A 31-year-old female asked:
can you get rid of bacterial vaginosis on your own with home remedies? or do you have to get a prescription antibiotic?

Possibly: Since bacterial vaginosis is not technically an infection (which is why it is called a vaginosis rather than a vaginitis) but an overgrowth of particular types of bacteria, the goal is really to promote the growth of the normal preferred lactobacilli. Any home remedy should involve taking some version of probiotic to try to accomplish this.
