Gardenerella vaginalis

Posted , 2 users are following.

I'm wondering if gardenerella vaginalis is the same thing as bv or is it two separate things I've been to the gyno and they treated me for bv and gave me metronidazole 500 mg to take twice daily for seven days but it's not fully gone the smell isn't as bad anymore but their still is discharge so im wondering if those two thing are the same or not so i can go back to the doctors and asked to get treated for gardenerella

    What worked for me (I'm sexually active) I took 1 acidophilus (jarrow women's), 2 folic acid, and 2 vitamin d3 two hours after taking each dose of metronidazole for the entire 7 days, and even after you finish the medication for about 2 months. I also inserted 1 purfem vaginally each night for 10 nights. You have to rebuild your good bacteria after the medication wipes everything out (good and bad bacteria). I haven't had any recurrence of BV since I did this method. Stop douching with peroxide, it's a temporary fix. Just work on rebuilding your good bacteria.
