I have had bacterial vaginosis repeatedly and it won't go

Customer Question

Hello.I have had bacterial vaginosis repeatedly and it won't go away. I have tried the pills and the gel and they both don't work. They would "cure" it for a few days but then it would come back. Is there ANYTHING that can be recommended to help get rid of it all together? I read somewhere apple cider vinegar can help but some have had no results from it and it recurs again. Thank you!

in this case another laboratory examination of smear including a so called antibiogram is strongly recommended. So it will be found out if there are resistances and which medication will be successful. Treatment then depends on the result.

Hope you get well soon, kind regards,
