- Bad vag can be caused by quite a number of different bacteria, with the main offenders being those involved in STIs, bacterial vaginosis (BV) and aerobic vaginitis (AV).
- These bacteria can change the pH in the vagina, and cause the proliferation of bad bacteria. This results in the fishy smell and discharge.
- The treatment aims to remove the biofilm and replace it with a healthy Lactobacillus biofilm. This needs to be done with a program to repopulate not only the vagina, but the whole gut. The problem almost always originates in the gut and the gut and vagina share many microbes.
- Antibiotics don’t have a very good long-term effect on BV, and the three-month resolution rate is abysmal. It does work sometimes.
- Read the Killing BV eBook prior to treatment with antibiotics because antibiotics also kill off the good bacteria, which you need to recreate the biofilm.
- Antibiotics can be an excellent adjunct to the treatment program.
- Bad vag can start in the gut, and can be triggered by poor health, low immunity and other triggers.
- The bacteria live there naturally in many women, but do not become pathogenic because they do not have the chance.
- This is a microbe problem, not a vagina problem. It is most definitely fixable with a bit of focused effort.
