Natural Remedies for Vaginosis
Choose Organic Lube for Vaginosis
Often mistaken for a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis is a common and serious side effect which stems from an imbalance of naturally acidic vaginal pH levels. It is triggered by chronic dryness or in combination with other causes. If a lack of normal lubrication imbalances the vaginal pH, bacteria can get unbalanced, with bad bacteria becoming dominant, getting into the tissues and causing inflammation.
Therefore, the best vaginosis treatment is prevention through addressing vaginal dryness before it escalates. Using YES organic lube for vaginosis alongside a holistic approach to look at underlying symptoms is the best approach. Other lubricants often contain unwanted chemicals and skin irritants. Besides, glycerine (added to most leading brands) dehydrates and irritates mucosa – not what you want for already-infected tissues which have become unhealthy due to dryness in the first place!
Bacterial vaginosis is known to increase the risk of STIs including AIDS due to a lack of the usual acidic protection of the vaginal flora. It is also a pregnancy-related risk factor, increasing the risk of prematurity, low birth weight, post-partum endometriosis and miscarriage .
