Hello doctor,

I met a gynecologist, and the doctor diagnosed that I have bacterial vaginosis. The doctor recommended antibiotics for a week or taking a dose of Solosec. For a minor infection, both of these options seem rather extreme for me, and I am wondering if there is a way to eliminate the disease naturally. I can find different online suggestions for probiotics and boric acid suppositories. I am expecting if there is a plan you can recommend. Kindly help.



welcome to Bacterial vaginosis(BV) is a general issue in women. It does not cause any serious problem, but it is irritating with abnormal vaginal discharges, itching, and odor. If you do not get treated in an early stage, then infections may spread to the uterus, fallopian tube, and ovaries which leads to infertility, pelvic inflammatory disorders or other complications. It may be associated with yeast or fungal infections. It can be managed naturally through Ayurvedic medicines and Yoga practices. The probable causes are Infection, unprotected and unhygienic intercourse, unhygienic undergarments and irregular cleaning of the vaginal area. Investigations to be done are vaginal swab test and CBC (complete blood count). Treatment plan include 1. Internal hygiene is very important along with medications in such kind of issues. 2. Wash your vaginal area regularly with Triphala Kwatha twice a day. Allow it to dry apply Himalaya Vgel and take the following oral medicines with the consent of your doctor. 1. Tablet Purim 1 tablet + Tablet Lukal 1 tablet + Tablet Gandhaka Rasayana 1 tablet thrice a day with warm water after meals. 2. M2 tone syrup 0.67 tbsp twice a day before food. Preventive measures include 1. Avoid spicy and fried junk foods. 2. Maintain your internal hygiene. 3. Use properly cleaned undergarments. Do these things and provide your valuable feedback after 15 days.
