Hydrogen peroxide sprays can help treat bacterial vaginosis in some cases, but higher concentrations can help with chronic BV, aerobic vaginitis, and other dysbiotic conditions. See Killing BV.
Most of you know that hydrogen peroxide does not cure BV, but it can temporarily relieve symptoms.
Since hydrogen peroxide is used as a disinfectant, its use in BV is limited to this function – it kills plankton (free-floating) bacteria in the vaginal canal, which temporarily removes odors and secretions, but does not kill them. bacterial biofilms left behind by pathogens.
Bacterial biofilms in BV
A bacterial biofilm is a sticky, thick, impenetrable coating on the cells of your vagina that prevents colonization by beneficial bacteria.
This makes your vagina resistant to friendly lactobacilli, and the biofilm becomes resistant to antibiotics. This is why BV “comes back” – it never goes away.
Eliminates odors and secretions
Hydrogen peroxide can be used to remove odors and is very effective, so it should be used with caution and in doses strong enough for sex. 6% hydrogen peroxide can eliminate odors for at least 24 hours, depending on your condition and condition.
The smell can last for weeks or until something else destroys your vagina, like menstrual blood or semen (both of which change the pH and allow odor-causing bacteria to grow). It is also possible to re-infect with pathogenic bacteria from sexual partners.
How to use hydrogen peroxide
Use enough for one shower – 100-200 ml.
Aim for 6 percent strength (3 percent not strong enough, 9 percent too strong)
Some hissing and burning is normal, and hydrogen peroxide with raw protein (doesn’t kill bacteria!)
If you have a bad reaction, stop using hydrogen peroxide.
