Dr. Jeff Livingston answered
22 years experience Obstetrics and Gynecology
Gynecologist: It sounds like you have been seen and diagnosed by a gynecologist. That doctor is in the best position to provide treatment options as they have done and examination and testing. Lactobacillus is a normal component of the vaginal flora and does not need to be eradicated. Clarify with the doctor who did the recent exam the diagnosis and treatment plan
