AT HOME

  1. No douching
  2. Perfume free detergent, fabric softener
  3. No Perfumed and antibacterial body wash /soaps!
  4. Limit wearing nylon underwear/tight yoga pants – can block air movement = increased bacteria growth.
  5. Change underwear or panty liner several times a day
  6. Change out of wet clothing quickly: sweating, swimsuits
  7. Install a bidet on your toilet (Amazon = $50)
  8. Use a hair dryer (if bidet doesn’t have one) to dry off privates after using bathroom
  9. Lube that hasn’t expired
  10. Lube that dispenses without touching your finger tips
  11. Limit the amount of sperm in your vagina
  12. Condoms only you and your partner have tested as a no trigger
  13. Abstain from sex if you have BV.  You and your partner will continue to pass it back and forth. Can temporarily live in the urethra.
  14. Boric Acid Suppositories – seem to help with staying fresh New evidence suggests this is controversial, so you should consult with your OBGYN.
  15. Drink more water!
  16. Probiotics: Lola
  17. Good Clean Love:  BiopHresh Homeopathic Vaginal Suppository
  18. Try Lume Deodorant: aluminum, baking soda and paraben free. Goes anywhere bacteria loves to live.
  19. Hormone changes (estrogen): birth control, aging = dryness, estrogen is a lubricator.  Consider HRT if your endocrinologist agrees.
