Bacterial Vaginosis

Conventional treatment of Bacterial Vaginosis

Once you are diagnosed with Bacterial Vaginosis, you will normally start taking over-the-counter products or antibiotics for you. To understand how they will help you, let us understand what is bacterial vaginosis deeper.

The following video talks about pros and cons of antibiotics and natural treatments for bacterial vaginosis.

The vagina houses both good and bad bacteria. The "good" bacteria helps your vagina get rid of unwanted organic substances and keeps it clean and healthy. And the "bad" bacteria is the bacteria that is infecting you right now, for example, your Bacterial Vaginosis bacteria.

Now that you understand what is bothering you, you must do something to kill the bad bacteria. That is where your antibiotics are going to help you. And also possibly hurt you.

Antibiotics do not care whether the bacteria is good or bad. They blindly kill all the bacteria including the good ones, and also the bad ones. And this is when the harm starts coming in.

If your BV is chronic, which is the case is almost half the times, then the antibiotics are going to give you temporary relief. You shall often find the vaginosis to recur after 15-30 days of quiet and nice span following the antibiotic. Tough call.

Summary: Treatments with antibiotics such as Metronidazole are effective but the condition may recur, unless your vagina self-heals by sheer luck!!

Hence, the bottom line is that, in my opinion (I am not a doctor but am a rational person with reasonable practical intelligence and have had my share of reading and interaction with others who have had the condition) antibiotics are reasonable cures for regular bacterial vaginosis but usually fail for the recurring one. This is why natural therapies are good. A natural therapy, with natural elements and appropriate organic supplements, is the only way that you can enjoy a permanent and completely safe cure. And natural therapies are surprisingly cheap, easy, quick and "non-embarrassing" - you don't have to discuss the symptom here and there. They the best options in the longer run in my opinion.

Having said that, the following are some of the over-the-counter products that have been doing has been doing well in recent times.

Personally, I prefer natural cure systems. They are the best in terms of effectiveness as well as not affecting your health otherwise as any side-effect. Also, I have seen multiple great books helping women with the condition to (a) naturally eliminate the issue as well as (b) maintain lifestyle so tht the issue has the least possible chance to recur. I discuss a lot of this on the natural treatment for bacterial vaginosis page here on this website. These books are typically priced under or just over $10, so easy to afford. I suggest a combination of the lifestyle techniques taught in any of the books (which I have mentioned on the other page here) along with the supplements/probiotics that I have given above to be used. That will normally suffice, and cost anywhere between 30-50 bucks all total. Fast (3-5 days), and much less expensive than a full-blown medical process. And health-friendly too.
