Green Tea for HPV

I was wondering if green tea helps with hpv and can it be inserted intra vagina?

I insert green tea capsules in my vagina. Green tea helps with HPV. I alternate those with curcumin capsules. One day green, the next day curcumin.

I have read posts about mixing the contents of the green capsule with virgin coconut oil, freezing the mixture and inserting as a suppository. @WantToClear95 - are you saying you insert the capsule itself? If so, is there a therapeutic benefit of doing it one way or the other? I am one week post cone biopsy and am considering suppository treatment vs the HPV in a few weeks. I know the month regimen with Green Tea/Curcumin. How often do you do this treatment? eg, one month on, one month off. I am a newlywed and can't help but ask, how does this affect intimacy?!? Thanks!

I'm not sure how this would affect intimacy. I myself am being celibate. I insert one capsules at night, alternating green and curcumin from one day to the next. I just started doing it. I insert the capsules themselves. This is something new I'm trying. I will see if it works.

I guess you could be intimate before you insert a capsule.

I was more curious about the days after inserting the capsule. I am sure I read somewhere here that others experienced discharge for up to 5 days for the capsule contents to clear. Has this been your experience? Thanks for your response!

I experience a lot of discharge in the days that follow insertion.

I am the 5 dayer! Takes 5 days for the capsule to naturally clear from the vagina. I insert on Sunday night, and Friday, it comes out. Usually quite gummy/papery too. Sometimes I wonder if the green tea is actually making contact or if it is getting caught up in the gummy substance (which I think...is...the capsule part??) not really sure!

@antiviral would love your thoughts on this!

Well daenerys, if you are worried about the capsule cover you could just empty out the powder contents and make your own suppository. I personally found no difference as I believe your body melts the capsule quite well.
