Bacterial vaginosis: Despite the effective treatments for bacterial vaginosis, recurrence of symptoms within three to six months is common. If your symptoms recur soon after treatment, make an appointment with your doctor to discuss treatment options, one of which is extended-use Metronidazole therapy. Eating certain types of yogurt or other foods containing lactobacilli can be helpful for some.
