Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you to start with one of the over the counter vaginal pH kits. This test which you can do yourself will help to decide whether the symptoms you are having are more likely to be caused by bacterial vaginosis or yeast. If the test indicates that yeast is more likely, you could certainly start with one of the over the counter yeast preparations such as Monistat. If the pH is more consistent with BV, you are going to need antibiotics and a visit to the doctor is a good idea. Of course you could simply start with the doctors office too! Good luck! Dr B
