Water alone is best: Be sure you formally see ypue doctor if you have worsening UTI symptoms as this will need treatment to avoid a kidney infection or spread of bacteria to the blood stream. For OTC remedies, try AZO for pain that occurs with urination. Cranberry tablets are good as well due to a component of the fruit that makes it more difficult for bacteria to take hold in your urinary tract. Keep the water plain! ...Read more

Don't do it: This won't do any good at all and could be irritating and make yeast symptoms worse. Vaginal yeast infections need medical treatment. There are excellent over-the-counter drugs, including single dose oral fluconazole (Diflucan), or any of several vaginal creams -- look for active ingredient ending in "azole". If any doubt about the diagnosis, or if OTC treatment doesn't work, see a doctor. ...Read more

BV returns: Bacterial vaginosis recurs in most patients who are treated. It could be because your sexual partner (s) are carriers, or a re-infection with your own vagial flora that was not completely wiped out.

Douches are an alternative, but frequently cause UTI or worsening of BV. ...Read more

Many possibilities: But the most likely are simply breakthrough bleeding or irritation/trauma from your vinegar treatment.

They tend to disrupt your natural defenses and create more problems than they solve. There are specific BV treatments. Get checked. ...Read more
