I'm 19 & I have been having bv for about 6 months. Recently it has been coming before my periods every month for the past 4 months! My doc always prescribed me metronidazole pills! I hated the side affects and it always brong bv back! So of course I googled and tried probiotics (maximum strength cvs brand) I had bv before my period started so one day before it started I bought plain white chobani Greek yogurt bc it contains the good bacteria. So I soaked a tampon left it in for 3 hrs. I started my period the next morning so I couldn't put more yogurt.. Then I bought probiotics and started taking them for 4 days .(1 a day )while I was on my period , after I got off I put more yogurt just inside not with a tampon and left it for an hour. And now I'm bv free! :) probiotics work!
