I have took the pill for about 3 days now. I looked up a home try and that was one of the medicines. Anyone know about how Long it will take?
Its not going to get rid of a bacterial infection any time soon. Its good to take, but you need an antibiotic to get rid of the infection. It will help prevent yeast, but its not going to get rid of bacteria.
Probiotics are not the same thing as antibiotics. Probiotics are just other forms of bacteria-generally friendly flora or helpful bacteria but that doesnt mean they get rid of the "bad" bacteria, you HAVE to take antibiotics for that. Probiotics are good to take WITH antibiotics because antibiotics are indiscriminate in that they kill off both good and bad bacteria and so taking probiotics will help replenish the good bacteria but by themselves, probiotics will not kill harmful bacterias. See your gynecologist for the proper antibiotic.
Vh essentials probiotics with cranberry has a cream i heard other women say it's awesome and you can find it at walmart. Vh essentials probiotics with cranberry capsules should also be taken but PLEASE do not douche ever again it only pushes the bacteria back up into your vaginal area your body clean itself out after the ministration itself is a part of the process of cleaning I'm a hairstylist I work in the public with women all day every day so I to hear this and discuss this with different women all the time give it a try good luck PS a nice warm hot pad will help move the bacteria downward out of your vaginal area also good luck
As a chronic sufferer of BV for almost 20 years, I must respectfully disagree with the above. Partially, at least. Antibiotics started a horrible cycle for me. They'd treat the infection just for it to return within weeks, sometimes days, and back on antibiotics I'd go. I've read a ton about different treatments over the years, and acidophilus is the only thing that has consistently helped me, and many other women as well. Ii would say if it's one of your first few times with BV, go see your GYN but if it recurs you've already got what you need. To answer your question, I'd say about a week or so, depending in how much you're taking. You may want to look into hydrogen peroxide as well.
