Yogurt or Luvena: I had a patient who swore by using plain unsweetened yogurt on an OB tampon placed into the vagina. I know it sounds messy, right? But she swore it cured her bv. You can try a more simple product, luvena, which is over the counter and is basically lactobaccili that you put in the vagina as a suppository to hope to reestablish the predominance of this 'good' bacteria in the vagina. Good luck!
