Are there any self-help remedies for Bacterial Vaginosis, available without a prescription?

You can overcome Bacterial Vaginosis without resorting to antibiotics if you take steps to restore the natural acidity of vaginal secretions, replenish friendly Lactobacillus bacteria, and correct any vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can reduce immunity – especially low vitamin D levels which are associated with Bacterial Vaginosis.

The first step is to restore the acid balance of the vagina which will allow healthy bacteria to flourish. A number of products are available to help prevent and treat Bacterial Vaginosis. Most contain lactic acid, while some also contain glycogen to provide fuel to promote the healthy growth of the normal bacteria (but cannot be used by anaerobic bacteria). GYNALAC contains these two ingredients as well as Sodium Hyaluronate which has a long-lasting moisturizing effect and promotes wound healing by enabling cells to retain moisture in the tissue.
