I have been diagnosed with BV several times. I've taken Flagyl & some vitamins that helped but it eventually comes back what can help? Will yogurt too?

If your doc is unfamiliar with these, find a gyn with interest in infectious diseases. ...Read more

My 14 year old daughter has recurring bacterial vaginosis.  She has taken flagy serveral times but the infection and foul odor always return, usually after her period.  Are there any home remedies or vitamins we can try to eliminate this ongoing issue?

Period time: Make sure she takes full course of antibiotics. Change tampons frequently and keep the area clean. I don't think that there is any vitamin available for this. She is only 14 years old, and may need some instructions from you (mother) how to manage during periods. ...Read more
