If you get a diagnosis and treatment the infections resolve quite quickly. They can be transmitted by sex so get your partner treated too. See your gyn or pcp and do not worry. ...Read more

What causes bacterial vaginitis and how do you treat it?

Let me help: Bv is associated with an imbalance in the bacteria that are normally found in a woman's vagina. The vagina normally contains mostly "good" bacteria, and fewer harmful bacteria. Bv develops when there is an increase in harmful bacteria. Bv is treatable with antibiotics prescribed by a health care provider.

Cervicitis: I have used Doxycycline to treat cervicitis. However vaginitis is often either bacterial vaginosis, which is usually treated with Flagyl or metrogel, and isn't sensitive to doxy. Or another type of bacterial infection which may or may not be sensitive to doxycycline. ...Read more

I've been told that there is a over-the-counter product that treats bacterial vaginitis, is that true?

I've been told that there is a over-the-counter product that treats bacterial vaginitis, is that true?

Boric Acid?: I would recommend the standard treatment of oral or vaginal flagyl. Intravaginal boric acid 600 mg at bed time provides symptomatic relief. The frequency can be gradually decreased to once or twice a week. You could try a probiotic preparation such as vsl #3 with 110 billion colonies of probiotic bacteria per capsule, but this therapy is unproven. ...Read more

There is anything available to treat bacterial vaginitis BV over the counter?

Not effective: Ascorbic acid, Acetic Acid gel, and povidone-iodine vaginal douches can be tried, but their use is not recommended, as they are significantly less effective than Metronidazole or clindamycin. Probiotics may be tried, but their content is not standardized, and they are often of poor quality. There is no evidence for or against their use to treat bv. ...Read more

Clinically, it's very unlikely to cause lingering vaginal bleeding from its infection.

Is it possible to cure BV and yeast with probiotic capsules alone. I've been treated twice for vaginitis and still have symptoms.

Is it possible to cure BV and yeast with probiotic capsules alone.  I've been treated twice for vaginitis and still have symptoms.

Anything possible: But exceedingly unlikely. If you are getting recurrence of BV you may want to have your partner apply antibiotic ointment or cream to the surface of his penis. He may be recolonizing you. There are no proven "natural" ways to address this. Probiotics are certainly not bad, will change the character of your stools, and may even inhibit recurrence but are not curative. ...Read more

I have been having severe itching down there there on the skin area. Been treated for everything from yeast to vaginitis. Any ideas what else it is?!?

I have been having severe itching down there there on the skin area. Been treated for everything from yeast to vaginitis. Any ideas what else it is?!?

A few questions: What kind of materials your underwear is made of? Do you often wear tight, synthetic pants? Do you wash the whole area too much/too often or too "deep"? Does it get better wearing skirts (and if feasible sometimes, without underwear)? Humidity or obsessive hygiene, along with too heavy/hot bed covers may play a role. Does a hairdryer improve the itching? (careful..) good luck ! ...Read more
