In brief: Need evaluation

You should see your gyn for evaluation and treatment.
The evaluation process is very quick, involving examination of a vaginal sample under the microscope.

In brief: Single dose

Bacterial vaginosis (bv) is usually treated with an oral antibiotic taken twice each day for seven days.
That same antibiotic can be taken in a higher single dose, and still do the job of clearing up bv. You will need to have a prescription from your doctor for the medication. If you find that the BV returns shortly after being treated, ask your doctor about suppressive antibiotic therapy.
