Bacterial Vaginosis and hydrogen peroxide

Hi there,

I have bacterial vaginosis (due to Gardnerella) since my puberty started and I read some posts and research about hydrogen peroxide 3% that should help. It said that I should look at the drugsstore, but I don't know where to look? I thought it should be with the cleaning liquids and such, but I looked there and couldn't find it. What is it used for normally then? Don't they sell in the Netherlands? And isn't it the same as the 3% hydrogen peroxide you use to bleach your hair a little? If so, I suppose I can order that from a hairdressercompany or something.

It's too bad because until now I have never really had a boyfriend and it looks like I'm in the start of a relationship; and I just feel very ashamed of it and I need to tell him sometime. + it will probably only worsen because when putting fingers or penises, doesn't matter if it's with a condom or clean in my vagina, it seems to stimulate the Gardenerella bacteria. And it's starting to get summer here so I want to wear skirts and such but sometimes you can smell the vaginisosthing.

I'm somewhat low spirited indeed...tried so many things that didn't work...actually just wanted to ask the question about the peroxide.

It's usually in the aisle with the band-aids, ointments creams for burns, scraps, and cuts. Next to the alcohol, idione, for cuts and scraps.

Re: Bacterial Vaginosis and hydrogen peroxide

Yes and most peroxide ive seen is usually in a brown bottle. So look for that. And if you still cant find it after what we have said ask an employee..dont be embarassed they will have no clue what you are really using it for.
