I have been suffering with Bacterial Vaginosis for many months now and is really getti ng me down, i thought it was a UTI but im getting a fishy odour now. My gp prescribed me a cream to insert which help for 10m days, now the odour is back. Please can u recommend something, or herbal
You need to see your GP again. If the cream didn't work to clear up the infection, you might need an oral antibiotic. I had BV while pregnant, and they gave me Clindamycin (generic for Cleocin) and I had an allergic reaction to it. They then gave me Flagyl, and it cleared it right up. I would try to get a round of oral antibiotics.
Bacterial vaginosis is the most common cause of abnormal vaginal odor and discharge. Diagnosis can be confirmed after pelvic examination and microscopic examination of the vaginal discharge. Treatment is by metronidazole and clindamycin. They are available as pills or vaginal gels or creams.
