I am out of the country and I got bacterial vaginitis. Will cefprozil 500 mg cure it?

I am out of the country and I got bacterial vaginitis. Will cefprozil 500 mg cure it?

No, don't use it: Cefprozil is exactly the wrong kind of antibiotic. It won't work and could make BV worse. It might improve symptoms briefly, but then your BV may be even harder than usual to treat. If you've had BV before and same symptoms, try to get metronidazole 500 mg twice daily x 7 days or tinidazole 1 g daily x 5 days (more $). Pharmacists in European countries often will dispense prescription antibiotics. ...Read more

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
