Bacterial vaginosis: Yes, there are rx cures for it. Go see your primary care doctor or gynecologist.

Not necessarily: Bacterial vaginosis is very dificult to correct once someone has the infection. It is an acute or chronic discord of the natural bacteria in the vagina. Once the process gets established it can be difficult to revert. Taking the prescribed antibiotics followed by strong probiotics to replenish the oxygen loving bacteria in the vagina is helpful and if taken long enough can work.

Vaginosis: Your condition is an overgrowth of normal vaginal bacteria. It means your immune system is low, not enough to keep normal bacteria in check. Avoid sugar, artificial sweeteners, stress and anything that can decrease your immune system. Antiibiotics may me necessary and if repetitive, have your partner checked and possibly, treated.
