PH balance. Bv is caused by a shift in your normal vaginal bacteria flora. Anything that causes a shift can cause the irritative symptoms of bv. Find out what causes your shift then you can identify the problem.
Take an antibiotic. Takking an antibiotic each time you have sexual relations and review with your physician positions that may reduce this occurance.
See your gyn. You need a culture script meds, and if you take acidolphilus pills or probiotcis daily, either of those is preventative.
Is there such a thing as too much probiotics? I try to eat yogurt daily and started taking a probiotic (25 billion) to prevent bacterial vaginosis.
Very safe. We have about 100 trillion bacteria in our intestines so 25 billion is a relatively small and safe amount. Some probiotics contain much higher amounts yet are considered safe (such as VSL 3 which has 300 billion bacteria). See http://www. Health. Harvard.

It can help prevent. It but not cure it once you have it u need antibiotics either vaginal cream, vagina supp or oral pills, the yogurt must have active acidophilus cultures or u can get acidolphilus pills at any drugstore or probiotics but u must take them every day also heat and humidity in the vulva- vaginal area contribute to vaginosis, air and dryness are good.
