Herbal Treatment of Bacterial Vaginosis – Causes, Symptoms, Complication & Precautions


Hello welcome to Dr. Vikram Chauhan’s Youtube channel. Today we will discuss the topic of bacterial vaginosis. We are a team of doctors from Planet Ayurveda. We want to share with you that, how Dr. Chauhan treat his patients of bacterial vaginosis at OPD. This will help those who cannot visit him at his centre. Bacterial vaginosis or vaginal bacteriosis is a bacterial infection of vagina and it is very common infection. It happens due to the over growth of bacteria inside the vagina which cause inflammation there and it is called bacterial vaginosis. Bacteria are found naturally inside the vagina which cause no harm if they are in there limited count. Their over growth happens due to the imbalance in pH level of vagina which causes bacterial vaginosis, that causes inflammation. Chances of occurring bacterial vaginosis are higher in reproductive age, from puberty to menopause. It can occur in any age but chances of occurring in reproductive age are more. If we see what are the risk factors of having bacterial vaginosis, so they are multiple sexual partners, not maintaining hygiene, and not using cotton clothes, using intra uterine contraceptive devices, consuming alcohol and smoking in excess which cause imbalance in pH level, so all these will be risk factors for bacterial vaginosis. Sometimes signs and symptoms are also different and some women, they even don’t know if they bacterial vaginosis. In some women, there are no symptoms, but in severe form, it shows symptoms like leucorrhea, yellowish discharge, and during menstruation heavy bleeding occurs, there will be foul smell from the greenish discharge and this foul smell is more after sexual intercourse. There will be burning during urination and pain in lower abdomen. I also want add to this that there will be itching too. Sometime due to infection patient can have fever and weakness too. So all these signs and symptoms are found in bacterial vaginosis patient. Now we will discuss some ayurvedic aspect also about bacterial vaginosis. So what Ayurveda tell about bacterial vaginosis is that when Kapha dosha in our body gets vitiated due to which pH level gets imbalanced that leads to bacterial vaginosis. So here when Kapha vitiates and Vata also in different channels, leads to increased growth of bacteria there. So how we will diagnose it, so when there are not any signs and symptoms then usually patient doesn’t consult a doctor. But when burning sensation in urine and excess itching start occurring then they consult the doctor. Even some time due to shyness some females don’t go to doctor and even can’t discuss their problem with family members. Due to shyness females don’t discuss it and if it is ignored then it can lead to many types of complications. Complications like tubal infertility, endometriosis, and further infection can reach to pelvic region and can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). So these complications can occur if patient is not treated properly. How will this be diagnosed, for that doctor will do your proper physical examination and history will be taken through which diagnosis will be made. So patient’s menstrual history is asked about pain, bleeding patterns, or white discharge is there, or not, is there any smell or not. So all these things are asked and the diagnosis is made. Its treatment in allopathy is done through antibiotics which in long run have many side effects. So doctor please tell how can Planet Ayurveda help in bacterial vaginosis. In it we use pradarantak churna, which is mostly used by Dr. Chauhan, not only in this problem but in any issue related to female reproductive organs it works as a blood purifier. And there is proper care pack for bacterial vaginosis with name BV Care Pack. It contains Neem capsules, Pradarantak churna, Nirgundi oil, and Gandhak Rasayana. As everybody knows that Neem contains lots of properties like anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and our Planet Ayurveda Capsules contain extracts which are more effective than raw form of it. Like this our nirgundi oil also which has many anti-inflammatory properties and also acts as analgesic too and relieves swelling and redness, and in daily life style try to use cotton clothes only, also take care of food habits. Drink lots of water, and take turmeric powder mixed with milk in night. Yes, turmeric has many benefits and it will help in curing the inflammation and removes the infection. Other than this garlic is also very useful due to its anti-microbial qualities. 1-2 cloves of garlic daily are also useful in this condition and in diet patient has to take special care like avoid spicy food, fatty food should be avoided. Patient should take juices especially cranberry juice which is very helpful in this type of infection. So if patient takes care of all these things and also takes BV Care Pack will give relief to patient at earliest. Thank you.
