Patient Comments: Bacterial Vaginosis - Treatment

What treatments were effective for bacterial vaginosis?

I agree Janelle that acidophilus especially, Lactobacillus acidophilus is key. What I found that worked extremely well for bacterial vaginosis is a product called Femanol. You can find it online or at Amazon. I of course can't promise it well work as good for you as it did for me, but I am very pleased with it.

Acidophilus and probiotics and a ton of water worked for me almost instantly but I found I had to continue taking the supplements after symptoms had cleared. Still it worked.

39 years old with BV for the first time after being on various antibiotics for other health issues on and off for about 8 months plus having a new boyfriend that I have my doubts about and are now broken up. Got on the clindamycin cream for about 4 days didn't work. Flagyl 500mg for 7 days, betadine douche (one time only), philips probiotic pill(once daily), Summers Eve PH balance wash to cleanse and Calmoseptine Ointment for the ragging itch/burn on the outer parts of the vagina. Went back for a checkup and now clear! Good luck

I am a first-time BV patient, and my doctor just prescribed boric acid vaginal suppositories. It apparently works well, especially for those sufferers who have failed with other treatments. The only side effect may be irritation where the infected area is. It is suggested that vitamin E oil, lanolin, or even Vaseline can be placed on those sensitive tissues prior to administering the boric acid.

One of the good treatments for all bacterial vaginal problems is treatment with Cervugid ovules. That treatment is good for candida, trichomoniasis, Gardnerella, human papilloma virus (HPV) and more.
