Bacterial Vaginitis
I have been suffering with Bacterial Vaginitis for almost two years, i have tried every antibotic and cream prescribed by my Doctors eventually i went to a gynie who prescribed me betadine douche the product worked but the problem has recently reoccured! I am back on the Betadine Douche .... i did a little research of my own, and discovered that douching could be the cause of this problem .... my husband has been very supportive and understanding but it is effecting our sex life and making me very unhappy .... Please advise what can i do?!

I'd suggest that you ask your doctor to take a swab to see exactly what type of infection you have and what treatment is needed.
