Hello,

You might have Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) which is an over growth of your normal vaginal bacteria - and you can try over the counter products such as Vagisil or RepHresh (correct spelling), and if this does not help, you might need a prescription from your doctor to either Flagyl (metronidazole) or Cleocin (clindamycin).

If you have additional questions, please ask, and Please CLICK on ACCEPT, thank you.
