what are some natural remedies for treating bacteria vaginosis?

Boric acid: Not great data suggests boric acid in a gel cap from your compounding pharmacist inserted daily for one month, then as needed. It's usually a reaction to lubricants, soaps, chlorine from a pool or hit tub, or even semen! avoiding any chemicals there, especially dial and irish spring are really helpful.
