Bacterial Vaginosis - can I do anything other than take antibiotics?

Cos I don't want to start Thrush up again

Been really stinky after sex and period for a while, so asked Dr. today when I went for new pill prescription.

she's prescribed antib's, and a fluconozole for when the thrush comes back.

Just wondered if anyone had an alternative to me taking the antib's.

Is it like thrush? I know not eating too much sugar and fruit is helpful for that.

It is a bacterial infection, so you need the antibiotics

Drink probiotics whilst you are taking them and they should help cancel out the bad effects

Well, there is the natural yoghurt treatment. Though I'm never sure if you eat it or.............

This might be less messy than yoghurt!

Norks - never heard of this. It sounds just the ticket! Will have to remember it, just in case. smile MUCH better than yoghurt, though probably doesn't taste as nice!!!!winkwink

I think I might try the bio-fem in conjunction with the antib's.

How are you doing? If you're on the same antib's as me, I am guessing you feel like hell!
