Bacterial Vaginosis Treatment

Jan 22

Bacterial vaginosis is not similar to a yeast infection. A bacterial vaginosis infection may last up to two weeks. Because of this long duration of the infection, it may take longer to treat. But if you keep it clean and avoid the sex that’s responsible for your vaginal infection, the problem should clear up in a week to ten days.

Natural treatments for vaginal health are available. Boric acid vaginal suppositories provide relief from vaginal bacterial infections like bacterial vaginosis (BV). Boric acid vaginal suppositories work by eliminating yeast and restoring vaginal pH levels to normal, thus reducing vaginal discharge.

Vaginal Suppositories

These vaginal suppositories can be used in conjunction with antibiotics prescribed by your doctor. Boric acid vaginal suppositories are available over the counter at pharmacies, drug stores and health food stores. Look for vaginal suppositories that contain boric acid or potassium hydroxyborate as the active ingredient.

The vaginal suppository must be inserted into the vaginal canal to make sure it touches your vaginal walls directly. A tampon can also be soaked in boric acid vaginal suppository fluid and inserted into the vaginal canal.

Using vaginal creams or vaginal boric suppositories is easy, but you should always consult your doctor before using vaginal health remedies to cure vaginal infections like bacterial vaginosis (BV). Doctors can prescribe antibiotics that are strong enough to kill bacteria that cause BV.

Doctors can also tell you if vaginal health remedies like vaginal suppositories will interfere with the antibiotics. These vaginal suppositories help vaginal infections heal faster and give your body a chance to fight off vaginal infections caused by organisms that cause BV and other vaginal infections like vaginal yeast infection (candida).

Vaginal Bacteria Treatment

One of the best ways to treat vaginal bacteria, bacterial vaginosis (BV) and vaginal yeast infection is through home care products for women’s health. Vaginal suppositories are best used for vaginal infections in women who cannot take oral medication or do not wish to take oral medication for treatment of bacterial vaginosis (BV) or yeast infection.

Your doctor may also recommend an acidophilus supplement taken orally to restore healthy vaginal flora. If you do not cure vaginal infections like vaginal yeast infection (candida) or bacterial vaginosis (BV) using vaginal suppositories, vaginal creams and vaginal health remedies, your doctor may prescribe vaginal antibiotics that are strong enough to kill the bacteria that causes BV. Your doctor will tell you how often to take vaginal suppositories, vaginal creams or vaginal health remedies to cure vaginal yeast infection (candida) and bacterial vaginosis (BV).
