Stop Douching! This Is What Causes Your V-A-G-I-N-A-L To Smell, Check Out What To Do
If you are having trouble with the smell coming from your vagina, then this article is for you. I will try and help you understand the root of the problem and I will discuss what you can do about it. So read carefully to the end.
The first thing you need to know about what causes of vaginal odor is bacterial vaginosis. Bacterial vaginosis is caused by a very small group of bacteria that live in your vagina, on your skin and in the air. When these bacteria start to multiply they cause an infection.
In order to get rid of this infection, you need to remove all of the bad bacteria and replace them with good bacteria. This is when the main cause of vaginal odor comes into play. Your vagina cannot naturally eliminate the bad bacteria, so you have to use a topical antibiotic which kills the bad bacteria and leaves you with the good one.
Most people think that if they use a topical antibiotic for long enough then it will kill off the bad bacteria. However, the problem with this method is that it only works to kill off the bad bacteria. In fact, there is a study that shows that over half of women with bacterial vaginosis actually end up with a repeat attack in a few months. This is because the bacteria has somehow managed to grow back in their system and now produce bad smelling gases.
The most natural method is to use a natural yoghurt as soon as possible. There are many natural yoghurt supplements available online but the best ones I have found are Kefir and Acidophilus. These are the two most effective natural yoghurt alternatives available and I highly recommend you try some out.
If you want to use natural yoghurt as a way of solving the main cause of vaginal odor then it's important that you choose a brand that does not have any added sweeteners. These sweeteners will cause the acidic levels in the vagina to go down and when this happens you will start to notice that you have a vaginal infection. You will notice that your symptoms will become weaker and you may also start to experience bleeding.
Yoghurt can help you to cure bacterial vaginosis very easily. One way to get the best results is to add the yoghurt into a douche which you can buy at your local supermarket. This will prevent you from buying any expensive antibacterial tablets.
Bacterial vaginosis is not the only cause of vaginal odor so you should not be concerned if you have this condition. Other causes include a hormonal imbalance in your body such as during pregnancy. and menopause for some women.
If you think that you have a yeast infection then you may be tempted to use certain anti-fungal creams. However, they will only mask the symptoms. Instead of solving the root cause of the problem you will only be getting rid of the symptoms. There is also another treatment called Vicks VapoRub which is a very popular home remedy for vaginal odor that you can use with ease.
There is also tea tree oil that can help to cure bacterial vaginosis. in a very safe and gentle way without causing any side effects. This oil is also very effective against yeast infections and will get rid of your bad odor pretty quickly. Tea tree oil is also quite good at treating infections as it is antibacterial and anti-fungal.
There are also many natural remedies such as eating more yogurt. Also drinking lots of water, taking a warm bath and drinking cranberry juice.
There is no one cause of bacterial vaginosis. However, when you find out the cause you will know how to treat it effectively and in the long term.
