In brief: See below

I assume you are referring to bacterial vaginosis (previously bacterial vaginitis).
After treatment with metronidazole, Clindamycin or tinidazole, you could try oral and/or vaginal administration of lactobacillus containing probiotic preparations which have had variable sucess. Consider having your sexual partner treated with Metronidazole or Clindamycin although this is of unproven benefit.
