In brief: Suppressive meds
1 in 10 women will experience recurrent bacterial vaginosis.
Usually when that happens, is comes at about the same time each cycle. When patients have frequent recurrences, it is easily managed by using an oral medication to clear up the infection, then take that medication one day each week to prevent the recurrences. Yeast infections can arise in a similar manner, and can also be suppressed.
