Pregnancy

Bacterial Vaginosis In Pregnancy

Bacterial Vaginosis is one of the common vaginal infections that affect women in the childbearing age. The infection is caused by an imbalance of bad and good bacteria present in the vaginal area. The presence of good bacteria is more in number and keeps a check on the growth of bad bacteria. Bacterial Vaginosis In Pregnancy

An infection occurs when the presence of good bacteria is less leading to an uncontrolled growth of bad bacteria. However, bacterial vaginosis is not a sexually transmitted disease.

Getting a BV in pregnancy may result in premature birth, low-birth-weight baby and an infection in the uterine after a delivery. Doctors may prescribe the usage of antibiotics in case of chronic or severe cases of BV. Since antibiotics act fast, the symptoms may reappear after few weeks.

Therefore, a natural cure to bacterial vaginosis is considered safer and more effective. Natural cures never cause any side effects. Before starting a natural treatment of BV, it is recommended to get a diagnosis to make sure that you have only BV and not any other infection.

Natural Treatment For Bacterial Vaginosis In Pregnancy

Tea Tree Oil

One of the common symptoms of BV is presence of an unpleasant smell in the vagina. Tea tree oil is a great natural cure to get rid of this smell. Add few drops of tea tree oil in your bath tub and immerse yourself for twenty minutes.
Alternatively, dip a tampon (it’s a tube made of cotton wool) into the oil and gently insert it into your vagina. You may feel a burning sensation; so, dilute it with little water. Tea tree oil has antibacterial properties that help to kill the bacteria responsible for BV as well as the smell associated with it.

Cranberry Juice

Drink pure cranberry juice at least two cups a day.  Fresh cranberries possess antibiotic properties that fight off the infection. Avoid drinking cranberry cocktail, and drink fresh juice without sugar. Drinking cranberry juice is also very beneficial in pregnancy.


Apple Cider Vinegar

Add one to two cups of apple cider vinegar in your bath tub. Soak yourself for 15 to 20 minutes. Apple cider vinegar contains both antifungal and antibacterial properties that help to eliminate the fishy odor and combat BV effectively in pregnancy.

Tea Bag

Place a tea bag in tepid water for 5 minutes. Then cool it quickly by placing in the freezer. Once it is cool, place the tea bag on the external genitals. This remedy helps to soothe itching that may result from bacterial vaginosis during pregnancy.

This is the best natural cure for bacterial vaginosis in pregnancy. Certain types of yoghurt contain healthy bacteria that prevent uncontrolled growth of bad bacteria in the vagina. Yoghurt can be used in two ways – you can eat yoghurt (8 ounces or 2 cups) of any flavor regularly, or secondly you can dip a tampon in the yoghurt and then gently insert it into the vagina directly.

Keep it for one hour and then wash off. Scientific studies have revealed that yoghurt, if used this way, effectively treats bacterial vaginosis during pregnancy. However, in the long run eating helps.


Tip To Follow

Avoid wearing tight undergarments totally. Wearing loose undergarments help to prevent the infection at the initial stages. Also, wash your undergarments in hot water to make it bacteria free and prevent the BV infection from spreading.

    I might trust this more if you hadn’t misspelled ‘yogurt’.. would appreciate some reference material (the studies you talked about that have been done on) before inserting a ‘yogurt tampon’ into my vagina. I understand that the bacteria cultures found in yogurt are good for keeping the ‘stomach bacteria’ balanced, but have never heard of using in vagina. As the stomach and vagina have different ‘good bacteria’ from one another. Would hope that anyone reading this would take the time to actually research this further before trying and inserting ANY foreign substance into their vagina while pregnant, even douching to treat Bacterial Vaginosis is considered to be unsafe during pregnancy.
