I've experienced 3-4 bouts of BV over the last year. They seem to come in conjunction with UTIs and hang around after that infection is gone.
Different things have worked for me at different times. I have never experienced an odor, just swelling, itchiness, dryness or thicker discharge.
What you want to do is restore the balance of good bacteria.
When the infection isn't too bad, I douche with about 40% peroxide and 60% distilled water. Do this in the shower, once in the morning, once at night. Doing this for 3-4 days worked to clear the infection when it was mild. I also took Folic Acid for a couple of weeks.
If I catch it early on, I like to use Tea Tree Remedy Suppositories (find them at health food stores, whole foods) overnight. These leave ya feeling fresh and clean, but wear a pad or old underwear. They're messy. Again, these seem to work better if you have only a mild infection or sometimes work with yeast.
Recently, I had a more annoying infection of BV. I used the suppositories for 6 nights in a row and the swelling went down, so I thought I was good. But it came back a couple of days later. I realized that I was doing everything to fight the bacteria but not supporting the regrowth of good bacteria that would restore balance.
I started taking Femdophilus 2x daily. Drinking a lot of water is always good for everything. I prefer water with lemon that supports your body's alkaline balance.
Here's what finally worked to clear an infection I'd had for 5+ weeks. Inserting YOGURT + FEMDOPHILUS. A lot of reviewers have done this with success. I skipped the tampon. I mixed a couple of tablespoons of yogurt (I had Greek in the fridge, but it doesn't matter, as long as you have plain, fresh, full of good bacteria yogurt in there) with a popped open capsule of Femdophilus. You can get a plastic syringe I suppose but you can also put your legs up against the wall and get it in there.
Do this right before bed and put on some old undies. Shower in the morning. You can wear a pad during the day if you wish as you will have some discharge.
I did this for 3 nights and saw significant improvement each day. By day 3 I had a lot of discharge as if everything was getting clean. Since then I've been fine and felt healthy again!
