Hi. I'm not sure if you mean each time your infection lasted two months or if you were getting them every two months, and I'm also not sure which infection you're talking about because you have the names of both bacterial vaginitis and yeast infection in your question, but here's what I can tell you based on my experience. I was getting infections for 9 months at the rate of one per month or more and my doctor, without doing any tests, was diagnosing yeast infection and giving me fluconazole and then monistat. Finally I swithced to a new OB/GYN and she took a culture and said I was actually negative for a yeast infection and had bacterial vaginosis. She said if someone gets these kinds of infections more than 3 times per year (And I got 3 in four months with my second doctor) then they need to be treated as a recurrent patient not just for each episode.
Now I'm going on a 4-month preventative medicine cycle where I take metronidazole gels and change my diet and take this thing called ginseng violet for four months (not every single night, of course). Anyway, my suggestion to you is if you have been dealing with this for two years and you're not getting results from your doctor, try switching doctors, or maybe bring this few-month-long treatment thing up with your doctor. Hope this helps.
I had recurrent vaginal infections for about 1 year and half. I was put on a Diflucan capsule remedy. One every week for 4 weeks, one for 3 weeks out of 4, one every 2 weeks out of 4, one in one week out of 4. I had to do this about 2 times. Then it finally went away.
I think you need to find yourself another gynecologist that test you to see what you have before you start meds. Try to find a women they seem to know more about this. I had a man gyne and he sent me to a woman gyne.
Also one thing to change avoid sugar, wear white cotton underwear only, use white toilet paper not recycle kind and eat yogurt.
Hope this helps you.
Hi I am 25 years old and have been suffering from reoccurring bv as well. I have had the same problems as you. I go to the dr. And of course get prescribed antibiotics but then end up with a yeast infection and the bv ends up eventually coming back. I have figured out the best remedy for me that has changed my life and no more dr. Visits!!! Buy a douche bottle and fill it with 1/2 3% hydrogen peroxide and the other half with water then add 3 drops of tree oil to mixture and shake well. Use this to douche with. I know douching isn't good for you but if u follow these steps it's perfectly fine for the cure of bv but never douche on a regular basis!!! After douching with the hydrogen peroxide mix pat your vagina dry. Take a tampon and dip it into organic plain yogurt with lots of live cultures in it. This will put back in the good bacteria. Take fem dophulis or any acidopholus probiotic everyday for ever lol just to maintain a good vaginal ph even after the bv is cured.
Use the peroxide douche and tampon with yogurt for 3 days. Then buy rephresh vaginal gel. Wich is inserted Into the vagina. And you should be bv free!!! Use the rephresh gel once a week to maintain and keep taking probiotics for maintenance! I hope this helps it sure has done wonders for me!!! Best of luck
Over the years I have had repeated issues with yeast infections, UTI and BV. Repeatedly treated with 1 dose of fluconazole 150 mg. Sometimes, I was given bactrim or cleocin or amoxicillin. I researched my issues and found the following: partners with diabetes have an increased amount of sugar, people who have been diagnosed with Bladder Pain Syndrome have a lower immunity, are harder to fight off infection and over use of the same antibiotics can cause even more discomfort, burning, soreness in the vaginal area. Top it off with the begin ing of menopause, hormonal changes and most importantly ... Doctors that dont want to hear and listen to your symptoms, how you track the concerns in your journal and identifying patterns..You wind up totally screwed!! With a painful, sore or horrible inflamed tussy..
It is pretty simple. As long as pH (acidity) is too high, bacteria and / or fungi (yeast) populate. If given an antibiotic, the fungi prosper. If given a fungal agent (Monistat, flucon, etc.) the bacteria prosper. Peroxide wouldn't be effective in lowering vaginal pH nor a good thing bubbling at the cervix. A douche of dilute WHITE vinegar would gently and effectively lower pH. Just a tablespoon per quart, administered with a douche tube while laying on the back in the tub.
Also, avoid various intra-vaginal hormones, herbal douches, etc. as these affect the "vaginal ecosystem", introduce undesirable "bugs" and may irritate the vaginal tissue. And make sure your partner is free of infection and as clean as you are.
In the old days, the introduction of yogurt was common, maybe not in modern times?
