Will azithromycin 250mg tablets- take 2 tablets today then 1 tablet daily for 4 days cure bacterial vaginosis even though its only a 5 day treatment?
Vaginosis: The answer is "yes." Azithromycin is an antibiotic. An inevitable side effect any time you take an antibiotic is that you kill off some of the normal bacteria in your system, and they get replaced, at least temporarily, by abnormal bacteria. The cause of bacterial vaginosis is a germ called garderella, which gets a chance to grow in large numbers and cause a symptomatic infection after antibiotics. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

See answer: Although BV will sometimes clear up without treatment, all women with symptoms of BV should be treated to avoid complications. Male partners generally do not need to be treated. Recommended regimens: *metronidazole 500 mg PO bid x 7 days; or *metronidazole gel 0.75%, one full applicator (5 g) intravaginally, once daily x 5 days; or *clindamycin cream 2%, one full applicator (5 g) daily x 7 days.

If you have heavy or long menses taking ocp's to shorten them or getting an ablation may help. Avoid tampons, use only presservative free cotton pads, and use cotton underwear exclusively. You may have to try several different probiotics before the right one for you. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
