If I take a bath in apple cider vinegar (diluted) after he ejaculates in me does this cut the chances of bv?

If I take a bath in apple cider vinegar (diluted) after he ejaculates in me does this cut the chances of bv?

No: Bv is naturally in your vagina, along with "yeast." when one or the other gets off balance, the other will 'over grow'. People think of BV and yeast as infections, but they are really just overgrowth of something normal. The fishy smell after intercourse (sex) is as much the semen as it is you. Use condoms to help with that and for safer sex! If you need treatment for bv, see a doctor 1st. ...Read more

I've heard that using an Apple cider vinegar soak is good to help cure yeast infection. Soaking a cloth and laying over vaginal walls, is this true?

I've heard that using an Apple cider vinegar soak is good to help cure yeast infection. Soaking a cloth and laying over vaginal walls, is this true?

Don't do it: This won't do any good at all and could be irritating and make yeast symptoms worse. Vaginal yeast infections need medical treatment. There are excellent over-the-counter drugs, including single dose oral fluconazole (Diflucan), or any of several vaginal creams -- look for active ingredient ending in "azole". If any doubt about the diagnosis, or if OTC treatment doesn't work, see a doctor. ...Read more

I think I have bacterial vaginosis went to the doctor to get medicine but infection came back it seems like nothing is working. So now I soak in apple cider vinegar for 30 mins hopefully it works.?

BV returns: Bacterial vaginosis recurs in most patients who are treated. It could be because your sexual partner (s) are carriers, or a re-infection with your own vagial flora that was not completely wiped out. There are several different medications for BV, some pills, some gels/creams. If one did not work, maybe try another. Douches are an alternative, but frequently cause UTI or worsening of BV. ...Read more

Will Heinz apple cider vinegar work like brAggs apple cider vinegar?

Will Heinz apple cider vinegar work like brAggs apple cider vinegar?

Not entirely but...: Bragg's is raw/unpasteurized whereas I'm fairly sure Heinz is pasteurized. Pasteurization degrades some nutrients and enzymes that are beneficial. Also, Bragg's is organic whereas Heinz is not, and apples are in the EWG "Dirty Dozen" and high in pesticide residues.
Heinz should have many of the same benefits but, given a choice, I recommend Bragg's. ...Read more
