Also, burning while urinating is common with this infection. Some women however, do not experience any of these signs. However, there are some natural treatments for bacterial vaginal infection symptoms you can try from home.
At home remedies for a vaginal infection have been used for many of years but there are no scientific studies to insure that they 100% will cure this infection. If you are wanting to try some natural treatments before going to your doctor and paying for antibiotics here is a list for some treatments you may like to try.
1. Vinegar douches: Some women may try to use douching to clean the bacteria out but, be careful with this method. Douching can sometimes cause the healthy bacteria in the lining of the vagina to be removed. By giving this method a try, you could make the infection worse.
2. Yogurt: Yogurt can act as a medium for the good bacteria to thrive on. So, eating yogurt can help prevent you from getting a vaginal infection. There are also other uses for yogurt if you already have a infection. You could insert the yogurt inside your vagina, use plain yogurt, with a tampon.
3. Apple Cider Vinegar: You can pour about 2 cups of the cider into your bath water and soak in the water for about twenty minutes. The vinegar will help to fight off the toxins that cause the infection.
