I've been diagnosed with Gardnerella. Is this a reoccuring condition and what can I do to prevent it? What is the cause and what is the best treatment?

It can recur. It is often due to the natural protective bacteria in the vagina being depleted. This is usually immunological. You can try to prevent stress and you can try yoghurt with live cultures. The gardnerella itself needs to be treated with antibiotics.
