You have been diagnosed with BV; you now have to choose a bacterial vaginosis treatment. There are 3 options you have to choose from, you can go with your doctors antibiotics, an over the counter medication or natural home remedy options. Below I’ll review each of these options for you.
The first option you’ll be presented with is from your doctor in the form of a prescription for an antibiotic. These antibiotics come in either oral form or a cream you insert in the vagina. This is an effective way to treat your BV, if only for a short period. As these prescription medications kill off all bacteria the recurrence rate is very high. These antibiotics can also get costly, especially if you need to purchase multiple doses for reoccurring outbreaks.
Be sure to examine this particular blog post cautiously, the problem and the suggestions have lots of differences. The second option one can choose are one of the over the counter options. These generally come in the form of a cream that’s inserted into the vagina. The effectiveness of these over the counter products are hit and miss and many women find that the vaginosis reoccurs after use these products.
The third option and the one I found most effective is the use of natural home remedies. These natural options for treating BV work towards creating the proper balance in your body, not to just cure your current outbreak but to prevent future outbreaks as well. These home remedies are also far more cost effective than either of the other options listed.
As you can see, when choosing a bacterial vaginosis treatment you have many options to choose from. You need to way out the factors as to what is best for you. In my opinion I would recommend natural remedies hands down. Between being more affordable and far more effective and long lasting this is by far the best treatment path.
