How to kill bacteria vaginitis in your underwear?

What is the best way to get rid of the bacteria in your underwear? Should I boil them in hot water, use a hot iron to kill the bacteria, or what?

Toss a cup of bleach in with your wash. Bleach kills everything. Just be sure to mix it with some water first, and wait til the washing machine fills up with water before you pour it in.  (+ info)

How long does it take to cure Bacterial vaginitis using Yogurt?

Would love to know how long it'd take :)
I dont have the money for the docs

It doesn't cure a bacterial infection. It's more of a way to prevent a bacterial infection by eating lots of plain yogurt or taking probiotics, but not a cure.

Go to Planned Parenthood if you don't have insurance or money.  (+ info)

I've been to my gyno for this problem, but all he has perscribed to me is a cream, which hasnt worked. I saw an ad for enzara and i was wondering if anybody with my same problem has used this product and has seen results. And is there anything else, even alternative medicines or doctors, that works that somebody reccomends?

I was given medication to take (orally) for 7 days .(. metronidazole) I have had no problems since.

Candida or "yeast" vaginitis

What can cause bacterial vaginitis in a woman who has not been sexually acitve for a long period of time?

I have a bacterial infection, but have not had sexual contact in months. Can this be cause by not wiping properly after going to the bathroom?

Bacterial vaginosis is a mild infection in the vagina caused by a type of bacteria (germ). The vagina normally contains a lot of "good" bacteria, called lactobacilli, and a few other types of bacteria, called anaerobes. Too many anaerobes can cause bacterial vaginosis. We don't know why the anaerobe bacteria overgrow and cause this infection.
Bacterial vaginosis is an overgrowth of bacteria that are normally in the vagina. While it's more common in women who are sexually active, it also occurs in women who are not sexually active. It's not usually necessary for your sex partner to be treated.
E. coli which is a normal inhabitant of the rectum can cause bacterial vaginitis if it is spread to the vaginal area. Other factors which may contribute include hot weather, poor health, poor hygiene, use of an intrauterine device (IUD) for birth control, and routine vaginal douching.  (+ info)

Is pelvic fullness and discomfort also a sign of Vaginitis?

I have the burning and soreness of the vagina and vulva, but I also have a sense of pelvic discomfort and fullness.

It could be that or Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. I would go see your gynecologist ASAP.  (+ info)

If my girlfriend has Vaginitis; does this mean shes pregnant?

We think she might be pregnant, but she also has symptoms of having Vaginitis. Could that be cause shes pregnant or something else?

you can get vaginitis while your not pregnant, like you touching her with dirty hands, wiping from back to front, not changing underwaer enough. but if she is pregnant she could have it just because she is pregnant. but because she has it doesnt mean that she is pregnant  (+ info)

16 weeks pregnant with a low lying placenta, and was told that i have bactirial vaginitis, but another doctor ?

said i had a yeast infection as well. the yeast infection cleared up, but the vaginitis doesn't seem to be clearing up. is there any risks to the baby with a low lying placenta if it doesn't go away? i read somewhere that it can cause bleeding and cramping really bad and even pre term labor and birth. is this true? anyone else dealt with this before? should i be worried?

A low lying placenta usually corrects itself. As for the bacterial vaginosis, what did they treat it with? I had BV a year ago and was giving antibiotics and that was it gone, never had it since. According to the doctors i got BV from having thrush for too long untreated. I got rid of the thrush with cream and a pessary then took 4 antibiotics in a winner and the next day it was gone.

The BV will go away, it might just need stronger antibiotics, if the low lying placenta doesn't go away you'll be ordered to rest more and will have a closer eye kept on you.  (+ info)

How to treat irritant vaginitis?

How do you treat irritant vaginitis? There's no infection or any bacteria. It is caused by an abrasion.

Keep yourself clean. A large cause of infections happen simply because sweat or oils built up until there was nothing for it to do except fester and form an infection. Never fun. So bathe and shower regularly, and try and keep "down there" as clean as possible. Good luck  (+ info)

How do you get rid of Bacterial Vaginitis?


I have taken oral antibiotics as well as vaginal suppositories and cannot shake the bacterial vaginosis. Does anyone know if it has anything to do with being with an uncircumcized partner?


You can use Boric Acid to treat BV. Sometimes when anti-biotics don't work, you may need to re-acidify your vagina. Vaginas are slightly (very slightly) acidic to begin with so your pH may be off, resulting in the BV coming back. I have linked below directions on finding and using boric acid to treat BV. It works on Yeast Infections too! Ask your doctor if your partner needs to be treated too. You may just be passing it back and forth.  (+ info)
