Some women have used
Lactobacillus acidophilus in yogurt or supplements to
bacterial vaginosis. But dairy lactobacillus does not
work for bacterial vaginosis. This is because dairy lactobacillus is not the
kind of bacteria that normally live in the vagina.
More research is needed to find out if the types of lactobacillus normally found in a healthy vagina may work to treat bacterial vaginosis.
