How To Cure Bv For Good
If you suffer regularly from this condition, you may well be wondering how to cure BV for good. You probably ponder as to why you were the one who drew the “short straw”. Many women sail through life with perhaps an isolated outbreak or maybe none at all, whereas others seem to be hit with repeated attacks.
Our bodies are not that different are they?
You have perhaps compared yourself to a friend or sister who don’t seem to have a different lifestyle and yet they don’t have the embarrassing problem of bacterial vaginosis, but the truth is that our bodies do all have subtle differences which although not obvious, are sufficient to make some of us susceptible to bacterial vaginosis and some of us not so. Think about other conditions, why do some of us have acne, or asthma or any number of ailments?
So, accepting that we are simple prone to this condition certainly does not mean that we have to live with it. If you would like to know how to cure BV for good, you need to know a little about the condition itself and the steps you will need to get yourself on a permanent road to recovery.
Firstly, you may be one of the many women who take antibiotics and may feel frustrated why although they initially seem to do the trick, you seem to get repeated outbreaks a few weeks after finishing each course. There is a very good reason why this is the case and it revolves around the nature of bacterial vaginosis.
Bacterial vaginosis forms as a result of an imbalance within the vagina. Under normal circumstances, the vagina is self-cleansing and is rich in slightly acidic, beneficial bacteria which aid this process. When the balance is upset, conditions become alkaline and this encourages the growth of harmful bacteria which results in the typical unpleasant symptoms which include a foul, fishy smelling vaginal discharge which is usually gray or white in color, together with irritation or itching of the sensitive vaginal tissues.
There are several facets to successful treatment and all are important if you want to get rid of bacterial vaginosis for good. If you do not follow each step through, then repeated outbreaks are almost guaranteed.
* The killing of harmful bacteria
* The strengthening of the immune system
* Symptomatic relief
* Replenishment of beneficial bacteria
* A close examination of the possible root causes and subsequent elimination
Looking at the antibiotic question, their role is to kill off bacteria. They cannot deal with any other aspects of treatment and so although they do usually give some relief, their usefulness is limited and as the root cause is not dealt with and nor can antibiotics help to replenish the levels of good bacteria.
The important thing for women learning how to cure BV for good is to understand that a multifaceted approach is required. There is no one treatment which will ensure that it does not come back, but you must learn simple, longer term strategies which will need to be implemented for life. Although not difficult, the triggers can be different for many women, (i.e what causes BV in one woman may not be the cause in another) and this means that you need to discover your own personal trigger points and then after eliminating these, use a range of simple, natural ways to ensure that your body becomes a BV-free zone.
