We show that the implementation of the 1/c² transverse current-current interaction between elec- trons into the standard self-consistent electron BCS model in bulk under thermal equilibrium in the stable superconductive phase ensures the full compensation of a constant external magnetic field by the internal magnetic field created by the electrons.
