Bacterial Vaginosis - Other Treatment

Some women have used Lactobacillus acidophilus in yogurt or supplements to treat 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.4

More research is needed to find out if the types of lactobacillus normally found in a healthy vagina may work to treat bacterial vaginosis.
