Any medics in da house? Fecking BACTERIAL VAGINOSIS!!!

I've had this on and off for about 18months (see previous thread) but now I'm sick of it! 2 rounds of metronizale haven't worked. The Balance Activ pessaries work but then it comes back.

I did a douche last night of hydrogen peroxide and then inserted the following tablets: folic acid, vitamin c and acidophilus. I am also taking these orally.
My main question is whether it is right to try to kill the bad bacteria (with the hydrogen perioxide & acid) at the same time as trying to replenish the good (with acidophilus) or should I do acid for a week THEN acidophilus?

I am drinking apple cider vinegar and have cleaned my diet right up.

Any advice would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance

FYI: I have been tested for STIs & thrush and am clear.

Not a medic but posting to bump and offer support. I've had it at least twice close together after taking metranidazole. I thought I had it recently but it turned out to be thrush instead after taking a swab test.

Prior to that, I did most of the things that you were doing but I couldn't tell whether it was making it better or worse. Sorry not to be of much help, I hope that someone with more knowledge comes along soon.
