What is the natural way of permanently cure bacterial  vaginosis and its foul smell?

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.

What is a good and natural cure for bacterial vaginosis?

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.

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.

Why do I keep getting bacterial vaginosis?

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.

Could dr s misdiagnose chlamydydia for bacterial vaginosis?

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.
