I get bacterial vaginosis several times a year and usually have to resort to seeing a doctor for a prescription of Flagyl or Metrogel. This time I was on vacation and couldn't see one for about 4 more days. Desperate for relief, I found that garlic does indeed work. I refuse to douche so this was really my only option. Several sites suggested inserting garlic vaginally. One site suggested wrapping a clove in thin medical gauze before inserting it so you can pull it out easily. Another suggested piercing the clove with your fingernail to release the juices. I left mine in for two hours. The rest of the day and the next morning were symptom free! It did not hurt at all and I didn't have to insert the clove very far for relief.
