Hormonal imbalances can produce many untoward effects on your body. Inconsistent sleep patterns, lack of exercise, stress and a poor diet can all affect your hormones. Lifestyle changes and hormonal treatment all can help in controlling hormonal imbalances.  A nutritious diet, regular exercise and a regular sleep schedule are helpful. Doctors often prescribe hormonal pills for regularizing the periods. A normal vaginal pH is 3.8 to 4.5, slightly acidic. If a woman has vaginal pH above normal, the most likely reason is bacterial vaginosis .Consult your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!

Hi doc my bacterial smear cam back and  i have:
Gram + Cocci = Few
Gram - Bacilli = 3(+)

I had already taken (Dequalinium chloride suppository/Fluomizin 10mg) for 6 days and flagystatin before they don't seem very effective after re-check i still have 3+ on bacilli, no improvement.

I am waiting for the results of my culture & sensitivity. is there other treatment options i can take. thank you for the information that you have provided.
