I wrote a short post a couple days ago entitled "Metronidazole," but meant to write "Fluconazole." Not sure how I got that wrong. I'm sorry if that post confused anyone. Luckily someone pointed this out. Anyway, I thought I'd mention that the anti-fungal Fluconazole really did wonders for me. I went to my nurse practitioner telling her about my struggles with recurring BV (over 2 years). I also suffered from an abnormally high presence of yeast in my v. secretions. She put me on Fluconazole because it was a cheap alternative to other anti-fungals, with the warning about it being hard on my liver. She wanted to treat the yeast first before the BV. I took one pill each day for 2 months, then one every other day for 2 weeks. During this period I had NO symptoms of BV whatsoever. Even after going off of the antifungal, the BV never returned. This was two years ago and I'm still good down there - no yeast, no BV. Tried other things before this - vitamins, coconut oil, boric acid. I think these treatments are largely pseudosciences. Has anyone else had any luck treating their BV with consistent, long term use of an antifungal?
