In brief: BV is recurrent.

Bacterial vaginosis affects every women who is sexually active.
Sometimes the antibiotics kill the normal organism in your vagina too, setting you up for a yeast infection or more bv. Try a low pressure douche (bag no higher than your umbilicus) of "probiotic" milk from your local grocer twice a day for a few days, and after intercourse.
