Bacterial Vaginosis Symptoms are bad

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've had bacterial Vaginosis for over a week now. First, I was prescribed Metrogel Pills. 2x a day for 7 days. My symptoms are insane to say the least. Extreme burning and itching. Went back to see my primary doctor and was put on Metrogel Gel with Suringe, once a day (before bed), been on that for 4 days now; symptoms are still just as bad. I messaged my doctor today to see if I could do anything for the symptoms. They prescribed me Diflucan, once today and once again in 72 hours. Is there anything more I should be doing? My symptoms are so bad I could scream and nothing seems to be working. I have to be on my feet for 8 hours a day at work and work for the next 5 days. I guess what I'm looking for is some relief. It's to the point where I just break down and cry, and that's bad because I'm usually someone who can handle a lot of pain. Thanks in advance!

    I would take some probiotics containing lactobacillus so it promotes good bacteria growth. You have a high chance of getting a yeast infection once you've finished with your medication.

    Also! re-occurrence is completely normal and can be really stressful until you manage it with a medication that works for you and if you know what your triggers are so you can prevent the next infection.

    Dear Elisabeth,

    Rest as much as possible. Use Hydorgen Peroxide Solution (bought online or locally in pharmacies (may have to ask for it). Use this inside the vagina. It is a strong antiseptic that is all. Then as well buy a tub of Greek Natural Yoghurt and do the same.

    Rest as much as possible. Tell yourself you are going to get better.
