What Treatments Are Available for Bacterial Vaginosis?

There are 2 types of bacterial vaginosis treatments widely used today. Antibiotics and home remedies.

First time sufferers are usually given antibiotics such as metronidazole (Flagyl) or Clindamycin.  They are usually prescribed in the form of vaginal cream or you can also opt for oral medications for these.

The purpose of antibiotics is to kill off all the good and bad bacterias found in the vaginal flora and hopefully bacterial vaginosis will go away. This usually works well for first time suffers.

But there are a lot of cases where the woman complained about recurring bacterial vaginosis after the first one was cured, usually about 1-2 months earlier. This is the time where antibiotics will not work as effectively as it was before which leads us to the second kind of bacterial vaginosis treatment – home remedies.

Home remedies are becoming popular these days because of effectiveness. They range from yogurt, liquid probiotics, folic acid supplements, apple cider vinegar and oatmeal poultice.
