Hey there, logically it would seem to be a pretty bad idea to put a dairy product in a warm, dark, wet place. I'm pretty sure you're just supposed to eat it. It does promote good vaginal health and is most helpful for yeast infections, not bacterial vaginosis.

Clean your hands and toys before play and be sure to keep anything that has been inserted anally from entering your vagina before you've cleansed the item (fingers, toys, penis).

If you use tampons, consider switching to repHresh tampons and avoid using an absorbancy level above your needs - don't use a super plus tampon when a regular tampon will do.

All of that should keep reinfection to a minimum, however BV is quite common and has no discernable cause. Any woman can get it at any point in her life if she is sexually active.

thank you Ansley. I have read that yogurt is a good practice to maintain the pH and bacterial balance within the vagina and i've read that it does work. i was just wondering about any home remedies for treating bacterial vaginosis because i would like to not have to get a prescription if i ever get the infection again. i have some toys that i have used prior to be treated for the infection i wonder if i could reinfect myself if i used them again. i'm just being very careful because i don't want the infection to come back, but your feedback ws very helpful.

You're very welcome, always happy to help.

If any of the toys you used before you were diagnosed are made of rubber, jelly, latex, cyberskin, TPR or UR3 you should either toss them or use condoms with them from now on (especially rubber and jelly).

BV is the cruelest joke nature can play on a woman. Been there, done that soo many times.

I had a yeast infection recently. I put yogurt on a tampon and froze it, then inserted it once it'd hardened. It felt pretty good, actually, after I got over the "Oh god it's cold!" part. I didn't feel any worsening of the condition, but I only did it once b/c it was too late to get medication for my yeast infection. I bought some regular medication the next day. Oh, and the yogurt I used was Greek yogurt. I wouldn't recommend using a fruity/sweetened yogurt. Plain or Greek yogurt seems better to me b/c of the lower amounts of sugar in it.

I've never put it down there, but when I used to get them a lot when I was little, I was told to eat a lot of yogurt. And it really helped. I don't know about putting it inside, but if it was plain it shouldn't be a problem.

It works for yeast infections because the bacteria in yogurt eats the yeast. However, if you put yogurt on a bacterial infection, you'll probably end up with a lot of bacteria. The yogurt has "good" bacteria in it. I've tried it, and my vagina was able to clean itself out well enough that the dairy thing wasn't an issue (it didn't smell like sour milk, that would be horrible). I found that it relieved the symptoms of a yeast infection for about 12 hours but didn't cure it.

I found it was hard to get the yogurt in. You basically have to wash your hands, then dip your fingers in yogurt and insert them. Do this before bed and wear a maxi pad, as your vagina will be flushing out the yogurt and dead yeast.

You'd think it would be a good idea. But, the amount of probiotics in a cup of yogurt is negligible.

Also, even if you don't use flavored (which would be bad, because the sugar would increase the risk of infection) you are still putting cow dairy products into your vagina, which many people believe isn't healthy for the human body and may cause problems.

Also, probiotics help with FUNGAL infections, bacterial infections usually require anti-biotics. Make sure a doctor diagnoses you, and make sure your hands, your toys and your partners are clean, and keep food out of your vagina.

The best way to ward off bacterial infections is to keep the vagina and anything that goes into it clean and to eat properly and take care of yourself. Still, some people are susceptible to them, in which case your best bet is a doctor's visit.

I'd clean toys that can be cleaned with a 10% bleach solution with that, toss any jelly, latex, etc. I have actually used 10% bleach solution on TPR silicone toys with no ill effect. It's also fine for 100% silicone, glass, metal and other non-porous materials. If you have non-electric toys that can be boiled, do that.

I've heard of it but I don't think it's safe. Eat the yogurt, drink cranberry juice, and cotton underwear should all help. Also urinating before and after intercourse or toy usage helps flush things out too. Good luck!

Ive eaten it. IT needs to be plain no flavor yogurt that has active bacteria. My best friend had put in on a cotton lining in her underwear and it really helped with the swelling and discomfort. I would not insert it, but yes I have heard f it and know people who do it.

eating it is good for you. Inserting, maybe not. The bacterial in yogurt is beneficial to our colon and stuff and I also heard it is good for vaginal bacterial (the good stuff). It balances it and i think because its acidic, it helps with tha vag PH. But im no doctor.

I don't feed yogurt to my vagina, but I eat Greek yogurt and take acidophilus.
