Limit number of sex: Limit the number of sexual partners. Do not use vaginal douches.Use all medicines full course for treating bacterial vaginosis.Not having sex or being abstinent is the best way to prevent bacterial vaginal infections but is not practical.So live a monogamous life and do not use vaginal douches.Be sure to eat healthy food and meals everyday.Avoid sugary foods, soya sauce, cheese, chocolate, soda&alcoh.
