D Mannose Treat Bacterial Vaginosis
Antibiotics: Usually we use Flagyl 500mg twice daily for 5 days. Http://www. Cascadewomenshealth. Org/download/pdfs/healtheducation/management%20of%20vaginal%20and%20vulvar%20infections%20and%20discomfort/bacterial%20vaginosis. Pdf.
Check up: Bv usually needs to be treated by prescription antibiotics. If you have frequent recurrences, talk to your doctor about possible ways to balance your pH and keep the vaginal bacteria in better balance. Some people used over the counter products such as rephresh or luvena. Some physicians use vaginal suppositories containing boric acid, but these need to be made by a compounding pharmacist.See 1 more doctor answer
Not likely: Flagyl is the medication of choice due to very good coverage of anaerobes. Ofloxacine does not cover anaerobes as well as Flagyl does.
Treatment of BV: Bv is usually caused by anaerobic gram negative rods and is usually treated with Metronidazole or clindamycin. Tetracyclines like doxy would not be considered first choice agents. If your doctor thinks you have chlamydia or other infections, it may well be the correct agent. Ask your doctor what your tests and cultures show.
Any time: And the more often the better. Good luck.
How long does it take for clindamycin to begin working when being treated for bacterial vaginosis?
Oral or Vaginal?: Vaginal creams take between 3 to 7 days. Oral antibiotics may take up to 10 days as they are systemic and not local to the vagina.
How many days does it take for clindamycin to start working when being treated for bacterial vaginosis?
About 48 hours: You should feel better within about 48 hours, but please take all of your prescribed medication to clear thje infection.
I had bacterial vaginosis about 4 weeks ago and I think I might be pregnant, can you get pregnant while being treated for it?
Yes: You can get pregnant during BV treatment and should use protection.
Can trich be misdiagnosed? My girlfriend was recently treated for trich. She was treated for bacterial vaginosis a little over a month ago
Of course it can: Fortunately, the treatment for Trichomonas and BV are the same, just different dosing schedule. But she has been treated for both so no worries.
Preferably not: Not for at least a week, while being treated; and preferably for another week after that. If sex is inevitable, for sure use condoms.
Bacterial Vaginosis: Metranidazole is one of the treatments for bv. It decreases the bacterial population of gardnerella vaginalis. Can also use preparations like acid jelly to decrease the vaginal ph making the vaginal environment more hostile to gardnerella proliferation.
Generally not: More BV information here: http://www. Cdc. Gov/std/bv/stdfact-bacterial-vaginosis. Htm.
