Whats A Natural Way To Keep Bacterial Vaginosis Gone
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.

Nope: You need a correct diagnosis (culture). Probiotics may help prevent, but not treat.
See a gyn: And get diagnosed properly as there are many different bacteria that can cause BV and different meds are required depending on what type u have and you could have other bacteria also, there is no good home txment and not advisable either.
Limit sugar: Additionally vulvar care is very important. No douching, no introduction of soaps or other cleaning agents between the labia. 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.See 2 more doctor answers
BV: Bv is a condition caused by an overgrowth of normal vaginal flora as a result of a pH change. This change is a manifestation of a possible decreased immune system, which could be a temporary condition. Probiotics, anti-oxidants, vitamins, omega 3 are some supplements one can take to increase the immune system. Avoid sugar, artificial sweeteners, minimize stress to name a few.See 1 more doctor answer
For a week I have had itching, discharge, foul odor, and painful sex. Could this be bacterial vaginosis? If so, what are some natural remedies?
Can' t diagnose: When the cause isn't for certain - really recommend having it evaluated. Need to make sure you don't have an STD.

Ive been on Metronidazole for 3 out 7 days bacterial vaginosis. The odor has only gotten worse. I wanted to know if its wise to try natural treatment?
No: If it is getting worse go back to see your doctor.
Alternative Treatmnt: Intravaginal boric acid, a 600 mg capsule once nightly for 14 days may be able to help with your problem. This medication is not FDA-approved for this purpose and must be made by a compounding pharmacy. Boric acid can be fatal if swallowed rather than used intravaginally, so be careful around children. Still it's a worthwhile option when all the antibiotics don't work.See 1 more doctor answer
Perils of the Vagina: Some people just get recurrences of things,like UTIs or shitty boyfriends.But in your case it could be due to a re-infection or failure of the drugs used to treat it.A longer course of therapy and use of the vaginal gels may help eradicate those bugs.Some asdvocate chronic recurrent therapy.Discuss this with your doc.By the way the name should be Vaginal Bacteriosis. Bacteria don't have vaginas.
Chlamydia vs. BV: I would have to say this would be highly unlikely, providing that the doctor sent urine and/or vaginal swabs for lab analysis. If no testing was done, it's possible that the doctor could misdiagnose.
I keep having bacterial vaginosis is there something that i could by over-the-counter or something recommended to take daily I have tried all rx?
Boric Acid/Probiotic: For BV i would recommend the standard oral or vaginal flagyl. Intravaginal boric acid 600 mg at bed time provides symptomatic relief. It can be gradually tapered to 1 or 2x/ week. You could try a probiotic such as vsl #3 oral packets or vaginal lactobacillus rx, but this therapy is unproven. Using condoms for all sexual contacts and using bcp's have been shown to prevent BV recurrences.
