Most women seek out treatment for bacterial vaginosis as soon as they find out they have an infection. Bacterial vaginosis is an infection of the vagina that produces a fishy-smelling discharge as its main symptom. Deciding on a treatment can be confusing at first, because there are so many options. However, once you understand all the choices, it's usually obvious which kind of treatment will work best for you.

Treating bacterial vaginosis with antibiotics

Antibiotics are a common treatment for bacterial vaginosis. Most of these are only available with a prescription from a doctor. Antibiotic treatment comes in the form of a pill, the most common of which is called Flagyl. Other prescription options for treatment for bacterial vaginosis are creams and gels. Each type has advantages and disadvantages. Antibiotic pills aren't as messy as creams, but are hard for some women to swallow and can have unpleasant side effects, like yeast infection. In contrast, creams and gels only rarely have negative side effects, but they're messy to apply.

A natural alternative to prescriptions

If none of the prescription medications sound like the right fit for you, there are natural options. Secret Ceres is an organic alternative that can be used as treatment for bacterial vaginosis. Its main ingredients are pomegranate, kaolin, and drip stones. The combination of the ingredients helps to balance the vaginal flora, which is what heals bacterial vaginosis. When the vaginal flora aren't balanced, unhealthy bacteria can grow unchecked by healthy bacteria, causing infection. Restoring the normal conditions of the vagina will eliminate infection. Secret Ceres also cleanses and tightens the vagina, and improves the aroma and consistency of your body's natural secretions. These side effects are good for you, unlike the potential side effects of oral antibiotics. Since the Secret Ceres applicator is in the form of a stick you insert into the vagina, there's no need to deal with messy creams and gels either.

A recurring problem

After treatment for bacterial vaginosis, the problem can sometimes come back. This recurrence is noted in around half of the women who receive treatment for bacterial vaginosis. If symptoms reappear, it usually happens within around 12 months of the initial treatment. Doctors don't quite understand why bacterial vaginosis has such a high rate of recurrence. Most likely, some vaginas are just more sensitive to unbalanced conditions than others. Using Secret Ceres regularly will keep your vaginal flora balanced and make bacterial vaginosis less likely to return. Treatment for bacterial vaginosis doesn't have to be difficult. Always check with your doctor before starting a treatment plan.
