Can you apply Dannon plain yogurt to the vaginal area to treat BV?

There are two ways to use plain yogurt as a treatment for bacterial vaginosis – orally and vaginally. Eating at least 8 ounces of plain yogurt daily will help restore the natural balance of bacteria in your system. Secondly, you can apply the yogurt directly to your vaginal walls using an applicator or small spoon.

It is suggested to follow this approach at bedtime and wear non-deodorized pads to reduce the messiness and protect your undergarments. Both approaches should be continued for at least 7 days. When using yogurt to treat BV, only plain yogurt with live lactobacillus acidophilus is effective for this method.

Do not choose flavored or sugar-filled yogurts. The yogurt will stop the growth of harmful bacteria and boost the immune system.
